Why Choose Hardwood as your Flooring?

July 2, 2014 CCHWFinc The Los Angeles Flooring Contractors Blog

Many clients of ours have come in our North Hollywood Showroom, looked around, marveled at the sight of beautiful hardwood flooring, and asked why they should install hardwood floors in their homes and offices. Every time I give the same response “Because it’s the best”. Of course, I elaborate further on the topic, but the answer is enough to justify installing hardwood floors. It really is the best, in all aspects. Here I’ll delineate just a few aspects of what make hardwood flooring superior to carpet, tile, or marble.

There are always two sides to every story, and hardwood is no exception.

The benefits are both financial and aesthetic, both equally important. To start off we’ll examine the financial benefits. Firstly, hardwood floors provide some of the highest ROI rate of all home improvement projects. ROI is “return-on-investment”, which means the amount you put in directly affects the amount you get back when/if you decide to sell the property. In the case of hardwood floors, the rate can be anywhere from 1.5 to 2, meaning you can usually get up to twice your initial investment when you sell your property. Tile can’t even reach 1. Along with this, is the durability of hardwood floors. The average, newly-installed floors usually last an average of 20 years. That’s two decades, longer if you properly maintain your floors. Not only do they last longer, when they get worn out instead of replacing them completely, they can simply be refinished. Refinishing is much cheaper than replacing them and the floors will look like they were installed yesterday.

Want to revive your floors?  Refinish’em! You can’t do that with carpet or marble.

As for the aesthetic benefits, there are even more. Hardwood floors are consistently ranked as some of the best, if not the best, looking floors anybody can have in their property. Carpet can get moldy, tile and marble can crack, but hardwood remains great-looking all throughout its lifespan. Hardwood floors can also be stained and colored to match any style or design element you wish due to our custom color matching and staining service we provide. In addition to the style accents, hardwood floors are also safer and healthier for your family or associates. Hardwood floors inhibit the growth of fungus and microbes, and will not harbor them like carpet so commonly does. Not only is it healthier, but certain species of hardwood are also hypoallergenic, for any that might have allergies. Accidents on hardwood are also not as bad as they are on tile or marble. The hardwood will bend and reduce the impact, and will not break. Last but not least, hardwood floors are easy to maintain. They require very little in the way of specialized attention, and need only very little cleaning each day.

There’s no reason why you shouldn’t get hardwood flooring.

With all these benefits, it’s easy to see why people choose to install hardwood as their floor choice.
