Removing Mantel from Fireplace

MikeInTexasFebruary 7, 2013

Hello,
I would like to remove a wood mantel from a fireplace. Dose anyone have any advice for how to do this and what surprises to expect? The house was built in 1983. The fireplace is solid brick.

The mantel is original, I suppose. I am not certain how it is connected to the brick, but it feels fairly sturdy.

Thoughts? And, thanks!

Mike

There's a few ways it could be attached. Do you want to save the mantel?
