Custom Stone Firepit

The Advantages of Fireplaces and Fire Pits

Why Adding Heating Elements Brings Your Family Close

New fireplaces and fire pits have consistently ranked as one of the most popular outdoor projects for homeowners, and it’s not easy to see why. What could be more enjoyable than stepping outside to enjoy the comfort and relaxation of your own backyard?

Increase time spent with your friends and family with an outdoor heating element. The fire creates a focal point for gathering around, roasting marshmallows, and telling stories.

Here are several ways to enjoy your outdoor fireplace or fire pit:

A Gathering Place

Outdoor Fireplaces

In this colder winter weather, custom fireplaces and fire pits significantly extend your time outside. Fire warms the air and keeps bugs away when hosting guests and family members. Centrally located fire pits also create a gathering spot for parties and events.

Customized Options

From simple wood-burning fire pits to natural gas or propane with natural stone accents, the design of each project can be adapted to fit every yard. The style of your fireplace is up to you, from building two-story fireplaces to small gas fire pits. Esposito Masonry team members have been building elegant, inspiring outdoor fireplaces that last for decades. They carry a wide range of stone colors, shapes, and styles.

Outdoor Cooking

Not only do outdoor fire pits allow guests to enjoy outdoor entertaining well into colder months, but they’re also just as useful in the summer season too. And they’re not just for roasting marshmallows. Outdoor fireplaces can double as outdoor barbecues in a pinch as well.

Custom Outdoor Kitchen


Wood fire burning projects can help you clean up your yard. Burn branches, leaves, and yard waste, resulting in less landfill. Help keep your backyard clean and free from debris with a fire pit or fireplace.
