About DeVinci: Founded in 1998
DeVinci Cast Stone specializes in the molding & manufacturing of precast concrete. The company was founded in 1998. Starting as a small-scale manufacturing plant for commercial precast work, DeVinci Cast Stone worked its way into the residential sector with a diverse selection of cast stone mantels. This product line has grown exponentially over the years and we now ship nationwide from our plant in Oklahoma City.

Our cast stone fireplace mantels preserve the quality, durability, and allure of cut or carved limestone at a more economical price. At first glance, it is difficult to differentiate between carved stone and cast stone fireplace surrounds. With our special wet cast process, we can replicate complicated designs with great clarity, and at a price that cannot be matched for by carved stone fireplace mantels. Fully cured, our cast stone fireplace surrounds will have compression strength of over 6,500 pounds, twice that of standard concrete. Other advantages of our fireplace surrounds include a reduced lead time, and uniformity in strength and color. The fireplace design possibilities are infinite with so many styles of stone mantels available.
