That statement might have surprised you a bit, but everyone seems to focus on the initial cost of hardwood flooring
which, admittedly, can cause some sticker shock.
Take all factors into consideration, however. It lasts for years; in fact, we’ve heard of some cases where it’s lasted up to 100 years. It often looks better with age. If they do look worn and scratched, and as long as there is no structural damage, such as that caused by termites, refinishing (with or without sanding) often does the trick. If you feel like a change, just make it a different color with some sanding and re-staining.
Most of all, hardwood floors add value to your home, usually about 70 to 90 percent of the cost. If you plan to sell, know that buyers will often go as high as 2.5 percent to get a home with a wood floor. There's also the visual appeal because houses that show well just sell faster.
