Yielding a High ROI on Hardwood Floors in Today’s Home-Market


The real estate industry’s post & pre-sale secret of how to obtain a hefty ROI on Hardwood Floors

When deciding what kind of flooring material to replace old floors with, as a seller, it is crucial to decide upon the right choice to maximize ROI (Return On Investment). If the buyers in that particular market go for cheaper homes, then carpet or vinyl are probably the ways to go. If the buyers are looking for something a little more luxurious or in a higher price range, then hardwood flooring is the only option.  The longevity of a wood floors’ life span alone is a great return on your initial investment for the mere fact that solid hardwood floors or engineered wood flooring can be sanded down, refinished and restored or rejuvenated several times – oftentimes outlasting the homeowner’s lifespan itself! Something critical for buyers to keep in mind is the quality of the actual wood flooring installation. If inferior work was performed then who knows what else was skimped on that could cost you more money in the end.

Underlayment and Subflooring is especially important – it may look amazing from the surface, but if improperly installed, your hardwood flooring could quickly become a huge headache.  You can breathe easy with Century Custom Hardwood Floors, simply because all of work is done right – the first time.  We never skimp out on quality or materials and all of our work is bonded, insured and licensed by California’s Contractors State License Board.  Got questions?  We’ve got answers!  Call (800) 608-6007 to ask us how we can maximize the ROI on hardwood floors in your Los Angeles  home!

There are several determining factors when considering your ROI on hardwood floors, for example:  Homes with bamboo hardwood floors or reclaimed wood flooring installs have a much higher resale value than homes without them.

A small home with custom hardwood flooring can equal or even surpass a larger home with carpet, vinyl or tile. Naturally, this means a heftier initial investment for your home, but it’s worth every penny. In the long run, hardwood flooring requires less maintenance, lasts longer and keeps your home’s worth above others.  Another invaluable factor pertaining to hardwood floors in your home is the cleanliness and hypoallergenicity benefits found within wood flooring.

The Ultimate Consumers Guide to Reclaimed Hardwoods

What is “Reclaimed Hardwood”? It sounds Used and Cheap!
Well, you got one thing right. Reclaimed hardwood is simply flooring that was installed elsewhere some time ago, and is now recycled into semi-new hardwood flooring. Hey! That makes me think it won’t last long… Ah, but you would be mistaken, good sir/madam. Reclaimed wood flooring has the same durability, and in fact, most of the same physical characteristics of new hardwood floors but one: the look.

What’s so special about the way it looks?
It looks old, distressed, dented and used even. But therein lies the charm: reclaimed or sustainable hardwood flooring has an incredibly unique appearance. It purposely is left looking used and faded, and the result is amazingly, beautiful looking vintage floors. Every grain, stain, and drain in the floor is intact, giving the flooring a character of age; old-fashioned but sophisticated, worn but clean. It’s all the rage now in high-end homes in prestigious neighborhoods like Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Santa Monica, Bel-Air, Brentwood and West Los Angeles, plus not to mention the environmental benefits on our forests.  The unique look of vintage hardwood floors is priceless and highly desirable by today’s trend setting interior designers and upscale real estate agents in the Los Angeles area.

Wait, What Environmental Benefits?
Reclaimed hardwood is recycled, and thus has little negative impact to no impact on the environment. As well as its minimal impact, it requires much less processing, drastically reducing the industrial waste and pollution of producing it. Besides, being green will keep green in your pocket!  Our expert sustainable flooring services in Los Angeles stand out above the rest and have done so for over 25 years.

What do you mean, “Green”?
Just that, Guilt-Free Wood Flooring. While great for the environment, reclaimed wood flooring is also great for your budget. On average, reclaimed wood of any type is dramatically less costly than new wood of the same type; and since it’s as durable as new wood, it’s a win-win situation.

Okay, I’ll Go Green and get Reclaimed Hardwood Floors but What kind, though?
The best answer is, Any. Engineered or solid, unfinished vs prefinished; as long as the manufacturer produces the new, it’ll most likely have a reclaimed version. So if you’re in the mood for a soft-colored white oak, or a demandingly dark walnut, it’s all here and made available to you here at Century Floors by professional Los Angeles flooring contractors who have dealt with sustainable flooring for decades. 

Will it cost me more to Install or Refinish it?
Not at all. Here at Century Custom Hardwood Floor Inc. of Los Angeles, we treat all wood types (with the exception of bamboo) the same:  solid, engineered,  new or reclaimed, when it comes to customized installations or refinishing of hardwood flooring. If that’s not what you’re looking for, you can read more about our other flooring services here!
