Options for Outdoor Fireplaces
Unlike other landscaping elements, the choices for outdoor fireplaces only boil down to two major groups—custom built and pre-built.
Here are some of the differences between these two outdoor fireplace options:
Custom is pricey; pre-built is cheap. One of the biggest differences between these two options is the price. Custom outdoor fireplace normally commands premium price tag, while a pre-fabricated one is relatively cheaper. This is because custom outdoor fireplaces are done by expert masons and installers, while pre-built ones can be done via DIY fashion. Pre-fabricated fireplaces are by default more affordable than custom-made ones.
Pre-built is installed fast; custom ones take time. The beauty of pre-fabricated fireplaces for outdoor use is that they can be installed within just a few hours. It’s like you’re just assembling a starter Lego set. Meanwhile, custom fireplaces can take a few days to a week or two depending on its size and complexity. Much care and attention to details are also done to guarantee a durable, safe, and beautiful outdoor fireplace.
Custom offers personalization; pre-built makes do with existing designs. One of the reasons why custom-built outdoor fireplaces are pricey is because you can have practically any design and size that you want. Of course, this can only be possible with an expert mason working on your specifications. Meanwhile, pre-built fireplaces offer a rather limited range of options for you.
