An outdoor countertop needs to be durable, weather-resistant, and beautiful. Outdoor countertops will be exposed to natural elements such as UV rays, heat, humidity, rain, etc. Therefore, durable and weatherproof outdoor countertop materials are of the utmost importance. Other considerations are material strength and resistance to spills, staining and frequent use.
Three of the best choices for your outdoor kitchen countertops are stone, concrete, and tile. Stone, concrete, and tile are designed to stand up to the outdoor elements and use. It’s always a good idea to check with the manufacturer before installing. The last thing you want to do is install a countertop material, only to find that it’s made for interior use only. We wouldn’t want your beautiful countertop to fade or deteriorate too quickly. Durable and protective materials can be costlier in the initial construction process, but these costs up front will end up saving you in the long run.
