Hardwood Flooring

Does hardwood add value to a home?

We, at Elkton Carpet and Tile, say definitively, YES! But don’t just take our word for it. Let’s look at some ways that wood flooring adds unique value to your home. There are many reasons to love hardwood floors. From the beautiful, timeless appearance to outstanding performance and lifespan, hardwood floors are a category all their own.


Hardwood floors offer a personalization that makes them perfect for a wide variety of rooms. Do you have kids or pets? Then you can find a hardwood that is durable enough for them. The harder the type of wood, like oak, the more protection you will get.

There is a whole world of stain colors available to you. If you have a site-finished material, like solid hardwood, then you will have extensive colors to choose from. Your choices lessen if you decide to get a pre-finished product from the factory, like engineered hardwood. But the installation of engineered hardwood is much faster and easier because the sanding, sealing, staining, and finishing have all been carried out before it comes to you.


You want to get the maximum out of your hardwood. That’s why it’s preferable to use a manufacturer-recommended cleaner for your floor. Never use abrasives of any kind. A general sweeping of the floor daily will go a long way to keeping it looking great. You may want to add some area rugs or runners to help with softening the rooms and hallways and keeping your floors clean.
