With summer coming to a close and fall right around the corner, surely many of us are looking forward to the cool evenings outdoors enjoying the natural beauty of our backyards. With that said, investing in an outdoor fireplace has become a favored home improvement project in recent years. Adding to your outdoor enjoyment and entertainment as well as the overall value of your home, these outdoor additions are well worth the investment.
The team here at American Renovation Services want to share with our valued clients some delightful, stylish ideas for your outdoor addition and your backyard environment. A very popular choice these days, outdoor fireplaces are easy to design and create and every bit as easy to install and maintain over time. Our highly skilled and trained technicians will research and determine the specific safety standards for your backyard to ensure the effective and appropriate installation of your fireplace. In addition, we will determine how to best utilize the living space in your backyard and offer you guidelines on outdoor furniture use and placement as well as appropriate specifications for your chimney.

Outdoor fireplaces come in a variety of materials, from brick, stone and stucco to concrete and afford you multiple options to choose from. Our trusted team of professionals will offer you insight on exciting ideas to enhance your open-air outdoor gathering and living space and turn your dreams and unique design concepts into true realities.
When you schedule your free consultation, our experts will help you to determine the perfect material, size, and the location of your outdoor fireplace. In addition, we assist with your decision-making when it comes to choosing between a gas or wood fireplace. If a smaller area is what you are working with we highly recommend a gas fireplace that is compact and shorter. Shorter fireplaces are less expensive and require less maintenance than a large fireplace.
Wood fireplaces are much bigger and taller and are equipped with a taller chimney. You must fuel your wood fireplace with wood and the design, creation and installation can be a bit more expensive. However, wood fireplaces create a great deal more warmth during the crisp fall nights that you will soon be sharing with family and friends. When making this decision, you want to take into consideration your outdoor space and determine what will fit best and have a more natural look.
If you have more of a liking to a warm campfire feel of your backyard, then perhaps you should consider adding a fire pit to your backyard rather than an outdoor fireplace. Fire pits are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, materials and prices and can be designed to have a very rustic look or even a classy, elegant look. They also provide a more open space for gathering and entertaining, but do not have as intimate a feeling as an outdoor fireplace would have. The intimacy and design of your outdoor living space should complement your existing décor and your personal taste. With that said, be sure to take appropriate time and have a whole lot of fun envisioning, creating and designing your outdoor layout and décor.
