The addition of this element automatically turns the area into a livable place and a patio, deck, or any other area of the landscape. These fireplaces can be constructed from a variety of materials and Epik Masonry also customizes them to your taste and we have created some of the most attractive fireplaces in homes across Ventura County.
The BenefitsEpik masonry knows exactly where to position the fireplace in order to make optimum use of the available area. Apart from the outdoor fireplace, we also ensure that there is plenty of room for seating and also for an outdoor kitchen, if that is the requirement. This means we have to work very carefully with the available space and make the area cozy and comfortable as well as functional and useful. There are some very evident benefits to having a fireplace:
- Warmth - Having an outdoor fireplace ensures that you can enjoy the outdoor areas of your home right round the year. Once you have a nice fire going, you can relax and entertain in that space regardless of how inclement the weather is.
- Cooking - Though a patio or a deck might have a fireplace not everyone wants an outdoor kitchen. In such cases, the fireplace can double up as a fire source for coking. Adding a fire grate can turn it into a functional BBQ or grill.
- Entertaining - We create outdoor fireplaces and seating areas that are creatively integrated into the design of the surrounding landscape. It is a very effective way of extending the indoor spaces of your home or bringing the outdoors into the interiors. Nothing adds to a summer patio party like a cozy outdoor fireplace or fire pit. When incorporated into landscaping designs, outdoor fireplaces create a very alluring ambience and add instant warmth to the area.
Types of FireplacesFireplaces can be wood fired or might operate on gas. Some people prefer the rustic feel of a wood fireplace but these are not permitted in every area and gas or pellet fireplaces are an ideal, convenient and low-maintenance option. They are also more environmentally-friendly and are more cost-effective t9oo. Thus the fire source becomes a major consideration while we are installing your outdoor fireplace for you. They can be made of stone, stucco, brick or concrete and there are a number of other materials that can be used in their construction.
You can also opt for an outdoor fireplace that has been built-into the landscape or a standalone piece.
