Hello, looking for info on refreshing my brick fireplace. I have seen some tips here on this site for prep/Painting the brick but nothing on if the fireplace can still be used. I have the glass doors that can shut and fans built in the brick to help with the heat. When the fireplace is in use the hottest brick near the firebox/glass doors was up to 200° F. If you check around 4" out from the top of the door then the hottest was 140° F. I know they make high heat paint but pretty much only black in a quart. Spray can is not feesable for such a large area. I see they redo brick fireplaces on DIY shows all the time but never say if you can still use the fireplace.
Thanks if you have some info.
