Let Us Build Your Outdoor Fireplace!

Want your family, friends, and neighbors to sit and stay awhile? You may never get them to leave if you add an outdoor fireplace to your deck, patio, or backyard living area. It’s our belief that outdoor fireplaces are the very best way to enhance your outdoor living space. Though fireplaces are gorgeous most anywhere, we especially like them outdoors because the red brick chimney is usually left exposed, which adds great height and drama, and really celebrates the structure of the fireplace and chimney. Not only is an outdoor fireplace a focal point that’s great for gatherings, but it allows you to better enjoy your favorite outdoor space year-round.

Wood-Burning vs. Gas-Fueled Outdoor Fireplaces

Both wood-burning and gas fireplaces have their merits outdoors, where the considerations and priorities are somewhat different from those for an indoor fireplace. The main differences between these two types of fireplaces is that wood-burners put off a lot of heat, don’t require a gas line, and have that natural fire look and smell that’s so desirable. However, there’s certainly more hassle involved with feeding a wood fire and making sure that it’s operating safely and not smoking too much. Those who choose gas fireplaces for their outdoor spaces inevitably end up doing so because they’re easy to light and typically safer than wood-burning fireplaces. They also don’t require a chimney and don’t create smoke. On the downside, they don’t create as much warmth as wood and can’t quite match the charm of an authentic fire. The choice is yours, and those of us at A to Z Chimney Services are happy to help you make it. We know the pros and cons of each type of fireplace and can give you the information you need to make the best choice for you and your family.

Custom Outdoor Fireplaces

Because so much brick or stonework is exposed on an outdoor fireplace, it’s a great place for our masons to get creative while also nodding to the architecture of the house —whether that be Tuscan, contemporary, or traditional. Your outdoor fireplace can be made of traditional brick and mortar or of stone, stucco, concrete, or a combination of these. It can even be made to be two-sided and can be freestanding or connected to your outdoor structure.

In addition, our masons can lay the brick for your hearth in a variety of patterns such as herringbone or basketweave, so you can get that custom look you want. Of course, in spite of all our talk of outdoor fireplaces being dramatic and imposing, they can also be made to be modern, simple and understated. Whatever your taste, we can bring it to life.

Dear A to Z,

Thank you for mailing us the free Home Show Tickets!! We really enjoyed the show!

Ironically it was at the show last year that we became acquainted with your competitor involved with the pellet stove cleaning mis-diagnosis (the unnecessary need of installing of a " T" clean out). After utilizing your service and submitting your findings to your competitor they reluctantly consented to refund the service/inspection fee they had charged in addition to the fee of cleaning our dryer vent which was performed during the same service call.

You can be assured that in the future we will continue to support your company for our pellet stove and dryer vent cleaning needs.
