Cambria Quartz Countertops Tampa Bay

Cambria Quartz is one of Tampa’s Hottest Countertop Materials right now.  More and more New Home Builds, New Apartment Structures, and Homeowners are choosing Cambria Quartz for their Countertops in the Tampa Bay area over traditional Granite tops.  Quartz is all the rage, with its Durability and Shine, and because it never needs to be Sealed.  Read more for a recent Homeowner’s experience replacing their Kitchen Countertops with Cambria Quartz.

Meet the Home Owners

Built in 1987, the McMurray home overlooks the Hillsborough River in Tampa.  Tim and his wife have lived in the home for over 19 years.  The entire Kitchen Remodeling Process took them about 4 months from start to finish. Before they could even consider Countertops, their first step was to order new cabinets.  The couple chose raised panel doors in a light gray-blue color.  After the cabinets were installed, Tim and his wife went to work on selecting countertops.

The McMurray’s dove into Countertop Research by looking up Quartz, it’s benefits and the different types of brands of quartz.  Among being scratchproof and stain proof, Quartz never needs to be sealed, unlike other natural stone options like Granite or Marble.  They looked at two brands of quartz, in particular, Quantum Quartz and Cambria.

From their research, the McMurray’s fell in love with Cambria Castlemartin Quartz. Castlemartin is a yellow toned quartz color, with stray strands of blue veining mixed throughout.  After deciding on a color they liked online, they scheduled an In-Home Consultation with International Granite and Stone’s Jessica A to bring a sample of the color to their home.

In addition to the Cambria Castlemartin Quartz, The McMurray’s knew they wanted a Stainless Steel TopZero Sink.  These sinks offer a seamless, rimless look, allowing for the sink edge to blend with the Countertop Material.  They are a great alternative to traditional Undermount sinks. The McMurray’s used the London TZ RS 380 55 Double Bowl Sink for their project.

Before going to International Granite and Stone, the McMurray’s got a quote from another Kitchen place located in South Tampa.  They quoted the client at a much higher rate for the removal of the countertops, about $5000.

“Jessica was great, she was knowledgeable from the start.  The other people, we felt like we were almost bothering them when we went into their showroom” Mrs. McMurray said.

What are Cambria Quartz Countertops?

Cambria Quartz is the leading brand of Man-made Quartz products used for Countertop purposes. Quartz itself is rock hard found in nature, that Cambria enhances for rock solid Countertops.  Cambria Quartz is made up of 93% Crushed Quartz, and 7% Resin.  When bound with the human-safe resin, the finished product is a Non-Porous, Ultra-Durable, slab of material.  These slabs are then sent to Premier Fabricators they trust, like International Granite and Stone. 

International Granite and Stone is a Cambria Premier Dealer.  Cambria Premier Dealers are the crème de la crème in the Countertop World.  Not only does Cambria work hand in hand with these premier companies, but they also guarantee that any work that comes out of these shops with their materials, is up to Cambria’s Seal of Approval.

Cambria Quartz also has other applications, besides just countertops. Cambria can also be used as a Backsplash instead of Traditional tiles, applied on Walls to make a Statement piece, Fireplace Surrounds, Window Sills, Floors, and More!

Quartz and Granite Kitchen Remodel in New Tampa

This week, we got the chance to visit a Condo in the New Tampa Area.  New Tampa, annexed from Tampa in 1988, is a 24 square mile subdivision of Tampa.  New Tampa is right on the border of Hillsborough and Pasco County.  The Soler family moved to the area three and a half years ago.  Originally from New York, the couple moved to Florida in 1993 and have owned (and still do) various homes all over the State.

The Soler’s first started their home renovations with the kid’s bathroom, late last August.  After the bathroom project came the Kitchen.  The couple wanted to redo the whole feel of their kitchen. That meant new cabinets and new floors. They chose White Shaker Cabinets and CaliBamboo Flooring.

“The cabinets had been here since 1992, they desperately needed a facelift.” Mr. Soler said

Next came the Countertops.  The Soler’s found International Granite and Stone on the Internet and scheduled an In-Home Consultation with our Designer Pedro M. to get to work picking out their tops.  The Soler’s knew they wanted something light and bright, but with a little bit of dimension too.  With Pedro’s expert advice, the customer came to the decision to use two types of materials, Granite and Quartz.

After two trips to the showroom, the decision was finalized and colors were chosen.  For the countertop spaces, the couple chose to do Calacatta Imperiale Quantum Quartz, with a Half Bullnose Edge.  They wanted something different for the Island, so they went with a Granite color called Grand Delicatus.  The white in the Granite went well with the Quartz, giving the room a pop of contrast along with it.
