One of the most challenging parts of replacing a fireplace mantle is getting a new one installed, that is perfectly sized, and can fit the opening and be installed as well as the original. This can be tough to do when an area is already drywalled on bricked around. Enter the box beam. Box beams make the perfect mantle – they can be made any size, easier to install than a traditional mantle, and they last longer. In addition to traditional solid core custom wood mantles, Woodland produces mantles made from lightweight box beams, easy to ship, easy to install, and they look great.
