TRANSFORM YOUR SPACE WITH OUR CAST STONE MANTELS

 

At Old World Stoneworks, crafting beautiful cast stone fireplace mantels has been our passion for decades. We cherish the process and feel that every cast stone fireplace surround has a story to tell. Charm and elegance combined with the feeling of old-world sentimentality by a cast stone fireplace mantel will help create lasting family memories. No matter the style you’re after, we’re sure to have the perfect cast stone fireplace surround design for your home.

At Old World Stoneworks, we make our beautiful cast stone fireplace mantel surrounds from manmade stone modeled after Indiana limestone. Also known as Bedford limestone, this type of natural stone is the highest quality quarried limestone in America.

Sometimes, it’s very hard to tell cast stone from real limestone. Case in point: The Egyptian pyramids. For centuries, everybody assumed they were built with blocks of solid limestone. But scientists have recently begun to think the pyramids were built with an early form of concrete composed of limestone, lime, clay and water. Scientists analyzing the pyramids found that they had a higher water content and other traits more consistent with cast stone than naturally occurring stone. At Old World Stoneworks, we say, if cast stone was good enough for the ancient Egyptians – whose work has lasted 4,500 years – it’s good enough for our cast stone fireplaces.

Many thanks for the months of work and planning you helped to put into our new fireplace purchase. I appreciate your patience and attention to detail as well as your genuine concern in helping us choose the right style for our new home. We are so very happy! The Conrad was the perfect size and fit in our den!

Cast Stone Fireplace Surround FAQs

Hanging a mantel shelf is straightforward, and our cast stone mantels are designed for easy installation. Start by marking the desired height on your wall, ensuring it’s level. Attach the provided mounting brackets or ledger board to the wall studs. Once secured, the mantel shelf can be placed over and fixed onto these brackets. Refer to our detailed installation guide or consult a professional for the best results.

Installing our cast stone fireplace mantel is a seamless experience. Begin by ensuring a sturdy and level base for the legs. Secure the legs first, then position the header or shelf on top, ensuring it aligns perfectly with the legs. Use the provided fasteners or adhesive to ensure a stable fit. For an impeccable finish, follow our step-by-step instructions or opt for professional installation.

Maintaining the pristine look of your cast-stone fireplace mantel is simple. Use a soft cloth or brush to dust off any debris. Mix a mild detergent with water, gently scrub the surface, and wipe it down for a deeper clean. Avoid using harsh chemicals which might tarnish the stone’s natural beauty. Regular cleaning will ensure your mantel remains the centerpiece of your room for years.

Measuring your fireplace mantel is crucial for that perfect fit. Begin by measuring the width of the firebox, then determine the desired height for the mantel shelf from the base. Next, measure the height and width of your selected mantel legs. Remember to account for any additional spacing or overhangs. Our guides and consultants are always available to assist with precise measurements.

Fireplaces have mantels not only for their aesthetic appeal but also for their functionality. A mantel acts as a shield, diverting heat away from the wall and adding an element of safety. Our cast stone mantels elevate this functionality by blending form and function, transforming an ordinary fireplace into an elegant focal point of any room.

A fireplace mantel comprises several distinct parts, each adding to its charm. The main horizontal shelf, often called the “mantel shelf” or “header,” sits atop two vertical supports named “legs” or “pilasters.” Some mantels may also have an “overmantel,” an ornamental piece above the shelf, and a “surround,” framing the firebox. 

At Old World Stoneworks, we use a vibratory tamping method and make our cast stone by mixing a dry mixture of finely grated aggregates and silica sand with a bonding and hardening agent. In a mulling machine, we add this mixture to water.

No. Precast concrete is simply colored concrete and is usually associated with a wet poured method that helps to create the clean edges and dense stone. It’s a construction product created by casting concrete in a mold and curing it in a controlled environment, rather than pouring it at the construction site.

Cast stone is an imitation stone made of Portland cement, chemical admixtures and aggregates such as quartz, limestone, sand or granite.

Cast stone is easier to create and mold versus natural stone needs to be quarried and cut. Cast stone can be colored depending on design demands and replicated throughout a building.
