Are you looking to add a distinct, durable element to your home? Take a look at our soapstone installation services and materials today!
This completely natural surface has a lot of distinctive benefits that you won’t find in rivals such as marble, quartz and granite. Soapstone tends to be light gray in appearance and takes on a darker appearance with aging, as it goes through an oxidation process. Sealing with mineral oil is recommended every few weeks for the first year to enhance the oxidation process.
It can be used for kitchen countertops and sinks and is sometimes used for fireplace surrounds because of its ability to distribute heat evenly. When it comes to any soapstone countertops, no 2 slabs are ever the same. The one that you have decorating your kitchen will never be duplicated in any other home. Your countertop will become a personal treasure and will grow on you as it ages.
With soapstone you don’t have to worry about taking a pot from the stove and putting it right onto the counter. This stone won’t get damaged from heat and doesn’t stain. It’s a lot easier to cook with a soapstone countertop since you won’t have to worry about spilling things or placing hot items on it. Soapstone is also non-porous so it will never absorb liquids. Spilling a glass of red wine on the counter is not a problem and any acidic liquids can be wiped right off as well.
