As summer comes to a close, you’re trying to savor as many warm evenings as possible; but cool nights that are quickly approaching shouldn’t stop you from spending time outdoors. If you’ve ever wished you could entertain late into the fall, toast marshmallows and make s’mores with your family in your own backyard, or even simply add a stylish accent to enhance the look and value of your home, a fire pit is an attractive addition to consider.
Fire pits are high on the list of most requested design features in a home’s outdoor space. The complexity of a fire pit varies from bland to lavish. While a more intricate and time consuming project must be professionally done, the cost is worth it when taking into account the added value, features and versatility. A fire pit can be built into a patio or backyard in many different shapes and with the stones of your choice. Since it will remain outside through all the seasons, it should be constructed to withstand the elements. A custom built fire pit will likely have a drain in the bottom so that rainfall does not collect. In the summer months when it is too hot to use your fire pit, you could easily use it for holding a large, decorative potted plant.
As you might imagine, there are regulations in regards to installing a fire pit. Consulting Staten Island contractors that are familiar with these rules is the first step in achieving the fire pit you desire. AJC Renovations can give you the information that you need to start the process and create a custom fire pit that you can enjoy for many years to come.
