How long will hardwood flooring last?

Wood flooring has many great attributes that make homeowners prefer the material when at all possible. One of those attributes is an extensive lifespan, and we’re going to tell you more about that in today’s post, so read along to find out how long you can expect to keep your flooring in place.

Expect years of service from your wood flooring


Engineered hardwood is made by perpendicularly layering plywood backing and attaching a veneer of natural hardwood. This is topped with a wear layer, so the flooring offers long-lasting durability and outstanding benefits, with a lifespan of about 30 years.

If you choose solid hardwood flooring, you'll find the same beautiful appearance availability and performance, but with a lifespan that can easily exceed 100 years or more, as you might have seen in historical buildings from centuries ago. In addition, these floors get better with age, exceptionally when cared for properly and regularly.

Picking hardwood for your floors means you may never again have to shop for nor install a floor covering, which makes it an affordable choice over time. Never attempt to cut corners and forsake a professional installation, as this is a fantastic way to protect your investment and ensure the longest possible lifespan.
