In the entryway of my home, I have dated-looking stone which I would love to replace with engineered walnut flooring. The entryway is above grade. The current stone flooring has some variation in thickness (+- 3/16”), dips down where the grout is and the stone has some up&down to it . I’d like to lay a foam underlayment to even our the surface of the stone and float the floor on top, avoiding the demolition of the stone. I would confirm the moisture level of the stone first. Are there any issues that I’m overlooking?

Thank you for your feedback.
