4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Get a Custom Fire Pit in Maryland Heights, MO

Poynter offers custom fire pits unique to each project we take on. We'll be able to give you the fire pit that is perfect for your home and what you want it for. We've put together four essential questions to ask before deciding what kind of fire pit you want:

  1. Do I want a permanent installation, or a portable one? A permanent fixture can add an amazing accent to the rest of your outdoor space. But a portable custom fire pit is easily removed to create more space when you're not using it.
  2. Would I prefer a gas or wood-burning fire pit? Gas fire pits can be more convenient as a fire can get started in seconds, and they are much easier to clean. Poynter has a thorough understanding of how to properly install gas fixtures and lines in order to give you a realistic, gas-powered flame.

    Others may prefer the classic wood-burning approach. It's hard to beat the crackle and pop of wood on a chilly night, and you'll be able to impress Maryland Heights, MO family and friends with your ability to create a sustainable fire.

  3. Where do I want to put my fire pit? If you opt for a permanent permanent, local laws or your HOA may have restrictions on the proximity of the fire pit to neighbor's property in Maryland Heights, MO or to trees. Where's the best place for what I want to use it for? Do you want it off away in the yard as a quiet, mini-getaway? As a central feature in your patio or terrace? Or in your pergola or pavilion so you be warm outside when the weather isn't great? Or by the swimming pool so you can stay warm while swimming at night.
  4. What type of fire pit do I want? There are several types of fire pits. Do you want one that emulates a campfire? A taller, fire column to keep guests warm during cocktails and mingling? Or a table-height fire pit, that you can drinks, appetizers, or dessert over?
