Below are a few reminders
about your new
Maintaining Cambria is easy.
Simply wash with a soft cotton cloth and warm water, use a mild soap
DO NOT expose, in use or
otherwise, Cambria to abrasive or strong alkaline or acid or free
radicals or oxidizers or the like (whether high, neutral or low pH)
cleaners. Various chemicals are corrosive and/or erosive in their
ability to attack any structure including Cambria. Be aware of
these potential damages to your surface.
Cambria IS NOT heat proof,
chemical proof or fracture proof in any form. Be aware of damaging
exposure to these potential damaging acts upon your Cambria.
DO NOT use or expose Cambria to
such products including, but not limited to bleach, oven cleaners,
Comet®, Soft Scrub®, SOS®, products
with pumice, batteries, paint removers, furniture strippers, tarnish
or silver cleaners, or the like. DO NOT use abrasive or harsh scrub
pads. DO NOT apply any sealers, penetrants or topical treatments to
Cambria under any circumstances. Such products will wear off and
cause the gloss to appear dull or inconsistent. Contact Cambria for
further information by calling 1-866-Cambria or visiting their

(quartz) color, pattern, size and shade are inherent and unique
characteristics to be expected with this product. This does not
affect the Product performance in any manner.
are intended and designed into many colors to enhance the natural
beauty. Samples are small select cuts from a slab; they do not
exhibit all the characteristics of a color and therefore are not
fully representative of what will be installed. Products will not
be replaced due to these variations.
Cambria is durable and more
resistant to surface damage than other stone. However, all
stone can be damaged by force and no stone is chip-proof. Objects
hitting edges particularly at sinks or dishwashers may cause chips.
Though a minor knife slip will dull the knife and not harm Cambria,
no stone surface is scratch-proof. Surface markings are more
visible on monotone colors than multi-colored surfaces.
Cambria is not a seamless
Product, seams are visible. Where there are seams the
Product pattern and shade can change.
Natural stone surfaces can be
damaged by sudden and/or rapid change of temperature
especially near the edges, as well as direct and/or sustained
heating of the top. Cambria may not withstand the direct transfer
of heat from pots and pans and other cooking units such as electric
frying pans and griddles, and some crock-pots or roaster ovens and
heat lamps. Therefore, the use of a hot pad or trivet is always
recommended to prevent heating the Product.
Cambria is not a structural
support Product. 2-cm and 3-cm Cambria thicknesses are for
countertops and must be supported. 1-cm thicknesses are for surface
finishes such as walls, tub and shower surrounds and fireplaces;
horizontal applications such as tub deck must be completely
supported as well.
or Honed finishes (1-cm) will not shine and will soil and appear to
stain from soiling.
installation is optimized when walls and cabinets are properly
prepared for installation. This includes but is not limited to
structurally sound, straight, level and square walls and cabinets,
lack of which may cause poor installation and poor seam fit, or
inconsistent countertop overhang and placement.
