Posted by AdrianRocker on August 3rd, 2013

Those who are not familiar with the importance of a heat resistance plaster in a house are likely to ruin their houses pretty badly. The heat resistant plaster is used as a shield for chimneys and other places where the walls are exposed to extreme heat. The heat resistant plaster helps in protecting house walls from being damaged by extreme temperatures. Moreover, one can also use the heat resistant plaster on cassette fireplaces.

Nowadays, the heat resistant plaster is quite indispensable to those owning a house. The chemical composition of a heat resistant plaster is the key to the functional aid that this material can provide. A modern heat resistant plaster can withstand temperatures of up to 500 degrees Celsius, which is ideal for household applications.

The heat resistant plaster has a smooth finish and it is similar to paints, which ensures that the house walls will never look unappealing. However, they do need coating and it is advisable to hire a professional to do it. Nevertheless, professionals do not charge money because most companies that manufacture any type of heat resistant plaster offer free assistance. 

The heat resistance plaster is meant to be used for modern household applications and is quite efficient, but those that do not trust the safety of such household protection materials, should simply avoid exposing the walls of their house to any damage. In order to do so, they can start by acquiring outdoor ovens that can be used for: baking, grilling, cooking and smoking. Outdoor ovens come with their own interchangeable grill grates and griddle surfaces that are designed for grilling steaks or fish and for baking bread.   

There are also multi-purpose outdoor ovens that use little firewood or charcoal and retain heat for baking and cooking. Their design holds the heat in the firebox where it is needed.

Those that do not have enough money to purchase outdoor ovens can simply build their own outdoor stove in stages, days and specific steps. However, they will need to check local building codes before starting to build. Outdoor ovens are made of materials that can be bought at local hardware or building stores and detailed instructions on building outdoor ovens can br found on websites that specialize in this type of construction. 

Ideally, outdoor ovens are built to a comfortable height and with a roof to protect against natural phenomena. The concrete blocks have to be covered with tile for aesthetic reasons and an outdoor sink and storage space should also be added to the outdoor stove. 

Outdoor ovens also require fire bricks that can reach cooking temperature more quickly than clay due to their density that makes them more efficient at conducting heat.

The last key design element is the firebox size. The firebox should not be too small. It also should not be too large. Only properly sized fireboxes heat up in due time and have improved combustions, thus, producing less smoke.
