    we've done all the tiling in our new house and are getting ready to tile around the gas fireplace insert. Where does the tile go? Up against the insert or covering the edge?

    Are you sure you have an INSERT? If you do, it's installed in a wood burning fire place.
    If the unit is framed into the wall - it's a FIREPLACE.
    For the INSERT, the tile can be installed up to the original opening & BEHIND the surround for a clean look.
    If you have a gas FIREPLACE, you can tile up to the opening, but normal installations have the tile installed 1/4 to 1/2"SHORT of the opening so that you don't have any interference with the removal of the front...
    Finish off the edge with metal edge tile trim...
