Tips to determine if hardwood flooring is for you

Tips to determine if hardwood flooring is for you

If you’re in the market for new floors, you owe it to yourself to consider wood flooring. It has an allure like no other.

It also has countless benefits, but you may still wonder if it's right for you. Here are some smart tips that may help you decide.

Ask yourself: Do you want to add value to your property?

You'll see 70% to 80% of the cost of wood floors reflected in your home assessment. So theoretically, one worth $400K could become $415K or more.

Potential buyers often pay up to 2.5% for a home with wood floors if you plan to sell. That's the case whether it's engineered or solid hardwood flooring.

Think about the life span

Flooring is a significant investment in your home. But, unfortunately, it's also not something we often buy, so you'll want it to look great and perform well for years.

Unless structural damage, such as termites, solid and engineered hardwood will last for decades.
Consider the budget's overall picture

Lifespan's a significant consideration here. Usually, all it takes to bring the floors back to their original luster is refinishing–not replacement!
