Fires of Tradition Perth Cast Iron Mantels

Cast Iron has a distinctive quality and strength of character all on its own. Iron mantels were fairly common in the late 1800’s. We have faithfully reproduced one of these, which allows its unique beauty and craftsmanship of the past to live again.
Many of the mantel designs incorporate authentic details and elements that were found in original antiques. We came across our Perth mantel in a salvage yard south of London England. Cast mantels were quite common at the turn of the century, and the material itself has a quality and strength of character all its own. This mantel is the perfect accompaniment to the Windsor front.

All our mantels are designed with some depth to them, which gives any mantel more pleasing lines. However, this requires that the firebox be installed ahead of the drywall, whether they are used with a rebate or a cabinet mantel.

Similar with the hearth- the firebox must be installed at a certain height off the finished floor, in order to allow the hearth to be properly located. Please consult the installation manual for these specifics.

Rebate mantels require that a ‘chase’ be constructed of 2×4’s and drywall to accommodate the depth of the firebox. A cabinet mantel is deep enough to accommodate the firebox, eliminating the need of a chase.

Cozy Comfort Plus Inc. installed a new high efficiency furnace in our house two years ago and it has been operating perfectly ever since. Their service was straight forward, reasonably priced and good value for money. They even walked us through the complicated rebate program that was hard to understand without being involved in the industry.

I would highly recommend them for your next heating and cooling needs.

I have needed immediate service and repair for the Heat Pump in my Condo in Mississauga three times over the last 8 years. Every time during the heat wave in the summer, and also Ice storm in the winter. Cozy Comfort Plus was referred to me by a family member. Since then Cozy Comfort Plus has always been the place for me to go to for professional and great technical service and repair, even for maintenance on my Gas fire place. As I needed to keep my tenants happy and satisfied. They helped me save thousands of Dollars, by recognizing the problem and replacing the faulty part on a cheap Heat Pump installed by the original builder. Cozy Comfort Plus truly stand to their name. I have referred them to my elderly parents also living in a Condo and they had the same great experience I did. Their technicians are experienced, professionals and extremely customer friendly. In all occasions, they treated it as if their own. Thank you Cozy Comfort Plus
