I ordered the unpainted Virginia mantel. I was notified, with in two weeks of placing the order that the mantel was built . It arrived within five working days. The quality and craftsmanship are outstanding. I installed it, with some modifications, painted it and am now enjoying it. Everyone that has seen it likes it and thinks it is a clever idea. I had several questions, prior to ordering, and called rather than emailing. Eric was exceptionally polite each time he returned my calls. I highly recommend Hidden Wire Mantel. This is the way all businesses should conduct themselves.

We were looking for a mantel for our solid brick floor to ceiling chimney as we wanted to mount our 55 inch TV above it and to hide the wiring behind without doing extensive damage to the fireplace. We also did not have time for my husband to build one himself which is what he would normally have done. This mantel fit in our budget, it arrived in a timely manner, and the workmanship and quality of the piece was far above what I was expecting. We stained ourselves to save money. We are so happy with the final results! Quality product from a quality company that I would recommend to anyone!

I was very pleased with the quality and functionality of the Carolina mantel. I stained and finished myself to match the other woodwork. I had a very minor problem mounting it which was resolved with some sanding to mounting cleat to allow a smooth mounting. Special note is to plan your wiring and outlet installation before installing the mounting cleat or you may have to make adjustments. It is best to install the outlet at the end of the cleat and make sure it has clearance for the mantel. This means the outlet me be installed between wall studs. An old work box with clips is needed to secure the box to the wall.
Bottomline: My wife loves it and really likes the neon light installed above the mantel. Go Bucks!

As the owner and installation specialist of Watch Ohio, a flat panel tv, home theater, and satellite design/installation company, I was aggressively searching for a more efficient way of doing my over the fireplace installs.
I was fortunate to come across Hidden Wire Mantels, and reached out to the owner, Eric, to discuss my needs. He was very informative and personable, a quality somewhat hard to find these days in business owners.
A client of mine was interested in a custom mantel, and Eric went over all details to ensure a perfect fit and ultimately a very happy client. Turn around from the day I got him the dimensions to when the mantel was finished was super fast, but most importantly, the detail and quality of the mantel was superb. The mantel and fitment was beyond the customers expectations.
I will indeed use Hidden Wire Mantels for future projects, and I am anxious to work with Eric again!

After searching for a good way to mount my t.v above my fireplace. I came across Eric's hiddenwiremantels. This is a great idea and the mantel is top notch quality. I added the oak option and could not be happier with the way it turned out.
Eric was great to work with I would highly recommend buying a mantel from hiddenwiremantels.com. Awesome product and customer service.

Eric was great to work with every step of the way. He and his team were able to design my custom oak mantel based on a few ideas I had and measurements that I provided.
Considering that I was some 600 miles away, the communication was great whether it was an email or phone call. I would highly recommend hiddenwiremantels.com!
Great Quality and great to work with...

The mantel shelf is exactly what I was looking for to go over my new gas fireplace. The folks at Hidden Wire were very helpful before and after I placed my order. They answered all the questions I asked within 24 hrs and even called to make sure they had all the right details for my order. My mantel arrived when they said it would and it's perfect.
