Why is hardwood flooring so popular?

No one can doubt the allure of wood flooring with its natural beauty, grain patterns, and distinctive features like knots, swirls, and growth rings. These floors are elegant, classic and add warmth and charm to your home. You can expect this from both solid hardwood flooring and its counterpart, engineered wood floors.

They are versatile enough to work with any decor and, with the wide assortment of stains, you can make them as light or dark as you want when it's time to change; just sand and stain them another color. So feel free to come into our hardwood flooring company, and we’ll be happy to tell you more.

Enduring appeal that also makes them cost-effective

Both solid and engineered wood last for decades and, when they start to look worn, dull, or excessively scratched, all it takes is sanding and refinishing to bring them back to their original luster. That translates to no replacement costs, so you can say they end up paying for themselves.

Wood floors increase property values

You’ll see this in two ways: First, 70% to 80% of the cost of either solid or engineered floors is reflected in your property values; theoretically, a home once valued at $300K would become worth $315 or more.

Second, if you're thinking of selling, we're told by real estate sales associates around the country that buyers will often pay up to 2.5% more for a home with wood floors, not to mention the visual appeal makes them sell faster!

Easy maintenance

Luxury doesn't always translate to high maintenance. Whether solid or engineered, dry mop or sweep with a soft broom, preferably daily, so the sand doesn't embed and scratch. Damp-mop periodically with a wood cleaner and wipe spills immediately. Employ some everyday routines, such as placing mats strategically at entrances, keeping pet nails trimmed, and using protective furniture pads.
