Soapstone suppliers in DC metro area
Hi all - we were supposed to be picking our soapstone countertop from Stone & Tile World in Rockville. They have one slab that we weren't crazy about. We then looked at some slabs up in Frederick that we really liked (Designer Surfaces Unlimited), but our contractor won't let us go with them. He insists that Stone & Tile world can get ANY soapstone. Well, they called around and found some soapstone up in Jessup at Levantina. A very nice woman, Amy, e-mailed me a picture of the slab, which is nice but very green. We're looking for more of a grey. So far Stone & Tile World hasn't been able to find anything else.
Our contractor doesn't like working with new materials and most of his clients go with granite. He keeps pushing it on us, but I really want soapstone.
Any advice? Any other suppliers that we can contact? I hate to cave to the contractor and go with the green soapstone that would be fine, but not what I really want.
