An Overview On Firewood Racks

There’s nothing that warms like a roaring fire, and to keep it going plenty of wood is needed. Buying wood is easy, but it needs to be stored and cared for properly in order to maintain its utility. The best starting point is a quality firewood rack, which can be designed for indoor use, outdoor use or both.

You first need to decide where you will keep the rack and purchase one that is the correct size for both your space and the amount of wood you’ll need. Typically, product descriptions include the dimensions of a wood rack, which you can compare to your available space. Also consider how much wood you will be storing. Most racks can hold half a cord; you may require a large one or more than one rack.

For indoor firewood racks, choose one that works well with your décor. Outside racks can go near the firepit, in the corner of a deck or on either side of your front door. You can purchase racks with covers to protect your wood from moisture. Also check to see how much it weighs, as you may need someone to help you carry it around.

A quality firewood rack will have good airflow, which draws moisture out of the logs and allows it to slowly evaporate. In time, the wood will get dry and seasoned, which makes for better fires. Experts do not recommend wood or plastic racks, since they do allow for air circulation and are not waterproof.

The Firewood Rack Buying Guide

  • Check to see if the firewood rack sits up off the ground. If it is too close to the ground, the wood can get wet, especially if it rains or snows.
  • Insect infestation is another possibility if the rack is on the ground.
  • Firewood rack covers are usually sold separately but are necessary if the wood is being stored outside.
  • Solid metal racks that are treated to prevent rust usually work best. They are also stronger than many other racks and are also waterproof.
