You'll need a steady supply of firewood to keep your wood burner roaring. Why not upcycle an old bookcase and place it nearby to not only add to the overall charm of the burner but keep the extra fuel to hand when you need it. Heat-Resistant Tile Adhesive: This is what you will need when installing fireplace tiles. You need a heat-resistant adhesive because very high heat can easily damage a normal adhesive. Never use organic mastic where there will be high heat. You need a thinset that can handle at least 400 degrees Fahrenheit.Plywood:For both dry and wet installations an epoxy thinset or a latex thinset is specifically made for plywood. Vitcas Heat Resistant Tile Adhesive is a ready mixed tile adhesive specially formulated for use high-temperature areas such as around the fireplace, behind wood-burning stoves, ranges, radiators, and boilers. The adhesive is made of a non-combustible inorganic material with a high-temperature resistance of up to 1000°C, ensuring a safe and secure bonding.
Waterproof Tile Adhesive: This would be used when doing an installation in an area that will frequently be getting wet like in the main bathroom or a kitchen countertop. These will be a thinset but which type depends on the surface you are setting your tile on. If you’ve opted to use tiles with a polished finish in your fire surround then do ensure that you seal them if required. The manufacturers instructions will stipulate whether the tiles need sealing or not – tiles with this kind of finish often require such an action so as to prevent them from staining. Whilst most porcelain tiles are impervious to organic matter, those with highly polished surfaces and porous tiles such as those constructed from natural stone like limestone and slate will be susceptible to staining by ash, soot or damage from an errant ember, so please do seal them. We recommend LTP Porcelain Tile Protector for the job.

Organic mastics are made with either latex or petroleum and are ready to use. Thinset adhesives are powdered and need to be mixed with liquid before they can be used. While organic mastic is much more convenient to use, thinset adhesives actually have a higher bond strength as well as weight-bearing strength. Wall Tile Adhesive Vs. Floor Tile Adhesive
