Canadian owned and operated, Logs End is Canada’s leading supplier of river-reclaimed, wide plank hardwood flooring and millwork.
From the 1830s to the early 1990s, it is estimated that more than 1.3 million cubic meters of wood was sent annual via the Gatineau River and its tributaries to the Ottawa River mills. During the course of the 400 kilometer journey, countless logs were lost and now lay on the river’s floor.
Logs End recovers the lost timber hidden in the water. Diving operations take place on the Ottawa River, its tributaries and small neighbouring lakes. Each and every log recovered is raised by hand, ensuring the area’s aquaculture is improved, not damaged. The logs are then dried, milled and crafted into dimensional lumber, custom flooring, and millwork including paneling, posts, beams, mouldings and trim.
The old-growth water-preserved logs offer wood floors and millwork of unparalleled quality and beauty. Their wideplank hardwood flooring collections include Reclaimed White & Red Pine, Yellow Birch, Hard Maple, Red Oak, White Oak (Flat), White Oak (Rift & Quartersawn), European Oak, Hickory, Cherry, & Walnut. Logs End flooring is available from 2 ¼” – 12” in widths and in long lengths.
All wood species boast tight wood grains and rich colours not seen in new-growth forests, which is why Logs End wood floors and millwork are renowned world wide.
Logs End is committed to honouring Canada’s rich logging and woodcraft history. All aspects of their operations are guided by a “zero waste” policy, along with a commitment to the environment that benefits our planet’s future.
