I have a brick fireplace. I am looking for a Mantle shelf. The dimensions of the brick are 78 1/8" long and 8 3/4" deep. Do you offer anything in this size?
Unfortunately, we do not have any mantels that match these dimensions exactly. The best recommendation we could make would be one of our 72" mantel shelves. We do also have an option to custom build a mantel to match your r dimensions. But, this option can sometimes be cost prohibitive.
Are these mantel shelves easy to install on stone veneer fireplaces?
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.
What is the best way to attach a wood mantle to a brick wall?
Many wood mantels will come with a mounting board or cleat that must be affixed to the wall with masonry screws and anchors, allowing the mantel to be clipped to the board. If the mantel does not include this type of mount, a heavy duty construction adhesive can be used.
