Outdoor kitchens have become a popular construction option for many homeowners. Having the ability to cook and grill while remaining outdoors with your guests is a big draw, especially during summer days. Outdoor kitchens extend your available living space while also adding to the value of your home. In order to get the best use out of your outdoor kitchen, consider installing for granite outdoor countertops – they’ll look beautiful, withstand the outdoor elements, and are fairly easy to maintain.
Why Opt For Granite Outdoor Countertops
When building an outdoor kitchen, the most important element is usually the grill, which tends to be the centerpiece. But there are plenty of other features you will have to decide on. One such feature will be the countertops. Regardless of the size of your outdoor kitchen, you will need enough counter space to place dishes and food items, and to prepare and serve the food. You’ll also want countertops that can withstand the outdoor temperatures and harsh weather. The best choice for most families are granite outdoor countertops.
Here are two examples of beautiful granite outdoor countertops installed by Paul Construction. Both customers were thrilled with the outcome.
Why are these eco-friendly countertops such a great option?
- Great Looking. Everyone loves the look of beautiful granite counters. There are also an infinite number of patterns and color combinations when it comes to granite. You can find a very unique piece that fits your personal preferences and color scheme.
- Easy Maintenance. Every countertop suffers spills and smears. Thanks to the great outdoors, your granite outdoor countertops will benefit from regular cleaning from the rain, and the sunshine will dry up any moisture. Otherwise, a general cleaning is as easy as spraying the granite outdoor countertops with the hose and then using a non-abrasive cleaning agent to remove any dirt. To further prevent dirt and debris build up, install a Sunesta retractable awning, supplied and installed by Paul Construction & Awning.
- Long lasting. Granite is known to be very durable because of its ability to withstand the elements. Also, it doesn’t absorb stains or smells as easily as other stone countertops. For best results, select a granite style that doesn’t have too much veining throughout, as the fillers used in the veining can have a negative reaction to the UV rays from the sun.
