From Humble Beginnings

XL Flooring began in 2001 when our founders, Laurent Vallieres & Jindra Vallieres, discovered a remarkable flooring product that spawned an innovative idea – having the floor of your dreams didn’t have to be a complicated and frustrating process. So, they packed the trunk of their car and traveled across North America spreading the word about loose-lay, hassle free luxury vinyl flooring. The result of their efforts, almost 20 years later, is a thriving business with over 2000 dealers throughout North America carrying our two flooring brands XL and EZ Lay Flooring.

This past December 2019, a new group of partners joined the XL Flooring Team. Tom Skidmore, Cary Skidmore, Brian Poschner and Jas Boparai of the Skidmore Development Group have joined XL Flooring as shareholders and directors. Skidmore Development Group brings past executive leadership in companies such as Speedy Glass and GLENTEL group of companies – the founder of WIRELESSAVE. With expertise in retail, B2B, distribution and franchising, Skidmore will be a strategic partner with our management team, to enable and support sustainable growth, building on XL Flooring’s competitive strengths and future opportunities.

As it has always been, our commitment to innovative design, unrivaled quality and 100% customer satisfaction remains steadfast as we continue to build upon our reputation as the leader in Luxury Vinyl Flooring throughout North America.
