3 Reasons Why Hardwood is Worth the Expense

When it comes to home improvements, it is common knowledge that changing any flooring to hardwood floors is a great choice. Having hardwood floor throughout your home is one of the top selling features for future buyers. This means that even if you don’t plan on selling, you can bank on building equity in your home. That brings us to our first point. One reason to invest in hardwood floors is because of the equity you will receive in return. Although an added cost when it comes to renovations, it will repay you tenfold. “A USA Today study that uses National Association of Realtors data found that 54% of potential home buyers said that they would be willing to spend more for flooring.” So ditch the carpet and get the hardwood floors. Hardwood floors are also easy to install. This flooring is made in a factory so all of the sanding, staining and the finishing that they do leaves you with only one thing left to do, just install it. This will make installation easy and fast, which is two more reasons why people choose this flooring option. Why else get hardwood flooring in your home? If you aren’t planning on reselling anytime soon, or ever, hardwood floors are still a great choice. Hardwood is one of the most durable flooring types that you can choose. Because hardwood floors have so many finishing coats on top of them they are even more resistant to moisture getting in. Due to the durability of hardwood flooring, you can have it for decades and still keep them looking fresh and new with some sanding and refinishing. “Most prefinished hardwoods have more coats of urethane, but they sometimes are also finished with aluminum oxide, which is an incredibly hard substance that will give the floors even more lifespan.”  It is really the floor that keeps on giving!
