John Gilbert is a rare person in today's world. Not only does he give you an honest opinion and is not in it to make unnecessary repairs, he gives you his honest opinion. He is punctual, professional, and his team of Greg and Ziggy are wonderful! They take pride in their work and it shows in the finished product. John is not out to take advantage of his customer. He is honest, personable, and he is genuine in his assessment. He is easy to contact and communicates each step of the process, so that there are no surprises. He takes a personal interest as if it were his own home. I reached out to two other floor installers and neither one even took the time to get back to me with a quote. John worked up a quote and emailed it to me that same night. It was a very fair quote and my husband and I signed right then and there. If you are looking for a company that stands by its work, takes pride in its work, and is just very easy to communicate with, Floor Footprints is it. I highly recommend John Gilbert's company. You will not be disappointed, but rather extremely pleased. My completed floor gives my kitchen a whole new look! No job is too small for John. I will not hesitate to give friends and family his contact information if they are ever in need of a floor replacement. If I ever need additional work, I know who I will contact to do it.

Footprints Floors Northshore is a great company to work with. John Gilbert, the owner, does a lot of the estimates, but he himself also makes sure he is present at every job, every day to ensure quality, and to maintain communication with customers. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and overall, Footprints offers great value for a great overall experience in any flooring project.
