One of the most common questions we receive from homeowners is:

“What are the advantages of installing hardwood flooring in my home instead of carpet?”

From economics to aesthetic appeal, we’ve compiled a list of the important benefits your home and family will appreciate with hardwood flooring.

Hardwood Flooring’s Long-Term Economic Advantages vs. Carpet:

  • Hardwood Flooring Outlives the Latest Trends –Homeowners regularly complete upgrades in an effort to retain the value of the home. Fortunately, hardwood floors are always in style.
  • Hardwood Flooring Improves Overall Home Value –History tells us that home buyers favor homes with hardwood flooring and are willing to pay more for this feature. (Sources: USA Today,, The Oklahoman)

Hardwood Flooring’s Daily Living Advantages vs Carpet:

  • Better Acoustics – Wood flooring types help reduce muffled or vibrating sounds – giving you crystal-clear sound quality at home for a state-of-the-art home theater system.                                                                                 
  • Little to No Cleaning Equipment Needed – With hardwood floors, there’s no need to buy vacuum cleaners every few years or a bucketful of cleaning supplies to keep it clean. All that’s needed is a damp microfiber mop to dust and mop every few days or so.

Hardwood Flooring’s Long-Term Maintenance Advantage vs. Carpet:

  • Hardwearing – There aren’t many floor types that can match the lifespan of hardwood flooring. These floor coverings can last a lifetime with some maintenance and if they do scratch or wear, a wood floor refinishing treatment provides an economical way to restore its original beauty.
