Specialty Stone

There are many benefits to choosing a specialty stone. These benefits include unique patterns and colors, along with scratch, stain and heat resistance. Since each slab is hand picked by the customer, material satisfaction is guaranteed. Stop in to our location to discuss the benefits of selecting these materials. Due to the uniqueness of these materials, they tend to be higher priced compared to other products.

Soapstone has a unique soft and warm feel compared to other stones. Another unique feature of this stone is that it only comes in a matte(non-glossy) finish. This material is also extremely heat resistant. Although soapstone has many benefits, it is a softer stone which means it will scratch easily. However, scratches can be hidden if you wax the area or use mineral oil on it. Soapstone is usually a light gray or greenish blue color but becomes darker with age and when you use oils on it. Sealing the top with mineral oil is recommended every few weeks for the first year to enhance the oxidation process.
