About Cambria Quartz Surfaces

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.
