Fabrication differences: granite v. soapstone
I'm going to search for a soapstone fabricator soon. My GC has never subbed out for soapstone before. And, my cabinet guy "has only heard bad things about how fragile it is."
So, needless to say, I'm not asking them for fabricator recommendations.
Based on what I've learned on GW, soapstone and granite should not undergo the same fabrication process. So, I need to be wary of a fabricator who can't articulate how he would do soapstone differently from granite.
But, if I'm going to be an educated consumer, I need to know the right answer when I ask, "how do you do handle a soapstone fabrication?" Basically, I'd like to know what part(s) of the granite fabrication process are no-nos for soapstone.
Can anyone tell me the key things to look for? Or, just as important, what responses would tell me I should avoid a certain fabricator?
