Do hardwood floors add value to a home?

Yes, wood flooring adds value to your property and, if you’re planning to sell anytime in the future, you’ll also see some potential buyer’s eyes widen when they see a home with solid hardwood flooring. Real estate sales associates tell us they'll sometimes pay up to 2.5% more for a home with these floors, not to mention the visual appeal that will make the house sell faster.

How to recoup the price of wood floors

It's easy because you'll automatically increase the price of your home by 80% or more of the cost of hardwood floors. A home valued at $200K can become $216K after the floors are installed.

Other benefits:

1. Versatility enough for any decor. That’s one of the first things you’ll hear when you walk into our hardwood flooring company. There are hundreds of both domestic and exotic species, as well as countless stain hues, so there's something for every decor, from the most traditional to modern, contemporary, coastal, cottage, and more.

2. Long-Lasting beauty. Wood floors last for decades, and some have even been known to endure for 100 years. They often look better with age; for example, Brazilian cherry, known for its blazing red color, darkens and develops patinas over time.

3. Easy care. Wood floors might give your home an elegant, luxurious look, but that doesn't mean it's high-maintenance. The most important thing is to wipe liquid right away but, other than that, vacuum without beater bars (rotating brushes); keep pet nails trimmed; put mats strategically at entrances and in front of sinks, and use protective furniture pads to avoid scratches.
