Getting a marble floor installed professionally usually starts around $9 -$20 a square foot including materials and labor. That translates to $900 -$2,000 for marble floor installation in a 100-square-foot area. Rare and expensive marble floors including sought-after light shades, engraving, hand-painting or special finishes cost from $10 -$40 a square foot for the marble. Installation can add another $10 -$50 or more per square foot. This would make for a total of $2,000 -$9,000 100-square-foot area.
What 's Included in Marble Floor Installation?
Cleaning and leveling of the subfloor
Because marble flooring is porous, it can be stained.
There can be extra charges for furniture removal and replacement; ripping out and disposing of old flooring material; repairing or replacing a damaged subfloor; and removing and then re-hanging doors. You may be charged around 20 cents extra per square foot to remove old carpet, another 20 cents per square foot for moving furniture, $15 for moving each appliance, $35 per toilet or more.
Because sand and grit can scratche marble flooring, daily dust-mopping is recommended for high-traffic areas. Most well-maintained residential marble floors will need to be professionally honed and polished in 2-4 years. Marble floors that have been damaged ususally require multiple grindings before polishing, which increases the cost per square foot.
