How affordable is hardwood flooring?

Hardwood floors are cost-effective, especially when you look at the overall picture. This is in addition to the myriad benefits, including style, durability, easy upkeep, and property value-adding.

Two ways they become lucrative

1.They last for decades. We've even heard of cases where wood floors lasted up to 100 years. 

That means little or no replacement costs. When the floors look worn, dull, or excessively scratched, refinishing is usually all it takes to bring them back to luster.

2.They provide the highest ROI of any flooring. You’ll see 70% to 80% of the initial cost of hardwood added to your property values.  

What’s more, if you’re planning to sell, prospective buyers will often pay up to 2.5% more for a home with wood floors in good condition. Not to mention the visual appeal alone makes them sell faster and easier. 

The allure of wood flooring

No one can dispute wood's natural beauty. These floors add warmth and charm to any area and often become the centerpiece of a room.

They come in various species, stains, finishes, and textures. So be sure to visit our showroom and explore our inventory while shopping for hardwood flooring in Woodstock. You'll see woods like Color Strip by Somerset or Lake Ridge by Palmetto Road. 


Wood flooring, especially when a  quality finish is used, is durable. Be mindful, however, that some hardwoods are harder than others. Let us know if you have extra durability needs.

Easy care

Dust or dry mop several times weekly to keep dust and soil from embedding and scratching. Vacuum once a week to pick up what dust mopping left behind.  

Clean and polish it every two months. Most importantly, wipe spills immediately.
