Consumer Reports has listed quartz as the highest rated countertop material choice, with excellent ratings for heat resistance, durability and abrasion. Quartz is consistent with granite as far as heat and scratch resistance, but where you typically need to reseal granite once a year (depending on the sealer, some last longer), quartz is nonporous so you never have to worry about resealing! Typically quartz surfaces are made up of 93% quartz; most granite only contains about 40-60% quartz, that’s why quartz durability is much greater. So with all of the quartz companies out there…
What makes Cambria quartz different?
To start, Cambria is an American made and manufactured product, with their local plant right here in Kent, Ohio. They use the clearest quartz in the industry, adding more depth and dimension to your countertop! Cambria has 120 colors available for every style, and all of their colors are the same price. There are more consistent patterns such as Cranbrook, featured in our North Royalton showroom with the Basin edge on a Celadon with Black Glaze island in Norcraft cabinetry’s Jamison door style.
Or there are Cambria styles with movement and unique veining, for a more natural look. A newer addition to the Cambria color line, Galloway, compliments Kraftmaid’s Pebble Grey painted Maple cabinetry in the Belmont partial overlay door style.
Cambria has a choice of 19 edge profiles, all at the same price; with the exception of the thicker 4cm, and 6cm edges, and the chiseled and mitered edge styles. Since Cambria is actually fabricating your slab, and only licensed Cambria installers are completing the job, the quality is better controlled. Also, Cambria is an Ecofriendly company, with certifications from The U.S. Green Building Council and it meets the Greenguard certification, with no impact on indoor air quality. Cambria’s plants themselves also recycle 100% of the water they use from cutting and fabricating!
Their website is great for finding out more info, and they even have interactive, full slab pictures of colors! Check it out at www.cambriausa.com.
