Whether you want a fire pit or a fireplace, either structure can enhance your home and your entertaining space. During the summer months, nothing beats roasting marshmallows and sharing stories around a roaring fire. Homeowners can realize a 67 percent return on investment. Fire features with a gas burner and patio area cost an average of $6,000 to construct. You’ll recoup about $4,000 when you sell your home, according to the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) and National Association of Landscape Professionals.
