Restoring your hardwood floor. Is there a better reveal than peeling back old carpet only to discover hidden hardwood flooring? Or perhaps, you’ve already got a hardwood floor. Either way, there’s a tendency to think hardwood floors cost money.
“It’s cheaper just to carpet over the floor.” That couldn’t be more wrong.
Not only is a hardwood floor a beautiful addition to any home. It also can save you a lot of money in the long run. How? Well, that’s what we’re here to discuss.
So, if you’ve got an old hardwood floor: here’s why restoring it may be the best option for your bottom line.
The hardwood floor is already down
There’s a substantial benefit to discovering a hardwood floor. It’s already been laid. No pricey fitting is required. No new materials. The upfront investment cost is wholly unnecessary. In that sense, you’ve saved money from the moment you find the hardwood floor.
Now, it’s just a matter of restoring it to its former glory.
The alternative is to cover it up with carpet or another flooring. That’s pricey, but it also hides one of your property chief assets.
Adds value to the property
Have you heard the old saying: you’ve got to spend money to make money? The logic is simple: by investing in your property, you raise the property value.
That’s no truer than for hardwood floors.
Highly desirable these days, a hardwood floor can raise a room to the next level. It can give your property a more substantial, high-value feel. All it takes is a little investment to get the boards looking as fresh as the day they were laid.
The longer you leave it…
…the worse the damage gets. Restoring your hardwood floor now is the safest option. Over time, under the carpet, the hardwood floor may continue to degrade. Sooner or later – if you’re staying in the property – you’re going to want to fix up the floors. Why not now?
That way, you’ll get to enjoy your hardwood floors while still saving money long-term.
Hardwood floors last
Carpets need to be replaced once every few years. That’s without any stains or expensive carpet cleaning. Hardwood floors, on the other hand, are built to last. When carefully sanded, coated, stained, and refinished, a hardwood floor will last years: decades even.
That’s the ultimate cost-saver.
Not only do you add value to your property, but you also reduce any annual costs. You can simply sit back, relax, and admire your stunning restored hardwood floor.
