5) Is fireplace mantel spelled “tle” or “tel”?

6) I talked to Mr. Agee on the phone the other day and he sounds really cute. Is he as cute in person as he sounds?

7) What is your return policy?

View Returns page.

One of the obvious drawbacks from ordering online is that the product cannot be viewed in person. We have never had any returns due to the fact that they simply did not like the item—and we sell a lot of fireplace mantels nationwide.

If you feel you must return your fireplace mantel, then you would be responsible for the shipping cost, and it must be received in re-sellable condition. We reserve the right to charge a re-stocking fee.

Absolutely, no returns on custom orders. It is very important that you take correct measurements.

Please contact us with any questions about this policy at 877.768.3678.
