Beauty And Uniqueness

Marble, Granite and Quartz slabs can become so ubiquitous due to the volume of the same color, quality, and finish of stone that can be quarried from any one location. Soapstone on the other hand is so incredibly unique that no 2 slabs are ever the same.

Colors vary greatly, but depend largely on where the soapstone comes from. Colors vary from greens to grays,and everything in between. “Veining” usually reserved for the finest marbles, are common in Soapstone countertops. Because the slab color is a natural process doesn’t mean you’re powerless to personalize it – mineral oils can be applied to darken or lighten the tones, or you can go “Au Naturel”. Browse our slab gallery below for more details.

Soapstone is ideal for many styles of homes from older traditional, or cottage style homes, to high end luxury homes – Soapstone appeals to the most discerning tastes.

Cost Effectiveness

Yes Soapstone slabs are more expensive than other natural stone countertops. However, there can be substantial savings in sure longevity of Soapstone, and the fact that it just never goes out of style. These make a strong case for the cost effectiveness and long-term value of Soapstone over alternatives.

Longevity and Durability

It’s not uncommon to hear of Soapstone being passed on from one generation to the next, lasting many generations in some cases. And why not – if it does get scratched or dented you can easily sand these out. In fact, this is one of the most unique things about Soapstone. Other countertop surfaces from stainless steel, man-made materials, or even other natural stones would all require costly replacements should you scratch or dent them, not so with Soapstone!

If you know anyone who has worked with a Soapstone slab, then likely you know how much they loved it.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

The office staff was fabulous and very professional. The installation was fabulous, on time, great workmanship, and able to handle challenging custom work. Favorite things about soapstone is the look, the finish, and the fact that it doesn’t react with red wine, tomatoes, etc. No problems with the soapstone. Maintenance is easy with the walnut oil canuba wax. Absolutely would recommend soapstone to our friends and Soapstone Werks! We love the look and durability of our new soapstone counters. The installation is perfect. We had a challenge because we have a 1914 original craftsman kitchen, and when Greg and his team replaced the old countertops, there were many custom cuts needed to fit the original cabinets, including curves and a custom backsplash. The job is perfection, the soapstone looks like it could have been original with the house. Soapstone werks also installed matching soapstone to our fireplace hearth. It’s beautiful, a perfect installation, and it looks like it is original to our 1914 home. We looked at four other soapstone companies and decided to go with Soapstone Werks because of their unique selection of soapstone, their professionalism, and their friendly attitude. Many thanks to Greg, Wendy, and their team.
