Fireplace opening size including surrounding face material. We
recommend that you measure the height of the fireplace face material and
subtract ½”. We recommend that you measure the width of the fireplace face
material and subtract 1”. This will allow the mantle surround to overlay
the face material by ½” on each of the three (3) sides.
Depth of tile or brick on back wall. We recommend that you take the
actual depth of the face material and add ¼” to allow for custom fitting
if necessary. Molding will be provided to cover any unevenness of the face

your order form, we are to use the standard size listed.
- Crown Molding on the upper panels will be our
standard V-30 (3-1/4” wide). The molding will be shipped loose and must
be applied to the upper panel at the job site.
- Please note the minimum sizes printed on the order
forms for some of the mantle components. Be certain you have allowed for
these minimums on your mantle layout.
- Standard sizes have been listed on the order
forms. If you choose to vary from the standard sizes, please be aware
that this will affect the dimensions for other areas as well. For
example: When the depth of the mantle is reduced, the depth of the two
side legs will also be reduced.
- Double-check the wall sizes to the left and the
right of the mantle to ensure there is enough space available to accept
the mantles and surrounds.

like your order un-finished or pre-finished.
