Soapstone in the Science lab?

For many people their main acquaintance with soapstone derives from a high-school science lab top or floor.  Because soapstone is chemically inert, chemicals of any kind will not hurt or even leave a mark on the counter-top.  The high density makes this stone impervious to stains and bacteria.  Is it any wonder that more and more people are turning back to historical soapstone for their counter-top surface of choice?  Add elegant beauty to the mix and you have a winner in counter-top material.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

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.
