HearthCoï¿½s pre-cast mantels are offered in many styles and a price range to suit any builder or homeowners needs for that pre-cast look. Choose between the smooth finish of regular pre-cast or the more expensive porous finish called TraverStone. The pre-cast mantels are constructed from the finest quality fiberglass reinforced gypsum. Since HearthCo designs their mantels using gypsum, they are non-combustible which gives you the ability to install in the non-combustible zone that wood mantels cannot offer. The pre-cast mantels are a paint grade mantel allowing the homeowner to paint the mantel with a latex or oil based prime coat and then top coat with any finish desired giving you many ways to match your own dï¿½cor.
