Quartz Outdoor Kitchens

If your outdoor plans include a kitchen area, quartz countertops are a tough surface that can be up to 7 times stronger than granite. They’re perfect for outdoor use that doesn’t involve direct sun and can provide a custom, finished look to your entertaining.

If you haven’t looked at the many varieties of Quartz patterns and colors that are now available, you will probably be surprised at home versatile this engineered stone product has become.

Quartz is made from a blend of 93% quartzite stone that is blended artistically with resin and colored pigments - the result is a substance that is both attractive in any setting, and really durable.

Curious about using quartz countertops for your outdoor space? Let's talk about some of the common questions that our customers ask.


Can I Put Hot Pots On Quartz?

Quartz countertops can take a lot of heat and abuse, but if you’re pulling a pot or other cooking pieces directly out of the flames, you’ll need to use a trivet or similar. Warm items - no problem.

Otherwise, you’ll love the way that Quartz cleans up after you’ve been cooking anything messy. The surface repels anything moist, and you’ll be able to wipe it down with ease, as well as keep it sanitary.

Quartz is as easy to wipe down as glass, without worrying about regular sealing like granite.

Is Quartz Tough Enough for Outdoor Use?

Quartz is even stronger than granite. The whole manufacturing process produces a countertop that provides a lot of tensile strength for its weight. In addition, just remember that the main ingredient of this engineered stone is quartzite.

Quartz, on its own, measures at a 7 on Moh's Hardness Scale for minerals - which is harder than either steel or titanium. It's a combination of technology and nature that produces a truly amazing product.


Will Condiments Stain Quartz?

Spill barbecue sauce? Maybe the kids overdo it with the mustard and ketchup sometimes? Quartz isn't susceptible to staining like other countertop surfaces.

Even outdoors, you can keep the Quartz countertops on your patio looking great and staying clean without a lot of effort. The naturally sealed surface can be wiped clean with water and a sponge or towel.

If there are any bigger spills or messes, it’s also easy to take care of. The finished surface should come clean with any non-abrasive cleaner. It’s likely to be one of the easiest surfaces that you’ll need to maintain, making it perfect for outdoor use.


Will Quartz Work with My Design?

Like other countertops, Quartz is cut to fit your custom measurements. We will come to take measurements, including any cut-outs or special needs, and then return to install your countertops.

Many outdoor kitchen designs include sinks, faucets, refrigerators, keg taps, and built-in grills. When measuring your countertops, all of these details need to be taken into account to avoid issues on installation day.


Does Quartz Stand Up to Rain and Snow?

Quartz countertops are great for any area that involves moisture or spills, just like your outdoor kitchen. You won’t have to worry about grout mildewing, water soaking in and staining, and spills breeding bacteria.

Engineered stone is naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal, and can handle all kinds of moisture. The waterproof qualities are especially suited for areas around sinks or faucets where water might tend to pool up.

You won't need to worry about your quartz countertops standing up to freezing cold temperatures or snow either. The manufacturing process and elements that make up quartz are not affected by the frigid cold of New England winters.
