Need help with my countertops for an outdoor kitchen

We live in Colorado and are trying to pick countertops for our outdoor kitchen. I love the super white granite! Does anyone have any experience with this color outside?

I recall helping make some benches for a patio/grill area a couple of years ago in which very pale granite was used. It looked nice, but it had some bluish blotches. I think my client said they came from birds which had been eating the elderberries from the neighbors hedge. Another client had some very light marble benches, and we created the outdoor table for them. They were not sure which critter had left the reddish blotches on their benches, but had not been able to get them out. I guess whatever the light colored material is, make sure you can seal it very well, so that the wildlife cannot stain it?

Super White is a quarzite, not a marble or granite, so you should have no problems with it outside. I would just recommend a waterproof cover for off seasons and sealing it every year, although it would probably be fine without.

Stone and Cottonwood, if that ever happens again, try using Mangia Macchia sooner than later. It might help. http://www.granitecitytool.com/mangia-macchia-stain-remover
