For some time, granite has dominated as a remodeler’s choice for Atlanta kitchen countertops. However, due to its unique textures, color and depth, quartz is becoming a viable option and new kitchen trend. Plus, quartz is more durable than other traditional countertop surfaces such as granite or marble. In fact, only diamonds, sapphires and topazes are harder than quartz.
There are many advantages to choosing quartz:
1. Quartz is less likely to crack or chip when installed.
2. Quartz countertops are naturally scratch resistant.
3. These countertops do not have to be sealed. Read More→
As if there weren’t enough colors of Cambria to choose from, Construction Resources will be adding 21 more colors to its array of offerings. With the new colors, that totals 83 illustrious colors of Cambria.
What is Cambria? It is a natural quartz surface, the only of its kind in the United States. The surface is stain resistant and non-porous, allowing many years of beautiful use. The surface is eco-friendly as well. It is used in buildings that achieve LEED certification, has achieved NSF International certification as being safe for food preparation and has achieved GREENGUARD for Children and Schools and is Indoor Air Quailty Certified. No
chemical sealants or waxes are used on the surface, making it one of the most eco-friendly and safe choices of countertops.
Many of the new colors resemble other popular surfaces, such as granite and marble. Those design elements coupled with the quality of Cambria quartz give consumers a wide range of options when looking for countertops.
These colors will be available Oct. 1. For more information on the new colors, visit the Construction Resources website or visit the Decatur showroom and indoor slab gallery at 224 Rio Circle, Decatur, Ga. 30030.

Environmental sustainability is a huge deciding factor when it comes to materials in any remodel or build. Luckily, Construction Resources offers several eco-friendly countertop options that are beautiful as well.
Cambria quartz countertops are available in 100 colors. The non-porous material is not only beautiful, but high performance, as it resists staining, scratching and scorching. Homeowners or builders striving for LEED Certification can gain points by utilizing this material for countertops. The post-consumer or post-industrial materials dictate the colors. Cambria comes out with new colors frequently, and is a no-muss, no-fuss way to have the looks of granite and marble without extra maintenance while still helping the environment.
The IceStone line is another eco-friendly option, and versatile as well. The surface can be used for countertops, walls and floors alike. IceStone comes in 24 standard colors, but due to the ability to tint the background mix and select from different sizes and colors of glass, the palette is unbound. Combining the strength of granite and heat resistance of stone, the material is very durable. Also, due to the high recycled content, the material can be used for LEED points.
Keeping with the recycled glass theme, Construction Resources offer Vetrazzo glass surfaces. Made of 85 percent glass (all recycled). The colors continually evolve as difference sources of recycled glass are discovered. The surface is durable and easy to maintain on top of being heat and scratch resistant.
