Why Remodel Your Stairs During

Stairs are a beautiful architectural piece in your home, but there are many other reasons it’s a good idea to keep them updated. Whether it’s a full-scale remodel to match a home’s new look or just a new set of treads and risers, keeping your stairs in good shape is good practice as a homeowner.

  • Safety: A staircase is one of the highest traffic areas in a home, and as they become worn down over time, they can quickly become a safety hazard. Old stairs can become loose as the foundation settles, and wood stairs that aren’t maintained can become slippery. Loose holds or wobbly steps can also be dangerous. Well-kept stairs are less likely to lead to a fall, slip or other accident.
  • Home Value: In addition to making a home safe, an updated staircase is an important contributor to a home’s value. Scuffed or worn risers, broken spindles or steps that need to be refinished can lower home value.
  • Appeal: Along with increased home value, a beautiful staircase also has increased buyer appeal. If the staircase doesn’t match the rest of the home, it can be a drawback.

What is Stone Flooring?

Stone flooring may be a good choice for those who prefer an earthy feel. One can choose from many stone flooring types, including limestone, travertine, granite, marble and slate. The characteristics of those options will vary with each choice.


Limestone flooring is a type of stone flooring that can be found in many modern-day residences. This type of stone flooring is not only popular, but also has many benefits. Limestone floors are one of the most durable types of materials due to their tough and heavy characteristics.

Limestone floors can hold up against scratches and spills, which means they do not need to be refinished as often as other materials.


Travertine flooring is made of limestone that has been compacted and cemented together. Travertine comes in various colors, from tan, to brown, to black, each with unique characteristics.

Travertine can be challenging to install on your own due to the weight of the stone and the fact that it may not adhere if not correctly pressed down onto a surface. Travertine flooring will have a natural feel, as all the color variations come from natural impurities in the stone's formation.


Granite is an igneous rock that has formed over millions of years by the cooling and solidifying magma below Earth's surface. It is one of the hardest natural materials known to man. Granite's physical characteristics make it preferable for flooring as it has a uniform grain and texture, making each slab naturally easy to split into slabs.

The uniformity of granite also means that there are rarely any surprises with the final product because every piece will look similar to its neighbors.

Granite flooring is resistant to heat, water, scratches and stains, making it great for kitchens and bathrooms where spills are common. It is also very durable, so the stone can be used in areas with heavy traffic such as hallways or foyers without wearing down or becoming damaged easily. The surface of granite has a low porosity which makes it resistant to dirt buildup.


Marble is a metamorphic rock of mineral aggregate, with variable hardness and a high natural polish. It can be used as a cheaper alternative to granite flooring.

Marble slabs are generally more economical than granite slabs. Although marble slabs have a glossy appearance, they may have a slight sheen or texture that makes them less desirable for high-traffic areas at first glance. Still, marble slabs offer many of the same benefits as granite slabs with less expense involved.


Slate flooring is a type of stone that is found in metamorphic rocks. Slate is mined from the earth and then worked to create versatile flooring options for different applications. Slate can be polished to have a high sheen, matte finish — or somewhere in between. There are also textured slates available for those who want a more rustic look without the additional cost of installation.

What Does a Stair Remodel Involve?

Choosing to remodel your staircase can be a small or large project, depending on how much work and how many things you want to change. From wood stairs to carpeting and railings, each part of the staircase can be renovated or repaired. Remodeling possibilities include:


Whether the railings are loose, worn or just don’t fit your interior style anymore, these can all be tightened or replaced.

Newel Posts

These are the posts that hold up railings. If they are loose or broken, it can affect the whole handrail.


Balusters are the decorative parts of handrails. Iron and wood are the most popular options for these. If you choose to replace your treads, you’ll also have to replace the balusters.

Treads and Risers

Treads and risers are the actual “steps” of a staircase, and may need to be replaced if they are wobbly or worn down.

What Our Customers Say

Great job… good value. Showed up. Original 1960’s hardwood that had not been properly finished after the carpets came up almost 10 years ago. Picture on the left is the before picture, right is the amazing after picture
Stephanie Gibbs 09/14/23 — google
Footprint Floors was wonderful to work with! They responded to my inquiry quickly and scheduled and finished the work in a very timely manner. The work was excellent! Would definitely use Footprint Floors again!
Mary Hart 05/16/23 — google
The team at Footprints Floors are amazing, they responded in a timely manner, let me know ahead of time when they were coming in, what to expect out of the whole process, and I feel that they really went above and beyond the entire time. They were very detailed when installing, making sure that things looked aesthetically good as well as professionally installed. I also have to say that it is so nice to have a reliable company that allows you to choose your own flooring, and not from their company's binder of limited options. Shout out to the owners Joe and Liz who are phenomenal and so sweet, and of course to James who was such a help through the whole process.

I am very happy with the job. Footprints came on time for the site visit estimate. Quick to respond to email or phone. Explained the process ahead of time. The crew showed exactly on time for the job. They were neat and clean. Set up the saw outdoors to keep sawdust and noise outside the house. Careful moving furniture. Loaded debris and swept up before they left. The flooring job looks perfect- level and smooth, no cracks or busted up boards, joints staggered attractively, thresholds between rooms and tile unobtrusive.
