There is nothing quite like sitting around a fire with good food and great company. Fire adds a welcoming atmosphere to your deck, provides a focal point, lets you enjoy your space on chilly evenings, and can even serve as a cooking spot. But what kind of fire feature will you install? There are lots of great choices!
Fire pits come in three varieties; wood-burning, natural gas and propane. They can be made from brick, stone, concrete or metal. You can have one custom made, do-it-yourself or buy a prefabricated unit. Just remember that a fire feature needs to sit on fireproof tiling, fire bricks or a fire mat and must be at least 10 feet away from the house. A fire pad should extend at least 24 inches beyond the fire pit in all directions. Make sure there are no pipes underneath and no electric wires overhead. Also keep foliage and trees a safe distance away. Check that your deck is strong enough to support a fire pit. If you’re tackling the project yourself and are unsure, talk with a local deck contractor before construction begins. Try to find someone with expertise in fire pit design.
If your deck is a favorite gathering spot, enhance it with the addition of a fire feature. Dancing flames enrich any gathering and make lingering after dinner a special treat. No matter what type of fire feature you choose, you will find that it adds warmth, enhances enjoyment and extends the time you are able to spend on your deck.
