Comparing Lava Rocks and Fire Glass

Comparing Lava Rocks and Fire Glass for Fire Pits

Spring 2013 has kicked off to a great start and the photo above is exactly why. Lava rock, although traditionally used, does not have the same quality of look that fire glass does. The several colors, glass mixes and reflected colored glass opens the window to creativity and longevity to your fire pit or fireplace. Homeowners now have the ability to give their fireplace or fire pit complete contrast and design with Glaz Chips Fire Glass. If you question the longevity of both products, lava rock will look weathered and extremely dark over time making it unpleasant just to look at. Glaz Chips has been tempered to withstand the heat of a fireplace and will not cause the color to fade or emit any toxins. A simple rinse or hosing the glass down with water is normally required in an extended period of time. Recommended to be used in natural gas, darker colors can still be used with propane gas and will require additional maintenance. If you’re asking yourself why that is, the chemistry of propane burns dirty and will eventually cause a layer of debris over time. Nonetheless, Glaz Chips Fire Glass offers a completely different look. It’s a look that no one hasn’t seen too often and will definitely catch the attention of your family or guests during the spring or summer time. Whether you have fire glass indoors or outdoors, you’ll be adding a beautiful aesthetic to your existing fireplace.

Does the idea of doing something completely new and different tempt you? Visit the website at www.glazchipsfireglass.com and find incredible prices from the assortment of glass crystals or call toll free (877) 371-1418 if you still have questions.
