Why It’s Important to Choose a Local Fabricator

Choose a Local Fabricator

When most people think about choosing local businesses and services, it sounds like a great idea if only to contribute to the local economy. But when it comes to home renovations, choosing local ensures that your project is tailored towards you, and installed with consideration for the unique aspects of your home. When you choose a specialized, local fabricator for your home renovation, here’s a few things you can expect.


When working with a local fabricator like Garden State Soapstone ™, you won’t go through dozens of employees, outsourced companies, and your stone won’t be handled by people you aren’t familiar with. When a customer contacts us to learn more, we always make sure to coordinate schedules to arrange a meeting, educate the customer on different types of stone, and work closely with the customer to meet design and budget goals. Jay has been working with soapstone and slate for over 15 years, and takes pride in guiding homeowners, designers, architects, and other potential customers through the entire process.
