I fitted a Invicta 700 mutli fuel inset stove into an existing chimney breast with a flexible flue, closure plate and cowl. Although I have used heat resistant cement and plaster around the surround of the stove I have noticed that immdiately above the stove where the chimney breast gets hot the plaster is cracking, any ideas how to solve this issue, should I have used heat resistant cement and plaster on the entire chimney breast! I didn't because I was advised that I could of just used cement render with finsih plaster but I didn't know whether that was correct, any ideas please, thanks.
