Make Way for Our Stone Contractors

Contemporary Stone Work, LLC is the stone contractor you want to hire for your outdoor fireplace investment. Our contractors are highly skilled at stone hardscape design and construction and have been in the business of making homeowners happy since 2011.

We believe that the people in our community should be able to enjoy their property to the fullest. Without an exterior fireplace, families and homeowners are limited in what they can do on their back patio. They can sit and enjoy the afternoon sun, but can they comfortably enjoy the evening once it starts to get a little colder? Probably not. They can dine outdoors if the weather is nice, but are they able to grill their food over the flames of an outdoor fireplace designed for cooking? No, they cannot.

An outdoor fireplace lets you treat your whole property like your own. You don’t have to limit yourself to the confines of your household. You can enjoy the backyard the way it is meant to be enjoyed.

Reap the Benefits of Outdoor Fireplaces

If you have been following the latest trends in contemporary landscaping, you have probably noticed the increasing popularity of outdoor stone fireplaces. The reasons why are more than obvious. Here are some of the primary benefits that come with having an outdoor fireplace on your property. Remember that we are the ones to work with when you want results like these.

Added Comfort

When you have an outdoor fireplace on your property, you don’t have to limit your outdoor socializing to the hot days and warm evenings. You can enjoy the outdoors all year round. You’ll feel more inclined to get fresh air, and your guests will appreciate the extra heat source, as well.

It is your property. You deserve to feel comfortable within the confines of it—whether you are in your living room or on your back patio. With an outdoor fireplace, you’ll be as comfortable as possible.

Enhance the Aesthetic Appeal of the Property

Your property isn’t just your place of residence. In this day and age, your property is also an investment. While you might not have any plans to sell your home in the immediate future, it only makes sense to keep your property looking its absolute best. If the time comes when you do sell it, the outdoor fireplace will surely add significant value to your home.

It won’t just be homebuyers that appreciate the fireplace, though. You, your family, and guests will surely enjoy this attractive hardscape feature, too. You’ll feel more inclined to spend time outdoors because of the added ambiance, and you’ll be eager to show the new feature to your guests.

Say Bye-Bye to Bugs

It is no secret that mosquitos and other unwelcome insects are not fans of wood-burning fires. They steer clear of the smoke and the heat source, making your backyard area all the more welcoming of a place for guests and family. Everyone will love sitting outside once they realize the bugs are out of sight.

Fireplace Construction Consultations

Let’s Get Started

From the outset, our contractors are a thorough and client-focused bunch. We seek not just to tell, but to show our clients what we can do during no-obligation consultations. We consider the consultation sessions to be one of the most important aspects of the entire process. We start working for you at the point of the first consult, and we don’t stop until we’ve constructed the fireplace to perfection.

Book an appointment with us, and we’ll send a qualified, knowledgeable contractor to your front door. We’ll bring stone samples with us, too, to give you a realistic idea of what your final fireplace will look like. Keeping strictly within your target budget, our contractors will explain our design-build process from start to finish, addressing all your questions and concerns along the way. We’ll talk about permits, timelines, future maintenance needs, and everything else you need to know to make an informed decision.

By the end of our visit, we’ll have all the information we need to put together a written cost estimate for your consideration. From there, you hold all the cards. You can decide if our crew is the best fit for your project.

Professional Fireplace Installation

The caliber of your outdoor fireplace doesn’t rest upon the stone and brick used to construct it. If you want a top-tier outdoor fireplace that promises years of enjoyment, you need to work with a top-tier team of stone contractors. That is where we come in. We understand stonework, masonry, and the fundamentals of fireplace construction.

Our reputation is built on the quality of our stonework, and you can bet that your new fireplace will live up to our name. As stonework specialists, our installation strategy is one of organization, efficiency, and precision. Once your design plans are finalized, our crews will work like a well-oiled machine to make your design materialize in a timely fashion. We consistently honor our time commitments and pledge a stress-free installation experience. Every one of our contractors on-site will be respectful, conscientious, and a consummate professional from beginning to end.

You’ll be roasting hot dogs and s’mores around the fire before you know it.

Promising Safety

Fireplaces are different than other outdoor features—and for obvious reasons. As a rule, we only install fireplaces at a minimum distance of five feet from the closest seating area. This protects furniture from catching fire or melting against the heat source. Working with us ensures you get a code-compliant fireplace that does not upset your insurance carriers. We take the safe route every time.

Quick Turnarounds on Construction

There are a lot of steps to the outdoor fireplace construction process. In some cases, we might need to lay a secure foundation to accommodate the fireplace’s brickwork. The fireplace also needs a system that can redirect the smoke away from guests and the rest of your home. While these steps might slow some builders down, we carry out these steps with ease. We owe our success to our emphasis on planning and preliminary groundwork. Our methodical approach saves time every time.

Investing in an Outdoor Fireplace

Although Tampa Bay is pretty hot for most of the year, the temperatures do drop off a bit during winter. This might come as a surprise to our neighbors up north, but as everyone here knows, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing sweaters and jackets during December and January. And there’s nothing better during those cooler months than hanging out with friends and family, sitting around a fire.

Contemporary Stone Work, LLC designs and builds outdoor fireplaces in Tampa Bay. Built using high-quality stone, our sturdy outdoor fireplaces designed to last. Year after year, you’ll be able to warm up by sitting around the fireplace in your backyard. And with a range of fireplace designs perfect for any taste, we’re sure you’ll be happy with the overall look and feel of your backyard fireplace.

What’s the Difference Between a Fire Pit and an Outdoor Fireplace?

The main difference is that fire pits are open to the sky, and outdoor fireplaces are not. Where fire pits are aimed at containing a fire within a low (usually) circular wall made of either stone or metal, outdoor fireplaces have actual chimneys built above the fire pit. The chimney keeps the ash and lit embers from blowing out of the fire and landing on nearby houses or trees. It also aims the smoke up and away from everyone that’s sitting around the fire. You get all the warmth and beauty of the fire, without any downsides.

Are Outdoor Fireplaces Safe?

The short answer is yes. Outdoor fireplaces are perfect for containing wood fires and keeping the burning embers where they can’t light anything else on fire. When we install outdoor fireplaces in Tampa Bay, we make sure to follow every building code to the letter. That means building the chimney to the appropriate height, building it away from your neighbor’s property, and away from your house.

Outdoor fireplaces are the safest way to enjoy an outdoor fire.

How Much do Outdoor Fireplaces Cost?

Because of the range of technical skills necessary for building stone fireplaces, they can cost anywhere in the range of $2,000 to $20,000. Depending on the size and complexity of the design, the price can go up. But what you spend on design and construction costs, you get back in quality, durability, and charm. Stone is a beautiful and often difficult material to work with. To get an accurate sense of the price, your best bet is to give Contemporary Stone Work, LLC a call to set up a consultation. We’ll be able to go through a range of options so that you can choose the price point that works for your budget.

Are Outdoor Fireplaces Worth It?

We love them, and our customers do too. Think of it this way: how much value do you put into quiet evenings spent talking to friends and family? For many people, this is the most important thing in life. An outdoor fireplace will provide the space where those kinds of meaningful memories can be created.
