REAL WOOD FLOORS: WHY CHOOSE AN NWFA MEMBER?
by the National Wood Flooring Association
WOOD FLOORING: A Solid Investment
For most people, their homes represent their largest single
investment. Whether you have been in your home for decades, or
weeks, the money you spend to improve your home is an
investment in your future, so it is important that you research your
options carefully to get the most value for your money.
When it comes to choosing flooring for your home, there is no
doubt that real wood floors offer the best long-term value. The
National Association of Home Builders recently compiled a “How
Long Things Last” report for homeowners. While other flooring
options generally had a life expectancy of about a decade, wood
flooring’s estimated life was listed at 100-plus years. That’s value
that stands the test of time.
Likewise, in a survey of real estate agents, 58% of agents
surveyed agree that homes with wood floors sell for more money
than homes without wood floors — up to 10% more. In addition,
46% agree that homes with wood floors sell faster than homes
without them. In the same survey, 90% of agents agree that
hardwood floors influence a home’s marketability. There’s no
doubt that real wood floors add value to your home, so it’s
important that you choose a wood flooring professional who can
guide you through the process, whether you are installing a new
floor, or refinishing one that has been around for many decades.
A wood flooring professional who is a member of the National
Wood Flooring Association can help you with each phase of your
flooring decision, from choosing the right species based on your
location, lifestyle and budget, to giving you the high-quality
installation or refinishing that you expect, to taking care of your
floor so that it will look beautiful for many generations to come.
