How Does Cambria Compare to Granite?

Cambria is 93% quartz, a natural stone. Quartz is the extremely hard mineral that gives Cambria its strength. Granite is only about 40% to 60% quartz, along with other softer minerals and impurities. With Cambria, you get the look and feel of granite, but receive greater strength and the benefit of it being nonporous and maintenance free. Just wash it with warm water, and use a mild soap if desired. Cambria is stain resistant and never needs sealing or reconditioning. Granite is a porous stone and needs to be sealed regularly with a chemical treatment. It can absorb liquids and food, risking potential staining and bacterial growth within the countertop.

What is Cambria?

Cambria is a natural quartz surfacing product that has a variety of uses in your home or business such as countertops, floor tile, vanities, fireplace surrounds, wet bars, showers, etc. Cambria is made of pure, natural quartz, one of the hardest and most abundant minerals on Earth. Some of Cambria’s designs have the natural look and feel of granite, marble and other quarried stones, but feature superior performance because of Cambria's strength and durability. It is nonporous and will not absorb food and liquids like granite does. And best of all, it is maintenance-free.

How do I request a Quote?

It is easy to get a quote for your project. Simply print out the Quote Request Form and create a simple hand sketch of your countertop requirements. Then you can either scan & e-mail it to us at or fax it to our office at 905-967-0950. Quartz Craft Countertops will return the quote to you within 24 hours.

Why doesn't Quartz Craft give a per sq foot price?

Cambria is priced per project. A per square foot price does not give you all of the information you need to make an accurate product comparison. Per square foot prices are often subject to additional costs based on the colour you choose, the edge profile you choose, the sink you choose and the stove you choose. Quartz Craft Countertops will supply you with a no obligation quotation that gives you the total cost of your countertop project. A project price is the best way to make comparisons with other products.
