Types of Outdoor Fireplaces

When deciding what type of outdoor fireplace to install, you’ll have several important decisions to make:

  • Material – Brick, stone, marble, tile are just a few options for what type of material you’ll want to use for your outdoor fireplace. Of course, you’ll want it to match or complement the rest of your outdoor space!
  • Fuel source – If you use natural gas to heat your home, it might make sense to install a natural gas outdoor fireplace. If you want to go a more traditional route, you could opt for a wood-burning outdoor fireplace. Keep in mind you’ll need somewhere dry to store the wood!
  • Size – The size of your backyard will largely determine how big your outdoor fireplace should be. Keep in mind that wood-burning fireplaces will be taller to accommodate exhaust vents, while gas ones will be shorter as they don’t need exhaust vents.
  • Placement – Where you place your fireplace will depend on your local zoning codes. That’s why it’s best to have a professional like the experts at Capitol Chimney Service help you out!
  • Type – By type, we mean you can choose from a built from scratch outdoor fireplace, a prefabricated outdoor fireplace (which is assembled on site), or a completely finished unit that is simply delivered to your home—no assembly required.

Outdoor Fireplace Repair & Cleaning

When you use your outdoor fireplace, the smoke from the fire condenses into a tar-like substance called creosote. Routine fireplace cleaning will prevent a dangerous level of soot, ash, and creosote accumulation. Call Capitol Chimney Service for outdoor fireplace cleaning throughout the Maryland, DC, and Virginia areas.
