I have a stone arch stuck to the wall above my wood burning stove. One of the stones has fallen off and I’m not sure how to repair it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The stone that fell weights approx 15 lbs and is roughly 14x17x7/8”.
The stones seem to be attached to the wall with some kind of cement (some of it came loose or off when the stone came down but most of it is still there). The cement itself is about as think as the stone.
Under the cement on the wall seems to be a kind of metal arch that it’s adhered to.
Any suggestions how to put this stone back up? Should I chisel down all the cement that was behind it and then use something to replace it and put the stone back up? What should I use for the cement? When I put it up how do I keep it up there until it can stay on it’s own? Sorry I’m unfamiliar with all of this and google searches weren’t finding the right info.
