    Default Nature Stone flooring. How much $$$

    Anyone on here have nature stone flooring?

    A finished basement is not too distant in my future. And I have seen it before and liked the look.

    So a few questions:

    How do you like yours?
    Any Cons?
    And how much did it cost you per sq ft?

    I put Nature Stone in my Garage in 05 for 2600.00$ 24x24. Cheaper than Concrete holds up well. Do not spill any caustic liquids on it or use a floor jack.

    So about $4.50/sq ft, yikes

    What did you put it down over?? Was this ALL nature stone, like 4" thick?? or did you put it over concrete.

    This will be going down on top of concrete in the basement.

    Tile and grout is an option. But I have heard that the nature stone isnt as cold to walk on.

    Carpet and wood are out of the question. I want something that will hold up to an occational leak from above. Leaks happen. Its just a matter of when and where. And I dont want to have to deal with replacing carpet everytime I have a little leak.

    4.50 is way cheaper than replacing the concrete. go checkout a basement job and reportback.

    If you're looking for inexpensive and nice looking, how about stained concrete with a good sealer? Two coats of stain and penetrating sealer cost less than $1 per square foot. A shade more if you go with a high-gloss solvent sealer. Rental on a floor sander for $40 per day, so $80. Sanding pads and buffing pads about $30. A cheap big box store sprayer for less than $20. A roll of blue tape and masking paper for the baseboards and walls $20. You probably already have a shopvac for cleanup.

    There you go. I did my garage cause my floor was flaking real bad, and it was 3500.00 cheaper than concrete.

    Stone tiles are available. Prices vary. They have to go on a good base with perhaps a separation layer between the concrete and stone.

    A stone flagging flooris a little different.

    I always cringed when I thought about vacuming or cleaning that style of floor.

    I would put a nice stone tile down in the basement.
    I enjoy my cars, garden and tractors!
