Our History

Celebrating 50 years of the finest flooring in the Ottawa region

Since 1963, Barwood Flooring has brought to Ottawa consumers the highest standard in knowledge, selection, and customer service. With our convenient location, extensive showroom, product lines, and a state of the art humidity-controlled warehouse, Barwood is unparalleled in its commitment to bringing the dream of quality flooring into your home.

Over 50 years of first class knowledge and service from a trusted family business

Selling and installing flooring is our business – that’s all we do and that’s why we do it well. The Barwood Family has been developing relationships in the Ottawa region for over 50 years and have become one of the most trusted companies for knowledge, dependability, and service. Since 1980, our showroom space has almost quadrupled and our staff has grown from 8 to over 30. We have our own staff of skilled trades people that boasts the 10 finest flooring specialists in the region – one of the reasons Barwood has been chosen by Ottawa’s four biggest home builders to provide flooring for the region’s newest housing developments.

Selection – a range that will floor you

We’ve developed strong and lasting relationships with manufacturers and distributors and have secured exclusive rights to superb product lines such as  Mirage Classic and are proud to offer the latest lines of leather flooring and green eco-friendly and allergy-sensitive flooring options such as cork or bamboo. To see the full range of remarkable products we offer, visit us at any of our locations.

Delivery – we say what we do, we do what we say

Some popular hardwood flooring is always in stock, but special orders can take 2 to 3 weeks to be delivered from a factory (as much as 8 weeks in summer). We maintain an extensive inventory that is stored in a humidity-controlled environment so, most of the time, we can move quickly to meet your flooring needs. More importantly, we constantly monitor factory inventories so we can tell you on the spot when you can expect delivery. Furhtermore, because we have close relations with manufacturers and distributors, we’re not standing in line waiting for your order.

Information – we don’t sell, we educate

You’d think hard sales would go hand in hand with hardwood, but at Barwood Flooring we believe quite the opposite is true. Come into our showroom. Loiter. Smell the rosewood. Ask questions. We know a lot about hardwood flooring and we like to share it . We’re not going to rush you into a decision, but when you’re ready, so are we. We can provide you with immediate estimates and scheduling, or arrange to visit your home or office (generally within 72 hours).
