I am currently renovating the backyard of my home in Toronto and would like to add a countertop to my deck to help with my summer barbecues. I was wondering what the best material for my outdoor countertop would be. I want to make sure it survives the harsh Toronto winter!
Personally, granite would be my choice for an outdoor
kitchen. Granite has been exposed to the
elements for ages, hasn’t it? On the
other hand, some of the most durable statues were sculpted from marble. But marble is much more porous that most
granites and quartzites. For an outdoor
feature, natural stone is paramount.
Make sure your natural stone of choice is properly and often sealed and
it should last a lifetime. Come to see
