Installation Considerations: While tile work is difficult type of flooring to install, it can be quite labor intensive. Additionally, it is difficult to fix mistakes if you place a tile incorrectly. At Bayfield, our expert installers will work with you to get the installation plan best for your home and budget.
Choose hardwood flooring for a timeless look that suits any decor. Available in both engineered and solid wood styles, we offer expert installation from our experienced floor installers. Barrie area residents can count on fast, efficient, and competitively priced hardwood flooring and labor.
Installation Considerations: Hardwood flooring installation is not recommended as a DIY project since preparing the flooring, adhering it to the subfloor, and cutting the planks to size all take experience to do correctly.
Vinyl plank and tile floor installation is among the easiest for those who want to DIY their flooring. Each vinyl plank or tile has a rigid core that keeps the piece flat unlike sheet vinyl which can be a bit more difficult to work with.
Installation Considerations: Vinyl plank and tile flooring is installed as a floating floor meaning it is not attached to the subfloor beneath. Instead, each piece connects to each other with interlocking grooves. Choose vinyl plank flooring as a more affordable and easier to install alternative to hardwood flooring. This is one of the few flooring types that is relatively easy to install on your own. The only special equipment you will need is a saw to cut pieces to fit around the shape of your room.
Not up for installing your own? Our installation team can efficiently install your new vinyl floor, helping you avoid the potential frustrations of measuring and cutting pieces incorrectly.

Laminate flooring offers the ultimate in lookalike hardwood alternatives. Like plank and tile vinyl, laminate has an image layer that replicates the look of hardwood. However, printing quality and texture give laminate the advantage over vinyl for achieving a realistic wood look.
Installation Considerations: Laminate works in most areas of your home but it can be vulnerable to moisture. While it can stand up to use in a living room, bedroom, or home office with ease, it should be used with caution in a kitchen. Mudrooms, bathrooms, and laundry rooms are not recommended places for this type of flooring.
Plush carpet adds instant warmth and noise reduction to any room. Keep cold floors comfortable throughout the year and minimize the sound of a creaking subfloor. Carpet works best in low to moderate foot traffic areas like bedrooms and living rooms. For higher traffic areas, more durable Berber or sisal carpet is preferred.
Sheet vinyl has many of the same benefits as plank and tile vinyl but is available in large sheets versus individual planks. This type of flooring is very budget friendly and available in patterned and solid colors along with faux wood and tile finish.
Installation Considerations: Sheet vinyl, unlike plank vinyl pieces, is not recommended as a DIY project. Though it is much easier than hardwood installation, it can be a finicky process. The subfloor must be extremely smooth and level to avoid any bumps from showing through. It is also easy to ruin a sheet of vinyl by cutting it incorrectly.
