The team mentality is strong here, we are truly focused on developing people, building relationships, and enhancing environments. Apart from those things, I love managing construction because every day brings new challenges and there is never a dull moment.

- Cameron, Director of Field Operations

I love working for Cornerstone! The integrity, loyalty, and confidence transferred by upper management helps me to perform my job.

- Arturo, Project Manger

“We absolutely LOVE the new flooring! Everyone was super to work with throughout the selection and planning process to the installation team who worked with our employees from early morning to late at night and through the weekend! Those guys moved monstrous filing cabinets and truckloads of furniture…all with a pleasant, can-do attitude!! Thank you all, it has been a pleasure doing business with Cornerstone!”

- Director of Administration & Operations, Louisiana Hospital Association

Cornerstone Commercial Flooring delivered outstanding customer service and product quality to Campus Crossings Lafayette during the property’s annual turnover. Jessie Hayes and Scott Shirley’s knowledge and professionalism were first-class. Replacing upwards of $70,000 in flooring over a three week span was no small task, but Cornerstone accepted the challenge and delivered on its promise of 100% satisfaction.

- Braedon Gary, Campus Crossings Apartments, Lafayette, LA

Their staff has been very helpful with the scheduling of carpet replacement for our apartment homes. I greatly appreciate the confirmations that come the day before installation. It gives us confidence that the installations will go smoothly. I would recommend using Cornerstone Commercial Flooring to anyone who is needing new flooring for their apartment homes.

- Lisa Bearden, Emberwood Apartments

[The CF team] are very good at what they do. They were diligent and worked hard to meet the schedule we laid out. They were professional, polite and focused. I would definitely recommend [them] and not hesitate to have [them] work on any project we have.

- Jody Jagneaux, Optima Speciality Hospital

Thanks guys, this has been a great experience. From start to finish the quality of service has been excellent. Your company as a group has offered small details in your customer services that definitely makes you all stand out. I know that good work sometimes goes unnoticed so I just wanted to pass along my gratitude.

The Cornerstone Story

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

Humble Beginnings

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!
