What is Cambria?

Cambria is a quartz countertop and surfacing product that has a variety of uses in your home or business such as countertops, backsplashes, floor tile, vanities, fireplace surrounds, wet bars, showers, etc. Cambria consists of pure, natural quartz—one of the hardest and most common minerals on Earth—and pigments and binders. Some of our designs have the natural look and feel of granite, marble, and other quarried stones, but they all feature superior performance because of Cambria’s strength and durability. Cambria is nonabsorbent and nonporous and will not absorb food and liquids. And best of all, it is maintenance free. Quartz just needs to be cleaned with warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and mild soap, if desired. Learn more about the benefits of Cambria.

How does Cambria compare to granite?

Cambria is made from natural quartz, one of the hardest minerals on Earth, for superior durability and performance. With Cambria, you get the look and feel of granite, but with the benefit of it being nonabsorbent and maintenance free. Simply clean Cambria with warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and mild soap, if desired. Cambria is stain resistant and never needs sealing or reconditioning. 

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 changes 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, slow cookers, roaster ovens, and heat lamps. Therefore, the use of a closed-weave hot pad or solid trivet such as a breadboard is always recommended to prevent heating the product.

Does Cambria require care and maintenance?

No, keeping with its care-free promise, Cambria requires no sealing, polishing, or reconditioning. Simply wipe with warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and mild soap, if desired. Due to its nonabsorbent nature, and unlike granite, it does NOT require regular sealing and is stain resistant. See how simple it is to care for Cambria quartz surfaces. 

How do I remove residues from quartz countertops?

Residues on the surface of Cambria can simply be removed using warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and a mild soap, if desired. Easy care isn’t the only thing that makes quartz great. Discover all the benefits of quartz on our All About Quartz page.

How can I prepare for my installation day?

Prepare for your new countertops by reviewing the Cambria Installation Day Checklist.

Is my Cambria slab going to look exactly like the samples I received?

The design sample is a small select cut from a slab; it does not fully exhibit all the design characteristics of the final installed product. We recommend visiting a local gallery or slab showroom to see a full-size slab.

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. Farmhouse sinks can also be used.
