Tore down the old brick facing/hearth/mantle. Replacing it with marble. What type of mortar do I use? Apply to wallboard? Attach like ceramic tile with just mortar?

Thx ...T. Broderick

It depends on the colour of the marble. If its white marble use white modified thinset. If its green or black and sometimes red marble you have to use epoxy. These colours tend to twist and bend when you use cement/water based thin sets. And yes you put it on the same as tile..just remember its heavy and needs to be supported until it dries.
