Squak Mountain Stone

The manufacturer of this innovative countertop material leaves natural stone in the quarries, but you'd never know it

Length: 0:50
Produced By: Tom Olivares

If you love the look and feel of soapstone or limestone but want a countertop material that is environmentally responsible, lightweight, and easily modified, Squak Mountain Stone delivers a product that resembles natural stone and is almost entirely recycled. The material is made of concrete, fly ash, and recycled glass and paper. It comes sealed from the manufacturer (you'll need to seal where you cut) and makes for a beautiful, rustic, solid-surface countertop.
