Concrete hearth on fireplace is chipping due to water. Husband tried to stop an unruly fire, and threw water in fireplace.
Earth on fireplace is white chalky, and starting to chip due to water. Need's to be repaired or maybe tiled to some sort to cover.
Any idea's how this can be repaired?
You can refinish the concrete with a number of products like quickcrete.
You just mix it up and trowel it on. You can give it a slight finish by running a inside broom over it after application.
I myself would buy some square cut natural lime stone about 1/2" thick and using a concrete blade on a circular saw you can cut the pieces to any size you want. Then cement them in place over the whole hearth. It is a very high end look, that you won't damage in the future.
Good luck and enjoy the fireplace.
