Limestone and Marble Fire Surrounds
Here at Manchester Fireplaces we have a huge range of both marble and limestone fire surrounds with mantel widths from 44" up to a whopping 63".
The typical marble used in our surrounds is carrera marble, used in building decor and sculptures for thousands of years and mined in Tuscany, Italy. This marble can be described as a white or blue/grey in appearance with some natural veins. Limestone is a very porous material compared to marble and absorbs liquids and other similar substances from the environment more meaning it requires more maintenance, mainly cleaning due to it being marked easily. If this bothers you we would recommend you choose one of our marble surrounds.
