    How does this product attach to the wall? Also, my measurement is 50 and 1/2 inches.
    1 Answers
    This attaches to the wall via a backer board where the mantel hangs. If you prefer to have some brick on either side, you will want to choose the 48" size.

    from Arvada, Colorado asked:
    November 28, 2016
    What is the height of the corbel? Is the 15" height referred to on the "dimension" sheet from the top of the mantel to the bottom of the corbel for the 72" mantel? Or is the that height of the corbel, or the height of the mantel without the corbel? If the top of the mantel is 10" deep, how deep (what is the measurement from front to back) is the bottom of the mantel? Is this mantel, corbels and arch all designed to fit flat against the wall? How would you fit it over brick fireplace face that comes out from the wall 3.25"?

    from Arvada, Colorado asked:
    November 14, 2016
    I recently purchased this 60" Pearl Mantel 495 Auburn Fireplace Mantel Shelf. I had to return it because it did not fit on top of my fireplace correctly. I don't know if the 72" model would be too long for my fireplace either -- the length of the bottom of the mantel is not shown in the dimensions. The bottom of the mantel for my fireplace before the arch and corbels that would rest on the top of the brick would need to be 60". Is it possible to get this same Pearl Mantel 495 Auburn Mantel Shelf at the size I need to fit my fireplace?

    from Los Angeles, CA asked:
    July 14, 2016
    Does this come with or without the arch?
    1 Answers
    The mantel ships with the arch included, but it is not required to be installed. Additionally, the corbels shown also do not have to be used, but they are included with the mantel as well.

    Is the unfinished mantel distressed, or only the cherry finished? Does it come as separate sections (shelf, corbels, arch), or is it all one piece?
    1 Answers
    The unfinished mantel is not distressed, and the only other option will be cherry distressed. The mantel will arrive with the shelf, corbels, and arch as separate pieces, as installing the corbels and arch is not required.

    The face of my fireplace marble surround is exactly 5 feet wide. What size of this Pearl Mantels 495 Auburn fireplace mantel shelf should I order? I want it to look exactly like the photo on your web site.

    With your marble being 60" in width, the 72" model would give you the appearance of the imagery as shown on our website with the mantel shelf itself hanging from the marble on both the left and right hand sides.

    from San Antonio, TX asked:
    October 28, 2015
    I am interested in the 48 inch length of this Pearl Mantels 495 Auburn fireplace mantel shelf. How much weight can the mounting system of this hold? I would like to place a large flat screen TV on it and it will fastened into the brick and mortar of my fireplace.
    4 Answers
    After checking with the manufacturer, they have advised that the weight limit of the mantel will greatly depend upon the method in which the wall cleat is attached to the brick and mortar. I would suggest checking the weight limit of the hardware to be used in securing the wall cleat.
    Chris C.
    on October 29, 2015
    I just purchased the 60" version and haven't mounted it yet, but based on the mounting design it should have no problem supporting a flat screen TV as long as you use a good quality masonry anchor in your "brick and mortar". I like the Simpson Strong-Tie lead expansion anchors with a lag screw myself. The strength will have more to do with the quality and condition of the brick and mortar. Use the recommended size masonry drill bit and lag screws for the size anchor that you choose.

    from MA
    My husband was skeptical of the mounting system at first, but quickly realized how good it worked. I'm not sure how much your tv weighs but I love this mantel!
    on October 29, 2015
    from MI
    There is a very strong, sturdy cleat that is used to mount the mantel. Extra hardware could be added to the cleat if desired, but that probably wouldn't be necessary. I think the mantel can easily hold a tv - when following recommended installation.

    I am interested in the Cherry Distressed finish (instead of finishing it myself). How would you classify the Cherry Distressed finish - is it gloss, semi-gloss, satin, flat, etc.?? Also is it a lacquer or a urethane or something else?? Thank you, John How would you classify the Cherry Distressed finish on this mantel shelf? Would you say that it is glossy, semi-glossy, satin, flat, etc? Also, is it a lacquer, a urethane, or something else?
    1 Answers
    Per the manufacturer, the finish is a satin urethane application. The surface of the shelf is thoroughly prepared and a 12 step process ensures that the shelf is thoroughly covered and the finish hardened properly.

    Our brick fireplace goes to the ceiling. We already have two holes drilled in the fireplace. The holes are 50" apart. Will we have a problem mounting this mantel?
    1 Answers
    You will need to drill additional holes in order for this mantel to be installed. The wall board that is used to mount the mantel is approximately 48 inches in length. As such, the existing holes cannot be used. However, it is fairly easy to drill new holes in the mortar, using a masonry bit. The mantel shelf would then cover the existing holes when it is installed.

    Our corner fireplace is floor-to-ceiling in red brick (painted white, 60"W). What anchors would you recommend to hold this with the wall cleat?
    1 Answers
    Ideally, you would use plastic masonry anchors to attach this cleat to the wall. Due to the size and weight of the item, ribbed anchors are recommended. It is also recommended to install the anchors into the mortar, rather than the brick, as drilling into the brick can be difficult even with a good quality masonry bit. Larger anchors, such as a #8 size, would be recommended. Follow the manufacturer recommendations closely for the number of anchors needed for the job.

    Does the back side of the shelf have to be scribed & cut to match the uneven stone wall?
    1 Answers
    This particular shelf will come with a flat, wooden wall cleat that must be attached to the wall, prior to mounting the shelf. In situations where you have an uneven wall surface, you will need to either flatten the wall or alter the mantel and attach it using alternate means.

    What is the best way to attach to cultured stone wall? This is new construction, and stone has not yet been installed.
    1 Answers
    These mantels are attached to the wall via a wall cleat. The wall cleat is screwed to the wall and the mantel then hangs from it. Since your wall is not yet finished, you have the opportunity to mount the wall cleat to the unfinished wall. Thereby, avoiding the need to drill into the cultured stone.

    I have a gas fireplace, and it has a shelf that's formed into the wall. Do you make shelves that cover the existing shelf, hollow in back?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, all of the shelves that we carry are designed to be mounted directly on the wall and do not have the ability to cover an existing mantel or surround. Any type of surround such as this would need to be "boxed" construction and purpose built for your application. I highly recommend consulting a local contractor or cabinet maker for this type of need.

    This shelf has an approximate weight of 55 lbs. It is attached to the wall via a wall cleat. The wall cleat is attached to the wall with your choice of wall anchors. The shelf is then hung on the wall cleat.

    I really like this mantel, my problem is that my fireplace is off center in the brick on my wall, but I need the mantel to match the width of the brick to look good. So, is it possible to have the bottom part of this mantel removed like in the attached picture? Is that even an option? If so, what would the height of the mantel be?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, that is not an option, as these mantels are only made as shown and there is no option for customization.

    This Product is outstanding. Very easy to put together and install just don't forget to use a level and an extra set of hands to set it onto the ledger. The mounting screws for the ledger are not included so you will need 3-4 two and a half to three inch screws. Once you know exactly the height that you will mount the mantle and the center just take a brad to locate the wall studs and secure the ledger to the studs and hang the mantle just as you would a picture and you're done...easy as pie. Just in time for Santa to fill those Christmas Stockings. The finished shelf looks amazing.

    Pearl Mantel
    After receiving the Pearl Fireplace Mantel we stained it and for some reason the corbels stained darker than the mantel shelf itself. We contacted the eFireplace Store and explained the situation. After sending them a picture of the mantel shelf and the corbels they immediately sent us an email and expressed their apology for the problem. And they also sent us another mantel shelf with the corbels to replace the other ones at no additional charge. The Fireplace Mantel Shelf with the Corbels have turned out beautiful. We have had so many compliments on it. Without a doubt I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a Fireplace Mantel. First of all they stand behind their product and it is of upmost quality. We are beyond pleased with ours and are proud to say, "We got it at eFireplace".

    Complete Kit
    I have had a very satisfactory experience with this mantel. I purchased the 62-inch mantel with a cherry finish and it sets off my stone fireplace perfectly. The design is exceptionally beautiful. Everything was complete in the box – instructions, backer board, and screws – and arrived in just four days. Once in place it is quite secure. I can’t think of a thing to say to discourage anyone from purchasing this mantel. It is even easy to keep clean!
    By Ariana Menard from Tennessee on August 14, 2013
    Poor Quality
    I bought this mantel unfinished. And though it is a fine-looking mantel I would not recommend buying it unfinished. I was disappointed that you could not hide the glue spots. It was nearly impossible to get the stain to coat evenly and I had to fix the stain repeatedly.

    Worth Even Some Extra Work
    My spouse and I both picked out this mantel separately of one another. The distressed cherry finish has a very nice look. Since there is some existing tile in the area where the shelf is installed, we had to insert a foundation board behind the shelf and will have to add some molding to finish the look. The finished appearance though is worth the extra work.

    Speedy Shipping
    Overall, this mantel is great. I noticed a few areas of glue residue that a little sanding took care of. The speedy ordering and shipping process was great since I was working with a tight deadline. I applied the finish to the shelf, and it should be installed later today. I will recommend your website to my contractor as a source for high quality, inexpensive mantels that can be obtained quickly.

    Not As Pictured
    Although the Auburn Arched mantel does not look the way I thought it would from the pictures on the website, it really is well worth the price. It was easy to install the corbels and arch with the shelf. If you don’t want the look of the arch, you can just use the shelf with the corbels. Or the shelf can be installed without the corbels, the choice is yours. The corbels were the disappointment. They just were not as substantial or attractive as what was pictured. The overall finish on the mantel is very lovely. Pearl Mantels makes a fine piece that I would never be able to make at home for the same price. Overall, I still would highly recommend this piece as an enhancement to your fireplace.

    This mantel proved to be the perfect way to renovate our brick fireplace and rejuvenate the whole room! The cherry finish that we chose is a beautiful finish and the carving lends an air of sophistication. If you compare prices, you will know that you won’t find anything this great at this price. Even a do-it-yourselfer couldn’t beat it. But any handy person will be able to install the sturdy mounting brace and solid mantel with the easy instructions. The mantel is a considerable size with a wide shelf area to display items. It all came packaged well and in less than a week.

    Poorly Constructed
    I have received two of these now, and neither one has been a good quality mantel. The pictures looked like what we wanted and even when we took it out of the box it looked good. The first one was filled with wood putty where there was damage. It was unfinished wood and I didn’t think the stain would be consistent. After sending pictures to the company we were able to return it. The second one looked fine when it arrived, but when we tried to install it, the mantel sloped quite a bit from front to back. In order to have the mantel be level the top edge would have to come out an inch. It was really of poor construction. We really wanted this for a new home construction and wanted everything to be just right. Unfortunately this was not what I had hoped for.

    Seeing this mantel hanging on the stone veneer of my fireplace makes me quite happy. The craftsmanship of the shelf is exceptional. Because of the stone's thickness, I had to purchase some additional hardware to make sure that the shelf was solidly supported, but that was only a minor issue.

    Would Buy Another
    I already have plans to buy another one of these mantels when I build another house! I like it that much! Friends have admired the work I did staining and installing the unfinished mantel. The chestnut stain I chose was easy to apply to a uniform finish. I did have some problems with the parts that are glued together to make the corbels. The stain looks checkered to me, but most have liked that look. The instructions give a minimum height for the mantel and that is where we mounted ours. If I were to do it again, I would have placed it higher to give more room above the fireplace door. The mantel gets pretty hot after a bit and I think mounting it higher would have been a better idea. This is not an expensive mantel, but it is worth much more than the price I paid.

    Soooo Beautiful !!
    Did my homework before purchasing this mantel. Elite Deals had the best deal & fast turnaround. The reviews of this mantel on other sites was great. Spoke with the owner of Pearl Mantels, Elizabeth, and she explained indepth the process of construction & the 17 step finishing process. She explained that this mantel should be considered a "piece of furniture" because of it's size, quality and finish. Well, she convinced me to purchase it already stained with the distressed cherry finish. When it arrived, we were hesitant to open the box and pull it out. Our expectations were so high. Well, when we pulled it out our jaws dropped !! It was sooo gorgeous. It was better than we anticipated or hoped for. It is very heavy, very high quality construction, beautiful medium to dark cherry tones with a slight distressed look. We are very pleased with the overall purchase experience. I very highly recommend this product. If you have any doubts, call Elizabeth at Pearl Mantels and I'm sure she will convince you how you are going to soooo LOVE THIS!!!
