Concrete Fireplace Surrounds and Mantels
We cast our standard models keeping the small details in mind, ensuring they will add beauty to your space. All of our concrete mantel pieces are cast hollow inside to reduce weight, making the installation process easier and for no extra reinforcement requirements for the wall or floor. What is a mantel? The mantel by itself is a decorative concrete frame around the insert. Depending on the mantel design you choose your room acquires individual character and the experience of sitting by the fire is so much more enjoyable when the overall aesthetic sings to you.
Why is concrete a good material for fireplace surround?
- concrete is a non-combustible material, and is proven to stand high temperatures, which makes it a perfect option for fireplace surrounds (especially for gas and wood-burning inserts);
- flexible in design. At the initial stage of casting, we can use different moulds to create unique designs for the mantel. Except for existing standard models, we also give freedom to our customers to develop their own style;
- Easy maintenance! DreamCast concrete is sealed at time of shipping, to repeal grease (fingerprints) and other grime. Although the material is integrally colored you can choose to paint your mantel years down the road if you want to do a renovation for a new look!
