Do hardwood floors add value to a home?

Wood flooring has many benefits, and the biggest of all is that these floors add value to a property. You'll see this in two ways; first, 70%-80% of the initial cost will be reflected in an increase in real estate values, so a home initially valued at $400K could become worth $418 or more. Second, this is true no matter the version, i.e., engineered or solid hardwood flooring.

Second, we’re told by real estate sales associates around the country that homes with wood floors are in great demand and, in fact, potential buyers often pay 2.5% more.

Versatile enough for any decor

These floors are classic and look as good in a modern urban atmosphere as a traditional one. With the large assortment of stains, it's easy to become lighter or darker to get what you want, and if you decide you need a change, no problem; have them sanded and stained another color. Be sure to talk to your hardwood flooring company professionals to determine suitable options for you.


Take a look at the overall picture.  Wood floors are long-lasting, sometimes by as much as 100 years; unless there's structural damage, all that's needed to bring them back to their original luster is refinishing. That translates to few, if any, replacement costs.

You don't even need to replace them if you decide to change your decor because you have them sanded and then apply another color.

Finally, these floors are low maintenance. Wipe spills right away, especially with solid wood, and sweep or vacuum a few times a week. Then employ some everyday cautions, such as strategically placing mats, using protective furniture pads, keeping pet nails trimmed, and avoiding wearing stilettos on the floor.
