Hardwood Floors : Investing in your home

When renovating your home it’s important to consider the return on investment for any improvements you may be completing on your home. Upgrading your flooring to hardwood floors is one of the best ways to increase the value of your home. Hardwood Floors were recently named by Consumer Reports as one of the top eight ways to boost the value of a home.

Upgrading to hardwood flooring is attributed to raising the value of homes by 3-5%.

One of the main benefits to upgrading to hardwood from other floor covering options such as carpet, wpc, and laminate is the durability and longevity. An investment in hardwood floors is an investment for the life of your home as they are durable, and can be refinished if necessary- hardwood floors can last a lifetime. Hardwood floors are desirable by home buyers as they are attractive, hypoallergenic and long wearing.

According to HGTV, one of the top requests by potential home buyers when searching for a new home is hardwood floors. In another study by USA Today  54% of home buyers were willing to pay more for a home that features hardwood floors. Hardwood floors are available in solid and engineered construction to fit every grade and budget. Visit your local retailer of Mullican Flooring to find your new floors!
