The Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
As you consider your options for flooring, we want to help you take into account the following qualifying factors:
- Longevity – how long do you want your flooring to last before it must be replaced? Hardwood flooring typically lasts a lifetime and can be refinished multiple times before it needs to be replaced.
- Value – hardwood flooring increases the value of your home because of its stability and enduring beauty. Unlike tile or carpet.
- Durability – how much traffic will the flooring typically receive? Hardwood flooring can withstand heavy traffic and still maintain its impressive look.
- Cleaning – how easy do you want to be able to clean the flooring? Hardwood flooring can easily be wiped clean and the finish prevents moisture and debris from seeping into the seams.
- Maintenance – do you want a flooring option that is easy to maintain instead of replacing? More often than not, hardwood flooring can be refinished and resealed instead of replaced.
- Cost – do you want the cheapest flooring option or the best value? Hardwood flooring may initially cost more than alternative flooring options, but lasts a lifetime and can add value to your home.
Alternative Flooring Options
As an alternative to hardwood flooring, you may want to consider laminate flooring or vinyl. These flooring options come in a variety of colors and styles that are often indistinguishable from solid hardwood flooring. Waterproof, durable, and affordable, laminate or vinyl flooring might be the option that best suits your needs.
