Measuring Guidelines:
Most companies require mantel measurements to be 1/2" less for the inside opening width and opening height than the facing material. However, our inside width and height measurements are without the pre-cut scribe molding to fit the inside of the mantel. Once this is applied to the inside of the mantel, it overlaps the facing material for a finished look.

Please follow the measuring guidelines below to ensure that the mantel you are ordering will fit your application.
