Ideal Fire Pit Materials for your New Hampshire Patio

Fire pits are the ideal heating solution for your New Hampshire patio. The low profile of a fire pit allows it pride of place on your patio as a focal point that doesn’t obscure a breathtaking view, and helps to create a lively communal area to gather for warmth and entertainment. Selecting the right design and construction material for your fire pit is vital in order to make sure your fire pit functions at its best.

Safe Construction Materials

Fire pits have to withstand extremely high temperatures, whether your choice of fuel is wood or gas. Hence, the internal section of the fire pit needs to be constructed from fire-resistant materials to hold up against direct heat from flames without cracking, exploding or setting alight itself. Granted that the inside is constructed properly, the outside of the pit can be made from a variety of materials such as brick, natural stone or concrete blocks with a more aesthetic purpose.

Design Considerations

The design of your fire pit will depend on the space available on your patio. Fire pits are commonly built in a square or circular shape, but they can also be custom-built to suit more unusual needs, and can even be integrated as part of a wall or other hardscaped feature.
