Do you have mantels that have an overall height of 48" and a total base width of 70 inches? I have an existing fireplace with brick surround and hearth of 12" in height.
Our Agee Woodworks semi-custom mantels are indeed available with an overall width of 70" and a total height of slightly below or slightly above 48 inches.

Our fireplace was constructed as wood burning but converted to gas logs. It is in a full brick wall. How do you attach the surround to the brick wall? Would the size just depend on our personal preference?
You would indeed attach the mantel to the brick. The mantel dimensions will likely depend on the clearance requirements set by the manufacturer of your log set.

What is the proper full fireplace mantel for my vent-less gas fireplace. My box measures 44.75" wide x 48" high? I want to have travertine from the inside edge of the firebox to the wood. My firebox opening is 42" wide x 28" tall and 7" off the floor, but there will be no raised hearth.
Please confirm if the fireplace is a manufactured model with an integral burner assembly and log set or if this is a log set that was installed into a masonry fireplace opening. Please confirm the manufacturer name and model number of either when you can.

Is there a mantle that accommodates a 47.25 inch tall firebox? I am looking at the WRT3042.
Unfortunately, we do not carry a full mantel that would accommodate the 9" minimum height between the top of the louver and the the start of the upper portion of the mantel required for the WRT3042. We would suggest taking a look at one of our mantel shelves that can be placed at the proper clearance requirement.

Do you have any mantels that are 56 to 57 inches in height?

How do I measure my fireplace to see what size to buy? My opening is surrounded by quite a lot of brickwork. It has a raised hearth as well.
Most of the requirements for mantel sizing come down to personal preference, although there are some minimum overhead requirements that need to be met to ensure the mantel does not overheat. If you would like to provide the width and height of the fireplace opening, as well as the width and height of the surrounding brick veneer, I will be happy to make some suggestions.

My fireplace is 60 inches wide, tile to tile, and 47.5 inches tall. I like the #160 Vance, but it does not seem to fit. Any ideas or do you have another one that will fit? My photo is enclosed.
Unfortunately, the 56 inch width is the largest size we carry in a premanufactured mantel. It is possible to overlay the mantel on top of the tile, but tile of the same depth would need to be used behind the mantel legs, in order to make sure it does not stand out from the wall. The only other options would be to remove the tile to allow for the narrower mantel or to have a custom mantel made, based on the design of the Vance.

How do I measure to find the perfect surround?
The overall width and facing of your fireplace should first be measured, then you will need to verify if there is a minimum required distance to an overhead mantel shelf or adjacent mantel legs. Once those clearances are established, a surround that meets or exceeds those clearances can be selected. The actual amount of space between the fireplace and the surround is largely personal preference. Some customers prefer a surround that is very close fitting, while others prefer more space for a tile, stone, or marble veneer.
