How can a natural stone be heat tolerant? Most stones will discolor and crack. Yet Soapstone can take very high levels of heat. So much so that cookware has been made from this stone for centuries. Putting a red hot cooking pot right on your soapstone counter will not harm your counter tops in any way. Soapstone is regularly made into masonry heaters and ovens even now. There is no natural stone found that can take the high levels of heat that soapstone can take. The high density really allows this stone to be very useful in the kitchen, bath, fireplace area and much more. Come to Soapstone Werks and see what Greg has done with this beautiful and versatile stone.
Here's What Our Clients Have To Say
My husband thought that I was a little crazy for going with something different and having two different hard surfaces (we have both granite and soapstone). Now he really likes it and thinks it was a good choice. We love our sink. It is easy maintenance and was built exactly how we wanted it. The office staff at Soapstone Werks was great-they always called back and were easy to talk to. When it came to installation time Greg and the boys were on time, installed quick, and careful about my flooring. My favorite thing about soapstone is that it is so easy to maintain and durable, it always looks good. Soapstone clean-up is easy; I just wipe it with my sponge and I don’t have to worry about streaking or a residue as I do with my granite. I would recommend Soapstone Werks and Soapstone to my friends. I have a friend who has honed black granite, which gives the same look but it is not as durable. She likes the look but would not put it in again.
