5 Key Things to Look for When Choosing a Fire Pit

Aside from the type of fuel, there are other important things that you need to consider when building a fire pit including the type of material, local building codes, maintenance, and size.

1. Fuel

Regardless of whether you choose a wood-burning or gas fire pit, it is important that you keep sparks contained. Also, take note that not all communities permit wood-burning fire pits so make sure that you check your local building codes first. In addition, consider the installation when choosing the type of fuel. For instance, natural gas fire pits will need a supply line which should be installed by a professional gas company.

2. Material

When choosing the material, here are some things you need to take note of:

  • Only use materials that are fire-rated. The safest option with guaranteed durability and longevity include stone, brick, cement, ceramic, and copper.
  • Don’t use flammable materials and those that can hold water like river rocks, pea gravel, limestone, or sandstone. Rocks with trapped moisture will explode once high heat reaches them.
  • Denser and less porous materials, such as granite and marble, are less likely to absorb water and explode which makes them ideal for building fire pits.
  • Make sure that you are choosing a material that can withstand the heat produced by your fire source and won’t break apart.

Always consult a professional when choosing the right type of material for your fire pit. A1 Stone World has a team of industry experts who can help you to prevent the risk of fire accidents.

3. Local Building Codes

There are several fire pit styles you can choose from, but there are options that are illegal in some states due to environmental dangers and safety reasons. For instance, stray embers may cause fire and the smoke from the fire pits may create health risks to neighboring dwellings.

So make sure to check local ordinances and codes as well as the permits needed, regardless if you’ll be using natural stones, concrete blocks, or other materials.

Other local safety guidelines you need to consider are:

  • Distance of your fire pit from your fence, house, and other flammable structures
  • The required base material and height of your fire pit
  • Dimensions (e.g. diameter of round fire pits, fire pit height, size, etc.)
  • Other restrictions in design specifications

Tip: You can combine different stones, shapes, and colors to create a unique look to your fire pit. Using stone remnants is also a great idea to reduce your expenses.

4. Maintenance

Take note that no matter how strong and heat-resistant fire pit materials are, they are not heat-proof and can crack under extreme heat and sudden temperature fluctuations. So, make sure that you know how to care for your fire pit to prevent damage and ensure that it will last for a long time.

5. Size

Depending on your space, too large fire pits can be a hazard and may not leave enough space for seating. They can also overshadow other features, so make sure that you choose a size that will harmonize with your yard’s design.
