Do hardwood floors add value to a home?

This question about wood flooring is one we get a lot. Wood flooring can add considerable value to your home, especially in more than one room. So let's talk about it.

Wood flooring is a valuable asset to your home

One of the factors about wood flooring, specifically solid hardwood flooring, is its lifespan. This can easily exceed 100 years or more. You can see proof of this in any historical building. The better a hardwood floor is maintained, the longer it will last. Homebuyers appreciate that aspect of hardwood.

Engineered hardwood can also add value to your home. They can last 30 or more years in lifespan. They share similar looks to solid hardwood flooring. Best of all, they can withstand moisture to a higher level than solid hardwood. So they can go into basements and other rooms with a higher degree of humidity than usual.

The fantastic visuals of hardwood can be refinished and renewed every few decades thanks to the refinishing process. A professional team can come in and make your floors “new” again. This is a feature that you can offer home buyers to sell your house. The "new" floors will appeal to the buyers, and it will mean that they won’t have to update the floors anytime soon.


ROI, Return on Investment, is a sure thing with wood flooring. The reason is there is mass appeal and demand for wood flooring. The vast majority of potential homeowners see wood floors as a luxury. It doesn't matter what style you have or choose; hardwood will add warmth and value to your home. In the real estate market, wood homes are highly prized and valued. They promise elegance and style.
