Soapstone Countertops Ottawa

If you had your eyes set on soapstone countertops, or you’d like to explore alternate countertop materials such as marble, quartz, or quartzite countertops from Cambria, we can help you make an informed decision.

Beauty & Charm

An absolutely beautiful organic-looking stone, soapstone is soft to the touch and creates a beautiful patina as it ages. This is done by rubbing it with mineral oil, which gives the stone a lovely sheen. Soapstone is a naturally occurring material typically sourced from the Appalachian mountain range, Brazil and Finland. It is a soft stone prone to etching and scratching, but minor scratches can be fixed with light honing. Contact us prior to fixing any scratches to ensure it is done correctly.

Similar to granite, it is a stone naturally quarried in mines and it also called steatite. Before, this material was commonly used by sculptors because of its naturally soft composition. This softness is due to the presence of talc.

Soapstone countertops have similar hardness with marble and can be harder due to the incorporation of quartz.  With this, it can effectively withstand the harsh conditions of a kitchen countertop.
