Cambria is handcrafted, using pure natural quartz, American ingenuity, and artistic innovation. Cambria prides itself on being the leading family-owned, American-made producer of natural stone surfaces. A top-quality, handcrafted product with breathtaking beauty, exceptional durability, and maintenance-free convenience.
All joints are finished with a small ariss to the top edge and are carefully sealed with silicone to allow for expansion and to prevent water seeping through or bacteria growing in cavities.
Tolerance in quartz worktops is ±2mm
Heavily Veined / Particulated Colours
These colours are highly unlikely to have contineous flow of the pattern when 2 sheets or 2 pieces of the same sheet are seamed together. The change of pattern will show up on the seam area
Due to thermal expansion Quartz can expand up to 1mm per meter
Overhangs & Support
Any overhang extending more than 300mm should be supported and carcasses should be 600mm spacing
Due to the weight of quartz worktops, it is essential that your units are level and securely fixed.
Cutouts for Hobs, Sinks, etc
Sink cutouts are placed a minimum 50mm from the worktop front edge
A minimum of 120mm is required between two hob cut outs.
A minimum of 100mm is required between hob and sink cut outs.
A minimum of 70mm is required between two sink cut outs.
If a waste disposal unit is fitted to an undermounted sink after installation, additional support will be required, otherwise your warranty may be invalidated.
Stainless Steel Sinks
Carefully select your preferred method of undermounting stainless steel sinks to ensure sufficient support.
When the plumbing is done to the sink, it is important that the plumber reseals it with silicone, otherwise water may seep through the gap and your warranty may be invalidated
Upstands less than 100mm high are extremely fragile and are not recommended.
Upstands are not normally cut from the same slab as the worksurfaces and therefore an exact colour match is not possible.
Because quartz upstands are straight and rigid, gaps will be visible if there are any imperfections or variations on the wall profile. To cover these gaps between the wall and the upstands, it is recommended that plastering or tiling be completed after the worktop installation.
Our quartz worktops are fabricated by a high-tech process from at least 94% natural quartz, blended with polymer resin, making it extraordinarily hard and resilient, with unequalled hygienic properties and exceptional beauty and luxury.
Corrosive chemicals can damage any surface, including Cambria. Do not expose Cambria to strong alkalines, acids, free radicals, oxidizers, or other similar chemicals or cleaners (whether high, neutral, or low pH).
Bluestone offer a Care and Maintenance Kit which has been developed to offer the customer everything they need to keep their worktops looking good for years to come.
All natural stone surfaces, including Cambria, can be damaged by sudden and excessive heat, especially near the edges, as well as direct and/or sustained heating on the top. Always be sure to put closed-weave hot pads or solid trivets under hot pots, pans, griddles, electric frying pans, slow cookers, and roaster ovens before placing them on Cambria.
Quartz worktops are highly scratch resistant but not scratch proof and the surface must be protected by chopping or cutting boards. Dark colours will show scratches.
Quartz worktops are incredibly hard and non-porous and will not absorb liquids, but it is still possible that grease, wine, coffee, nicotine, fruit juices and other strongly coloured substances can stain the surface if not properly protected or if the spills are not cleaned up immediately. Care and Maintenance kits are available from Bluestone
Quartz worktops is naturally hygienic as it is non-porous
For installation of worktops weighing above 120kg, you will need to supply additional labour at no cost to Bluestone. Every additional 75kg requires an extra person to assist with lifting.
