When it comes to renovation in your home, you’ll want to choose options that add value to your property so you’re not sinking money into something that won’t pay you back later. It’s no secret that hardwood flooring fits this bill, which is why so many homeowners have it installed in their homes.
While it’s true that hardwood flooring increases your home’s resale value and that it looks good, these aren’t always reason enough to choose it. After all, a swimming pool can add value to your home, but it also requires constant, costly upkeep which will cost you time and money.
If you’re on the fence about hardwood flooring as you don’t want to commit yourself to something that will become a burden at a later stage, here’s why it’s will outlast most other flooring types as a low maintenance flooring option.
Long Term Durability
Hardwood flooring offers long term durability and can last a lifetime if installed correctly. While the exact timeframe varies from one property to another, it usually lasts longer than the time you’ll inhabit a home – outlasting other flooring choices such as tiles and carpeting.
Treated hardwood floors are incredibly low maintenance. Unlike carpets, they don’t stain or mark, and unlike tiles, they’re unlikely to chip or crack. This means that if you keep them clean, they shouldn’t create much work for you to do on a month to month basis.
Refinish Instead Of Replace
Should you damage all or part of your hardwood flooring (which is difficult to do), you’ll only need to refinish it rather than replace it to make it look brand new again. The same “good as new” look from another flooring type is usually only achieved by complete removal and replacement.
If you are considering hardwood flooring as a solution for your home, office or any other space, you can rest assured that it will pay its value back in dividends and that in the time that you enjoy it, it won’t add to your bills or stress levels either.
