QuartziteThinking about installing new countertops but don’t know which material to go with? Well, since our most popular requests are for quartz, granite and quartzite, we thought we’d break them down and fill you in on some of the benefits of these great products.

Quartz: If you want the ultimate combination of beauty and durability, Cambria is the way to go. A family-owned and American made producer of natural quartz surfaces, Cambria offers amazing quality. Natural quartz is one of the hardest minerals on Earth. While it has the look and feel of granite, it features superior strength. Additionally, quartz is nonporous, perfect for food prep, and will resist stains from common household spills such as coffee, tea and wine. With over 100 designs, see the company’s six newest designs at our Cambria Celebration on September 25! Read More→

Pine Street BuildingCambria is getting bigger in Decatur! Atlanta Glass & Mirror recently had the opportunity to move locations from 3000 Pine Street to 210 Rio Circle, which freed up 18,000 square feet in the Pine Street building. Now, we have enough capacity to house 3,000 Cambria countertop slabs in one spot!

Within the new Cambria warehouse, the quartz slabs are stored in racks. Each slab is individually bar-coded and arranged by design. Two overhead bridge cranes run the length of the building to help transport the heavy quartz slabs throughout the warehouse. After the move, the remainder of the Pine Street building was remodeled to be used as a new office for the Commercial and Multi Family Estimation team for Atlanta Kitchen, Atlanta Marble and National StoneWorks.
