Cambria countertops are close to being the ideal countertop solution, but it does have a few drawbacks. It is quite an investment, for one thing, although it should pay for itself in the long run, as mentioned before. However, budget considerations are always important. Cambria countertops are on par with other high-end countertop materials, including granite and marble, although lower priced options are available for some colors and patterns. However, it is possible that it will become more affordable as technology advances.
One thing of note is that installation of quartz countertops goes through a more laborious and expensive process than other materials, perhaps because they have warranties. Cambria countertops have to be go through a certified distributed, who send people to take measurements before scheduling an installer to do the deed. It is not a job for the do-it-yourselfer or the local contractor. In addition, Cambria countertops are heavier than natural stone of the same size, so there are structural issues that can only be addressed by professionals.
Aside from slight installation issues, there is really nothing holding Cambria countertops back from becoming the preferred board for use in the kitchen and bathroom. Natural stone may have the edge when it is a question of esthetics, but it may not be enough to edge out the more durable, hygienic, convenient, and cost-effective newcomer.
