    I have a gas fireplace that I wish to cover up. I want to remove the mantle and tile and leave the fire place in tact so if it needs to go back to its original state I can do so. I am wanting to cover it up with either sheetrock or bead board wainscott. What should my concerns be?

    Almost none but the fireplace was install with some spacers on top of it about 3 or 4 inches high, no would should be put on lower than those spacers so drywall would be best directly above the it.
