How to measure a replacement hearth

    The majority of fireplace hearths have a boxed and lipped effect.
  • This means the bottom section of the hearth is smaller than the top section (which has an overhang) For this reason, it is important to measure the length and width of the cut out in your carpet or wooden flooring that needs to be covered
  • Simply give us the dimension you need to cover and let us do the rest
  • We will specify this on your order and ensure that you receive exactly what you need
