Do hardwood floors add value to a home?

Whether you choose engineered or solid hardwood flooring, one of the best attributes of the material line is the extensive value these products can add to your home. Whether you want to add outstanding equity to your home or you're planning to sell, these materials will give a great result on your investment.

What makes wood flooring so valuable?

Both engineered, and solid materials provide lifespans that could mean you'll never have to replace your flooring again. Engineered products can easily reach 30 years of life, while solid wood often lasts 100 years or more when properly maintained.

The lifespan comes primarily from the extensive durability these floors have to offer. The through-body construction of solid materials offers outstanding durability and functionality. In contrast, engineered construction consists of layers of plywood topped with a veneer of natural wood for great below-grade placement.

The refinishing process also adds significant value, as it works to strip away years of wear and restore your finish to a like-new state. You can refinish both products several times, but the number of times you can refinish engineered flooring depends primarily on the thickness of the real-wood veneer. If you’d like to know more about the value these floors can instill in your home, visit us today.
