The value of hardwood floors

Raise your hand if you like money, because that’s exactly what you’ll get when you install hardwood floors.

Whether it’s solid or engineered, it will add value to your home. First, a hardwood floor will let you recoup 70% to80% of your investment. That means if the pre-floor value of your home was $200,000, it can be $214,000 or $216,000 after the floor is installed.Second, if you are selling, buyers will often pay 2.5 % -plus and ask for a home with wood flooring. That’s several thousand more dollars in your pocket.

The reason hardwood floors add so much value is not only because of the visual appeal, although that could be reason enough, but because they work with any decor, from the most traditional to contemporary and even California Beach. They will also last for years; by some reports, up to 100, if taken care of properly.

Hardwood floors add a beauty and warmth to any home that is hard to match by any other type of floor covering. Never out of fashion, hardwood floors add real value to the home. With proper maintenance, these floors can last a lifetime! This can make the price over the life of the product very economical.

Manufacturing of hardwood floors has improved dramatically over the years and today’s hardwood floors are more durable and adaptable to different types of living areas within the home. Today’s hardwood floors come in a much wider selection of colors, wood species, and widths. Besides the classic North American hardwoods (like red oak, white oak, maple and ash) many manufacturers now offer exotic hardwood species from all over the world. Exotic hardwoods allow homeowners the chance to better express their own personal decorating tastes with a more unique looking floor.

Some things you should know about hardwood

1. There are two kinds, and both are very much real wood. Solid means it’s one species all the way through. Engineered is a layered product of real wood with other materials.Some people do prefer engineered, because of its stability and better moisture resistance. It’s also more budget-friendly.

2. Solid wood can be damaged by water and moisture. Therefore, it’s never recommended for use in bathrooms, laundry rooms, or anywhere water and moisture accumulate.Engineered has better water-resistance, so it can be installed in more places, but it still shouldn’t be used in flood-prone rooms or submerged in water.

  • Both have a large assortment of species, colors and patterns.
  • Both can be refinished and sanded.
  • Both are easy to care for. Wipe up spills immediately and mop with a soft cloth several times a week. Apply every day, common-sense rules, such as placing mats strategically at entrances and in front of sinks, as well as using pads for furniture “feet.”We all know how stylish hardwood is, but thanks to Mother Nature, each plank is unique; no two trees are ever alike.
