 Est . 1990             Family Owned & Operated ; History to current             Meet the team


Started by Wayne & Sheila Buffan, they entered the flooring industry after transitioning from the logistic industry. Wayne co-founded Speedy Cartage in Brampton, Ontario before embarking into the flooring industry. Opening their first location in Bolton, Ontario off of Hwy 50 under the name The Carpet Barn. They soon after opened the second location in the town of Uxbridge. A fitting community to operate a business as well as raise 5 kids. For many years both business grew with the industry as they adapted to selling all floor coverings. Thus changing the name of The Carpet barn to The Flooring Barn. In 2008 Wayne passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer. The choice to close the Bolton Carpet Barn location was a hard but necessary one as Brent (Sheila & Waynes oldest) felt it was needed for the growth of the company to continue.  The Flooring Barn is "Where Fashion Meets Floors" and will continue in Wayne's honor.
