What Is Quartz
Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on Earth. Because of its strength and abundance, quartz is a popular and reliable choice for countertops. Quartz countertops are sometimes referred to as “engineered” or “man-made,” but quartz is in fact a natural stone. The amount of natural quartz in a slab depends on the quartz manufacturer. Cambria is among the highest concentration of pure quartz to ensure strong, compact slabs.
Reasons To Choose Cambria
Strength & Durability
Cambria is much harder than granite or marble making it more durable. That means Cambriais less likely to scratch, chip, or stain for years of worry-free service.
Other natural stone surfaces like granite and marble require regular sealing and polishing. With Cambria, all you need to do is wipe it down with a little warm water and mild soap.
Cambria is nonporous and nonabsorbent so it won’t draw in moisture from raw or leftover food, which can harbor harmful bacteria.
QUARTZ PROS & CONS
With quartz countertops, the pros outweigh the cons.
- One of the main benefits of quartz countertops is that they are extremely durable.
- Quartz countertops never have to be sealed, unlike granite, marble, and other surfaces that require regular maintenance.
- Quartz countertops are also non-absorbent, so they resist staining and don’t harbor harmful bacteria.
- Homeowners and designers also turn to quartz for its versatile and beautiful designs, colors, and patterns.
- Quartz countertops are scratch-resistant, but due to their hardness, they may dull a knife that is used directly on the surface.
- Like all natural stone countertops, quartz can be damaged by sudden changes in temperature. Potholders and trivets should be used to protect a quartz countertop from anything hot.
- Though quartz countertops are not approved for outdoor use, quartz may be used in outdoor kitchens with full overhead coverage from the elements.
Quartz VS. Granite
Quartz VS. MARBLE
Quartz VS. Concrete
Unlike quartz, concrete is not a natural stone. Concrete is a mixture of water, cement, and an aggregate of sand or gravel. Concrete countertops are porous, susceptible to stains, and require sealing. Quartz countertops do not absorb liquids, do not stain, and never require maintenance. Concrete countertops are sometimes touted as a DIY project, but they are extremely heavy and difficult to install. When purchased from reputable companies and retailers, quartz countertops are installed in a smooth, expert process by professionals.
Quartz VS. SOAPSTONE
Quartz countertops are significantly more durable than soapstone countertops. Soapstone countertops etch and scratch easily and must be oiled regularly to maintain their appearance. Quartz countertops are scratch resistant and do not require any maintenance. Soapstone countertops have a soft, powdery feel to the touch and their appearance can change or darken over time. High-quality quartz countertops will maintain the same appearance over time without any upkeep.
QUARTZ COUNTERTOP DESIGNS & COLORS
Quartz countertops come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and tones making them a versatile option for many interior design styles. Quartz countertop colors range from solid, monochromatic hues to boldly patterned designs with intricate movement and veining. Many popular quartz designs showcase neutral or earth tones and reflect the look of granite, marble, or other stones. Quartz colors can also be unique and vibrant, including reds, blues, greens, and golds. Some quartz designs incorporate shimmer and sparkle, with jewel-like particles.
