“I had the best experience in having your company make a mantle for my home remodeling project. With only a picture of what was there and no idea of what I wanted, your design team sprang into action to help me. Working with Rick was amazing as he took the time to draw out the look I was after and explain what I needed to assure it would fit, that it had the correct height with my weird ceiling angle, and all the options on the species, surfacing, and finishes. After it was designed I was waiting for the sticker shock of cost, and again, I was surprised. I expected to pay a whole lot more for the time and talent that went into a custom mantle. It was better than what I pictured in my mind; my wife and I could not be more satisfied with the final look. Thank you Kwaterski Bros. for your outstanding service and customer satisfaction!”

“Thank you for your help in regard in choosing a mantle. Your assistance in the store, on the phone, and the e-mailed photos have all been quite helpful in our quest for the "perfect" piece. Tell Dean and any others involved with preparing OUR mantle "THANKS" from us. We LOVE the aromatic cedar piece: the knots, the grain, and the color, it IS beautiful!”

– Linda and John Peterson
