    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?
    1 Answers
    To get the distressed look, you would have to order it pre-stained.

    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?
    1 Answers
    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.

    from Lanham, MD asked:

    Is the mantle easy to hang even on a stone wall?
    1 Answers
    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.

    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?

    The bottom of the mantel is indeed enclosed.

    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?
    1 Answers
    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.

    Can this Pearl Mantels 496 Lexington wooden fireplace mantel be attached to a stone fireplace?
    3 Answers
    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.

    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.

    Diane
    from Alberta, CAN asked:
    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?
    1 Answers
    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.

    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?
    1 Answers
    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.
