    First picture isn't a great shot since it was taken to show other work done in the room but it does have the old raised hearth and Glacier Bay insert. Second picture is before stove was put in place and the small floor shield was built to cover the edge of the laminate. Third is as it is with safety screen taken down for the shot. glacierbay.jpg

    I did a gut/remodel on the den last winter and put in a new laminate floor at time. The existing raised hearth was edged with 12 inch square slates since I was planning a different instal for the FV. Fast forward a year and plans change....took down the raised hearth, filled that space with more slate. Now I sorely wish I had put a double row of slate down. Woodstock calls for 8 inches of front clearance - I've got about 4 and that has led me to build a mini hearth pad to shield the laminate, which keeps the floor under it cool but it looks iffy on a cosmetic level. If I modify the floor I'm coming out a full 12 inches further for a full slate. Anyone have any experience with cutting back a laminate floor once it's been installed?

    And if anyone is considering slates for the hearth ......yeah they look great and are very cheap....but they are near impossible to get perfectly level. I like what I've got but doing it again I would spend the extra very few dollars and get the ceramic look a likes. And when laying out a hearth ...figure the size you think you want and then extend it by one course of tile/stone/etc. I'm yet to hear anyone say the hearth is too big though many of use say it's on the small side. (of course this applies mainly to a floor level hearth -raised ones create all sort of issues of their own.

    When I built my hearth I already had laminate flooring down. I set my skill saw to the depth of the laminate and let 'er rip. No problem at all.

    Nice install by the way
