Installation Ideas


Stone Magic mantels are designed to be installed either in new construction or as replacements for existing surrounds. They can be successfully placed over a variety of building materials, including dry wall, stone and brick. Each mantel comes with installation instructions for your mason.

Two frequently asked questions are: "What size do I need?" and "Can an arched surround fit if I have a rectangular firebox?". Any size close to the firebox size will work. Pick a larger version if you want to trim out, like framing and matting a picture. Arched surrounds work beautifully with rectangular boxes. On this page, we have shown several different installations to get your ideas started. As much as possible, the photos inside the catalog are also as installed. The choices are endless and allow you freedom to choose the mantel you prefer.
