    Was thinking about putting up some stone work . . . or faux stone . . . in back of the woodstove since the drywall there keeps cracking from the heat.

    Was wondering if anyone has used this . . . or if there would be any concerns . . . it uses an adhesive that claims to be good up to 120 degrees. I think I would also feel better about putting it on to Durock vs. sticking it up against drywall. Thoughts?

    What is your clearance that the drywall is cracking... I'd be concerned about that more than anything else..

    Clearances are not an issue . . . I actually exceeded the clearance requirements by a few inches. It's just that the Jotul Oslo is a beast of a heater!

    why not go to faux stone that uses mortar? it is fairly easy to do, I did about 3000 sq ft on the exterior of the house and inside on the steps and fireplace.
    still I would think 120 degrees would be sufficient, I do not think you would see those temps. also the cracking peeiling issue is probably more from dryness than heat IMO
