How hard is this to install?
By eFireplaceStore on August 4, 2014
Answer:The Pearl Mantels surrounds are relatively easy to install. First, you will need to assemble each mantel leg to the breastboard, using the hardware provided. Once the mantel is assembled, it will need to be stood against the wall where you intend to mount it. You will then need to mark the wall on either side of the mantel shelf in line with the cut for the wall cleat. The cut will be on the back side of the breastboard. Once marked, the wall cleat can be anchored to the wall. Lastly, the mantel assembly can be lifted slightly and mounted to the wall cleat. It should drop into position on the cleat and if marked properly, the bottoms of the mantel legs will rest against the floor.

Can I shorten the legs of this surround without affecting the style or appearance of it? I want to take off 3 inches.
By eFireplaceStore on December 2, 2014
Answer:You can indeed trim 3 inches from the bottom plinth blocks without affecting the mantel in any way. A circular saw with a fine tooth blade would be the ideal tool to use.

Is there a notch in the back of this Pearl Mantels 134 Deauville fireplace mantel surround so I am able to use tile around it or do I have to cut the tile to fit the ornate curve at the top of the opening?
By Will M. on June 18, 2015
Answer:There will be a gap or projection from the back of the mantel to the wall to allow for this.

I am Interested in a Pearl Mantel Deauville Fireplace Hearth Mantel - No 134 unfinished. My Question is I want to have electric logs because I live in a condo and that's all they allow. I'm handy and can do what ever work is needed to make them look built in (electrical/Carpentry/hearth etc), do you have any suggestions on a unit I can use with the Deauville 134 ?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 16, 2012
If you need an electric fireplace to go within this mantel, we do have a variety of options that will fit within the 48" or 58" opening width, and you would need to fill in the remaining space.
Please see these links for a couple of suggestions:

Please note that many of our electric fireplaces come with mantel cabinets. Please see our full selection of electric units at this link:

I have a hearth this mantel would sit on which is 7" tall. How tall should this be? Is 60 1/2" not too tall? The opening is 41" in width. Would the 48" work?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 23, 2012
Answer:Yes, 60 1/2" would be the total height with your 7" hearth, and the 48" width model should be sufficient for your 41" width fireplace. To be sure, you would need to verify this with the clearances stated in your owner's manual.

In the specifics of this Pearl Mantels 134 Deauville fireplace mantel surround, it call out the projection as 1-1/2 inches. What does this mean exactly?
By Will M. on June 19, 2015
Answer:The opening gap between the back of the mantel leg and the wall is referred to as the "projection."

We are hoping to build a new home in another state, and would like to use this fireplace surround. The attached photo shows the way the fireplace, with gas logs, is installed in the model: it has a tile surround, which is flush with the corner of the wall. Could the Deauville be attached over the tile? How should we measure: the outer dimensions of the tile surround? We are going to visit the design showroom (in Colorado) next week to discuss the various options for the model, and if you have any suggestions as to what question(s) we should ask the builder, we would be grateful.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on July 5, 2012
Answer:While this mantel surround can be attached over the tile surround, it would be ideal to mount the surround onto bare sheet rock. You can then finish the space between the surround and the fireplace with a decorative tile/stone of your choosing. This would keep the mantel from protruding away from the wall, as it is difficult to finish the outer edges of the mantel, due to the thickness of the tile pushing it away from the wall.
I would give the dimensions of the mantel to the builder, to give him an idea of how much area will be needed for the entire hearth project. This may also help to determine the best fireplace for your needs, if this decision has not already been made.

Does this Deauville mantel come in a 52 inch interior width? When it asks for a choice in widths, only 48" and 58" are shown. Can you advise?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 25, 2013
Answer:Pearl did offer the mantel in a 52 inch width, up until recently. It was discontinued due to lack of demand and all stock has now been exhausted. We have not yet received the updated sizing chart from the manufacturer, hence the reason the old chart is still listed on our site.
