Discussion Board

Find answers to commonly asked customer questions about this countertop material

Q: What are soapstone countertops made of?

A: Soapstone countertops are made from natural metamorphic rock composed mainly of talc, which gives it a soft, soapy feel, along with other minerals like chlorite, magnesite, and dolomite. This composition makes soapstone durable and heat-resistant.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: Do soapstone countertops require sealing?

A: No, soapstone countertops do not require sealing because they are non-porous. However, many people choose to apply mineral oil to enhance the natural darkening process and maintain an even appearance.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: How do soapstone countertops compare to granite countertops?

A: Soapstone is softer and more prone to scratching than granite but can be easily repaired with sanding. Unlike granite, soapstone is non-porous and does not require sealing. It also offers a unique, matte finish and develops a natural patina over time.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: Can soapstone countertops withstand heat?

A: Yes, soapstone countertops are highly heat-resistant and can withstand direct contact with hot pots and pans without damage. This makes them an excellent choice for kitchen countertops.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: What should I do if my soapstone countertop chips or scratches?

A: Soapstone is softer than other countertop materials and can scratch more easily. Minor scratches can be buffed out with sandpaper, and deeper scratches or chips can be filled with epoxy. Regular maintenance with mineral oil can help mask small scratches.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: Are soapstone countertops scratch-resistant?

A: Soapstone is not as scratch-resistant as harder stones like granite or quartzite. However, its softer nature allows for easy repair of scratches with simple sanding and oiling.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: How should I clean and maintain soapstone countertops?

A: Clean soapstone countertops with mild dish soap and warm water using a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or pads, as they can scratch the surface. Applying mineral oil periodically can help maintain its appearance and enhance the natural darkening process.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: Can soapstone countertops be used outdoors?

A: Yes, soapstone countertops can be used outdoors as they are weather-resistant and can withstand various environmental conditions. They do not fade or degrade under sunlight and can handle temperature fluctuations well.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: How do soapstone countertops compare to marble countertops?

A: Soapstone is more resistant to staining and etching than marble because it is non-porous. While both stones offer a unique, natural look, soapstone has a softer, warmer feel and develops a patina over time, whereas marble requires more maintenance to prevent staining and etching.

By CountertopSmart Product Expert

Q: Are soapstone countertops environmentally friendly?

A: Soapstone countertops are considered environmentally friendly as they are made from natural stone and require minimal processing. The mining process has a relatively low environmental impact, and soapstone is often sourced locally or regionally, reducing transportation emissions.
