EASILY INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME WITH A FIREPLACE MANTEL
Are you building a new home or updating your current residence? Then consider adding a cast stone mantel to your space to increase your home's resale value. According to a recent REALTOR® survey, nearly two-thirds of all home buyers had a fireplace on their wish list. Further, The National Center for Real Estate Research found that fireplaces can increase the average home value by 6-12%. Modern electric fireplaces can be installed in 15 minutes and when surrounded by our handcrafted artisan stone, are unmatched show stoppers. Above the persuasive resell benefits, there are several additional advantages of stone fireplace mantels including durability, low maintenance, low cost, and cast stone's properties as a non-combustible material, making them a safer option than traditional wood or timber.
MantelsDirect.com offers a collection of cast stone mantels that are easy to install because they are lighter in weight than traditional solid stone mantels. Classic Stone Mantels are offered in over 31 styles and a variety of color options in standard, out-of-the-box sizes or custom fit to your home. Whether you choose a natural finish like limestone or a polished finish that is hand-rubbed to perfection, the look and feel is elegant and sophisticated.
We provide step-by-step instructions for installing the mantel yourself, but our expert customer care is on hand to offer extra assistance and make sure everything goes smoothly. All you need on hand is some patience, friends to help you carry the heavy pieces, a power drill, circular saw with diamond masonry blade, tape measure, 3" wood screws, and a caulk gun.
