I am replacing tile on the fireplace with stone and would not like the heavy look of the surround. Can I install the box and have the stone edge up to the box eliminating the need for the surround?

Our Answer:

We would strongly recommend not to do this, as, since the face of the insert is not the shortest part, you would not be able to pull the insert out of your fireplace once it is installed. This is one of the reasons the manufacturers make these flashings and surrounds the way they do, so that the insert can be pulled out for maintenance or issues with venting.
