    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Sonya from Lanham, MD on March 31, 2017
    Is the mantle easy to hang even on a stone wall?
    By Will M. on March 31, 2017

    Answer:
    You could create a flat, even surface by using a product like Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement - 12.5 Pound Tub. If not, you will likely need to use shims when installing it so that it will project evenly from the stone. In order to mount the wall cleat, you will need a masonry bit and a hammer drill to install anchors into the masonry. Once this is complete, you can mount the mantel as you would normally.

    By Heidi from CA on May 20, 2016
    Is this real wood or faux wood?
    By Will M. on May 23, 2016

    Answer:
    This mantel shelf is constructed of pine.

    By Matt from San Diego, CA on October 28, 2013
    Do you offer this in a dark finish?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on October 28, 2013

    Answer:
    No, this mantel is only available in the color shown. We apologize for this inconvenience.

    By Jo Ellen from Fallbrook, CA on May 15, 2017
    I love this mantel, but I need a 6 inch or 5 inch tall piece of wood. 8 inches takes up too much space. Do you have this 496 Lexington in a 6 inch tall piece?
    By Will M. on May 16, 2017

    Answer:
    The Pearl Mantels 412 Shenandoah Fireplace Mantel Shelf matches this description.

    By Dennis from PA on August 12, 2017
    Can this fit over an existing mantel that is 7 inches deep, 3 inches high, 68 inches long, and already anchored into a brick fireplace?
    By Will M. on August 14, 2017

    Answer:
    The shelf may not be installed in this fashion. The mantel shelf will arrive with a mounting cleat that could be placed over your shelf, but the mantel shelf could not be hung from the cleat with an existing 3" tall shelf already in place.

    By John from Buffalo, NY on December 15, 2015
    I'm looking to install a mantel shelf in a Pool house, which is a covered but an outdoor area. It will be protected from rain and snow etc, but will be exposed to upstate New York temperatures. Will the Pearl 496 Lexington Mantel shelf be suitable? If you not can you please recommend a more suitable mantel shelf?
    By Will M. on December 15, 2015

    Answer:
    All wooden mantels will warp in this environment due to both outdoor moisture, combined with the added moisture from a nearby pool. You will need something stone or brick. The Pearl Mantels Perfection Cast Stone Mantel Shelf Natural Stone Simulation would be an excellent choice.

    By Robert from Los Altos, CA on June 14, 2016
    What other colors does this mantel come in? Where can I see them?
    By Brennan W. on June 15, 2016

    Answer:
    This mantel is available in Medium Rustic Distressed or Unifinished.

    By Stephany from Syracuse, NY on July 2, 2015
    Can this Pearl Mantels 496 Lexington wooden fireplace mantel be attached to a stone fireplace?
    By Will M. on July 3, 2015

    Answer:
    If the stones are uneven, you will likely need to use shims when installing it so that it will project evenly from the stone. In order to mount the wall cleat, you will need a masonry bit and a hammer drill to install anchors into the masonry. Once this is complete, you can mount the mantel as you would normally.
    By Mark from Austin, Tx on July 3, 2015

    Answer:
    Yes it can. You have to drill the mounting holes with the proper drill bit, but it is easy to mount. Since stone is not even, you may want to consider sealing it.
    By raj from KY on July 3, 2015

    Answer:
    Yes. We have attached to our stone wall

    By Diane from Alberta, CAN on August 27, 2014
    We have a brick floor-to-ceiling fireplace that we will be covering with a stone veneer (Eldorado Stone, Coastal Reef). After the stone veneer is installed we cannot drill into it (without risking cracking it) to install the Hanger Board for the 496 Lexington Mantel Shelf. If we install a ledger board to the brick so it will be flush when the stone veneer is installed, do you foresee any issues installing the Hanger Board and securing the 496 Lexington Mantel Shelf? Or do you have another recommendation for installing your product onto a stone veneer floor-to-ceiling fireplace?
    By eFireplaceStore on August 27, 2014

    Answer:
    Your suggestion to work around the issue is actually what I was going to suggest before I read further down into your inquiry. As long as the ledger board is securely anchored to the masonry behind, it can indeed serve as a spacer of sorts to allow attachment of the hanger board.

    By Lori from Los Lunas, NM on October 30, 2013
    You show a sample of the Natural Rustic Distressed, but I don't see a sample of the unfinished mantel. Do they look the same with the exception of a clear coat on them?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 30, 2013

    Answer:
    The unfinished product does indeed look very much the same as the finished model. The finished will only have undergone some additional sanding and the application of the urethane coating.

    By Quinn from Bryan, TX on May 21, 2017
    Any idea how much weight this can support if properly installed?
    By Will M. on May 23, 2017

    Answer:
    Per the manufacturer, the weight limit is 50 pounds.

    By Mary from San Diego, CA on January 26, 2015
    Is the back of this mantel solid or hollow?
    By Chris C. on January 27, 2015

    Answer:
    This mantel is a hollow boxed design to save on weight and make installation easier.
    By Michael from Mason, OH on January 27, 2015

    Answer:
    The back of the mantel is hollow for easy mounting. It is a very solid mantel.
    By Scott from Staunton, VA on January 27, 2015

    Answer:
    Hollow.
    By John from VT on January 27, 2015

    Answer:
    Hollow, it's a box made of 3/4 inch wood that looks like a beam. It looks good and it is easy to put up.

    By Nancy from TX on June 15, 2017
    What kind of wood is used to construct this product?
    By Owen on June 15, 2017

    Answer:
    That mantel is made from Pine.

    By Nancy from TX on August 17, 2017
    If I get this unfinished and want to stain it myself, will it still come distressed? Or, is that only an option when choosing the stained version?
    By Owen on August 17, 2017

    Answer:
    To get the distressed look, you would have to order it pre-stained.

    By Kevin from Tracy, CA on October 30, 2014
    How much does this mantel weigh? What type of wood is it made out of? What is the expected amount of time that it will take to install this shelf?
    By eFireplaceStore on October 31, 2014

    Answer:
    This item weighs 49 pounds and is manufactured from distressed pine. Installation on average will take under an hour.

    By Sue from CA on March 13, 2017
    Is the bottom of the shelf open or enclosed? By this, I mean is it wood on the top, bottom, front and sides, and hollow only in the middle, where it won't be seen?
    By Brennan W. on March 14, 2017

    Answer:
    The bottom of the mantel is indeed enclosed.
