What is Cambria Quartz?
Cambria is the leading brand of Man-made Quartz Surfaces used for Kitchen and Bathroom Countertops. Made in America, out of Grand LeSeur & Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Cambria is a Family-Owned Business that proudly employs over 2000 employees nationwide. Founded in 2000, the Davis Family decided to expand its fruitful and thriving Dairy Business by branching out into a different market, Quartz Processing. CEO Marty Davis’ friend came to the Davis’ with the investment opportunity, in which Mark Davis, Marty’s father, invested in. The Davis’ took a leap and forged this new path for their family, creating the popular brand of Quartz Countertops that we all know and love. Quartz itself is a rock hard mineral found in nature. The stone scores a 7 on the MoH’s Hardness Scale, three spots behind Diamonds, which are known as the hardest rock/gem/mineral on Earth (so hard you can cut with it!). The only thing hard enough to scratch a Cambria Countertop is another piece of Quartz itself. Cambria mines their own Quartz from their proprietary mines, searching for only the purest white pieces. The finished product ends up being an “Engineered Stone,” made up of 93% Crushed Quartz, and 7% Binders and Pigment. During the Manufacturing Process, the material is bound together with a small amount of binder, that renders the stone poreless, unlike Granite. Being Non-Porous, Cambria NEVER needs to be sealed like its Natural Stone Counterparts Granite and Marble. The finished product is an Ultra Durable, Scratch Resistant, Stain Resistant, Maintenance-Free Slab of Engineered Stone.
How Much Does Cambria Quartz Cost?
Depending on the Fabricator, the square foot price includes the Material, the Template of the Project, the Fabrication of the Countertops to your exact measurements, and the Installation of the Stone. Fabricators who don’t include Material, Template, Fabrication, and Installation in their square foot prices will often add those charges on à la carte at the end of a quote. This confuses customers, because they budget for the square footage cost of the material, and get blindsided when presented the bill because of extra charges they were unaware weren’t factored in already. In terms of pricing compared to Granite, Cambria falls around Level 2 Granite and up. With Cambria, you also don’t need to pay additional money towards the Sealing of the Countertops, as it is naturally Non-Porous and Stain Resistant. Professional Sealant Application can cost $200+, the price is normally determined by the amount of square footage that needs to be sealed.
