Soapstone Has Been Around for a Very Long Time

Many people think that soapstone is something that is new but that is not the case. Soapstone was used for Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. The hall was built between 1732 and 1756. Soapstone was used for the water table, quoins, and column bases. When making the Hall the builders chose soapstone because of soapstone’s durability and unique properties.


Soapstone has been used in many other historical buildings as well.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

We love the look and feel of our soapstone counter-tops in both the bathroom and the kitchen. It has a beautiful “softness” to the texture and fits in formal and informal homes. Knowing that it is non-porous is a huge selling point, so that our kitchen can be as clean as possible. We would absolutely recommend you to our friends and already have.
