Stonecraft Mantels has been located in Arlington, Texas for the last 14 years. We install our fireplace surrounds all over the Metroplex, with custom home builders, production home builders and some apartment builders. Our installation crews have many years experience, with installations in homes being remodeled as well as new construction.
With over 30 years experience in residential construction, we determined that there was a need for some new and innovative ideas for fireplace surrounds. We were fortunate enough to come upon a non-combustible product that can be used in a number of ways.
This innovative product eases many restrictions associated with wood mantels, and provides the appearance of limestone or travertine. Not only is the product strong and durable, but, unlike typical cement cast stone, it is totally repairable and much more affordable, and a product you can appreciate for years to come, with practically no maintenance.
If the mantel you like does not fit your specifications, call us. As you can see from our Custom Mantel Section, some customizing of design can often be made to accommodate your needs.
Installation is available in the Dallas and Ft. Worth area only, at this time. However, we are making every effort to make installation available in many more areas in the near future. So call us and see if we can install a mantel for you in the near future.
