Cambria Quartz Countertops - The Ultimate in Design and Function!

What is Cambria?

Cambria is a natural, quartz surfacing product that has a variety of uses in your home or business such as countertops, floor tile, vanities, fireplace surrounds, wet bars, showers, etc. Cambria is pure, natural quartz, one of the hardest and most common minerals on Earth. It has the natural look and feel of granite, but features superior performance because of its strength and durability. It is nonporous and will not absorb food and liquids like granite does. And best of all, it is maintenance-free.

How does Cambria compare to granite?

Cambria is 93% quartz, a natural stone. Quartz is the extremely hard mineral that gives Cambria its strength. Granite is only about 40% to 60% quartz, along with other softer minerals and impurities. With Cambria, you get the look and feel of granite, but receive greater strength and the benefit of it being nonporous and maintenance free. Just wash it with warm water, and use a mild soap if desired. Cambria is stain resistant and never needs sealing or reconditioning. Granite is a porous stone and needs to be sealed regularly with a chemical treatment. It can absorb liquids and food, risking potential staining and bacterial growth within the countertop.

How is Cambria different from other quartz surfaces?

Cambria is the only American company in the quartz surfaces business. Cambria's design options are also significantly different, reflecting our knowledge and responsiveness to the marketplace. Additionally, Cambria is a family-owned company with more than 60 years of manufacturing experience.

How does Cambria's price compare to other natural stone or solid surface competitors? What does it cost?

Generally, Cambria prices are comparable to granite and other stone surfaces. Our trade customers such as kitchen and bath dealers, fabricators, and contractors establish Cambria retail prices. Cambria works hard to provide simple pricing and all Cambria designs are sold at the same price.

Is Cambria a natural stone?

Yes. Cambria is pure natural quartz. Quartz is the extremely hard mineral that gives Cambria its strength. Granite is only about 40% to 60% quartz, along with other softer minerals and impurities. Our unique process results in a natural stone product of uncommon beauty and superior strength. It's stronger than granite and is nonporous.

Is Cambria made or manufactured in a plant?

The Cambria facility produces natural quartz into slabs by combining pure quartz with a small amount of pigment and resin. Through the recombining process, we are able to recreate slabs that are nonporous, strong and compact.

What range of Cambria products are available?

Cambria is an excellent surface choice for a wide variety of uses, including kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, shower and tub surrounds, furniture tabletops and accent pieces, fireplace surrounds, desk tops, wet bar areas, and window sills. Cambria is available in 1cm, 2cm and 3cm thicknesses. Various edge profiles can also create the appearance of a thicker slab.

Does Cambria require care and maintenance?

No, keeping with its care-free promise, Cambria requires no sealing, polishing or reconditioning…ever. Simply wipe with warm water and use mild soap if desired. Due to its nonpor

ous nature, and unlike granite, it does NOT require regular sealing and is stain resistant.

Is Camb

ria resistant to surface dam

age?

Cambria is durable and more resistant to surface damage than other stone. However, al

l stone can be damaged by force and no stone is chip-proof. Objects hitting edges, particularly at sinks or dishwashers, may cause chips. Though a minor knife slip will dull the knife and not harm Cambria, no stone surface is scratch-proof. Surface markings are more visible on monotone designs than multi-colored surfaces.

Does Cambria withstand heat? Can I

put a hot pan or pot on it?

Natural stone surfaces can be damaged by sudden and/or rapid change of temperature, especially near the edges as well as direct and/or sustained heating of the top. Cambria may not withstand the direct transfer of heat from pots and pans and other cooking units such as electric frying pans and griddles, and some crock-pots or roaster ovens and heat lamps. Therefore, the use of a hot pad or trivet is always recommended to prevent heating the product.

Is Cambria resistant to staining?

Cambria's nonporous and nonabsorbent surface is resistant to staining and eliminates the need for any sealing. Its nonporou

s surface also greatly reduces the potential for bacterial growth from food absorbing into your countertop.

Is Cambria safe for food preparation?

Yes, Cambria is nonporous and is NSF* 51 certified for food and splash zones in commercial kitchens. There is no safer countertop for food preparation. * NSF International is The Public Health and Safety Company™

How many designs is Cambria available in?

Cambria is available in more than 100 designs. View our collection to see the variety of our design selection.

Does the color go all the way through the Cambria product?

Yes, Cambria's natural quartz and rich colors go all the way through the material.

Is Cambria available at Home Depot or Lowe's?

You won't find Cambria in the "Big Box" stores like Home Depot or Lowe's. Cambria's philosophy is to build lasting relationships with a select group of independent fabrication, installation and retail partners whom are dedicated to quality and customer service, just like we are.

Cambria is available at fine kitchen and bath dealers or through your builder, architect or designer. Cambria works only with exclusive partners who meet premium service and installation standards.

Is Cambria seamless?

Cambria is a natural stone product that does require seams for any application longer than 120" or wider than 54". These seams are generally visible, but often less noticeable than a typical granite seam.

What kind of sink can I use?

Cambria can be used with any under-mount or drop in sink, including stainless steel, cast iron, porcelain, or solid surface. Farm sinks can also be used.

Do you offer a warranty? What does the warranty include?

Cambria offers a Lifetime Limited Warranty for product defects for as long as the original owner owns the product.

Is Cambria a green product?

Cambria is committed to the responsible stewardship of our natural resources. That is why we produce a highly durable and stable material. Cambria is certified by GREENGUARD as a low-emitting product for indoor air quality and is suitable for school environments. Cambria has also been thoroughly tested for radon by Air Quality Sciences, Inc. These tests have independently confirmed that Cambria surfaces have no harmful emissions of any kind.
