Remodeling projects are a great way to add value to a home and, when it comes to flooring, hardwood is your best bet. First, you’ll recover 70 to 80 percent (and sometimes it goes as high as 100%) of the initial cost, reflected in your property values. In short, a home with an original value of $400K could become $420 or higher after installation.

Potential buyers often pay more

Real estate agents around the country tell the staff at our hardwood flooring company that potential buyers often pay up to 2.5% more for a house with wood floors, not to mention the visual appeal alone makes the home sell faster and easier. Why? Solid hardwood flooring is constructed from 100 percent solid lumber and then cut and shaped into a specific thickness, width, and grain pattern. This results in a beautiful, distinctive floor unique only to you; you'll never see the same floor in someone else's home.

You'll see the eyes widen when buyers (or anyone, for that matter) see wood flooring. It is classic, timeless, and has the versatility to fit into any decor. They last for decades (sometimes up to 100 years) and, unless there is structural damage, all that's needed to bring them back to their original luster is refinishing.

Easy to keep clean

Just dust mop, sweep with a soft broom, or vacuum without beater bars ( rotating brushes). Wipe spills immediately, put mats strategically in front of sinks and entrances, keep pet nails trimmed, avoid wearing stilettos on the floor, and use protective furniture pads to avoid scratches.
