Do hardwood floors add value to a home?

Do hardwood floors add value to a home?

Whether you install engineered wood flooring or solid hardwood flooring, you're going to see an increase in your property values. Wood floors come with many benefits, including their allure, easy maintenance, and cost-effectiveness that, for some, make this the obvious choice in flooring.

How you’ll see your ROI
You'll see 70% to 80% of your cost (and some put that amount higher) reflected in your home's value. So theoretically, a home valued at $300K could become worth $315K or more. You'll also see it if you're planning to sell because real estate sales associates around the country tell us that buyers will often pay 2.5% more for a home with wood floors, not to mention the visual appeal makes the home sell faster and easier.

Other benefits include:
1. Style: Hardwood floors have a natural beauty with features like knots, grains, and swirls, not to mention the gorgeous undertones that add distinction. They're also available in several stains and textures to put on the room's finishing touches.

2. Versatility: These floors work with any decor, from traditional to contemporary, California coastal, and more. Need a color change? Just sand and restain them.

3. Cost-effective: Wood floors last for decades and, unless there's structural damage, all it takes is sanding and refinishing to bring them back to luster. That translates to few, if any, replacement needs!

4. Easy maintenance: All it takes is a daily dry mopping of sweeping with a soft broom, a weekly vacuuming, and cleaning and polishing periodically. Solid hardwood significantly can be damaged by excess water so wipe spills immediately. Other than that, employ some everyday routines, such as placing mats at entrances and using protective furniture pads to avoid scratching.
