What are Precast Mantels?

When choosing from the many fireplace mantels in Orange County, you can have a mantel made from wood, natural stone, and several other options. Cast stone mantels are one option that are durable, lightweight, and affordable. Precast mantels are created ahead of time at the provider, and then delivered to your home to be easily installed.

Precast mantels are designed from a mold. This mold has the specific design features and details that you see in completed fireplace mantels. Contrary to what you might think, not all precast mantels look the same. While you can choose one that is already completed, you may decide to have the provider design a specific mold to provide you with the results you want.

A stone mixture is used in the mold, such as Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum. This material is durable, lightweight, and non-combustible for safety when the fireplace is being used. Material such as Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum makes it easy to personalize your fireplace mantel. One of the great traits of this type of material is that it is versatile for a variety of details, such as texture, design, or even variations in coloring.
