Can I Install a Fireplace Mantel by Myself?
When your fireplace mantel is showing its age or no longer fits the style or decor in your home or office, you may want to consider finding a replacement. While there are many local providers of fireplace mantels, you might find that the perfect mantel is out of your area and needs to be shipped to you. This means that you may have to install the mantel by yourself. Even if you purchase a mantel locally, you might like to do your own home improvement tasks and be up for the challenge of installing a fireplace mantel by yourself.
Your new mantel should come with instructions. Before you begin, read through the instructions to make sure that everything is clear. Check to be sure everything is included in your package that is supposed to be there. If you need special items, such as mortar, spacers, reinforcements, or caulking, make a list and purchase these items before you begin.
Make sure to measure everything before you begin, making marks on the wall if necessary for accurate results. Follow the instructions to securely attach your new mantel.
If it seems too complicated or like too much work to install a mantel by yourself, you may want to consider hiring a professional to get the job done for you.
