What do I need to buy to mount a mantel shelf?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 16, 2013
Answer:The mantle shelves will include the wall cleat and basic hardware to mount them. However, masonry anchors will need to be purchased if the shelf is being mounted to a brick or stone facing.

Do you carry a bare wood 79” mantel shelf where I can stain the mantel to match an existing fireplace?

Answer:Unfortunately, the largest manufactured shelf that we currently offer measures out to be 72" in overall width. At this time, we do not have a supplier that can custom make a larger shelf than this, due to shipping limitations.

What kind of screws or anchors do I need in order to mount the mantel shelf into a stone wall? What is better, screws or anchors? Also, what size screws and anchors would you recommended? Is it OK to drill through the stone if I'm unable to drill into the mortar because the wall is uneven?

Answer:In order to mount the shelf on a stone wall, you will need plastic masonry anchors and screws. Coarse threaded 1 1/2 #6 or #8 screws work well. You can drill directly into the stone, but it is important to let the drill do the work and proceed slowly. Applying to much pressure can crack the stone.
