Custom Fireplace Mantels

Custom Fireplace Mantels and Surrounds

Well summer is here and it looks like some warm weather is here to stay.  It's been hot and busy the past months, working on yet...more custom cabinet, vanity and kitchen projects...just proving the adage...there's no rest for the wicked and no cooling down when your busy moving.

In this months installment, we talking more about custom fireplace mantles and surrounds.  The above video illustrated our install in the recent Martinez project (RW Thompson)  that we have spotlighted these recent months. 

As noted, we've taken careful measurements and pre assembled the mantle at the shop to facilitate a perfect slide-in once we were at the job.   We can do the same for you. 

A Brief History of the Mantel

Fireplace mantel or mantelpiece, also known as a chimneypiece, originated in medieval times as a hood that projected over a grate to catch the smoke. The term has evolved to include the decorative framework around the fireplace, and can include elaborate designs extending to the ceiling. Mantelpiece is now the general term for the jambs, mantel shelf, and external accessories of a fireplace. For many centuries, the chimneypiece was the most ornamental and most artistic feature of a room, but as fireplaces have become smaller, and modern methods of heating have been introduced, its artistic as well as its practical significance has lessened.
