Alberene Soapstone in a mortar setting is ideal for exterior applications. Highly temperature resistant and non-porous, soapstone will not expand and contract like slate and bluestone – no popping out of the mortar or cracking due to temperature extremes.

Benefits to Homeowners

  • Soapstone withstands great fluctuations in temperature with little expansion or contraction.
  • No popping out of setting like bluestone.
  • Soapstone is naturally non-absorbent.
  • Cannot absorb icemelt or other weather-resisting treatments.
  • No spalling from freezing and thawing like concrete and bluestone will.
  • Low “slip factor,” performing better than other natural materials such as blue stone.
  • Resistant to harm from acids (safe for retail and professional cleaning agents).

Benefits to Installers

  • Gauged to uniform thickness, considerably reducing the time and effort required for a professional uniform setting.
  • We cut stair treads, wall caps and other design elements to size.
  • You can sand the edges to soften look and feel, and to ensure perfectly aligned settings.
  • Easily workable for clean cuts, tight fits and uniform setting.
