A Home without a fireplace is a home without a soul. - Edith Wharton
Photos and comments from satisfied MantelCraft customers!
"We ordered the Victoria, and asked for some small customizing: putting on some appliques we ordered from Heartwood Carving, and an unusual paint color.
The mantle that arrived, well packaged and in perfect shape, far exceeded our expectations. A lot more detail and craftmanship than shown in the photos, a perfect paint job (no brush strokes showing), exact size we ordered, and with the modifications we had requested, perfectly executed.
The Customer Service person, Michael Richards, was responsive and knowledgeable. And he was able to tell us exactly what modifications could be made. I have no reservations recommending MantelCraft. I'd buy from them again!"

I wanted to touch base with you. We are complete with our house remodel and I thought that I would forward some pictures showing your mantel and what it looked like as a completed project in our home. We are beginning to have family and friends back over (after a long remodel project) and all are very complimentary of your product. Thank you for your assistance - we are very pleased with the MantelCraft addition.
Best wishes for a Blessed Holiday Season and upcoming New Year !!

Michael, Gregg and I really appreciate your helpfullness, cheerfulness and willingness to make our mantel purchase, from many miles away, the best possible experience. We were confident in our purchase from MantelCraft and would not hesitate to buy again. We've given the MantelCraft name to our friends and our designer Alicia M.

Though it’s been a month since completion at the construction site, I thought I’d send along this picture of our Leesburg mantel that reflects my complete satisfaction. Many comfortable evenings in front of this scene - in a cold climate, Maine - tell the tale. You have what I think of as a unique business model, and if not for Google, I’d never have known about what you have to offer. Thanks, and enjoy the photo!

A very long time ago, you were kind enough to knock off a little bit of the price on a mantel if I sent you before and after pics of my fireplace. Are you still there? (YES!) It was quite the transformation. Thank you for your help with our new mantel. Best wishes!

Thanks to Brett Helsham for using our Adelaide #128 in the Carrara color for one of projects in NYC.
I'm attaching before, during, and after pics of the Savannah mantel.
Thought you might be interested to see how upgrading the mantel while changing nothing else, improves the appearance of the fireplace.
Overall, we are very pleased with the result.

Michael, thanks for all your help on this project it came out better than I expected.

Hello Michael. Up and done and I am SOOO PLEASED. This was something my late husband and I had wanted to add for years but never really took the time to shop for. Just wish he was here to enjoy it too. My handyman who installed it was impressed with the piece and took down your website information. He has a poured concrete chimney in his house….said a crane had to lift it in when house was built. And though he is a professional handyman never got around to doing a mantel for himself. The variety you offer and the French cleat strip made an impression with him. And, it took him less time to hang the mantel than it did for him to install a laminate to carpet transition strip in a doorway! So yes, well satisfied on this end.
Thank you, Judith W., August, 2017

Dear Mantle Craft,
As you can see from the before and after pictures, the transformation is amazing. I was happy to say goodbye to our simple molding surround and "Clemson paw print" in the upper left tile.
We are very pleased with the look and quality of your work and will recommend you to anyone looking to upgrade a fireplace.

“Michael, I just wanted to confirm I received my mantel from MantelCraft and it fit just right, was high quality and looks GREAT. Exactly the transformation I was hoping for. I really love the product and the great visual improvement it made to our previously boring, out of proportion fireplace and mantel” –
