If you’re unsure why hardwood floors are the right choice for your house, here are some reasons why they’re great.
Why Hardwood Floors?
There are 3 simple reasons to choose hardwood floors over alternatives like carpet or tile.
1) They’re durable and last a lifetime
Hardwood floors can last a lifetime before needing to be replaced. Since the hardwood is so durable, hardwood floors can be recoated and refinished multiple times before they need to be replaced entirely. That means they are ideal for homes that get a lot of foot traffic. Hardwood floors are perfect for families with lots of children and/or dogs!

2) They’re easy to clean and maintenance free
Hardwood floors are among the easiest flooring types to clean. They can be mopped clean without issues, especially if they’re finished properly. You don’t even need any cleaner fluid! A hardwood floor just needs to be swept and lightly mopped with water. Don’t use too much water though, a lightly damp mop or cloth is all that’s needed.
A good finish on a hardwood floor is crucially important. Not only does it make them look amazing, it also prevents dirt and grime from getting in between the seams.
3) They add value to your house
Simply put, people love real wood floors! No wonder, they look amazing. They’ll make your house more valuable and attractive if you ever intend on selling it. The durability also lowers the chance of your floor getting damaged or needing maintenance, making it even more attractive for potential buyers.
Why Should I Refinish My Hardwood Floor?
If you already have a hardwood floor, it might be time to recoat or refinish it. Recoating a floor is simply adding a new polyurethane layer, refinishing it involves sanding the whole floor before recoating it. Refinishing a floor brings it new life, making it shine like it did when it was new! A newly refinished floor makes the whole house seem clean and bright.
How do I know if it’s time to refinish my hardwood floor?
If your floor seems impossible to get clean, the chances are it’s not because it’s dirty, it’s because it needs to be refinished. Scratches and roughness is another clear indicator that it just might be time to refinish your floor.

Alternative Flooring Options
We don’t do just hardwood floors! We also install laminate floors as an alternative to hardwood. Sometimes referred to as “fake” hardwood flooring, laminate flooring is a great option for those who want a beautiful, durable floor at a cheaper cost. Laminate is very hard and very resilient to scratching. It can also go over any floor, making the installation time faster than real hardwood floors. The downside of laminate is that is can’t be refinished. If it get’s damaged, it needs to be replaced entirely.
