Hardwood flooring facts and benefits

With its outstanding appearance and its very long lifespan, it’s no wonder that hardwood flooring adds such value to your home. The more rooms you install it in, the more valuable your home becomes, in more ways than one. Not only does it provide a stable and durable foundation for you and the residents of your home, but it also saves money in the long run, since you may never have to replace it.

What’s more, once you begin to notice signs of wear, when other homeowners would consider reflooring their homes, you can call us for hardwood refinishing instead. This project works by stripping away layers of damaged flooring, bringing it back to a like-new finish quickly. At this time, you might also choose to change your finish type or your stain color for a look that’s a bit different, or to match a new decor scheme.

It’s important to remember that solid hardwood flooring should never be installed in basements or any other below-grade space in your home. For these rooms, your flooring specialist can assist you in finding an excellent alternative, such as engineered flooring, laminate, or even wood-look luxury vinyl flooring.
