MANY CHOICES AND COLORS

Cambria countertops can simulate the look and feel of natural stones to a certain extent. It is true that they cannot attain the uniqueness of granite or marble, of which no two slabs are exactly alike. However, this is not always a good thing. It can be very difficult to find matching natural stones, which can be a problem if you are trying to achieve a consistent look in your kitchen, living room, or bathroom.
Cambria countertops are available in many colors and designs that are always available, and it would be a wonder if you cannot find one to match any design or color scheme. Because it is a synthetic stone, the colors and patterns will be consistent for easy matching. You can also get Cambria slabs in different shapes and sizes. That is not the case for natural stone, which is a case of what you see is what you get. You cannot order a slab to your specifications, but only work with what is available.

Usage of Cambria

Cambria quartz slabs have taken the place of natural stone as the best material for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, and fireplace surrounds.  These are not the same as natural quartz slabs, which does not have the same resilience and versatility.

Affordable Cambria Counter Tops

Some people consider Cambria countertops too expensive considering there are more affordable options available. Others believe that engineered quartz is not as good as natural stone, so the cost cannot be justified. There are quite a few reasons why these preferences may not be the most practical, and makes the case for Cambria countertops.
As to specifics, you can expect to pay between $50 and $100 a square foot for a new Cambria countertop, including installation. This does not include sinks or plumbing costs, and associated materials.

If you are looking to save on installation costs, Cambria countertops are not for you. Our accredited and insured installers can make sure that the job is done right so you can avoid problems later on.

How Healthy

One of the biggest problems with natural stones is porosity. Granite and marble are both porous, so they need regular sealed to keep it from staining and harboring bacteria, mold, and mildew. Cambria countertops are non-porous, so there is no problem with using it for food preparation. This is what makes it ideal for kitchen countertops. It is almost as hygienic as stainless steel, which is why it has certification for this use from the National Sanitation Foundation.

How Durable

Some people argue that natural stone such as granite is durable, and resistant to scratches and heat, so it is as good as Cambria stone. However, by its composition there is no comparison. Granite gets its hardness from the quartz in its makeup. Quartz rates a 7 in the Mohs harness scale for minerals, but the typical granite stone has no more than 60% quartz, and some only have 20% quartz. Cambria stone, on the other hand, is about 93% quartz, so it is obvious that Cambria will be much tougher than granite under all circumstances.
Cambria stone may not be a natural stone, but it is certainly durable. It is able to withstand a considerable amount of pressure and heat, primarily due to the use of high quality materials and tight control imposed over its production. While they are not indestructible, they can take a lot of use and abuse, much more than natural stones.
It is not surprising that the company gives its products a Lifetime Limited Warranty. With minimal maintenance and reasonable care, you can expect your countertops to last for that long.

HOW TO CLEAN CAMBRIA

Cambria countertops are easy to clean because it is non-porous and non-reactive. It does not stain or etch like granite or marble, so all you really need is to wipe it down regularly with a clean dry cloth. You can also use a mild detergent or glass cleaner followed by clean water and a dry cloth for more significant messes and oils. You can also use a bleach solution to sanitize surfaces if you want.

VALUE ADDED TO YOUR HOME

Stone countertops are always going to be a plus in any home, especially if you choose a classic color and design. Cambria countertops can help you achieve a cohesive and consistent look to your kitchen, bathroom, and living room. It is an investment you will not regret.
