Granite Outdoor Kitchens

Planning the right outdoor kitchen features can be almost as hard as updating your regular kitchen decor.

Going with granite as your outdoor kitchen countertop material is as natural as - well, the great outdoors!


How can granite work for your own space? Let’s compare it to one of the most common materials chosen for outdoor kitchens - stainless steel.

Granite vs Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is certainly a popular choice for outdoor cooking, but let’s examine why granite can be even better. Stainless has some unavoidable issues that can be overcome when you’re using natural stone.


Stainless Steel Dents Easily

Yes, stainless steel is sleek, but it's also prone to dents and creases when accidents happen - and they always do, outdoors. Once they’ve been dinged or bent, there’s not a lot you can do to fix them - it’s a little like having a dent in your car.

Granite won’t dent, bend, or crease - it’s hard as stone, after all!


Stainless Steel Loses its Shine

True story - it’s impossible to keep outdoor stainless steel looking new. The finish eventually succumbs to all the scratches and abrasions - even with polishing, it will never look the same.


Does Granite Hold Up Outdoors?

Granite is UV-resistant, and won’t fade or break down in the sunlight. When you think about how granite was originally used for exterior stone cladding and city street curbs, you begin to realize just how tough and weather resistant it really is!

When you combine granite with other stones and surfaces frequently used outdoors, it blends beautifully and will stand up to the weather conditions.


Maintaining Granite When Used Outdoors

You can relax with granite in your outdoor kitchen. As a stone, you can literally hose it down, if necessary. It’s water-resistant, and the low porosity makes it anti-bacterial, as well as mold and mildew-resistant.

In other words - you’re not likely to find anything staining or growing on your outdoor granite countertops. Just keep them sealed regularly.

STONETECH® BulletProof® Sealer is the sealer we recommend and use ourselves, but there are plenty of options available at your local home improvement stores. Do not implicitly trust 15-year or lifetime sealers. It's best done yearly to maintain a durable protection layer against the elements. If you're not a DIY'er, we will come to your house and seal the surfaces for you.
