Need – What do you need in a fireplace? Do you need lots of heat? Are you all about the looks? Perhaps you want to use gas over firewood. The possibilities are endless, but your need will determine what we built for you.
Location – Perhaps the second most important item on the planning list is picking the location. The location of your outdoor fireplace affect your curb appeal, landscaping, the rest of your outdoor space, and even what type of materials you decide to use. You want to choose a flat location, or have it leveled. Then you should determine how close you want your fireplace to the house. You might not want it close for any smoke to enter through house windows. Let us know what you’re looking for, and then we can help you plot out the location.
Materials – Not all stone, brick, and rock are created equal. You cannot prevent damage caused from the environment and wear and tear. The biggest thing that will keep your masonry last is proper construction. So, when you’re choosing materials for a new outdoor fireplace, talk with the professional who will build it. We can help match your materials to your home and personality. Our fireplace experts are talented and experienced at matching textures. Once the stone is chosen, we will use the best non-water-soluble refractory mortar that will keep your masonry from corroding over time.
