Hardwood flooring has been a popular choice for literally hundreds of years.  It has a timeless style, is very attractive and when properly maintained, your hardwood floor can last a long time.  Hardwood floors are also a good investment.

Floor Coverings International Sherwood Park shares 7 benefits to installing hardwood floors in your home:

Hardwood floors increase property value.

Hardwood is not the cheapest option, but it’s quality will increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers if you ever choose to sell.  Your hardwood flooring could even help your home sell faster and at a better price, resulting in a good return on your investment.

Hardwood floors give you plenty to choose from. 

There are a variety of wood species, colours, styles, stains and finishes available.  The wood you choose will have its own natural pattern and you can be sure no one will have the exact same floor as you!  If you are tired of it’s colour, you can choose to refinish it several times.  You can choose from a variety of finishes including oiled, wire brushed, hand scraped, old world finished and many others.  Floor Covering International will help you make a choice that will best suit your needs and style.

Hardwood floors are durable. 

High quality hardwood flooring has been manufactured to stand the test of time.  They are a hard surface, can handle foot traffic and when properly finished they are not easily dented or scratched.  Your hardwood floor is built and installed to last.

Hardwood floors are easy to clean. 

Not only will your hardwood flooring require little maintenance, they will also be a breeze to clean!  Unlike carpet, hard floors do not accumulate as much dirt and dust and they can be easily vacuumed, mopped and spills quickly wiped up.  It’s as easy as that!

Hardwood floors are better for the environment. 

Because they are a natural floor covering, hardwood is an eco-friendly choice.  There are far less chemicals used in manufacturing and old floors will decompose in the landfill.  Since hardwood doesn’t go out of style and is so durable, homeowners rarely replace their hardwood and that reduces the amount of waste as well.

Hardwood floors improve air quality. 

Those who suffer from allergies will find a big difference after installing hardwood floors as they minimize the accumulation of dust allergens.  There are no fibres or grout seams that can trap dust, animal dander, dirt particles and other allergens that might affect your health.

Hardwood Floors are beautiful. 

Walk into the room and you’ll discover the warm and inviting ambiance created by rich, classic hardwood flooring.  Your floors will enhance the style of your furniture, décor and overall appearance of your home.
