We help to install gas fireplaces that are contained within means. Many clients prefer gas fireplaces due to their low maintenance and energy efficiency. Gas fireplaces rarely require extra cleaning before and after a fire is started and require less physical demands than that of wood burning fireplaces. Our gas fireplaces can be built with screen protectants to ensure that flames, fumes, and sparks do not fly from the pit, and they’re finished with a modern and chic design that helps create both ambiance and comfort outdoors.
Wood Burning Fireplaces
Wood burning fireplaces are the definition of tradition when it comes to outdoor fireplaces. Unlike gas fireplaces, wood burning fireplaces require fuel from wooden logs that help emit their heat. Wood burning fireplaces require the use of sawdust bricks or dried wood logs to ensure that the fire is both healthy and safe. Wood burning fireplaces also require regular cleaning and ash removal to prevent unwanted spreading of the fire outside of its means.
Masonry fireplaces are those that are constructed from brick and mortar. Sometimes resembling brick ovens or the traditional stand-alone chimneys, masonry fireplaces are not only vintage but also incredibly useful for outdoor spaces. Newer versions of masonry fireplaces can also be built from stone and are arched at an angle that allows for smoke to pass through a narrow chimney. Masonry fireplaces are versatile and go great with any outdoor aesthetic and can help set your space apart from the rest.
