Stone Flooring

Premier Chicago Stone Installation From Top Industry Professionals


Stone flooring is a natural material that can add elegance and sophistication to your home. However, it is also tough to install correctly because of the many variables involved in laying stone floors.

When choosing a stone for your floor, knowing what you're getting into when installing the product yourself is essential. Stone floors have varying degrees of hardness that require various tools and techniques during installation. If you’re looking for professional stone floor installation in Chicago, Footprints Floors has what you need. Our expert flooring installers will also take care of prep and cleanup to provide your home with beautiful new stone floors!

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


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


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


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


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


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 Rooms in Your Home are Appropriate for
Stone Flooring?

Stone flooring will add an organic touch to a room and also give off a feeling of luxury and wealth. Stone floors may be ideal for living rooms, studies or dining rooms, but they can be used in foyers and hallways as well. The material is heavy and durable, suitable for any high-traffic area that may get lots of wear and tear.

How to Install
Stone Flooring

Stone floor installation should be professionally completed by a Footprints Floors specialist, as it can be difficult without the proper equipment and experience.

For the best results, the stone should be installed over plywood or concrete for stability and ease of installation. The type of adhesive used will depend on what type of stone flooring is being installed and the desired result.

Stone Flooring
Cleaning and Maintenance

Stone floors may be susceptible to scratches, chemicals and oils, which can leave residue behind, so special care must be taken when spills occur. Spills should be cleaned up quickly to avoid leaving an unsightly mark on the floor. It is recommended that professional cleaning and polishing the stone be done every six months and after any spills to keep it looking shiny and new. Stone floors can last up to 30 years before needing an update.

Stone flooring is a unique choice for those who want a strong, organic element in their home or office space. Proper installation is vital to the longevity of the product and should be performed by a professional, like those at Footprints Floors.

What Our Customers Say

Kyle and the team at Footprint Flooring did a fantastic job. The team repaired and replaced some seriously damaged areas seamlessly blending with the old floor. They worked quickly, they were professional and provided ample communication every step of the way. Even though our floors are close to 100 years old, Kyle and his team made them feel and look brand new. Highly recommend!!
Ashley Thomas 07/8/24 — google
Kyle (the owner) was easy to work with and did a great job! Would definitely use him again!
Becky Weissman 06/20/24 — google
So, I interviewed three or four places. Why did I pick Kyle and Footprints? One place, who was supplied by my condo's management company, said the floors were too old to be sanded and stained. I got a good price form someone else but it did not include staining. When Kyle came, the tipping points for me were (a) I liked him (b) he gave me a pamphlet of stains and showed me the most popular ones per real estate agents (c) he said the floors were old but could take one more sanding and stain. That to me showed knowledge, expertise, and consideration of my ultimate goal - selling the place. And, they did a great job.
Paul Hope 05/11/24 — google
Kyle and his team were absolutely fantastic. They worked with us on a tight timeline to level the floors in the back rooms and put in all new wood floors throughout our unit. It was a big job, and they were straightforward about the work, respectful of our time and space, extremely easy to communicate with, and very kind as well. Our new floors look and feel incredible - we’re so happy with the work they did. Would work with them again without hesitation!

Kyle is the owner of Footprints Flooring in Chicago. He was very responsive and professional throughout the whole process of restoring my floors. His guys did a great job and I am happy with the results.
Jolanta Gal 05/10/24 — google
Quick, communicative, and amazing job! Truly know their stuff and treat you like their most important customer.
Exal Iraheta 04/19/24 — google
Before speaking to Kyle at Footprints I thought it was important for me to speak directly with a subcontractor who would personally be performing the floor installation themselves. In doing so it wasn’t clear that these other contractors really heard or would ultimately act on what I was saying, or whether they really cared, often hearing the common refrain “no problem.” Kyle was very effective at listening to and addressing my concerns throughout the entire process and then successfully passing the information and my concerns on to Rudy and Riamundo who followed through on those details during the installation. Effective communication, listening, understanding and follow through are paramount qualities, abilities and skills to possess and employ in order to translate the many details of the job into a quality, thorough execution of the installation. These qualities are not always easily found. I was out of town for much of the process and had to handle details remotely, by phone and text, making these qualities all the more important to my circumstance. Kyle and Footprints was extremely responsive to my phone calls, texts, concerns and needs and they made themselves available in a very validating, accommodating and prompt manner, directly addressing my concerns with excellent listening, communication and follow through skills that turned my vision into a fabulous result. Kyle will answer all of your questions; respond promptly, clearly, honestly, and concisely. He listens and follows through on the detailed execution. He will allow you to be as involved in the process as much as you care to be or take on matters independently. He stands behind his work and will not disappear. At least that was my positive experience. There exists the art and skill and craftsmanship of a Quality Installation as much as there exists the art and skill and relationship skills of Quality Customer Service. Kyle Battles and Footprints possess both. Many Thumbs Up !!!
K Skeer 04/10/24 — google
We recently had our hardwood floors refinished and Kyle and his team did a WONDERFUL job! They were responsive, professional, clean, fair on pricing, and efficient. After an awful experience with a previous flooring company, Footprints Floors was able to come in and restore our floors. Highly recommend!
Jennifer Oyola 04/5/24 — google
We couldn't be happier with the hardwood flooring refinishing job completed by Footprints Floors Chicago! From start to finish, the team demonstrated professionalism, courtesy, and exceptional skill. Our tired floors were transformed into stunning works of art, exceeding our expectations in every way. The attention to detail was remarkable, and the quality of work was outstanding. Throughout the process, communication with the owner Kyle was seamless; he promptly addressed all our questions and concerns. To top it off, Kyle's team completed the job a day earlier than expected! Highly recommend Footprints Floors Chicago for anyone seeking top-notch hardwood flooring services!
Sean Wang 03/13/24 — google
I worked with Footprints to refinish hardwood floors in my condo. Kyle's team did great work. They moved fast, and the results were exactly what I hoped for. Can't recommend them enough.
Daniel Garrett 03/5/24 — google
Great job and Kyle was able to meet my time schedule.
Jason Cummins 03/4/24 — google
Kyle and team did incredible work! Our whole process from quote to dry beautiful floors was about a week, they made my hardwood maple shine again and made the whole process easy and smooth. I will be recommending them to anyone in my network who needs their floors redone going forward. Thanks so much guys!! Photos show the transformation from old to new in the same area of floor :)
sydney j 02/24/24 — google
Kyle and the team at Footprints Floors were truly wonderful to work with. From the quote to install, service was above and beyond. I had braced for a multi-day project, but to my delight the bulk of the work was completed in a single day. Our basement playroom has now been converted into a gym with a functional rubber floor, and we couldn't be happier with the result!
Hillary Gurber 02/20/24 — google
Excellent company. Beautiful work laying a tile floor in our kitchen in between other remodeling work being done. Very accommodating on scheduling. Efficient and very clean. Estimate = Final price. Highly recommend!
Jean Marie Koon 02/16/24 — google
Kyle and his crew committed to the job on a fairly tight schedule and took care of everything in a first-rate manner. The work is beautiful, and the experience was as low-stress as you could want. They even had a terrific playlist!
Robert Koon 01/30/24 — google
Excellent service from estimate through to project finish. We were communicated with the whole way, we had one or two odd requests that were accommodated with ease, and the end result looks great!
Erik Shell 01/13/24 — google
kyle did an awesome job from start to finish. his team did my floors while i was on vacation and out of the house. they moved my furniture and put it back where it was (added cost but worth it). he kept me updated through the whole process and my floors and stairs look amazing!! and the cost was very reasonable. highly recommend.
Tofer Mishler 01/11/24 — google
Footprints Floors Chicago (FFC) did an excellent job refinishing a bedroom, stair treads and landings. FFC also replaced damaged floor boards in our 1920s era house and expertly matched the existing pine floor boards. We were greatly appreciative of how easy it was to work with FFC as they scheduled our job around the scheduling needs of our family. FFC were timely, efficient and did a great job with minimizing the dust from a very messy job. We will call on FFC when we are ready to tackle our next flooring related project effort.
Paul Proto 01/9/24 — google
Just worked with Kyle on flooring for our basement. Common sense pricing, very professional, flexible and responsive communicator, and high quality work.
Daniel Orbach 12/8/23 — google
Communicative, responsible and efficient. We had a great experience (we put luxury tile that looks like hardwood installed in our basement) and highly recommend.
