Why Agee

Why Choose Agee Woodworks for Your Fireplace Mantel Needs?
Our ustomers purchase their fireplace mantels from Agee Woodworks for three simple reasons: service, quality and customization.

Not all fireplace mantels are created equal, and not all rooms with fireplaces are the same. When you order from Agee Woodworks, you aren’t ordering a fireplace mantel that is identical to hundreds of other fireplace mantels that have been sitting for months in a warehouse overseas.

At Agee Woodworks, our hand-crafted fireplace mantels are made-to-order at our warehouse in Ashland, Virginia. Whether our customers order a fireplace mantel design from our website or they send a custom design for us to duplicate, they know their fireplace mantel is specifically built just for them.
Unparalleled Customer Service

We understand that for some of our customers, the vast number of choices for fireplace mantels can be overwhelming. But at Agee Woodworks, we can offer expert advice on purchasing fireplace mantels so that you can choose one that best reflects your style. Our online store guides customers through a series of options, from value fireplace mantels to custom fireplace mantels and fireplace mantel shelves. And if our customers have absolutely no idea what they need to do to order a fireplace mantel, they can begin with measuring their fireplace at our how to center, or contact us because that’s what we’re here for. We’ll walk them through the process!



Superior Quality Craftsmanship
Our goal is to create a product that our customers can enjoy for a lifetime, so we use the highest quality materials to build beautiful fireplace mantels that can transform your fireplace.
From the company’s humble beginnings in a basement more than ten years ago to the 7,500 sq. ft facility where the fireplace mantels are made today, the staff at Agee Woodworks has remained committed to building a superior product for each and every customer.

From start to finish, each mantel is assigned to one specific craftsman who is responsible for constructing the piece. When a fireplace mantel is ordered, we get to work, constructing the frame based on the inside opening. The legs, header and shelf are applied to the frame, enabling us to customize our sizes for each and every mantel that we build. Next, we apply specific accessories that determine the style of the mantel, and with the basic construction completed, the mantel is sanded and ready for finishing. We can prime, paint or stain our mantels here in our shop, or they can be delivered unfinished.

Custom Fireplace Mantels
Because our fireplace mantels are made-to-order and built onsite, we are able to create custom fireplace mantels to meet our customers’ specific needs.

One of our customers found a fireplace mantel design he liked at a competitor’s site, but the mantel was only available in certain “fixed” sizes. Like many of our customers who need custom fireplace mantels, he came to us for a design to meet his unique circumstances. We were able to duplicate the fireplace mantel style and customize it to his specifications.

Other requests for custom fireplace mantels have included:
  • A fireplace mantel built so the shelf could hold an electrical outlet
  • A double fireplace mantel built for a fireplace and a TV inset in the wall above the fireplace (just in time to hang Christmas stockings)
  • Fireplace mantels custom built to fit a tight area near a window, door or electrical outlet
  • Fireplace mantel shelves custom designed and built to cap stone
  • An assortment of fireplace mantels and shelves with deeper shelves and return depths to clear thick brick surrounds
