The longevity of an outdoor kitchen is dependent on the quality of the materials used, the quality of the workmanship in building and installation, and the diligence of the maintenance. If everything is done well, you can expect your outdoor kitchen to last 10 years or more. Some have lasted much longer than that. At Backyard Works, we build and install every outdoor kitchen in Harbeson, Delaware, with the best quality of materials and installation techniques to ensure your outdoor kitchen lasts as long as possible.

It is agreed upon by the majority of real estate experts that an outdoor kitchen adds value to your home and increases the selling price. It has been reported that outdoor kitchens nationally have been found to return 100% to 200% of the improvement cost. While an outdoor kitchen will increase your home value, it won’t necessarily appeal to everyone. Rather than doing it for resale value, most homeowners have outdoor kitchens built so that they can enjoy the outdoor living space themselves.

One of the best ways to protect your outdoor kitchen is to add a roof, pergola, or other type of overhead covering to protect it from the Harbeson, Delaware, weather. It’s also a good idea to seal and polish the external surfaces of your outdoor kitchen such as countertops, cabinets, appliances, etc. Similar to an indoor kitchen, regular cleaning and additional routine maintenance is required to keep your outdoor kitchen in good shape.

While it’s possible to use your Harbeson, Delaware, outdoor kitchen all year round, if you aren’t planning to cook outside during the winter months then taking steps to winterize your outdoor kitchen is recommended. That includes tasks such as shutting off water lines and draining faucets; turning off the gas line; cleaning and polishing stainless steel; thoroughly cleaning cabinets, countertops, and the sink; and unplugging, emptying, and cleaning your refrigerator. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions related to what you have in your particular outdoor kitchen. Backyard Works can help you with specific tips for your outdoor kitchen after we complete the installation.

The options are seemingly endless for what you can include in your Harbeson, Delaware, outdoor kitchen. Only including the components that you’ll actually use makes the most sense. For example, an authentic wood-fired pizza oven is a wonderful addition to an outdoor kitchen, but only if your family will be making pizza at home. If not, choose from the many other amazing additions you can enjoy in your outdoor kitchen. Some popular outdoor kitchen elements to include a grill, smoker, cooktop, side burners, a griddle, an oven, warming drawers, a sink, a garbage disposal, dishwasher, refrigerator, wine refrigerator, countertop prep space, bar seating, lighting, and ceiling fans. The list goes on and on, and your outdoor kitchen can include whatever you want or need to enjoy cooking and entertaining outdoors. If you can dream it, Backyard Works can probably make it happen!
