Richard Gerber, Owner


Richard Gerber, has been working with hardwood floors for over 32 years now. Within 3 years of starting to learn the trade, Richard decided to venture out and start his own company. Gerber Hardwood Flooring began in early 1995.

Taking his first steps as a young business owner in Oakville, Ontario; Richard had many opportunities to work on large projects in affluent neighborhoods of Oakville's waterfront areas. Then Weston began to boom, so most of the jobs took Richard to the Northern Toronto areas. In 1997 together with his young family, Richard moved to the beautiful city of Barrie, and never looked back.

Gerber Hardwood Flooring took off in this vibrant, growing city. Richard is happy to be a part of this wonderful community. His happy Customers and Clients are the driving force behind his business. Word of mouth is Richard's main advertising medium. Word of Mouth and this Company Website.

Adam Gerber, Dustless Refinishing Specialist


The youngest member of the Gerber Flooring Team. He is a graduate of the Police Foundations Program at the Georgian College in Barrie. During his first encounter with hardwood installation at the age of 6; while he was having fun, playing with the wood pieces an laying out the boards to be installed in the family's first home, he showed his willingness and persistence to learn.

He started helping his dad during his summers off from school when he was 12 years old. At that time it was the sweeping and vacuuming that needed to be done between stain and varnish coats... then he graduated to edger work. At 16, Adam started to learn his way around the heavy sanders and started doing installation work. Today Adam is 30, he installs real hardwood as well as LVPF, engineered, laminate and cork flooring.  His trade skills now also include sanding and refinishing.

Dustless Floor Refinishing from Gerber Flooring Team

Fifteen years after Gerber Hardwood Flooring has introduced the Dustless Floor Refinishing, today it is unanimous with our company. Being able to provide this extraordinary service that allows your home improvement projects to be a bit less of a headache, is such a great gratifying experience for all of us. 

By reducing the amount of dust generated during the sanding process by 85-90%, we are able to provide you with a clean slate after your floors are refinished and our team and truck are gone.  We've been told time and time again how happy the Clients are that they are not faced with a major dust clean-up after the project is completed. 

You can meet Richard, Adam and Joanna, here.
