Why is soapstone a great choice for a countertop? Because of its properties!

Soapstone is a metamorphic rock that is non-porous, non-absorbent, very dense, anti-bacterial, chemically inert, impervious to staining, and can handle 2000-3000 degrees of heat. Soapstone can retain cold temperatures as well. That is why soapstone is great for whiskey stones or cheese plates. Because of soapstone’s unique properties, soapstone has been a favorite for centuries. Soapstone is easy to care for and clean. This stone has a sturdy surface that is almost impossible to hurt. Soapstone countertops are a great choice for so many reasons but those are just a few!

The most common misconception about soapstone is that it is like soap. This is false because the type of soapstone used for countertops is hard! People call it soapstone because of its soapy feel. The stone is soft and smooth to the touch like soap. Soapstone has actually been used for countertops for centuries! Soapstone was used in chemistry labs because it is chemically inert.

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.
