Cambria Countertop Prices
Ten years ago, almost no one in the United States had heard of quartz countertops. Now, they're rapidly growing in popularity, thanks to their beauty and durability.
Cambria is one of the leading manufacturers of quartz countertops. The company makes high-end countertops in a variety of colors and designs. Cambria quartz can also be used for bathrooms and backsplashes.
About Cambria Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops are engineered using more than 90% natural stone and a blend of resins that serves as a binding agent. They're long-lasting and easy to maintain.
Because quartz is harder than most other types of natural stone, it's more difficult to damage. And because the stone is engineered, you're not limited to the natural shape of a slab. There are plenty of design possibilities.
Quartz is not indestructible, however. Read on to find out more about how to properly maintain your Cambria countertops for the longest possible life.
Cambria Countertop Average Costs
The price of quartz countertops is similar to other natural stone, such as granite. Most Cambria countertops cost $50 to $100 per square foot, including installation. If you have 30 square feet of counter space - which is fairly standard - budget anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000, not including taxes and delivery fees.
Certain features and upgrades can add to the total cost of Cambria countertop, including:
- Fancy, decorative edges
- Cutouts for the sink and stove
- Upgrading to a thicker countertop (3 CM instead of 2 CM)
Samples of Cambria countertops can be purchased for $5.75 for a 3X3-inch piece and $15 for a 12X12-inch piece. If you're not sure which of Cambria's nearly 100 colors to select, ordering samples is a great idea. Keep in mind, however, that with natural stones there are always variations in color. What is delivered will be close to the sample color, but it might not be an exact match.
Cambria Countertop Care and Maintenance
Cambria quartz countertops are easy to clean. The company recommends using just a soft cloth and water or mild soap. The counters are also sturdy and durable. No sealing, polishing or reconditioning is required.
Cambria countertops are not impossible to damage, however. Avoid using harsh chemicals and abrasives, and use a heat pad to avoid scorching and staining. Detailed care and maintenance information is available on the company's website.
