In a survey conducted by the National Wood Flooring Association that involved real estate agents across the country, the agents noted that wood floors can add significant value to your house. For example, if a homeowner’s house is valued at $200,000 and $10,000 is invested in hardwood flooring the house will increase in value to $220,000 which increases the homeowner’s investment by 100%, not bad. The real estate agents that were surveyed also noticed houses sell faster when a house has had hardwood floors installed.

Jason, owner of California Flooring Service a company that was featured on the DIY Network show Man Caves and HGTV’s The Antonio Treatment, couldn’t agree more. Jason adds “Hardwood floors are a stunning feature almost anywhere in your home, and that’s why the houses sell fast in Orange County”.

Hardwood floors are also durable they outlast and outperform any other floor covering material and is very easy to install. With a little planning and a free weekend, a homeowner boost the value in their home. If a homeowner does not have the time or expertise to install hardwood floors, then choosing a contractor will the best way to go. When choosing a contractor “A customer should know that the contractor is licensed and can perform the job “says Jason” Also the contractors’ customer service is very important. A contractor should communicate the process to the homeowner every step of the way so they will be assured that their most important investment will be in safe hands”.
