Why is hardwood flooring so cost-effective?

Hardwood floors have a natural beauty that’s so timeless they never go out of style. Even the updates are tried-and-true.

Take herringbone. It's a current trend, but it's been around for decades. That means what you get today will be just as popular 25 years from now.

Here are two good reasons why hardwood flooring should be considered cost-effective.

Hardwood floors last decades

And that's one of the things that make them so cost-effective. Solid hardwood flooring has been known to last up to 100 years. Engineered floors can last more than 30 years. Unless there's structural damage, refinishing will do the trick.

Hardwood floors won't likely need any costly repairs or premature replacement.

Wood floors increase your property values

Wood floors have the highest ROI of any flooring. Whether solid or engineered, you'll see 70% or more of the initial price reflected in your property values.

What's more, if you plan to sell, know that potential buyers often pay up to 2.5% more for a home with wood floors.

Other reasons to love hardwood floors include:

  1. Versatility. Hardwood floors work with any design.  

When you need to change sand and stain another color, you can go from dark to light with your hardwood flooring in Woodstock.

  1. They are easy to care for. Who says luxury has to be high maintenance?

Dust mop regularly so sand won’t embed between the planks and scratch. Vacuum once a week to get anything the dust mop misses.

Clean and polish a few times a year and use everyday precautions. These include wiping spills immediately, placing mats and entrances, and using protective furniture pads when necessary.
