Jim Lloyd founded Cornerstone Flooring Companies in 2002 after working in the flooring industry for 15 years. Over the years, Jim was able to build a dedicated and talented team of professionals that has worked on some of the most high-profile building projects in the gulf south.
In 2016, the company dealt with the aftermath of historic flooding that occurred in Baton Rouge. Cornerstone was able to survive and ultimately rise to the top of their game through hard work and compassion for our community.
If what we do is not memorable, it's wasted. The more I see the impact we can have on people's lives, the more seriously I take this work. -Jim Lloyd
Jim started Cornerstone Flooring after seeing a need for reputable & reliable service in the flooring industry. “I remember my first desk was folding table and chair. A computer system that someone had thrown away and a fork lift that looked like it had come from a junk yard! The roof leaked in my office so badly that we kept bare concrete floors. We were bare bones and having fun.”
Since that time, Cornerstone has onboarded dozens of loyal and professional team members who are equipped to face the ever changing markets and trends in the industry. They have expanded their services, offerings everything from demolition to moisture mitigation to furniture lift systems. Their Baton Rouge operations have expanded and they’ve added new locations in Lafayette and New Orleans and Tampa…with more to come!
