Why Hardwood Floors?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Health benefits

Hardwood floors improve the air quality inside your home. They do not harbor allergens or harmful pesticides that can be tracked from outside. Dust and mold are minimal also, which allows for hardwood floors to be a healthy flooring option.

Environmentally beneficial

Hardwood floors are a renewable flooring option since trees can be replanted to replace the ones that were harvested. In the US, for every tree that is harvested, another 1.66 is planted. Because wood floors can last for decades, they require fewer raw materials, and produce less landfill waste (unlike other flooring options).

Durability

Hardwood floors can stand up to busy lifestyles of today’s families, and will continue to look beautiful for decades. The Janka Scale, which measures hardness of wood species, gives you an indication of how wood floors are expected to perform.

Competitive benefits

Homes that have hardwood floors sell faster and for more money than homes without it. Wood floors offer your home long-term value that other flooring options cannot.
