Fire pits are a stylish and functional addition to any outdoor living space, whether that’s a patio, deck, or backyard. A fire pit can serve as the main point of an outdoor gathering, the setting for quiet reflection, and an additional source of heat in the chillier months. Here are five things to keep in mind while shopping for a new concrete fire pit, as a high-quality bowl is an investment worth making. It’s smart to invest in a brand-new fire pit made of concrete.
Shape & Size
A rectangular fire table makes a stunning focal point around which your guests can mingle and share stories. You can use it to rest your wine glasses while you have a conversation. You may prefer a square fire pit if you have limited space.
The space needed for a round concrete fire bowl is smaller, and it can be used either as an accent or as the main focus of the area. Put it on a pedestal by the pool for a one-of-a-kind outdoor accent.
Handling & Delivery
You should look for a concrete fire pit that has been designed to distribute heat evenly. With a simple two-man lift, you can easily set it up on your deck or relocate it to different locations on your patio. It’s simple to rearrange your outdoor space. When shopping for a new concrete fire pit, keep this in mind.
Think about the logistics of getting your new concrete fire pit set up. Will it arrive safely in transit? If the installation site is inconveniently located, you may need assistance. A gas fitter may be needed if you plan to use a gas or propane fire pit and want to ensure it is installed properly.
Castin Crete provides detailed installation instructions and is available to answer any questions you may have.
Fire Pit Fuel
Propane and natural gas can now be used to light several varieties of concrete fire pits. You can easily light your fire pit with the turn of a knob and the click of a lighter, and you can adjust the height of the flame as needed. Instead of waiting for the coals to go out, you may turn it off. For the most heat, you should get a gas or propane fire pit with a high BTU output.
Note that wood should not be burned directly in beautiful concrete fire pits. You should search for a wood-burning fire pit that has a smokeless, removable insert that is simple to clean. In many areas, burning wood is prohibited during the summer months; therefore, we recommend a gas fire pit.
Whether for safety or aesthetics, there are many concrete fire pit accessories you might consider buying. These include:
Concrete fire pits are very popular right now, but not all concrete is the same. Be sure to ask about how long the concrete will last. Find out how the material is made so that it doesn’t crack and what you need to do to keep your concrete fire pit in good shape. Sometimes, a fire pit cover is all you need. Lastly, ask how the concrete fire pit will hold up over time.
