Choosing a countertop material is no easy task. You have to consider price, color, durability, and a host of other factors. When you’re ready to take the plunge and choose a new countertop, it helps to consult the experts. Since 2004, Spencer Granite has installed thousands of countertops for customers throughout New England. While we love all the quartz and natural stone products that Spencer Granite offers, Cambria has some exciting new colors and styles.
Let’s take a look at why Cambria Quartz continues to be a countertop favorite.
Whether you’re looking for a kitchen counter or bathroom vanity, Cambria has a quartz color that will fit your color scheme and style. If you are looking to make a bold statement with your countertop, Cambria has several patterns in black, red, and even bright blue. If you’re looking for something more understated, there are many neutral color palettes, such as whites, grays, and beiges, on offer. Cambria’s new line of Inverness colors is a great way to opt for an understated countertop while highlighting the color scheme of your kitchen or bathroom.
Countertops get put through a lot, especially in the kitchen. When selecting a material, durability is a key factor. Quartz is a manufactured stone and actually harder than granite. Quartz slabs are made from 95% natural ground quartz and 5% polymer resins. As one of the hardest minerals on earth, when combined with polymer resins, quartz slabs are durable and scretch-resistant. Their one drawback is that quartz can be damaged by high temperatures. Always use a trivet or hot pad when placing a hot pan on the counter.
Easy to Clean
The process that makes quartz slabs hard also makes them easy to clean. The polymer resin makes sealing quartz unnecessary. Quartz is not porous like granite, so it is resistant to stains, bacteria, and mold. Light-colored quartz can stain from red wine or tomato sauce, but only if you don’t clean it up quickly. Wipe up any spills right away and you should have no problem with stains. Use warm water and mild soap to keep quartz countertops looking pristine.
A surprising benefit of quartz countertops is that they are good for the environment. Mining industries commonly discard the ground quartz used to make the slabs. Repurposing it to make quartz slabs reduces waste. Cambria Quartz takes it one step further. Cambria uses 100% recycled water to polish their slabs, saving an estimated 1.6 billion gallons of water a year.
