Everything About Fireplace Designs

countrystonehomeThe fireplace is the focal point of your family, living or entertainment room. Why live another minute with an outdated and unattractive fireplace when an economical and straightforward solution is just a phone call away?

We get asked a lot of questions every single day. But most questions revolve around the same topics. So here’s some of the most frequently asked questions and topics.

Cost for a fireplace mantel

On average, a fireplace mantel costs between $2,000 and $3,500. This cost includes the procurement of quality materials and labor. However, larger more complicated jobs might be more expensive. Cheaper “do it yourself” mantels will cost less but in reality you must be an expert craftsman to put it together correctly. One slip up in measurements or with the bonding procedure and you’ll have a wasted mantel. It is best to leave it up to the professionals.
