After I order my mantle how long does it take to ship?

Will my mantel be the exact dimension ordered?
While we do our best to source and achieve the true dimension all of our mantels are reclaimed from old structures and can have up to a 1" variance in thickness and depth, this can be due to shrinkage over time or how the material was crafted years ago.
How wide should a fireplace mantel be?
There is not an exact standard for this measurement and we will custom cut each mantel to the exact size requested. It's common for the beam to either run the full width of the stone or brick face or leave 4"-6" on both sides.
How are Fireplace Mantels attached?
We recommend hiring an experienced contractor to properly install the fireplace mantle. There are several methods and most include lag bolts designed to be used with masonry for stone installations or lag bolts that will go directly into wall studs.
