My fireplace opening has brick that sticks out 2 1/4 inches from the drywall wall. Can the outer edge of the surround of this Pearl Mantel 195 Blue Ridge wooden fireplace mantel be flush with the drywall, and can the inner edge of the opening be cut 2 1/4 inches to be flush with the brick?

Answer:The mantel shelf and legs will be flush with the drywall around the perimeter of this mantel. There is a cavity or gap behind the legs, referred to as a "projection" of 1 1/2" to allow for the finishing materials of your choosing. Aside from this, we do not offer custom sizing for these mantels, so any alteration of this mantel would have to be done on site.

I want to set a TV on top of this mantel. I have looked but am unable to find any load limits. Can you provide possible load limits? Thank you.

Answer:We do not have an exact answer to this, as it mostly depends on the type of wall to which it is mounted. For example, being mounted into stone will hold more weight than it will if it is mounted on drywall. Also being a full surround with legs, it should hold a decent amount. Unfortunately, we just can't say an exact amount.

I found this exact Pearl Mantels fireplace mantel on another website. Will you match pricing?

We do price match and beat a competitor's price by 10%, but you will need to fill out this form.

Our brick surround is bumpy. How would this mantel attach to that? How would I seal the edges?
By eFireplaceStore on December 30, 2014
The best solution for mounting a mantel or surround to an uneven surface is to lay a bed of mortar over the brick beneath where the mantel or surround will lay. This will allow you to have a level surface to work from, while eliminating the need to seal possible gaps around the surround. A product like the Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement - 25 Pound Tub
would work well for this application.

Can I purchase this Pearl Mantels 195 mantle without the posts? Do you sell something similar to this without the posts?

Can the legs be shortened at the job site? This is too tall for us, but we love it.
By eFireplaceStore on September 9, 2014
Answer:You can indeed shorten the legs in the field. If you only need to remove an inch or two, you can simply shorten the plinths at the base of each leg. If you need to remove more and want to save the plinths, it is possible to make a cut just above the plinths and remove the length needed by making a second cut further up. The plinths can then be reattached to the now shorter legs. A bevel cut should be used for best appearance. I also only recommend doing this on the unfinished version, as the cut can be filled and concealed. It will be nearly impossible to conceal on the finished version, unless the cut is done by a skilled finish carpenter.
