Free delivery is not included with the purchase of a firepit. However CiM will coordinate shipping for an additional charge. The weight of the units vary, and the shipping costs will reflect that. Include your address in your order to recieve a delivery quote.

Do firepits use a lot of energy?

The energy usage varies on how often the unit is being used, and at what level the firepit is on. Minimal increases in gas charges have been reported from past clients.

What is the firepit made from?

Each firepit is built with an aluminum frame for a strong, light weight and rust-free structure. The frame is clad with cement board, and the stone is adhered using crack proof thinset mortar. The stone or concrete tops are custom made for each unit, and most are a one piece construction subject to material allowances.

The gas insert by Crystal Fire Plus, and key valve must be installed by a licensed gas fitter.
