Outdoor fire places are excellent ways to add long-lasting value to your Portland property. The following are a few considerations to make when constructing your outdoor fireplace.
Outdoor Fireplace Materials
Outdoor fireplaces are built to last as long as your home. Freestanding outdoor fireplaces are made of the most sturdy, reliable, and elegant materials. Common material choices for outdoor fireplaces include brick, tile, brick, stone, and stucco.
The outdoor fireplace installation team at Sprenger Masonry will work with you every step of the way in order to design the customized outdoor fireplace that best fits your Portland property. They can supply you with sample materials and design drawings to help you realize your vision of your outdoor fireplace.
Outdoor Fireplace Safety
By hiring professional outdoor fireplace experts, you ensure that you have added to your Portland family’s enjoyment in the safest way possible. As always, outdoor fireplaces should be constructed away from flammable materials. These include certain portions of your property as well as landscape fixtures like trees or bushes.
The outdoor fireplace experts at Sprenger Masonry will also design your fireplace with all of the necessary safety features. Each of our fireplaces is compatible with a spark guard. In addition, you can use a fire resistant mat when your fireplace is in use.
Consider Your Family Activities
The best aspect of outdoor fireplaces is that they enhance family activities. Oftentimes, Portland families do not use the outside of their properties after dark. The outdoor fireplace gives your family a fun place to gather in the evening, a place that you usually would not.
As such, when considering the design of your outdoor fireplace, you should think about the unique aspects of your family. If you are the type of family that likes to gather around meals, a outdoor fireplace on the deck close to a dining area may be the optimal choice. If you are the type of family that likes a more outdoorsy feel, placing the outdoor fireplace further from your property can provide more enjoyment.
