The Value of Upgrading to Hardwood Flooring

Breakfast Nook

Building or remodeling your home requires you to make important decisions about design and materials. Hardwood flooring is a worthwhile investment because of its durability, beauty, eco-friendliness, and much more. Whether you are just starting to build or have been considering upgrading your flooring, hardwood is the right choice.

Efficacy and Economic Value

Once installed, hardwood floors are easy to clean and maintain. Most can be sanded and refinished if they become scratched or damaged. While hardwood may be more expensive than some other options available today, you’ll thank yourself for having improved your home’s resale value in the future. In addition, unlike other flooring types, hardwood is naturally enduring and can last for centuries.

Aesthetic Advantages

Hardwood flooring options range from local woods, such as oak and pine, to exotic specialty woods with unique colors and patterns. Choosing flooring that is rich in color can add an aesthetically pleasing look to your home. There are unlimited combinations of finishes and stains that you can apply to get the perfect look to suit your home’s décor.

Environmental Benefits

Hardwood floors offer a variety of environmental benefits both inside and outside your home. Using hardwood flooring instead of carpeting and other more porous surfaces can help you maintain better air quality inside your home, as there will be less trapped allergens and irritants. Another environmental benefit is that the net growth of the hardwoods used for flooring is greater than their net removal in the United States. The hardwood flooring creation process also requires less energy and water than the creation of other flooring types.
