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.

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.
