Should I use granite slabs for my patio? How difficult is it to maintain?

Until now, after we said goodbye to the wooden patio for various reasons, we mostly thought of concrete stones or porcelain stoneware slabs.

Now the question: how sensitive and demanding are granite slabs in outdoor areas in real life? I've already been told that they need to be impregnated every 1-2 years. But is that enough for a carefree life, or do you still have to avoid every grease stain or splash of red wine because you can never clean them up again? Do I have to clean them out like a maniac every 3 months because otherwise they will rot?

  • You can impregnate them or not. Impregnating the outside is no big deal and will cost you about $30.

Hmmm, we have granite slabs, they look like the picture too. They are natural, they are not impregnated, they are on the outside. We haven't done anything to them yet (after 3 years) and don't even know if anything needs to be done.

If granite slabs, of course don't soak them. It just doesn't make sense. It's a natural product, and that's what it looks like.

Another alternative would be wild slabs with grout: But they are much more expensive to lay.
