Is hardwood flooring a good investment?
Are you thinking about replacing your flooring with hardwood? Do you want to know if it’s a good investment? If you now have carpet in your home, we can tell you that home buyers around the country prefer hardwood floors. You need to decide whether hardwood floors are right for all the rooms of your house, and also what kind of hardwood to install to create the best resale value.
When thinking about making the change to hardwood floors, you will need to evaluate these factors: your budget, the preferences in your community, and your own personal taste in flooring.
People who have allergies are often looking for hardwood floors that won’t hold dust and other allergens. Also consider that hardwood flooring lasts longer than carpet, is easier to keep clean, and can be refinished when necessary.
Once you have decided to have hardwood installed, you have to choose what type of hardwood to use. In some areas you’ll find that homeowners prefer traditional oak floors, while other residents are having their wood floors stained in different colors. You will also find other trends such as using wider planks and the use of hand-scraped wood. Other more exotic wood species are favored by some homeowners.
Ultimately, your decision should be based on your personal preference, especially if you intend to stay in your home for any amount of time. When you decide it’s time to have hardwood floors installed, let Day Flooring Company help. We offer you great advice and superior service.
