I would like to thank you for choosing us as your premiere countertop company. Working in the countertop industry since the age of 16, I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and skills in all aspects of stonework. Starting my stone career as a sweeper/backsplash polisher in my brother in-law’s granite shop, I quickly rose to a management position. I then moved on to work with a few larger countertop companies learning different aspects of the industry, ranging from track home production to custom million dollar homes. Having more than a decade of experience with countertops and my hunger unsatisfied, I turned my focus to soapstone. After learning the qualities of soapstone and its unlimited possibilities, I knew I found my niche. Soapstone differs from other (materials/stones) in that it has a smooth and almost moldable quality to the touch and a matte finish which places it in a class of its own.
Aside from the numerous benefits soapstone possesses, the look and feel of the stone alone is astonishing. Soapstone is nonporous and non-absorbent. Therefore, sealing is not required and stains and bacteria are a non-issue. Due to these reasons and more, soapstone is an incredible stone of choice! Once I understood the quality of soapstone, I realized it was the stone I preferred. This passion for working with soapstone led me to work in a soapstone shop on the weekends while continuing my day job of firefighting during the week. After some time pursuing both interests I decided I wanted to fully commit to soapstone and start my own company. First and foremost, I wanted this company to be more than just numbers on a spreadsheet of net loss and gain. I grew up in a large healthy family that was successful because of the emphasis on love, support, and hard work. I understood that if I wanted my company to be run effectively it would need to model the core values of my family. The values like hard work, quality, love, and care that constantly kept us growing as individuals. It is because of these values that we’ve integrated at Genoa Soapstone that we can stand behind our quality and product 100%. Join us and together let’s turn your dream kitchen/bathroom in to a reality.
