How do hardwood floors add real estate value?
First, you’ll recoup 70% to 80% of the cost of wood flooring, whether it's engineered or solid, as seen in the price of your home. So theoretically, a house that was once worth $200K could become $215 or more after installing new wood floors. In addition, if you are planning to sell, we're told that buyers will often pay 2.5% more for a home with hardwood.
What do you mean–engineered?
There are two versions of hardwood. The first is solid hardwood flooring which can be damaged by excess water and moisture. Engineered wood floors are real wood and give natural beauty with undertones, knots, grains, and swirls. However, they have a different construction, making them more stable and better able to handle water and moisture in floors that can be placed in higher-than-normal moisture areas.
To learn more, feel free to visit our hardwood flooring company, where we have an assortment of planks and strips in various textures and finishes from brands like Bruce, Elegance, Chesapeake, Mannington, and more. ( Pssst, we also have a lot of other types of flooring.)
1. Long life span. Both solid and engineered wood look and perform well for decades and can be refinished to return the floors to their original luster when they start to look worn or scratched. That translates to no replacement costs unless there's structural damage
2. Versatility. These floors work with any decor, from the most traditional to contemporary and more. If you need a color change, that's easy with just sanding and staining.
3. Easy maintenance. Dry mop or regularly sweep (daily, preferred) and clean periodically with a mop dampened with a wood cleaner. Wipe spills immediately, use protective furniture pads, and put mats strategically.
