Fire Pit on a Patio
Everyone knows that heat rises. So why worry about heat underneath a fire pit. Heat does not just rise of course; it also radiates, and over time, it can build up. So when the question comes up of whether it is safe to use a fire pit on a patio, the quick answer is yes, absolutely. It is safe… for you, but maybe not for the patio. I am not an expert on the subject of concrete and paving blocks, but I have been reading up on it. What can happen is that the concrete can eventually spall and crack. Spall means break up into little pieces. It might not happen. There are a lot of variables. If you use a fire pit once or twice on your patio on a cool day, you probably won't have a problem.
