Mantels and Surrounds
Mendota Mantels
Fires of Tradition
Now that you've spent so much time and energy picking out the perfect fireplace, lets take just a bit more time and find a mantel that will dress it up. Mantels can be as simple as a board and some brackets to hold it up or a surround mantel with legs and possibly an overmantel above complete with bookshelves on the sides. Let us help you match a mantel with your fireplace and your home.

We specialize in reclaimed wood mantels made from recycled or reclaimed old barn beams, salvaged logs, hand-hewn wood, and lumber or timbers of white pine, douglas fir, and various hardwoods.
All of our mantels, whether reclaimed wood mantel shelves, log mantels, or mantel surrounds, present especially well when accompanied with fireplace stone or cultured stone in both contemporary and traditional settings. 
Our custom wood fireplace mantels are proudly hand made in Minnesota by independent artisans. Mendota Mantels each carry a written provenance.
We like to think of ourselves as the home of the well dressed flame. Through our enthusiastic use of stone, wood and iron, we have created a range of products that compliment the respected line of Valor gas fires. Valor has an exceptional reputation in the fireplace industry for their flame beauty and uncompromising heat efficiency. Our range of mantels, hearths and backpanels beautifully provide options that enhance and dress these fine flames. We have given careful consideration to material, style, scale and quality- the result being some of the most unique and classic fireplace designs that are available on the market.
