Ordering, Manufacturing, Delivery & Installation

How to order your Tartaruga cast stone masterpiece!

To discuss a specific architectural style or what style will fit best in your home, call us to discuss the details. Our design team will listen to your requirements and create a proposal just for you.

Once you’ve chosen your perfect mantelpiece or stone kitchen hood, we’ll create a comprehensive quote for you. This quote includes:

  • Design and size customization
  • Hand-cast manufacture and finishing to your requirements
  • Secure shipping for your stone mantel or kitchen hood anywhere in the world

We can also provide an installation quotation if you wish.

After review and any alterations, you accept the quote and confirm with a 50% deposit. Once received, your project will be scheduled to be crafted.

We will create a shop drawing for your approval prior to starting the manufacturing of your mantel or kitchen hood. Once you have verified the style, dimensions and cast stone finish, we start the crafting process.

Once your new mantel or hood is completed, you will be notified and we will send you photos of the finished product. At this point, we’ll require final payment in order to schedule crating and shipping or delivery and installation.

Expert installation

We have a network of experienced installers around North America and Europe to help speed up the installation process. Most of our customers hire a professional stone installer that we recommend using our Installer Referral service. All our installers are trained and experienced at installing custom stone fireplace mantels and kitchen hoods.

If you choose to manage your own installation, that’s no problem. You or your contractor can call us at any time for technical assistance.

Take a photo!

Please don’t hesitate to send us photos of your pieces once your installation is complete. Seeing our work being enjoyed by customers in their own homes gives our artisans a sense of purpose and completion.

If you choose to share images of your new fireplace mantel or extractor hood on social media, tagging us at #TartarugaDesign is greatly appreciated. These images often inspire other clients to make their mantels magnificent too!
