Over Mantels

Is the space above your Mantel empty and unappealing?

Overmantels provide you with an opportunity to make your fireplace surround look more authentic. The addition of an overmantel can create a chimney chase that is used in classic architecture. We have many standard designs available for your budget. However, if you are looking for a design that is as unique as you, let us design and build a custom mantel unit for you. Our clients are able to select different columns, corbels, brackets, tile patterns, thicknesses, cladding, tiers, and crown moldings. We are the best and most reliable in the industry for custom overmantels. Please take a look at our Portfolio, which showcases many of our past works.
