Hardwood floors are a common choice of flooring among many homeowners. They typically consist of a natural, durable material that can transform a space into a classic, elegant setting. After all it’s all about lamination!
Over time, those who have hardwood floors installed in their homes may notice some scratches or scuffs and be concerned that it’s time to replace them. Fortunately, a simple refinishing job is often all you need to restore your flooring to its original state.
Home value increases
If you intend to place your property on the market, having high-quality hardwood floors can increase its value. The floors are often visually the first thing potential buyers are likely to notice. Newly refinished hardwood floors can significantly affect the value and appeal of a home when looking to sell.
Less time consuming
Having floors replaced is not only more expensive but also takes longer. On average, it can take anywhere between 3 to 5 days to do a complete replacement successfully. It may be difficult for homeowners to navigate their way through the house during that time due to the work and materials. On the other hand, refinishing can be done in as quickly as two days and is far more adaptable.
While it physically appears terrible, a damaged floor can also be hazardous, especially if small children and pets are in the household. By professionally refinishing the floors, it eliminates any potential dangers associated with damage, such as splintering.
