It is a unique stone and has to be handled correctly in order for it to perform at its best.
We can also cut slabs for the “Do It Your Selfers” Send us your cut list and we will have it ready for pick up or delivery. (slabs will have saw cut edges. dimensions can be squares or rectangles only) Longer lengths may need to be cut in half.
Soapstone firebrick comes in three standard sizes. 9″ x 4.5″ x 2.5″, 9 x 4.5″ x 1.25″, 9″ x 2.25″ x 1.25″. Custom sizes are also available.
Fabricate to customer provided details/template
If you are handy and would like to do your own measuring or templating, it’s an option. Just bring in your details about the job, we will go over it with you to make sure your template/details will work. When we get finished your countertop will be ready for install. We will put on the edge profile, do your sink cut outs(if necessary) and prepare your seam(seams..if necessary) and have it ready for pick up.
Philadelphia Soapstone manufactures custom Soapstone sinks right here in our Blackwood NJ facility. Our standard construction on the sinks are Tongue and groove(mitered) and epoxied together. The sink bottoms are pitched to a drain hole located at the sink center. It is most important the sink is fabricated this way. If sinks are constructed with a “Butt” or “Lapp” joint they will not last.
We also offer carved block sinks. This type of sink is carved from a solid block of soapstone. There are no seams or sharp inside corners. The inside corners of the sink have a radius(curve) for easy cleaning.
