OUR STORY

Local Commercial Flooring Contractor

COMMITTED TO SERVICE. ALWAYS IMPROVING.

“Because we’ve always done it that way,” is a dangerous phrase.

At Lippert Flooring and Tile, we have a focus on change for improvement. We aren’t afraid to try new. We aren’t afraid to try different. And we aren’t afraid to try big. That being said, we do believe there’s one thing about business that shouldn’t change – our commitment to service. Because we’ve always done it that way and we always will!

Healthcare Flooring - Milwaukee, WI

“Lippert Tile is one of the most professional organizations we have ever worked with. A true partner in the industry.”

– Carson Cooper, District Manager, Mannington

HISTORY OF LIPPERT FLOORING & TILE

TRUE. STRAIGHT. LEVEL.

SINCE 1949.

Developing skilled labor isn’t just a passion, it’s actually the reason Lippert Flooring and Tile was founded. Our founder, William Lippert Sr., first opened the doors because his employer wouldn’t offer an apprenticeship position to his son, Bill Jr. Knowing the value of hard work, determination, and the power of family – both blood relatives and friends you meet along the way – we’ve carried William’s passion, drive, and family-mentality since 1949 and will continue to do so for generations.

Our Philosphy

We are a steward of now – improving each moment to be better in the next.

Lippert-Continued-Education

Business Family

Our family business has grown to a business family – caring for each other professionally and personally.

Our Definition of Business

Two people equally committed to a successful outcome.

Driven by the desire to create a legacy, we are honored today that Grandpa’s family business has grown to an extended business family – raising generations of tile setters, designers, and service professionals for our industry.
