My Story

About Us

Our slogan is Foo and You!  Because it's all about YOU getting the floor and service you want at a fair price.  

Foo Shunnarah has been the owner of Homewood Carpet & Flooring since 2006. Foo will help you throughout your project from the time you contact him to your in-home estimate, selecting a floor to post-installation and beyond. Homewood Carpet & Flooring may be a small business, but you can be certain you will get the service, care, and attention to detail that you need and deserve.

HomeAdvisorHomewood Carpet & Flooring has been in business for ten years, but Foo Shunnarah is no stranger to the Birmingham area. Born and raised in Vestavia Hills, Foo grew up watching and eventually working side-by-side with his father in their family's businesses. Foo's parents, Fred and Samira, owned grocery stores and other small businesses in the Birmingham area which ingrained in him the spirit of hard work, customer service, and entrepreneurship. In 2006, he decided to take a chance and follow his dreams of becoming an entrepreneur and floor covering seemed to be an ideal fit. "It has been my pleasure walking into people's homes, meeting their families and kids, and servicing a basic need that brings joy to their everyday life. I just hope they have gotten as much satisfaction from their experience as I have with mine. The past ten years has been a humbling experience. I just want to say thank you."

If you wonder what sets Homewood Carpet & Flooring apart from other retailers, Foo explains it's not price and it's not really flooring, it's service and customer satisfaction. "I think people want to partner with us because we make it about them. I never go into someone's home or consult with a prospective customer with an agenda except to find a floor they want at a price they can afford. In the end, most people are happy. And your shopping experience is personalized. We don't rush through anything."

Homewood Carpet & Flooring offers the finest selection of hardwood, tile & stone, carpet, luxury vinyl plank, laminate, herringbone tile.  We are proud to partner with a wide variety of flooring manufacturers including Shaw Floors. Some of their products we offer are Anso Nylon, ClearTouch with R2X stain and soil protection, LifeGuard waterproof carpet backing, and St. Jude Carpet Cushion.

Our slogan is Foo and You because Foo is your single point of contact from walk-in or in home estimate to post installation.  We do have an expert team of installers, but Foo will be your consultant from beginning to end.
