Our Testimonials

Just wanted to share with you how pleased I am with today's service. I have lived in my home for over 6 years and never enjoyed the outside fireplace because honestly I didn’t know how to turn it on. Of course my wife has been on me for 5 years to call Meritage but I was sure I could figure it out. After countless attempts I finally reached out to Jon Miller and in days he had Mantel & Fireplace set up for a service call. Mantel’s service tech Jim Valdez is excellent. Not only did he give me a 30 minute warning that he would be at my house by 8:15am I found him very professional and knowledgeable about my particular fireplace. Jim knew where every hidden door was at and fixed the issue quickly.

Of course is was something simple and of course I would have never figured it out.

My wife is going to be so excited that she can enjoy and outside roaring fire this winter.

I just want to say Thank You

For EXCELLENT Service

Which is rare to find these days

Great Service Guys!

California Mantel orchestrates every aspect of the mantel business and exceeds my expectations through their superb craftsmanship, professionalism, and communication.

In my experiences they always see the big picture and the small details, and they supply abundant personal attention to both, ensuring complete project success. I admire their commitment and concerns for construction schedules and deadlines. From field installers to project managers - that what they do is complete and correct. It's the result of the innovative spirit that Stephen Casey and his management team have installed. What differentiates California Mantel is their superior level of quality and workmanship that goes the extra mile to ensure we're able to surpass our homebuyers' expectations.

When you associate with California Mantel you become a continuously impressed and satisfied client that virtually translates into a "client for life."

Hi Josh,

I'm sorry I haven't sent this earlier but we have been busy trying to get moved in. I wanted to tell you how beautiful the mantel is and what a very nice job the installers did. They were extremely careful and it shows!! I couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you.

Hi Josh

It's been a pleasure doing business with you. Luis was great to work with as well and did a wonderful job on the installation. We LOVE the new mantel and look forward to enjoying it in the years to come.

Dear Josh,

Two months ago my wife and I walked into your showroom in Anaheim. Due to unique location and the size of our old fireplace, we had very limited options for our new Mantel. To our surprise your showroom was filled with variety of Mantels, we realized that we had many options that we could choose from.

With your help and patience we chose the Mantel that we like. I just wanted to thank you first, for all your help, and secondly, most importantly for an on-time delivery and your professional and honest communications to keep us updated during that time. It was truly pleasurable experience doing business with you.

Special thanks are due for your installer crew, whom were very professional and courteous. Their attentions to detail were amazing and they did a perfect job. When it comes to Fireplace and Mantels, I would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family members. I have attached a picture from our new fire place, we love the new look our living room.

Sincerely,

Mark Sabet

Hi Josh,

As promised, here a few pictures of the finished fireplace. We have truly fallen in love with what Antonio did to bring it all together. We can now move ahead with an art piece for the wall above it.

Thank you so VERY much for your commitment to make things right and being a person of your word. It is truly a pleasure to do business with a company that is ethical and takes pride in what they deliver. Your parents should be proud of how you and your sisters are carrying out their legacy.

Have a great weekend and many thanks Josh.

I met Josh Casey at California Mantel's Anaheim showroom when I was looking for two fireplace mantels for my Palos Verdes home. Josh was very easy to work with....friendly, patient, flexible, and open to suggestions and change. He was very prompt in returning my phone calls and emails.

He worked with me and my husband until we were completely satisfied with our selections. He was able to customize our fireplace mantels by using top of one fireplace and legs of another fireplace to make it unique for our home.

I was able to work with him without any pressure. The workers installed the mantels and did a great job. I cannot thank Josh and California Mantel enough!

Josh,

The "Old World" Parchment Manly and Mannix mantels are perfect fits for my Manhattan Beach project.

Appreciate the responsiveness, attention to detail, and professionalism, and CalMantel is my company for mantels on all future projects.

Frank,

It's been a few months since Cal Mantel installed my Mom's new fireplace. I didn't want to send you a picture until the new doors came in (it took 8 weeks to complete that order). Needless to say, my Mom's very happy and the neighbors are all amazed. Thanks again for a job well done.

Sincerely,

Michael Basch


We had the pleasure of working with Josh Casey. Buying this mantel was the best experience of our long ordeal to add a fireplace to our home. Josh was extremely accommodating, working with our schedule and making sure we saw all the options available to us before making our final decision.

They have many styles, colors, and finishes to choose from and a wonderful show room. We had not seen anything like what California Mantel had on our long quest to find a mantel.

Josh walked us thru every step of the way from selection to production to installation. When we had difficulty with the installation because our contractor had not made sure our wall was flat, Josh's guy's did what it took to made the mantel fit and look great.

We couldn't be happier.

Hi Josh,

I just want to tell the mantel looks FANTASTIC!! I am so glad I chose the Padthaway. It just looks stunning and really makes the room.

It was a pleasure working with you. Your guys that came out to the house were super nice, super clean and great to work with.

Sorry it took me so long but here is the final product. We absolutely love it and it turned out great. My stainer was the one who ended up finishing the mantel. It looks fantastic and thank you again for all your hard work.

Thanks again,

Nancy Cootes


I completely forgot to send you before and after photos for our fireplace.... a perfect fit in every way. Thank you so much for transforming our tiny house into a place of beauty!

Thank you and your staff for the outstanding job to ensure not only that we got exactly what we wanted, but the constant communication before, during, and after the shipment. It allowed us to receive the shipment within with our tricky time schedule and in perfect condition.

The professional and friendly treatment we received made us hope that when you are ever in town, you'll drop by for visit!

Warmly,

Shelly and Craig Williams


Frank,

I really appreciate all of your efforts. Thanks to your recommendation on the Barossa. This style will work perfectly in my home. Your drawings and emails made it easy for me to measure the fireplace and have confidence that this will work without seeing the actual mantel in person. I am also very impressed with you personable attitude, responsiveness and professionalism. These attributes are paramount in the client service world. California Mantel is fortunate to have you representing their company.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information from me.

It has been a pleasure working with you.
