Archadeck of Charlotte has seen huge growth in demand for outdoor fireplaces. Whether it is a stand alone on a paver patio or integrated into a screen porch, outdoor fireplaces are going up in neighborhoods all over Charlotte. Most people opt for the real wood burning type and perhaps run a gas line out to make it easier to get the fire going.
The trick with outdoor fireplaces is to make sure the firebox and flu are designed correctly to ensure the smoke goes up, not out. It seems many contractors claim to be fireplace builders but there is a magic to correctly designing the flu geometry and it takes an experienced mason who understands the design criterion! Stone facades are the most popular in Charlotte and provide not only warmth but real entertainment value while having friends and family sit around and visit!
