When Are Your Current Hardwood Floors Worth Saving?

Wood flooring is beautiful, natural, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, long-lasting, and a sign of quality in a home. Old hardwood floors offer the extra allure of charm and history, but the years often show. The question, then, is when should you salvage old hardwood flooring or just replace it? It really comes down to a matter of preference. If you don’t mind a bit of “character,” you can refinish your old hardwood floor and make it come alive again. However, homeowners who have old floors should not expect them to look brand-new. There is also the question of the floor’s structural integrity and condition. For example, floors with extreme movement between the boards are not good candidates for refinishing. Also, if it’s laminate floor, there may not be a thick enough wear-layer to sand and refinish.”
