    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Amy from New York on October 28, 2011
    My fireplace right now is around red bricks. If I buy this mantel do I need to buy a surround tile/granite?
    By Kevin E. on October 31, 2011

    Answer:
    This mantel does not require the separate purchase of a surround of any sort. However, you will want to make sure that both the interior and exterior dimensions work for you.

    By Joe from Ossining, NY on July 27, 2014
    Does this come with the whole mantel and side pieces or just top piece?
    By eFireplaceStore on July 28, 2014

    Answer:
    This model is a complete surround. The product includes the top shelf, breastboard, and vertical legs.
    By Paul from California on July 28, 2014

    Answer:
    This comes with the side pieces as well as the mantel. I did but some extra trim from a molding store to dress it out.
    By Carrie from Dillsburg, PA on July 28, 2014

    Answer:
    It comes with everything to make a complete mantel. side pieces, etc. We were very pleased with the quality of this item.
    By Kelly from Texas on July 28, 2014

    Answer:
    It comes with everything in the photo. All the pieces for the entire surround are included.
    By Albert from Tennessee on July 29, 2014

    Answer:
    Yes, it comes with the whole mantel and side pieces. In the picture, you see that the mantel and trim surrounds a grey stone area. You will need to supply your own stone (brick, marble, granite, etc.) surround kit. Just google "stone fireplace surround kits" to get an idea. I installed a granite surround kit, and then I installed the Empire 52 inch wooden mantel with standard trim on top of that. I am extremely pleased with how mine turned out. Hope that helps.

    By Kathy Meyer from Annapolis, Maryland on June 15, 2012
    Our current surround is 52 inches wide and 43 inches high. Will this mantel and trim fit this?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 15, 2012

    Answer:
    While the width is acceptable, the interior height of the opening is only 42" overall. It would be necessary to raise this surround with decorative trim or spacers in order to get the extra inch of clearance.

    By Kristina from Indio, CA on January 24, 2015
    I love this mantel! My fireplace is only a little over 39'' tall. Is there any way to get it cut down shorter before it ships? If not, could I cut it at home or is the material that it is made out of not for cutting?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 26, 2015

    Answer:
    While we do not have the ability to cut or modify the mantel on our end, it can most certainly be cut down in the field. A miter or circular saw will make short work of cutting the legs down to the required overall height.
    By Keith from Sycamore, IL on January 26, 2015

    Answer:
    Anyone with a saw would be able to cut the side down to accommodate a shorter fireplace.
    By Susan from Long Island, NY on January 26, 2015

    Answer:
    We had ours installed by a carpenter during a kitchen renovation gone wild. Both the columns and the breast plate were cut down to accommodate the fireplace insert we had. It was an easy fix for an outdated fireplace that now looks beautiful! The carpenter even commented on how great the mantle looks for the price!

    By Duncan from Los Angeles on March 20, 2014
    I have a Monessen SBV Radiant B-Vent 42 inch - CUI-500 SBVNSC and would like to know if this mantle will fit this fireplace?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 20, 2014

    Answer:
    Reviewing the dimensions of your fireplace, this mantel can indeed be installed in conjunction with the unit mentioned. A small apron of noncombustible finishing material can be used between the unit and the mantel legs.

    By John from Schaghticoke, NY on April 12, 2015
    How wide is each leg on each side of this Empire wooden mantel with trim?
    By Brennan W. on April 13, 2015

    Answer:
    Each leg is 6.25" wide.

    By Ellen from Sacramento, CA on January 28, 2012
    My fireplace, with brick surround, is only 36 inches high. Can the height of this product be trimmed, at the bottom perhaps, to fit a shorter surround?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 30, 2012

    Answer:
    This mantel features hardwood construction and can indeed be trimmed down.

    By Barbara from Leawood, KS on January 4, 2015
    Would this surround work as a faux fireplace for staging?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 5, 2015

    Answer:
    The surround itself could indeed be used for this purpose. You would only need to construct a fireplace alcove within the surround borders.

    By Danielle from Barnegat, NJ on December 8, 2013
    I'm trying to figure out what size mantel kit we need. We have marble around the fireplace that measures 55" width x 42" height. Can you give us some advice on this?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 9, 2013

    Answer:
    This surround could overlay your marble without an issue, but additional molding would be needed to cover any gaps that may result around the surround, if the marble projects from the wall.

    By Layla from Kings Park on November 12, 2011
    Is there a casing inside to fit over my mantle bricks that extend from the face of the fireplace?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 14, 2011

    Answer:
    This mantel is not meant to be used in a way that you have described. It is a flush profile mantel meant to go up against a combustible wall in which a fireplace is framed.

    By Becky from Decatur, AL on June 22, 2013
    The rectangular part of my fireplace is 43" by 36". Is a 52" mantel large enough that you will be able to see the brick around it?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 24, 2013

    Answer:
    This mantel is indeed large enough that a 4 inch skirting of brick would be exposed on either side of the fireplace.

    By Candy C from New Hampshire on November 3, 2011
    I have a vent free fireplace, the dimensions are 37 1/2 wide by 34 high. Will this fit?
    By Kevin E. on November 4, 2011

    Answer:
    Absolutely. This mantel can work with a fireplace as large as 51" wide by 42" tall.

    By Becky from Decatur, AL on June 24, 2013
    Will this mantel's wood buckle under heat?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 24, 2013

    Answer:
    As long as proper clearances are maintained from the fireplace opening, this wooden mantel will not buckle. Specific clearances will be covered in the owners manual of your manufactured fireplace. If the fireplace being used is masonry, 12 inches of clearance is recommended between the bottom of the mantel and the top of the fireplace opening.

    By Amy from Redwood City, CA on October 20, 2013
    Our fireplace comes out 8 inches from the wall. Will this mantel work for us?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 21, 2013

    Answer:
    This profile mantel is designed to be used with a fireplace that is on the same plane that the mantel will be mounted to. It is not an issue if the wall surrounding the fireplace also projects forward and is wide enough to allow mounting of the surround shelf.

    By Mary from Seattle, Washington on December 11, 2011
    I have 3/8" thick tile around my fireplace. Some of it will be under the surround. Will this work for this mantel/surround?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on December 12, 2011

    Answer:
    This mantel will work just fine for your application. However, it may be necessary to shim beneath the mantel in the areas that are not attached to the tile. This will prevent the appearance of any gaps behind the mantel.

    By Chris from Tn on August 9, 2012
    I have Sheetrock wall currently surrounding my firebox. How does the Empire attach to the wall?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on August 10, 2012

    Answer:
    For installation instructions, please see this copy of the owner's manual.

    By Sam from Golden, CO on August 29, 2014
    How does this beautiful piece attach to brick?
    By eFireplaceStore on August 29, 2014

    Answer:
    The surround will arrive with several wall cleats, which must be anchored to the brick facade. A masonry bit will be needed to bore into the wall and install plastic anchors. The cleats can then be mounted in the correct locations. Once the cleats are installed, the entire surround will hang in position on the cleats.

    By Scott from New Jersey on February 27, 2014
    Would this mantle work with a vent free fireplace that we already have in house? We would like to take out old mantle and replace.
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 27, 2014

    Answer:
    This perimeter mantel can certainly be used with a vent free fireplace.

    By Suellen from Santa Clarita, CA on June 20, 2015
    Does the screen come with this Empire 52" Profile fireplace mantel?
    By Will M. on June 22, 2015

    Answer:
    This is just the mantel and will not come with the screen or any other finishing materials.
    By Fal from PA on June 22, 2015

    Answer:
    There isn't a screen. The only thing that comes in the box is the wood pieces (white in the pictures as it is primed wood) and instructions.
    By Dave from Las Vegas, NV on June 23, 2015

    Answer:
    This model doesn't come with a screen. However, the design and style of the assembled fireplace makes even a cheap screen look good. I am very pleased with my fireplace and would recommend it to all.

    By Chris from New Jersey on February 25, 2012
    Is this primed hardwood, white or ivory? Does it need to be painted or can we just keep it this color? Also are installation instructions included? If we had too can we cut this?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 27, 2012

    Answer:
    The primer is a translucent white color and will need to be painted, as it does not completely cover the wood grain on it's own.

    Detailed installation instructions are included with the mantel on delivery. You can definitely cut the breast board and mantel legs if less height is needed.

    I wasn't sure if this fireplace surround would work because my fireplace was raised off the ground and had no hearth (just tiles at floor level) However, I decided to take a chance and bought it, hoping I could build a raised hearth underneath it. Everything went perfectly, and I was able to do the entire fireplace by myself. It came with all the parts, but I found the 1 1/4-inch screws too short, so I bought longer ones, and they worked fine. This is a great buy for anyone wishing to remodel their fireplace, and I highly recommend it!
    Pros:
    Ease of installation; flexibility with installing, cost very reasonable, wood is good quality
    Cons:
    None

    This mantle completed a recent rehabbed property of our company. The existing brick fireplace needed updating and a mantel to define the fireplace. The price was excellent, shipping was prompt and our contractor had no problems with installation. We typically have the fireplace mantel as an oversight because the cost of typical mantels are pretty expensive, however, after ordering from here, we will definitely order again.
    Pros:
    Price, Prompt Shipping, Easy Installation according to our contractor
    Cons:
    None that I know of.

    The new mantle really added a presence in our great room and is such an amazing improvement over our old glazed ceramic, original fireplace. Ours was missing a couple of trim pieces (which I replaced from Home Depot) which is why only four stars, but I'm very pleased.

    Nice touch to any fireplace. Some of our own wood needed to cover some open spaces between fireplace and Mantel were used to complete look !
    Pros:
    Goes with most decor. Ready to paint any color you choose.
    Cons:
    Some open spaces not covered by whats included in kit. We needed to improvise.

    This product arrived earlier than expected, was in perfect condition and was easy to install. It is a great addition to the fireplace and brick wall that previously had a block of wood as a mantle. I will purchase again from you company when I redo my kitchen fireplace. Thanks!
