Stone Flooring

Premier Downers Grove / Bolingbrook 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 Downers Grove / Bolingbrook, 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

We are thrilled with our relationship with Footprints Floors. Both Chuck William the ower, and Kyle, his installer, have exceeded our expectations. We started with a small project to replace our master bath floor due to a toilet leak. The leak was missed by the original installer who did a new shower and floor and returned to address the leak with a new wax ring. Thanks to Chuck and Kyle they discovered a faulty sewer flange which was repaired by Stephen's Plumbing. Both agreed, if missed, we could have been looking at a new floor and posible family room ceiling. Happy with the initial project we gave Footprints new issues to solve: a leaking hall bath shower and defective broken tiles in our family room and kitchen, with no spare tiles. Chuck did the caulking and grouting to seal the hall bath leaks, and cleaned the harvested tile, and Kyle laid the new foyer flooring while harvestimg the extra tiles for the repairs. The results are outstanding. We had initially contacted another vendor for the project who ghosted us (possible the job was to small for their taste). Our win!

I’ve NEVER had more of an amazing experience than with Footprints Floors, particularly with Mr. Williams. He helped me cut through the multitude of choices that I often find overwhelming with ease to come up with a choice that enhanced the beauty of my home in a way I never thought possible. Thank you, Charles. My home is beautiful, my wife is happy and I have a new appreciation for customer service!

Chuck and team listened to our vision to update what was a very uneven and thin-- 3" concrete slab floor in our basement. Its a nearly 100yo converted root cellar. He gave us options and contingency plans-- all things were considered! He wasn't quite familiar with the finished look we requested, but he did a lot of research and pulled it off! The install team was great. We love the result.

I cannot say enough about Chuck and staff. We have had a-lot of contractors do work for us over the years and i have to say that footprints have by far exceeded all our expectations. They did an amazing job on our wood floor refinishing and really stand behind their work! Chuck is very professional and courteous unlike most contractors we have dealt with in the past. You can hire them without concern. They truly are worth it!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Chuck and Kyle from Footprint Flooring of the Western suburbs. They were professional, fast, and their work was of high quality. Chuck came by to look at our floors and spent a good amount of time explaining everything in detail that was needed to repair our floors and made sure all of our questions were answered. I was so pleased with the outcome of our flooring. We had our LVP floor repaired and it truly looks amazing. I would highly recommend Footprint Flooring to anyone looking to install or repair their floors. I called around to other flooring companies and I am so glad we chose FootPrints. I got the best vibe from them and now I know why. I can honestly say we are so happy and satisfied with our floors and would use them again.

Chuck and his team were very friendly and thorough. Spent a lot of time answering my questions and explaining things for my peace of mind. The job was done right the first time! Pricing was comparable to other companies in the area, didn’t have to pay more for top-quality work. Thanks, Chuck!

I would highly recommend Footprints if you are looking for flooring work. In our instance we had frozen water pipes that burst and damaged a 4x5 swath of our hardwood flooring. Footprints came out promptly to evaluate the damage and proposed it’s solution. We actually thought we would have to replace a lot more of the floor area than we ended up replacing. Footprints was able to lace the new wood into the existing hardwood and when the work was finished, I could not tell any difference. They matched it perfectly. Footprints was extremely competent, polite and neat. I also found their rate to be very reasonable especially given the high quality of the work. I found the owner of the company dusting in our powder room with a duster after the work was complete! I highly recommend Footprints Flooring.

Chuck is an outstanding business man very polite and charged a fair price. Kyle did an outstanding job on my bathroom floor and I would definitely hire these guys again!!!

Footprints floors did an excellent job restoring my hardwood floors. The floors were in exceptionally bad condition prior to their restoration. They restored my hardwood floors to an almost new state. The hardwood floors are now absolutely gorgeous! I cannot recommend them highly enough for all work they did at a fair price. Thank you!

Very personable and thoughtful. Crew cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. Chuck new what he was doing. Delivered on all of his promises. Exceeded our expectations.
Karen Schmiege 03/16/23 — google
Chuck was a pleasure to work with. Very reasonably priced and started work right away. Gave recommendations based on our wants and did not try to upsell us on unnecessary work. Will definitely be using them again to refinish our hardwood in the future.
Andy Blechschmidt 02/21/23 — google
Chuck and his team were great to work with! I always felt like I was in good hands, which doesn't happen often. Chuck discussed different options for flooring and he even steered me away from some options that would not have been cost effective for me. In a day where making a buck by any means necessary is the norm, I found this rare and totally refreshing! I would definitely use Footprints Floors again.

Chuck and his team were phenomenal! We ripped out old carpet and had installed new vinyl plank flooring… The first night, we noticed a HUGE difference in our kids breathing overnight. Our kids had been coughing a lot when they were in their rooms. We weren’t sure if replacing the carpet would make a difference, but the change was immediate. Our whole family is feeling much better since the carpet was replaced with vinyl. Chuck went above & beyond, and we couldn’t be happier. We will definitely hire Footprints again in the future. Can’t recommend them highly enough!

Chuck did an amazing job in our house! His team refinished our hardwood. They also changed the kitchen tile to hardwood. He is expert in his work, very responsive, and on time. He cared about our house and even gave us a floor protection to use for other contractors. He went to 6 different stores to find the stain color we were looking for. His team was very nice as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone, who is looking for a floor contractor.
Kamelia afshin nia 09/3/22 — google
Chuck and his team refinished our hardwood. Chuck is very nice, knowledgeable and cares about the quality of his job. They were on time and delivered the project according to the initial schedule he provided us. The quality of the job was amazing and the communication was great. We did a few other projects in our house with other contractors, and Chuck was by far the best one. Alex (his crew lead) was a great and nice person and provided great suggestions during the project. Chuck went above and beyond to help us pick the right stain colors. I highly recommend him and will definitely work with him if I have any other projects in the future.
Ali Ghassemi 09/3/22 — google
FootPrints Floors provided excellent service from start to finish. I was well informed as what to expect with the total process. I’m extremely happy with my refinished floors. I would definitely recommend FootPrints Floors!
Kevin Knox 05/2/22 — google
I was very satisfied with the job. There was a small issue that I discovered after the job was completed and I reached out to Chuck who was very responsive and brought someone to caulk around my shower window the very next day. I would definitely recommend this company!
Christine Zidek 04/29/22 — google
Purchased luxury vinyl flooring online from Home Depot. Contracted with Footprints to do the installation. Chuck picked up the materials which was definitely a bonus. The job was pretty routine for a professional - just a small bedroom & the installer was done in just over 3 hours👏 It looks better than I imagined it would. Very happy!
