Wood flooring lasts for decades; unless there’s structural damage, all it ever needs is a refinishing.
It also has natural beauty and countless benefits. It's hard to imagine you'd want anything else in your home after this.
Solid wood has been known to last for 100 years. Engineered hardwood is ultra-durable and can last for decades.

There are few, if any, repair and replacement costs. This makes solid hardwood flooring and the engineered version a highly cost-effective option.
Wood flooring also adds value to a property
You’ll see this in two ways. Whether solid or engineered hardwood, you’ll recoup 70% to 80% of the initial cost as reflected in your home values. Theoretically, a home worth 300K could become valued at $316K.
Potential buyers often pay over 2.5 % for a home with these floors. There’s also the visual appeal; homes with wood flooring sell faster when in good shape.
Elegance and beauty don't necessarily translate to high maintenance. Water is the biggest enemy of solid wood so take measures to prevent it.
