Using Granite Countertops for Outdoor Kitchens
If you plan on using granite or marble, or any other natural stone material, it is important to know some important tips about outdoor kitchens and countertops. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that, although these stones are in their “natural environment,” outdoor kitchen countertops require regular maintenance and upkeep.
Materials like granite are non-absorbent, meaning that you won’t have to worry about rain. However, it is always important to wash down your countertops with a hose every so often to remove dust, dirt, food spills, and other bits of grime.
Another method to better maintain outdoor countertops is to keep them covered when not using them. Keeping your granites out of direct sunlight in the Texas summer can also help prolong the life and beauty of your outdoor granite countertops.
