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.
