During the chilly fall and winter months, the comforting warm glow from an open fire provides a perfect place to curl up and relax with a good book or get together with family and friends for hot chocolate, games, and conversation. A cozy hearth with a flickering flame is also an ideal way to welcome guests to your hotel, upscale restaurant, or winter resort. During the summer months, when it seems like snow is still an eternity away, fireplaces are an attention-grabbing focal point in living rooms, hotel lobbies, and guest suites.

Because all of the materials we use are non-combustible, you can rest assured that sparks and flare-ups will never set your architectural fireplace surround on fire.

No matter where you are planning to install your Stromberg architectural mantel surround, we can help you find a design and material that will work for you. And remember, we also produce custom fireplace mantels if none of our stock designs catches your eye.Cast Stone Mantels
As a natural material, and one of the first architectural materials ever used, cut stone has a timeless and universal appeal that is somewhat difficult to explain. In rooms and outdoor areas alike, stone mantels evoke images and feelings associated with times gone by, when the hearth was a favorite gathering place for friends and family. Stromberg has combined the classic beauty of real stone with modern innovations to produce unforgettable cast stone mantels that are durable, versatile, and virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. These are some of the major advantages of cast stone mantels by Stromberg: Cast Stone Mantels are Versatile:
When you choose to have a mantelpiece constructed out of quarried stone, you can only choose from the materials the company currently has in stock. At Stromberg, we've developed a way to replicate Mother Nature's stone formation process, allowing us to offer a wider variety of colors and textures than our competitors. If you have a specific type of natural stone in mind for your fireplace surround, bring it in. We can probably match it. Our Cast Stone Mantels Have the Look of Real Cut Stone:
We take great care to ensure our cast stone mantles look as authentic as possible. We use real crushed stone, and all of our cast stone mantelpieces are acid-washed to simulate the appearance of quarried stone almost exactly. Cast Stone Mantels are Durable:
Cast stone mantles by Stromberg are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Our cast stone mantel surrounds can handle heat, cold, and moisture, and will weather better than many types of natural cut stone if you decide to install your cast stone mantelpiece outdoors.GFRC Fireplace Mantels and Surrounds
While very few would argue that concrete is a visually-pleasing building material, it does have a few downsides, including its heavy weight and its tendency to swell and crack when exposed to significant amounts of moisture. If you're planning to purchase a mantle for your living room, master bedroom, or outdoor kitchen, GFRC is a great choice. Here's why:GFRG Fireplace Mantels and Surrounds
GFRC Fireplace Surrounds are Safe and Durable:
Because GFRC is fire resistant, you can depend on a GFRC mantelpiece to keep your family safe. A GFRC mantel surround is also extremely durable. A mantle constructed of this material is able to withstand the heat of even a very large fire, and GFRC is also suitable for outdoor use. A GFRC chimneypiece will not rot, swell, or wear away when exposed to moisture, and the unique properties of this material also allow GFRC mantles to resist cracking.
GFRC Mantels are Available in a Number of Finishes:
When you choose a GFRC fireplace surround, you can get the look of authentic limestone and terra cotta at a price that is typically much lower than the real thing. GFRC mantles are also available in a finish that can be painted, so your mantelpiece will work well with any color scheme.
GFRC Mantel Shelves Offer a Huge Number of Design Possibilities:
Many mantles are still made using old-fashioned tools and techniques, but Stromberg has found a better way! All of our GFRC fireplace surrounds are made using molds. This allows us to form our GFRC mantles into virtually any shape imaginable, and it ensures our finished mantles are exactly what our customers were promised at the beginning of the process.
If you're looking for a material that can help you bring your complex and finely-detailed mantlepiece design to life, GFRG is the perfect choice. Here are just a few reasons why you might want to consider Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum for your architectural chimneypiece.
The use of molds ensures a consistent look: If you're planning to install several fireplace mantles, choosing GFRG will ensure each finished fireplace mantle will be exactly the same. Building GFRG fireplace mantels does not involve techniques like chiselling that can easily result in errors and slight differences from one product to the next. All of our GFRG fireplace mantels are cast with molds, so you know exactly what the finished product will look like right from the start. It's lightweight:
With GFRG fireplace surrounds, even very large designs will not generally pose a problem for the surrounding walls. At only two to three pounds per square foot, GFRG fireplace surrounds weigh only a fraction of those constructed from more traditional materials like marble and granite. It's safe:
GFRG fireplace mantels are completely fireproof. GFRG mantles will never catch fire, even if they are exposed to direct flame for several hours.
If you're a person who is always rearranging your living room and updating the look of your home, you'll love GFRG fireplace mantels. Available in a special white finish that can be painted any color you'd like, GFRG fireplace mantels are extremely versatile. Test out different colors and techniques to find one that works best, or just leave your GFRG fireplace surround white for an understated, classic look.
* GFRG surrounds should not be exposed to moisture, and are best suited for indoor use.Granite Fireplace Mantels and Surrounds
Granite, a type of natural stone composed of minerals like quartz and mica, has been used as a building material since antiquity. Today, granite is a favorite building material among many home and business owners. At Stromberg, we are pleased to offer granite fireplace surrounds to our valued clients. If you're wondering which material to use for your mantelpiece, here are some facts about granite mantles that may make your decision a little easier. Granite Fireplace Mantels are Beautiful:
Many manmade materials used to construct mantles are a single, solid color. Even the best synthetic materials simply cannot replicate the depth and texture of color found in real granite. This material ranges in color from pink to black, and even the simplest granite mantel shelves will literally take your breath away with their rich colors and timeless beauty. Fireplace Surrounds Made of Granite are Durable and Strong:
You want your chimneypiece to last for many years, which is why finding a strong material for your fireplace surround is so important. Aside from diamonds, granite is the hardest stone in the world, so granite mantel surrounds can resist chips and scratches in ways few other materials can. Granite is the perfect choice of material for outdoor fireplace surrounds; a mantelpiece made of granite will stand up to even the harshest of climates. GraniteMantels are All Natural:
Granite fireplace surrounds are made entirely of natural materials. You don't have to worry about harmful chemicals or additives, so you can feel good about installing a granite mantelpiece in your home, hotel, or restaurant.Marble Fireplace Mantels
When many people think of marble, it's the milky white statues carved by the Greeks and the Romans that instantly spring to mind. Marble was once a very common choice of material for fireplace surrounds, and it has some advantages over other mantel surround materials. Depending on the type of hearth you desire, a marble mantelpiece may be the perfect choice for you.
Marble fireplace surrounds can be embellished with fine details. Throughout history, marble fireplace mantels have served as a kind of canvas for the world's finest artisans. Marble is softer than other materials like granite that are used to construct fireplace mantels. This property makes marble the best choice of material if you hope to have carvings of figures or other motifs incorporated into your mantel surround.
Marble mantels are safe and durable. Marble is a non-combustible material, and is therefore a safe choice for mantles. Marble is more porous than other natural stone materials like granite, but a marble fireplace surround will last for many years if it is properly cared for. Marble can be damaged by acids, so it is best to keep your marble fireplace mantel indoors if your area gets significant amounts of acid rain.
Marble fireplace surrounds are visually appealing. Some people would prefer to have mantel shelves constructed of pure white marble, but there are many exciting colors available. The various colors of the swirls and veins often seen in marble give a deep texture and charm to mantles constructed of this natural material.
