Installing a stove instead of a gas fire..

    Hi folks..

    As the title says, I'm putting a 5kw stove in instead of a gas's a 5kw insert stove and I'm wondering if I really have to change the hearth?..

    It's a single piece granite hearth, and the shop suggested I put in a jointed one instead. Reading around online I got the impression it may not be needed, but the installer (who works with the shop) said it could crack.
