You've probably heard it over 100 times that hardwood flooring is one of the best investments you can ever make in your house. There's no doubt that few floor types offer the warmth and inviting atmosphere that hardwood flooring brings. Plus the material, whether light like pine or dark like mahogany, looks perfect in anything from a den to a kitchen to bedrooms to living rooms to hallways. The simple answer to why hardwood flooring boosts value is, “because it's good” but there are some specifics behind this reasoning.
Long Life Span
One reason that wood flooring legitimately boosts the resale value of your home is because it is something that doesn't have to be worried about. A potential buyer may have anxiety over an HVAC system approaching 20 years or windows that aren't energy savers but a floor is 'set it and forget it' in a way that they usually last 40-50 years or more. If the floor is showing signs of age it can be sanded and refinished for a relatively minimal cost.
Durability and Appreciation
The San Antonio, TX market is flooded with buyers that have multiple kids and pets. Some flooring types (carpet, laminate) are going to be turnoffs. While a hardwood floor can be scratched and damaged it offers some of the best durability this side of stone. Plus, some of that natural wear and tear actually adds to the allure of an antique wooden floor similar to a worn pair of jeans.
Matches Any Style and Color Can Be Changed
Even the most finicky style coordinators know that hardwood floors are the jeans of the flooring industry – it matches virtually everything. Plus since most hardwood planks can be sanded and restained a new buyer has the option of creating a color that is more cleansing to their style palate.
Easy to Maintain / Improves Air Quality
While it's important to clean up spills in a timely manner for the most part hardwood is maintenance free requiring nothing more than a swiffer mop. This easy maintenance also prevents dust, dander, and allergens from accumulating which makes for better air-quality in homes inhabited by allergy sufferers.
As you can see hardwood flooring is not only a wise investment for the here and now, it's also an installation that increases value and has benefits for years down the line as well.
