Of all of the projects we build each and every year at Archadeck of Charlotte, the most talked about, used, and appreciated are the sun rooms and porches with outdoor fireplaces. This is way past a trend now and we design and build them each and every week of the year as though we were only building a deck.
Whether you want a 4 season room (heated and cooled), a sun or covered porch, or simply a screen porch or patio, the outdoor fireplace adds the focal point, flexability with weather for comfort, and aesthetic appeal that todays consumer demands.
There are gas powered and wood burning fireplaces and the cost will vary depending on size. They must be built in compliance with local building codes and properly flashed to avoid roof leaks. To see many design ideas, go to www.charlotte.archadeck.com
