Most of the time when we think of countertops, we picture them in a kitchen or a bathroom. However, did you know that many of our clients actually ask for countertops to go outside? Whether you have an outdoor kitchen, a prep station for your built-in grill, or a sink area by your pool, outdoor countertops are great for a number of uses.

Granite countertops are ideal for the outdoors because of their durability. However, even though they’re really tough, they still need some extra protection from the elements of Mother Nature. It’s a good idea to cover your countertops with some sort of shelter, overhang, or umbrella; this largely protects them from damaging sun rays, sleet, and falling limbs. However, even with a roof/overhang, it’s still a good idea to cover your countertops, especially during the winter months when snow and ice can wreak havoc on unprotected countertops.

Granite countertops should be sealed annually to keep them looking great and to protect them from damage. This is especially important when it comes to your outdoor countertops. 

Before and after each use, it’s a good idea to clean your outdoor countertops as they can be exposed to a number of stains and germs. Use a non-abrasive cleaner to clean your countertops; often, warm water and soap will do the trick.

If you have an outside space that you’d like to enhance with beautiful countertops, give us a call at Artisans of Stone in Roanoke, VA.
