Wood floors come with countless benefits, one of them being a long lifespan. Solid hardwood flooring has been known to last up to 100 years, while the engineered version has a life of almost 50 years. Both options can be refinished throughout their lives, meaning your century-old floors can still look like new with proper care and maintenance.
Contrary to popular belief, hardwood flooring can actually be fairly easy to care for. While it's essential to always clean up any spills immediately, regular cleaning only requires sweeping and mopping with a hardwood floor cleaner. Using the right product is essential, as they will contain oils that add life and durability to your floors.
Value-add to your home
Hardwood flooring is going to add the most value to your home out of most flooring options. Homeowners often recoup 70% to 80% of the cost, as reflected in a property assessment. This means a residence, once valued at $200K could become worth $212K or more, while potential buyers will often pay up to 2.5% more for a home with wood floors.
Other hardwood flooring benefits include:
1. Natural beauty: And keep in mind that, with the large assortment of stains and finishes, you can make the floors as light or dark as you wish.
2. Versatility: Hardwood flooring works with any decor, including traditional, transitional, rustic, contemporary, urban modern, California coastal, and more. There's no need to replace the floors when you remodel them because you can sand them and stain them another color.
3. Durability. Some of the hardest hardwoods, such as white oak, hickory, acacia, maple, walnut, and bamboo, all of which can be found at our company, are ultra-hard and can easily withstand wear and tear and dents.
