How Much Does a Paver Fire Pit Cost?

What's under our Fire Pits
Fire pits are a quick and easy add-on to make your project beautiful. Most of the time we can just build it directly over your patio pavers. Other times, if you want it cut into the patio we will install it over a small concrete footing. Whether we are building a round, square, wood burning or gas fire pit we always ensure we install to the manufacture specs. For example, ensuring gas fire pits are ventilated, or wood burning has the proper heat protection on the block.
Location, Location, Location
Step 1 is strategically choosing a location for your fire pit. A Lot goes into choosing the right spot, which you can go over with on your free consultation when getting an estimate. You must keep into consideration, all though the fire pit itself is only about 3-4 ft in diameter, you will need a minimum of a 100 square feet area around it (10ft x 10ft) to ensure a comfortable place to hang out around. Also, trying to avoid trees and putting it not too close but not too far from your home.
Our most common practice is to build the fire pit on top of the pavers. However some clients choose to have it cut in, in this scenario we will mix a small concrete footing for the fire pit to sit on and then add a border around the bottom (this is a more costly addition due to the time and labor it takes). Each course is glued together. After the fire pit is built we install a metal ring to help protect the blocks from the heat, which can cause them to crack.
The fire pit is then filled with sand to the bottom of the ring and is used as a bed to place your logs on and keep the fire elevated. Another way to dress up your fire pit is adding caps to the top, this will raise the price due to more material and labor.

What AP Customers Are Saying
I have used Affordable Patio three times now for three different projects and I have always been happy with their service. Dealing with James and Kristina in the office is a pleasure. The entire project is thoroughly planned out and executed appropriately. I highly recommend this company. Thanks again AP for all your help!!!
You guys killed it. Thanks for rocking out the back patio. We’re super excited to make new memories. Thanks for the great work guys
We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. James, Kristina, and the entire crew were great to work with!! We will have them back for more projects for sure!!
Working with James Gio Kristina and evo plus his team was an awesome experience. As somone in the industry I was truly impressed and couldn’t believe the standard held by precision. Would recommend 10/10!! Super knowledgeable and worth every penny! felt better than family!!
I just had my patio done and from start to finish everything went amazing. From the moment they came for an estimate, to the moment they finished, everything went smoothly. All the workers were professional and worked so fast. There were no hidden costs, no surprises. Kristina in the office keeps you informed step by step from the point they send the estimate, selecting the brick, start of the project and even throughout the project. She even sent photos of different color combinations as I was indecisive at first. Can't wait to enjoy my backyard with family and friends this summer. Will definitely be using them for future projects to come. Home projects can be stressful and feel like a chore between companies not showing up for estimates, hidden costs, poor workmanship, etc. That was not the case with James, Kristina and the rest of the crew. They made it feel like a breeze!
Affordable Patio is an amazing company! From the estimate, to the install and the clean up. We went online and more or less got a price on our own. We then scheduled an appointment with James, Kristina answered the phone and all of our questions, she’s was polite, knowledgeable and courteous! James came to give us an estimate and was able to figure out a way for us to get a fire pit! We always dreamed of a fire pit! When the install was getting done, the crew was courteous and walked us threw every step and cleaned up like we never had any work done! 5 ⭐️ I love them and recommend them to everyone!
From the initial email that I sent for a quote, to the meeting with James, to the final finished project, I have nothing but excellent things to say about this company. It was an absolute pleasure working with Kristina throughout this whole process. She was very attentive and very quick with responses and questions that I had. Joe and his crew did beautiful work on my patio. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a backyard transformation.
Recently had a patio done 18x 35 in size . The crew that came was one of the best that I have seen . They all worked as a team . The lead guy joe was great , explained every detail that was going to happen . They worked together and completed the job in a day and a half . The bob cat did rip up some grass but they brought in top soil and leveled. the lawn to repair the damage . Clean up was just as good . The garbage was placed in bags , removed the dirt from the driveway . Filled the track marks with top soil . Did a great job and would use them again . The entire process was painless .
James and Kristina were very helpful and got the job done very quickly. My patio came out great! I would highly recommend them.
James, Kristina and their work crew did an amazing job. They not only did our backyard they also did stone work on the front of our home and of course our front porch. The crew always cleaned up after their work day.. We couldn't be happier with how our home turned out!
