I have an old house in Jersey City and wanted to do a kitchen that looked both 1930s and modern at the same time. I am tired of granite as you see it everywhere. I decieded on Soapstone as it is durable and very beautiful. I then checked out the websites for several places. Jay had good reviews and they are well deserved. He is truly into his work and knows the product well. I picked a beautiful Soapstone from Brazil. Jay did a great job cutting and installing it. I am really happy with my choice and would reccommend Soapstone counters to everyone.
