Custom Outdoor Fireplaces And Fire Pits

Servicing Metro Atlanta

Licensed and Insured

Winters in Atlanta can get chilly, so you need a way to hold the summery heat if you plan to spend time outside. One way to add an extra flair to your yard and stay warm is by building an outdoor fireplace or a fire pit.

Tasteful additions to your home, fireplaces keep things cozy in your home. Especially impressive if you build them outside, you can make outdoor fireplaces and fire pits the focal point of your backyard space.

Contrary to popular belief, not all fireplaces are alike. There are different styles and sizes, and you can customize them based on the look and feel of your outdoor living space. Always speak to a professional to understand your options and get a design consultation that fits your needs.

An outdoor fireplace is a perfect place to gather with friends and family. Once you have one, a fireplace is an essential part of your yard or patio, and they’re a big hit when entertaining friends, family, or coworkers. If you’re wondering whether an external fireplace is right for your home, we can help you decide. We’ll show you how a fireplace can add a stunning touch to outdoor living spaces and enhance your home’s aesthetic.

Outdoor living with added comfort

Fire pits and fireplaces are the most requested project when homeowners are looking to renovate their outdoor living space. They provide more than warmth, after all. These features are statement pieces that add a touch of country charm to your home’s outside decor and boost your home’s value.

Make sure you have a plan when determining where you’ll install your fireplace. Always aim for a non-intrusive piece that is properly installed and built to withstand the Atlanta elements. Additionally, a fireplace or fire pit needs special considerations like a concrete base to keep your home and family safe.

Perfect for backyard entertainment

Other than being a unique accessory for your backyard, fireplaces are perfect for backyard entertainment in Atlanta. You can roast s’mores, cook a pizza, or relax with good company and a gorgeous view. You usually spend the summer months outside, but once the winter winds blow, many yards become abandoned. This doesn’t have to be the case when you install a fire pit.

The purpose of external fireplaces varies based on size and type. Some Atlanta homeowners want a fire pit as a decorative piece. If that’s the case, it doesn’t make sense to build an overwhelmingly large one.

Others use the fireplace for cooking, which is safe if you use the right one. You should only cook with traditional wood-burning fireplaces. Gas fireplaces are best for places where wood-burning is risky but should never be used for cooking. The fireplace must be protected so that it doesn’t sustain damage from the Atlanta elements, no matter the season.

Fireplaces and fire pits are usually installed in backyards. If your patio is large enough, a fireplace or fire pit, along with tasteful decor, will look great outside.

When opting for a fireplace, place it in a larger backyard so that it won’t interfere with your decor or backyard function. Since a fire pit patio differs in terms of size and location, here are a few pointers to keep in mind if the patio is where your fireplace is going to be:

  • Always place the fireplace or fire pit away from trees, shrubbery
  • Understand the zoning requirements in Metro Atlanta
  • Make sure the fireplace doesn’t intrude with the other functions of your patio

Use these tips to make the best choice for the fire pit patio style you want. At Custom Concrete Inc., we are a concrete contractor well-versed in the different styles and requirements for a fireplace in the Atlanta area. We’ll give you solid advice and plenty of options to suit your budget and lifestyle. Every project we work on is carefully planned, and we walk you through the process to make your choice easier.

Landscape considerations

Let’s assume you’ve chosen the location of your custom fireplace. Place it somewhere where the landscaping matches its style and that of your home. For example, it doesn’t make sense to have a modern fireplace while your patio, home, or landscape has a rustic layout. The right landscape enhances the fireplace and seating area, complementing it and making it look even better right down to the fire brick.

Having an outdoor fireplace is not only about looks—functionality matters, too. Atlanta Custom Concrete Inc. specialists meet with you to create a comprehensive plan that considers landscape, feasibility, and aesthetics for your project. You’ll see precisely how the fireplace will look and receive an expert opinion that saves you hassle and time.

Enhance the look with decorative concrete

You want to spend quality time in your home, and it should look as good as it feels. Outdoor patios, especially fire pits, need concrete installed. Gone are the days of unsightly, gray concrete. At Custom Concrete Inc., we offer beautiful decorative concrete options that enhance the sturdiness and look of fire pits and outdoor fireplaces
