    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    I need a mantel shelf that wraps around a corner fireplace. Do you have anything like that?
    1 Answer
    We do not have any stocked mantel shelves capable of being installed in this manner. With a dimension sketch, one of our manufactures may be able to build a suitable mantel.

    We have a vent-free gas fire place with a TV mounted above it. The current mantle is 8" wide; the heat rolls up and the TV is hot to touch within 10 minutes. The current size of the mantle is 8" deep, 12" high, and 87" long. I need multiple recommendations to solve the heat issue.
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, this is a common issue and one of the primary reasons why it is best to recess the television into an alcove if it is mounted above the fireplace. If that is simply not an option, using a deeper mantel shelf or adding an accessory fan to the fireplace are your other options.

    Are these mantel shelves easy to install on stone veneer fireplaces?
    1 Answer
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    What kind of screws or anchors do I need in order to mount the mantel shelf into a stone wall? What is better, screws or anchors? Also, what size screws and anchors would you recommended? Is it OK to drill through the stone if I'm unable to drill into the mortar because the wall is uneven?

    The mantle shelves will include the wall cleat and basic hardware to mount them. However, masonry anchors will need to be purchased if the shelf is being mounted to a brick or stone facing.
