The pandemic has shaken many sectors of the economy, which is why it’s more important than ever to support local businesses. Many conscientious shoppers have turned to “buying local,” and as a regionally-based business ourselves, we agree! Not only does buying American-made products boost regional economies, but it helps to sustain jobs as well. When it comes to remodeling your home or bathroom, it can be difficult to stick within a regional radius however, the next best thing is to work with a local contractor and choose products manufactured in the USA. Artistic Stone is a proud authorized dealer for Starmark cabinetry and a certified fabricator and installer for Cambria, two American-based businesses that specialize in quality products and ethical business practices.

Cambria: The Only Quartz Manufactured in the U.S.
Cambria is a relative newcomer in the engineered stone countertop market, but since it hit the scene in 2000, the company has quickly made a name for itself and become one of the top quartz manufacturers. Cambria is the only quartz manufacturer in America; Not only are Cambria’s products made in American, but the manufacturer produces some of the most stunning and expertly crafted quartz products available. From slab production to countertop installation, all Cambria purchases benefit our national economy.
Cambria’s quartz countertops are available in hundreds of colors, ranging from trendy, modern designs to gorgeous pieces that mimic the appearance of marble, granite, and soapstone. Unlike granite or marble, quartz is non-porous, so maintenance is easy! Quartz is also scratch-resistant, which means you get the best of both worlds – beauty and durability.
