Carpet vs. wood: Why choose wood flooring?

Trying to decide between carpet and hardwood flooring?? Here?s some information to help you decide and see more benefits in wood flooring, so read along for that information.

Your best hardwood flooring is waiting

Carpet flooring is indeed the only soft surface floor covering and provides outstanding comfort underfoot. But when compared with hardwood, does it stand up to your requirements?

Carpeting usually does not add much real estate value since it is recognized as an inexpensive, short-lived flooring material. Hardwood adds to the value of your home, giving a higher resale value, carpeting does not.

Carpeting traps pollen, allergens, and germs; hardwood does not, making it an excellent choice for allergy sufferers.

Wood floors are exceptionally durable, offering more than 100 years of life when professionally installed and properly maintained, as opposed to carpet?s 5 to 20 years. Hardwood is easy to clean and doesn?t stain, it also hides scuffs, and scratches, especially with impressive finishes such as hand-scraped or distressed.

Installing wood flooring does take a bit longer, but considering the extensive species, color, format, and finish options you?ll have at your disposal, it?s well worth the wait.
