Premier Vinyl and Luxury Vinyl Plank Installation

From Top Industry Professionals


Vinyl flooring or LVP (luxury vinyl plank) have become the most popular flooring choice for homes today. This is true for new builds and flooring renovations done in older homes. There is good reason for this popularity. Although traditional flooring, with real hardwood and stone, can be desirable, the cost of this kind of flooring can be unattainable for many. Furthermore, hardwood flooring is vulnerable to scratches and damage. Repairs for these authentic materials are not as simple or again as affordable as their modern counterparts in vinyl.

On the other hand, vinyl flooring is both aesthetically appealing and financially accessible. The versatile selection of patterns and the durability of vinyl make it an option for any home with any aesthetic. This is why we see this kind of flooring in both houses, new and old. Whatever your flooring needs and desires may be, there is a vinyl floor that will satisfy both.

At Footprints Floors we specialize in the installation of vinyl and LVP flooring . If you are currently in search of vinyl floor installation in Downers Grove / Bolingbrook, give Footprints Floors a call and request a free consultation. We only employ qualified, licensed contractors to ensure that our clients receive the highest quality flooring installation.

Why LVP or Vinyl Flooring?

Durable/Water Resistant
Variety of Patterns
Cost Effective

Vinyl or luxury vinyl flooring can be an ideal choice for any home or any room. These flooring types are durable and water resistant making them exceptional choices for bathrooms, kitchens, mudrooms and entryways. The maintenance of vinyl is simple and easy. Just another attribute that makes this material a great candidate for flooring in those high traffic areas of your home.

In addition, LVP or vinyl flooring features flawless images, realistic textures and individual planks, sheets or tiles to give the look and feel of the material of your choosing. With an array of patterns and images to choose from, vinyl can achieve the appearance of real hardwood, marble, ceramic, stone, or something entirely unique! Your floors can become the statement piece you desire and at a fraction of the price when you choose vinyl.

Is Vinyl Better than Linoleum?

Vinyl and linoleum have different advantages in any remodeling project. Consider your specific needs and preferences to make the best choice for your home or business. Here are a few reasons why choosing vinyl floor installation in Downers Grove / Bolingbrook may be better for your project.

One of the main advantages of vinyl flooring is its water resistance. Luxury vinyl plank, or LVP flooring, is made from synthetic materials, which makes it impervious to water and resistant to moisture damage. This makes it an ideal choice for areas prone to spills, such as kitchens and bathrooms, or spaces like the basement that are vulnerable to flooding. In contrast, linoleum is made from natural materials such as linseed oil and cork, which can be susceptible to water damage over time. While linoleum can be sealed to help prevent water damage, it may not be as durable as vinyl in areas with high humidity or moisture.

Another advantage of vinyl flooring is its durability and resistance to wear and tear. Vinyl is made from multiple layers, including a wear layer that helps protect the surface from scratches and dents. This makes it an excellent choice for high-traffic areas such as hallways and entryways and homes with pets or children. Linoleum is also durable but may require regular maintenance, such as waxing and buffing, to maintain its appearance and prevent wear.

LVP flooring also offers a wider variety of design options than linoleum. Vinyl can mimic the look of hardwood, tile, or stone and come in a wide range of colors and patterns. If you’re looking to breathe fresh air into your space, vinyl flooring offers a diverse range of styles so you can find the perfect design choice for your home or business. On the other hand, linoleum may have more limited design options and may not be as versatile in matching different design styles.

Modern vinyl flooring has evolved over the past few years into a diverse array of styles and finishes that can fit into the style and aesthetic of most homes. It’s also a great affordable and long-lasting choice. With many homeowners choosing to remodel an older home or make improvements to their current estate, vinyl flooring can be an excellent choice to update the design of a room. Footprints Floors has trained staff to make vinyl plank flooring installation a smooth process for homeowners in Downers Grove / Bolingbrook.

What To Expect With Installation:

When you have hired Footprints Floors to do your flooring installation, you can count on a few things.
  • Professional skilled contractors
  • Affordable rates
  • Quality installation
  • Preparation and clean-up

We at Footprints Floors are a family-founded company. We take great pride in providing high quality work at an affordable rate. We accomplish this by employing skilled contractors capable of impeccable flooring installation. In addition, our business model of providing the labor for floor installation and leaving out the showroom maintenance, (we do not sell flooring), allows us to cut costs and share that savings with our clients. Even though we do not sell our own flooring, should you like recommendations for flooring retailers, we can provide you the contact information for those we trust. Furthermore, because of this business model, your flooring selection will not be limited by a finite inventory. You may have your pick from any vendor allowing your design possibilities to be limitless.

When you schedule an appointment with Footprints Floors for flooring installation, we will perform the demolition of your current floor, an assessment of subflooring, lay a new underlayment (if necessary), install the new vinyl flooring and clean up the entire work site. When we leave your home, you will have a beautiful new space to enjoy and admire.

Other Considerations When Choosing Vinyl:

You are now familiar with the many positive attributes of vinyl and LVP, and may be wondering if there are any other aspects that need to be considered before making your selection. We have a few pro-tips for you to keep in mind.

Vinyl Quality Can Vary


While vinyl floors can be an affordable option, you do want to take care when selecting your vinyl product. Not all vinyl or LVP floors are made with the same quality standards. If in doubt feel free to ask our expert opinion on selecting a high quality product.

Vinyl Floors can be Difficult to Remove


Depending on the method of installation for the vinyl floors, removal can be labor intensive. Fortunately, you can call us to assist in any repairs, or floor removal and installation needs. We will take the stress of labor intensive work off your hands and guarantee a quality job.

Caring for LVP Flooring


Vinyl and LVP floors are durable and will last for years to come. However, after many years of wear vinyl flooring can develop a buildup of dirt and grime leaving the surface with a dull appearance. Fortunately, there is a good solution for this problem, and we at Footprints Floors are here to help.

The experts at Footprints Floors can have your vinyl floor looking brand new in no time. We will buff and polish your floor or complete a full stripping and restoration depending on the severity of damage to your vinyl flooring.

Vinyl Flooring Durability

Modern vinyl flooring has evolved over the past few years into a diverse array of styles and finishes that can fit into the style and aesthetic of most homes. It’s also a great affordable and long-lasting choice. (LINK to Vinyl Flooring Durability cluster topic) With many homeowners choosing to remodel an older home or make improvements to their current estate, vinyl flooring can be an excellent choice to update the design of a room.

Will the top image fade?

No, the top image will not fade. The image embossed on the vinyl is sealed with a highly durable, clear coat to ensure the flooring looks beautiful for years.

Vinyl flooring is toxic

Many worry that these floors may be toxic. It is true that older vinyl floors were made with more questionable materials. However, today the industry is required to follow strict guidelines set by the EPA to ensure vinyl products are safe for inside the home.

Vinyl and laminate are the same

These two floor types may appear to be similar. In fact, they are both composed of entirely different materials. These different materials produce different characteristics in the flooring. A vinyl floor will be both more flexible and more water resistant than that of a laminate floor.

What Our Customers Say

Chuck was very thorough with explaining the whole process and his team did a great job of refinishing our wood floor.
Kelly Karns 07/23/24 — google
Chuck knew exactly what to do for my damaged hardwood floors.He was, above all, professional, knowledgeable, and made my options easy to choose with very low costs! I will definitely use Footprints Floor again as well as highly recommend them to all my friends and colleagues..
Rosalyn Haley 06/21/24 — google
We are thrilled with our relationship with Footprints Floors. Both Chuck William the ower, and Kyle, his installer, have exceeded our expectations. We started with a small project to replace our master bath floor due to a toilet leak. The leak was missed by the original installer who did a new shower and floor and returned to address the leak with a new wax ring. Thanks to Chuck and Kyle they discovered a faulty sewer flange which was repaired by Stephen's Plumbing. Both agreed, if missed, we could have been looking at a new floor and posible family room ceiling. Happy with the initial project we gave Footprints new issues to solve: a leaking hall bath shower and defective broken tiles in our family room and kitchen, with no spare tiles. Chuck did the caulking and grouting to seal the hall bath leaks, and cleaned the harvested tile, and Kyle laid the new foyer flooring while harvestimg the extra tiles for the repairs. The results are outstanding. We had initially contacted another vendor for the project who ghosted us (possible the job was to small for their taste). Our win!

William Maynie 05/30/24 — google
I’ve NEVER had more of an amazing experience than with Footprints Floors, particularly with Mr. Williams. He helped me cut through the multitude of choices that I often find overwhelming with ease to come up with a choice that enhanced the beauty of my home in a way I never thought possible. Thank you, Charles. My home is beautiful, my wife is happy and I have a new appreciation for customer service!

J J 05/29/24 — google
Chuck and team listened to our vision to update what was a very uneven and thin-- 3" concrete slab floor in our basement. Its a nearly 100yo converted root cellar. He gave us options and contingency plans-- all things were considered! He wasn't quite familiar with the finished look we requested, but he did a lot of research and pulled it off! The install team was great. We love the result.
Hanna Auza 04/27/24 — google
I cannot say enough about Chuck and staff. We have had a-lot of contractors do work for us over the years and i have to say that footprints have by far exceeded all our expectations. They did an amazing job on our wood floor refinishing and really stand behind their work! Chuck is very professional and courteous unlike most contractors we have dealt with in the past. You can hire them without concern. They truly are worth it!
carmen Lollino 04/27/24 — google
We recently had the pleasure of working with Chuck and Kyle from Footprint Flooring of the Western suburbs. They were professional, fast, and their work was of high quality. Chuck came by to look at our floors and spent a good amount of time explaining everything in detail that was needed to repair our floors and made sure all of our questions were answered. I was so pleased with the outcome of our flooring. We had our LVP floor repaired and it truly looks amazing. I would highly recommend Footprint Flooring to anyone looking to install or repair their floors. I called around to other flooring companies and I am so glad we chose FootPrints. I got the best vibe from them and now I know why. I can honestly say we are so happy and satisfied with our floors and would use them again.
Caterina DeBenny 04/27/24 — google
Chuck and his team were very friendly and thorough. Spent a lot of time answering my questions and explaining things for my peace of mind. The job was done right the first time! Pricing was comparable to other companies in the area, didn’t have to pay more for top-quality work. Thanks, Chuck!
Ellen Gatien 04/2/24 — google
I would highly recommend Footprints if you are looking for flooring work. In our instance we had frozen water pipes that burst and damaged a 4x5 swath of our hardwood flooring. Footprints came out promptly to evaluate the damage and proposed it’s solution. We actually thought we would have to replace a lot more of the floor area than we ended up replacing. Footprints was able to lace the new wood into the existing hardwood and when the work was finished, I could not tell any difference. They matched it perfectly. Footprints was extremely competent, polite and neat. I also found their rate to be very reasonable especially given the high quality of the work. I found the owner of the company dusting in our powder room with a duster after the work was complete! I highly recommend Footprints Flooring.
Betty Tsamis 03/12/24 — google
Chuck is an outstanding business man very polite and charged a fair price. Kyle did an outstanding job on my bathroom floor and I would definitely hire these guys again!!!
Diane Boyd 04/21/23 — google
Footprints floors did an excellent job restoring my hardwood floors. The floors were in exceptionally bad condition prior to their restoration. They restored my hardwood floors to an almost new state. The hardwood floors are now absolutely gorgeous! I cannot recommend them highly enough for all work they did at a fair price. Thank you!
Ms. M Wms 03/22/23 — google
Very personable and thoughtful. Crew cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. Chuck new what he was doing. Delivered on all of his promises. Exceeded our expectations.
Karen Schmiege 03/16/23 — google
Chuck was a pleasure to work with. Very reasonably priced and started work right away. Gave recommendations based on our wants and did not try to upsell us on unnecessary work. Will definitely be using them again to refinish our hardwood in the future.
Andy Blechschmidt 02/21/23 — google
Chuck and his team were great to work with! I always felt like I was in good hands, which doesn't happen often. Chuck discussed different options for flooring and he even steered me away from some options that would not have been cost effective for me. In a day where making a buck by any means necessary is the norm, I found this rare and totally refreshing! I would definitely use Footprints Floors again.
L Marie 11/21/22 — google
Chuck and his team were phenomenal! We ripped out old carpet and had installed new vinyl plank flooring… The first night, we noticed a HUGE difference in our kids breathing overnight. Our kids had been coughing a lot when they were in their rooms. We weren’t sure if replacing the carpet would make a difference, but the change was immediate. Our whole family is feeling much better since the carpet was replaced with vinyl. Chuck went above & beyond, and we couldn’t be happier. We will definitely hire Footprints again in the future. Can’t recommend them highly enough!
Max Lyons 11/5/22 — google
Chuck did an amazing job in our house! His team refinished our hardwood. They also changed the kitchen tile to hardwood. He is expert in his work, very responsive, and on time. He cared about our house and even gave us a floor protection to use for other contractors. He went to 6 different stores to find the stain color we were looking for. His team was very nice as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone, who is looking for a floor contractor.
Kamelia afshin nia 09/3/22 — google
Chuck and his team refinished our hardwood. Chuck is very nice, knowledgeable and cares about the quality of his job. They were on time and delivered the project according to the initial schedule he provided us. The quality of the job was amazing and the communication was great. We did a few other projects in our house with other contractors, and Chuck was by far the best one. Alex (his crew lead) was a great and nice person and provided great suggestions during the project. Chuck went above and beyond to help us pick the right stain colors. I highly recommend him and will definitely work with him if I have any other projects in the future.
Ali Ghassemi 09/3/22 — google
FootPrints Floors provided excellent service from start to finish. I was well informed as what to expect with the total process. I’m extremely happy with my refinished floors. I would definitely recommend FootPrints Floors!
