Frequently Asked Questions
How far should an outdoor fireplace be from the house?
A fireplace should be at least 10 to 20 ft. away from the house or any structure. While this is the recommended minimum distance, the further you have your fireplace installed, the more it reduces the chances of a fire hazard. The distance between the sitting area should be about five feet. This gives your guests a space of two feet from the fireplace. Any closer or further away may leave them too warm or too cold.
Can a gas fire pit be installed under a covered patio?
Your gas fire pit must be pre-approved by your city. While it can be installed under a covered patio, it is important that the height, ventilation, location and flooring of your outdoor space meets the manufacturer’s requirements.
Is an outdoor gas fireplace safe?
A permanent fireplace should be installed on stone, brick or a concrete slab. Maintain a safe burn by adding more fuel when required. Even when placed outside, burning plastic, trash or treated wood in your fireplace can release toxic gases which are harmful.
