Custom fireplace mantelA fireplace is the focal point in a room, so you want to make it look great.  The furnishings in the room usually cluster around the fireplace so you can socialize with friends and family or curl up with a good book in front of the fire.  It’s a place for warmth and comfort.

We’ve built several fireplace mantels over the years, all for new fireplaces.  We feel that quality is important.  For that reason, we made a video specifically about the quality of a fireplace mantel.  You’ll learn what to look for if you’re shopping for a mantel or looking to build one yourself.  We also responded to a viewer question about how to install a fireplace mantel.  The videos are listed below.
