Designing an outdoor fireplace for your backyard patio project has many options. Moreover, in designing an outdoor fireplace, one must consider the price. Additionally, we build small, medium, and large outdoor fireplaces on many projects. Some design options include wood storage, a hearth, and sitting ideas. To design an outdoor fireplace, you must understand the construction process of a fireplace. The general components include the firebox, throat, and actual chimney itself. Our designers can determine the correct size of the firebox, throat, and height of the chimney. If you don’t design your outdoor fireplace correctly, you might encounter issues with improper drafting. Consequently, we can calculate the size of the firebox, throat, and height of the chimney to ensure proper smoke drafting.
Other options in designing your outdoor chimney include natural gas as fuel, making it easier to enjoy your fireplace. When considering the style of your outdoor fireplace, you might want to consider your budget. This budget will help your designer develop the best design for your outdoor fireplace. We design most of the fireplaces for patio and deck projects based on ideas you’ve seen on other sites. Specifically, if you have a design in mind, we have professional Masons that can replicate that design. One of our most popular designs includes terra-cotta and rain caps in our fireplace designs.
The fundamentals of building an outdoor patio fireplace include building the proper foundation. Once you have designed where you want to place your outdoor wood-burning fireplace on your patio, you need a design. Accordingly, Fairfax Contractor can build a custom-built stone or brick outdoor patio fireplace. After that, we lay the foundation, we construct the substructure using cinder blocks. Then, we create the outline of your outdoor fireplace with this cinder block base. Next, we determine the firebox size and any options, including a hearth, mantle, and storage area. Our team will apply your chosen stone or brick as a veneer over the cinder block. Lastly, for safety purposes, we construct the interior of the firebox using fire brick. We lay the fire brick with refractory mortar, which can withstand high temperatures.
