Does hardwood flooring last a long time?

Does hardwood flooring last a long time?

Wood flooring has a natural beauty, adding warmth and charm to any space. These floors also come with countless benefits, such as long life spans.

Solid has been known to last for around 100 years. Engineered wood flooring can last up to 50 years.

Why we say they’re cost-effective

There are few, if any, replacement costs. Unless there's structural damage, such as termites, it usually takes a refinishing to bring them back to luster. Most scratches are in the stain, not the wood.

This is true whether it’s engineered or solid hardwood flooring. Remember that excess water and moisture can damage solid wood floors. Keep them dry!

Easy to take care of

Dry mop regularly and vacuum periodically—clean and polish every few months.

Also, employ some everyday cautions. For example, wipe spills immediately, placing mats strategically.

Keep pet nails trimmed and use protective furniture pads. That's it! If you have additional questions, please speak to an expert at our hardwood flooring company.

Other benefits include:

  1. Style: With the wide assortment of stains and finishes, you can customize them to suit your decor. When it's time for a change, sand and re-stain them.
  2. Real estate value adding: Whether solid or engineered, you'll recoup 70% to 80%, as seen as an increase in your property values. Potential buyers often pay more for homes with wood flooring, not to mention they sell faster and easier.
