Do hardwood floors add value to my home?

Do hardwood floors add value to my home?

The natural beauty of wood flooring is something no one can dispute; it adds warmth, charm, and elegance to any space. Moreover, these floors have countless benefits, one of them being that they will add value to your property in two ways.

How to factor hardwood’s ROI

Whether you choose engineered or solid hardwood flooring, you will recoup 70-80% of the initial purchase price, as reflected in your home value. Therefore, a home that was once valued at $300K could become valued at $315K or more.

Are you planning to sell anytime in the future? We’re also told by real estate sales associates around the country that prospective buyers often pay up to 2.5% more for a home with wood floors.

Long-lasting allure

You will have hundreds of wood species from which to choose, whether you want the dramatic look of exotic woods, such as Brazilian cherry, tigerwood, ebony, or the rich traditionalism of domestics, such as the ever-popular oak, hickory, as, walnut or maple. These floors are versatile to fit into any decor.

There’s a wide assortment of stains, planks, and strips. Wide planks are currently trending, and, at our hardwood flooring company, we have sizes as wide as 12-inches and as narrow as five inches; you can also ask us about random width planks.

Why do we call it "long-lasting allure?" That's because it lasts for decades, sometimes up to 100 years, which translates to little or no replacement costs, making wood flooring a cost-effective option.

Who says luxury has to be high maintenance? Hardwood floors need daily sweeping or dry dust mopping and periodic damp mopping with a wood cleaner. Employ some common, everyday strategies, such as using mats and protective furniture pads, wiping spills immediately, keeping pet nails trimmed, and avoid wearing stilettos on the floors.

Hardwood flooring is classic and offers good value, especially when you look at the overall picture.
