As a stone sculptor, stone fabricator, and experienced tile setter, Greg Bergmann observed a growing interest in Soapstone in California. Greg began importing soapstone slabs for use by craftsmen wanting to install stone counters themselves. As the interest and demand grew, Greg realized there was a need for a supply of high quality soapstone and it’s installation. In 2004 Greg and his wife Wendy created Soapstone West. A few months later that year they assembled a team with Greg as the licensed general and specialty contractor for the company.
In 2008 Greg and Wendy made the decision to rebrand as Soapstone Werks, furthering their passion for the soapstone medium. Their vision was clear: provide excellent high quality soapstone, professional installation, offering custom sink and other specialty projects built with an artistic approach that can be incorporated into the practical applications of soapstone.

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.
