San Diego Soapstone

Soapstone Werks is your San Diego Soapstone Counter top provider! We have many years of experience in fabricating and installing soapstone counter tops. Soapstone is a very unique counter top material that you  need to very familiar with in order to fabricate and install it.

What makes soapstone different? For a start, it is a metamorphic rock. Granite and many other counter top materials are igneous rocks. Soapstone does not harbor mold or bacteria because it is non-porous. Soapstone will not stain, so do not worry about being careful with wine or lemon juice. Marble can easily stain which gives it a very rustic feel but this is a common complaint from marble. Soapstone is similar to marble only because they both have a coldness factor that keeps dough, cheese, whatever cold for hours. This factor in soapstone is why we make whiskey stones and cheese plates out of it. With granite and marble do not put anything from the oven directly on the stone! They cannot handle that much heat. Only a few hundred degrees of heat. On the other hand, this is something that makes soapstone unique. Soapstone can handle a few thousand degrees of heat! It is a metamorphic rock and so you will never have to worry about the stone cracking if you put something straight from the oven on it. This is why we are able to use soapstone for fireplaces and barbecues. The durability of soapstone is what helps make soapstone unique from any other natural stone! There are pros and cons to every stone but these are just a few reasons why soapstone is different from the rest.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

The team at Soapstone Werks were very helpful . It was obvious that they too are in love with this stone and it’s ‘personality’. We couldn’t be more pleased with the end results and show it off every chance we get. Worth every penny. The office staff was very helpful and friendly and the installation was very professional. One of our favorite things about soapstone is the rustic look and the veins.
