With all our custom built fireplace mantel and surrounds, we hand pick all the lumber we use. Frequently, we go through ten boards to get one good one. We check for the looks of the board, how straight it is, and look for the best possible color match. We use solid lumber in our construction. No plywood is used in the mantel or the surround.

In order for lumber to remain straight and not bow or warp, it should be dried to a specific percentage of humidity for each individual state across the country. We have found that even drying to correct moisture levels still does not prevent all lumber from warping.

We pick your lumber and begin to assemble your mantel within 2 days to prevent chances of warping. We cannot guarantee that all lumber will remain stable, but we go to all lengths possible to avoid warping.

As soon as we have your mantel and/or surround built, it is immediately stained and finished inside and out, again, to prevent warping.

We mount your mantel in your home with very little mess, and we clean up when we are done, leaving you just the enjoyment of your new mantel.

We have a line of standard mantels and surrounds to choose from, or we will custom design for you. We will also work with you to fit the space allowed in your house.

Whether you would like a mantel only, or a mantel and surround (legs & crosspiece), we will build to your needs. You may choose from a variety of standard models that we have displayed, or we will custom build to your specs. We have also taken basic models and made alterations, such as carvings, end blocks, bookcases on top and at the sides, mirrors above, or an idea that you come up with. We take the time to sit with you and design, let you design, or we can design any alterations or custom work, and submit it for your approval. We take pride in our work, and pass the craftsmanship on to you to put in your home.

We believe that you will find the work of Chadima Furniture & Restoration of the highest quality.


I prefer PayPal, the #1 payment service in online auctions!
