I wanted to let you know how pleased my husband and I are with the soapstone.  The craftsmanship is excellent and the installation was expert and professional. Our contractor mentioned that the method you used for templating had a lot to do with the quality of the result. It looks absolutely beautiful! Thank you!


Soapstone is a great product. I love the ease of care and especially the look of my soapstone countertops. I even recently ordered another piece for a table top in the center of the kitchen. Joe and his staff at Philadelphia Soapstone were easy to work with, the service they provided us and the product they provided us were top notch. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering installing soapstone in their home. They have a great staff and their showroom will give you a great preview of what your kitchen can look like.

Soapstone is worry free; scratches and stains are easily remediated and setting something hot on them is not a concern.The wax that Philly Soapstone sells is a great way to spruce them up if you want that look.

As far as the service, Joe was wonderful to work with and responsive to our calls and questions. The countertops were installed in a timely manner with no concerns. He worked well with our contractors on the initial installation, and was helpful in getting us what we needed.  At the present time we are looking for a piece to place on an antique table, and as usual Joe has been very helpful in the process. We can’t wait to get it.

If you want to try soapstone I would highly recommend Philly Soapstone. Great company and product!

We loved everything about Philadelphia Soapstone from the quick response to our first initial request for a quote through installation and beyond.

We shopped for soapstone at two other counter-top vendors; one had virtually no soapstone choice and the other was way overpriced.

When we went to Philadelphia Soapstone showroom, we were amazed at the varieties and types of slabs available, in many different kinds and colors.  We fell in love with our slab at once and Joe let us put our names on it in July when we weren’t going to need it until January.  He also said we could come back in when we were closer to installation to make sure that our slab was still our first choice. (It was!)

Throughout our construction process Joe kept in touch with us and let us know what he would need along the way.  He worked well with our contractor and cabinet maker and was meticulous in his measurements – an aspect that we appreciated as this large installation of soapstone is one of the most visible design elements in our kitchen addition.

The installers from Philadelphia Soapstone were knowledgeable and friendly and in constant communication with the owner. The pieces were installed flawlessly and the seam is virtually invisible. They walked me through the easy care of my soapstone and helped me apply the first coat of wax.

Our home was built in 1921 and we added on a large kitchen and family room this year. The soapstone helps keep the character of our Craftsman-style home and its durability is perfect for our young family.  Granite was never an option.  Everyone who has seen it is awed by it’s beauty – and many of our friends are now contemplating a Soapstone installation, from Joe at Philadelphia Soapstone.

Joe and the team at Philly Soapstone did a wonderful job in our kitchen. Joe was able to answer all of our questions and ensure soapstone was a good choice for us. He had a variety of different slabs in stock to choose from so we could see the different options in person. He was professional and kept all appointments with us. The fabricator is an absolute artist. There is nothing random about the way the veins and speckles are highlighted in our stone! A craftsman with pride in his work! Lastly, the installers were also timely, pleasant, and informative. Overall a great experience with the company and we just love our countertops.

I contacted Joe from Philadelphia Soapstone after I got cold feet about the coloring of the Soapstone slabs I was ordering from another yard. After talking to him on the phone and explaining to him my needs I went to visit his shop. I had a very specific requirement of wanting Soapstone that had tan veins but the stone was still black and had no green hue to it. He had the perfect lot for me. He was the nicest guy and was not pushy at all. Joe spent time answering all my questions and ensuring I was comfortable.

Over the next couple of months we stayed in touch as my kitchen project progressed slower than expected. He was always kind, helpful and very professional. When it was finally time for templating, he came out and made the templates onsite. The template process was like an art form… especially since our island was not completely assembled so Joe had to improvise. Yet everything turned out perfect.

Joe fabricated two sinks for us which are gorgeous, a 12 foot long island, and a very large counter plus a peninsula return with a cooktop. During the install, the installers were friendly and professional. And they modified the cooktop indentations to fix an issue that was changed after templating due to our contractors mistake. You can’t even tell… they did an amazing job.

I would highly recommend Philadelphia Soapstone Company. We love our soapstone countertops. Everyone who sees them says “wow”.

Philadelphia Soapstone was highly professional, extremely neat and accurate and always responded to every call and question. We ordered our slab of black soapstone directly from their yard. They came out , made a template and delivered on time exactly on the date provided. They installed a black soapstone counter on our 4′ x 6′ island and our 84′ counter around our farmhouse sink and stove. They also installed a soapstone hearth and provided a soapstone surround for the fireplace. We could not ask for a better contractor or for better results. We highly recommend Philly Soapstone!

Jeanette Richardson

Philadelphia Soapstone surpassed my expectations (which were extremely high) and delivered the most beautiful countertop I could imagine.  Joe, the owner, was very helpful showing us many different slabs to choose from while giving us lots of information to help us decide.  The installers were punctual, accurate, skilled and tidy and it was pleasant working with them.  I feel very lucky that I picked Philadelphia Soapstone, I smile every time I walk in the kitchen!

We thought Philly Soapstone’s price was very fair. Their service was great and on time! Their installation personnel were efficient and courteous. The selection of quality Soapstone, in inventory, was quite impressive. We are very pleased with the TOTAL EXPERIENCE.

Gus – Bucks County, PA

I had a great experience with Philadelphia Soapstone. Great customer service and a beautiful job. My kitchen is more beautiful than I imagined it could be.

Kelly Silliman

Philadelphia Soapstone templated and installed countertops for my client and did a wonderful job. They are professional and do quality work. I would highly recommend them.

Dilegno Cabinetry

Just had soapstone countertops installed by Philadelphia Soapstone, and we couldn’t be happier! From beginning to end we were completely satisfied in every aspect. We worked with Joe, the owner, who was very accommodating as were the installers. We couldn’t be happier with our kitchen now. We’re so happy we went with soapstone instead of granite. If you’re interested in soapstone countertops, Philadelphia Soapstone is the way to go!

Maureen – Havertown, PA

Philadelphia Soapstone installed counters in my kitchen a little over three years ago. First, the counters are gorgeous. I had done a lot of research, knew what I wanted, and was prepared to travel. I did, in fact, spend long days looking at other offerings in the extended area. The selection was very good at Philadelphia Soapstone, and they were patient with my multiple visits before I finalized my selection.

The installation went as planned, the installers were professional and careful of the cabinets in place. There was one area on the largest counter that I thought was a little rough; it was re-sanded within days of my call. The seams and edges are quite good.

Looks Great. And your guys are super friendly. Feel free to use me as a reference.

I saw the countertop yesterday and it’s beautiful! It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Cindi – Solebury, PA

The soapstone countertops and fireplace surrounds look great-just as I knew they would. Our thanks to you and your crew. Please stop by to see when you are in the area.

Mike and Susan – Avalon, NJ

Just wanted to thank you and your team. We love the countertops and working with you and the rest of our team was a pleasure.

Angela – Philadelphia, PA

Counters look great. Really enjoyed working with you, was all very easy and you have a great crew, those guys were very efficient. Hope I didn’t bug them too much, but curiosity got the best of me a couple of times and I had to wander in and check out the progress. Good luck to you, and appreciate the work.

Rick – Towson, MD

Just wanted to let you know how pleased Moose & I are with our soapstone counters in our new kitchen. They look AWESOME, are so easy to care for & everyone compliments us on them. They are so much better than the overused stereotypical granite. You guys were easy to work with and if we know anyone else doing a kitchen we will certainly recommend you. If you ever want to use us as a reference for a potential customer or someone in our area wants to come look at ours, we are happy to do so. Thanks again.

Kate & Moose – Towson, MD

Thanks, Joe. The counters look really great and your guys did a terrific job! Please thank them again from us. We are very happy with the look and quality. Thanks again!

Dave and Teri – Langhorne, PA

Thanks for the great job on our countertops. Your guys were very professional, friendly and willing to satisfy. I am so glad I chose soapstone and also glad I found Philadelphia Soapstone.

Stephanie – West Chester, PA

Just wanted you to know we are still getting compliments from people who had not yet seen our new kitchen. A few know that it’s soapstone, but most ask what it is. I have of course told them how much better it is than granite, etc. I am also loving how the subtle veining is showing through a little more as the stone is getting worn. It is just becoming as smooth as a well loved/worn leather wallet.

Kate – Towson, MD

We had 36 people over for the party and it went great. The countertops are truly the finishing touch in our kitchen. We received many compliments. I was surprised to learn that many folks weren’t familiar with soapstone. I was impressed with your installers because they really went the “extra mile” to make sure it looked great. Thank you for your help!

Ciro – Cedars, PA

Again, Soooo beautiful – I can’t stop going in the kitchen to look at it! Thank you for making my kitchen my favorite place to be!

Karen – Stockton, NJ

Thank you so much. It was a pleasure working with you and your staff, and we adore our new counters. They’re lovely.

Lauren – Bethesda, MD

We just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the finished product. The countertops look beautiful and we’re so happy we went with soapstone. The installers were so friendly and professional and I thought you’d want to know that. Thanks again for a job well done!

Susan and Steve – Newtown, PA

Thank you for picking out such a beautiful piece for the bar. The entire job is highlighted by the finished edge, in fact, when the marble island was installed later in the week the workers were really in awe of the workmanship and asked me where I purchased the soapstone. Really, really excellent job!

Liz – Spring Lake, NJ

The job looks great and thank you for getting it done so fast. I cannot tell you how much trouble I have getting subcontractors who can meet a deadline. Thanks again.

David – Philadelphia, PA

Just wanted to say that the counters look great. Your guys did an excellent job. The GC has been doing this for 40 years, he’s a perfectionist, and he thinks they look great too. Thanks.

Truman – Philadelphia, PA

We thank you for a beautiful soapstone countertop and sink. The lines and edges are magnificent. It certainly not only finishes our beverage center, but highlights our entire room. Thank you again for a wonderful job.

Gene and Debbie – Medford, NJ

I am thoroughly pleased with my countertop. It is exactly the “look” I am comfortable with and the addition to my kitchen is perfect! Thank you for all your help. Also want to thank you for replacing my sink and turning a potential disaster into a satisfying experience. Your product is superior and your business acumen is stellar.

Hazel – Medford Lakes, NJ

The stuff looks GREAT!! Thanks, great job…

John – Ivyland, PA

The soapstone is magnificent…. You did a fabulous job. First rate quality.

Karen – Clayton, NJ

Thanks for everything, the countertops look great and the seams are almost invisible.

Assaf – Narberth, PA

Hi, it’s Anna in Downingtown, PA, from nearly two years ago. It’s late at night and I’m listening to an audio book while cleaning/oiling the counters, and I thought I’d drop you a note to say that I still LOVE my counters and the kitchen looks fantastic with them. I’ve given your name to a few people here and there and hope you guys are doing well with the business.
