Carpinteria, California (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Brent Freitas, owner of Eye of the Day Garden Center in Carpinteria in SoCal, was a featured expert on NewHomeSource.com, a widely trafficked site that informs new homebuyers and industry specialists about available new homes. As an expert, he issued tips of the trade about the types of materials outdoor enthusiasts should use for fire pits and other heat-containing vessels.
The article on NewHomeSource.com, “Turn Up the Heat in Your Patio or Yard,” by Sarah Kinbar, discussed how to improve an outdoor backyard space to make it more enjoyable for the winter. Ideas included adding amenities like a whirlpool bath with a fire element for a spa-like space, two-sided gas fireplace, and rollable electric heating unit.
Near the end of the article, Freitas weighs in with important safety advice: consider the materials a fire pit is made of before actually using it. In particular, he explains that heat can wear on the material of any vessel that contains heat, and it’s therefore important to choose a pit or container that’s made of high-quality clay or concrete. Should less durable materials or merely decorative pots be used, potential fire hazards and fires could occur as pits begin to break down, crack, and even explode. To help prevent this, Freitas suggests checking labels of materials to make sure they’re suitable for fire, as well as using heat resistant paints.
As the owner of one of the leading Italian and Greek terracotta pottery distributors, Freitas is an expert in all things pertaining to the garden – whether they contain fire or not –especially with regards to high-end garden pottery, planters, and other decor.
