Soapstone Repair and Restoration | Houston TX

Professional Soapstone Care and Restoration

Some homeowners love the natural, untreated soft-gray look of soapstone. If you want to skip the mineral oil or wax applications and start with a like-new lighter finish, professional resurfacing will be necessary. Other homeowners prefer the look of color-enhanced soapstone. Either way, the stone restoration professionals at NextGen Surface Care can achieve the results you have in mind for your soapstone. We can also resolve soapstone problems such as chips, cracks, and scratches that are too deep to be sanded out by hand.

A Little Bit About Soapstone…

Soapstone is an underrated high-performance countertop material composed primarily of talc, silicate, chlorite and magnesium. Although it feels soft to the touch, it is strong, durable, and resistant to damage from heat or chemicals. Because soapstone is nonporous, most substances cannot penetrate the surface, which means it will rarely stain. Even after 100 years of hard use, soapstone can be re-finished to a like-new state, as though it had just been installed.

How to Care for Soapstone

For the most part, soapstone can be maintained using DIY methods. With age and use, soapstone naturally darkens. To keep give the darkening of soapstone a more even appearance, apply mineral oil or wax. Most scratches can be removed with light sanding. With proper care, soapstone can easily last for many years.
Alkalis and acids found in many foods and drinks are not likely to stain the dense and inert surface of soapstone (which is why it is so popular in labs and science classrooms). Any staining that occurs can usually be remedied with sanding, but if you have trouble removing a stain, our scrubbing and sanding services can quickly and easily remove the stain. Our sealing services can also help inhibit staining.
