Miami is one of the most popular cities to vacation due to its fabulous climate and spectacular beaches, for those of us who live in Miami know that the climate most of the year is humid and hot, so many home or business owners ask themselves, should I have hardwood floors or a similar option imitating this type of flooring ? The answer is,
Nothing better than the authentic thing, REAL wood floors. In the last 10 years we have noticed a great increase of engineered hardwood flooring sales and installations in our city, Miami. Because engineered flooring is less prone to moisture damage, it can be installed over a variety of surfaces in many applications, including kitchens, and bathrooms with light moisture.
Here are our top 5 reasons to install Real wood floors in Miami.
1- Easy to clean and maintain
Many of our clients before having hardwood floors think that cleaning and maintaining hardwood floors is a very difficult task especially if you have children or dogs, but the reality is quite the opposite, cleaning wood floors is pretty easy and convenient when compared with other types of floors such as carpets or tile, removing stains and spills can be very laborious on these surfaces, but when it comes to cleaning wood floors, all you have to do is daily vacuum and then deep cleaning with a product suitable for hardwood flooring once or twice a week.
2-Increases your home’s value
Wood is king ! Wood flooring is not the least expensive option when choosing flooring for your home, but the payoff is far higher than other types of flooring. If you plan to sell your property, most buyers prefer wooden floors for their durability, easy to clean and they complement any type of decoration style. “According to real estate experts, the average ROI (rate on investment) for installing hardwood floors is about 70 percent to 80 percent, and wood floors can boost the sales price of your home as much as 2.5 percent”
3- Can last for generations to generations
Hardwood floors can last up to a century, that is one of the best benefits of this type of flooring, as long as you own your property you will not have to change your wood floors and even after your property passes to another generation it will still have life left, wood floors like any other flooring get dirty, but in the case of wood it does not absorb dirt or spilled liquids, unlike carpets or tile, of course hardwood floors will eventually have scratches and dents from foot traffic but you can sand a refinish them multiple time, you can even change the color and finish as you wish. You just don’t get the same level of class and longevity with carpet, laminate, vinyl or other flooring options. Think about it, carpet that has been worn out and needs to be torn up, or vinyl flooring that has been dented and battered and needs to be replaced. Dings and dents in hardwood flooring tend to simply add a welcoming and homey feel. However, if that isn’t your style, those blemishes can be sanded and refinished time and time again.
4- Many variety of styles are available
Hardwood flooring really never goes out of style, if you have ever visited or seen a documentary of the palaces and castles of France or England such as the famous Palace of Versailles, you may have noticed spectacular hardwood floors and who does not want to have those wonderful hardwood floors in their home? On the other hand, other types of flooring may come in many different options, but can they stand the test of time? Is that carpet from the 1970s still in good shape or popular? No right ..
Hardwood floors these days comes in many finishes, colors and species, you can select any size from 5” to 10” wide, long lengths and you can also select the grade of your wood flooring, with hardwood flooring you'll have the option to choose just about anything.
