The Top 10 Reasons to get Wood Flooring


If you, like many other Southern California residents out there, want to make the switch to wood flooring, but are unsure, then let Century Custom Hardwood Floors of Los Angeles guide you to your decision. We’ve listed the Top Ten Reasons to get wood flooring, to help you understand the benefits of hardwood floors. Without further ado, the ten:

  1. Wood Floors last decades, if not a lifetime
    If properly installed (which they will be, if installed by us), wood floors can last several decades with the right maintenance and care. The warranty that comes with these floors is for 25 years, but we’ve worked with reclaimed hardwood floors that are over 100 years old, and they looked great.
  1. Wood Floors are easy to maintain and repair
    If you think wood floors require all sorts of tools and chemicals to maintain, think again. Wood floors are incredibly easy to care for, and they only require a good cleaning with a special cleaning agent every once in a while. Likewise, repairs for wood floors are very easy to do and don’t cost much. Custom hardwood refinishing is our specialty, and it costs less than half of a full installation.
  1. Though not cheap, wood floors are a great investment
    Although the initial investment for wood flooring is somewhat steep, they’re worth it. Wood floors have an ROI (return-on-investment) of 2 or more, meaning that you’ll get back twice what you paid for them if you sell the property they’re installed on. They also won’t devaluate the property if you install them for your pleasure.
  1. We’re experts in all things wood flooring
    With over 25 years in the wood flooring business, we’ve come to know pretty much everything there is to know about this kind of floor. With that in mind, we offer all kinds of services for your wood floors, including, but not limited to: wood floor installation, hardwood refinishing, wood floor repair, buffing and cleaning, color matching or custom staining, and many more.
  1. Licensed, Bonded, and Insured
    We have all of the required licenses (as a matter of fact, we have multiple CA-state licenses), bonds and insurance mandated by the State of California to work on projects like these, as well as a certification by the National Wood Floor Association for our expertise in wood flooring. Even our flooring technicians are experts in their own right, each having years of wood flooring experience under their belts.
  1. Most Bang for your Buck
    Having a large network of the top business contacts made up of wholesaler, flooring suppliers and manufacturers such as Old Master Products and Green Glue which allows us to cut out the middleman and reduce costs for raw materials, lowering the overall cost of the project by as much as 35%. It also reduces the time it takes to deliver the materials to the project site.
  1. We offer a wide variety of flooring options
    Our inventory of available hardwoods spans over 40 different species and sub-species, each available in solid, engineered or laminate quality. These are further expanded by the multitude of stains and color choices available. We can even create a custom floor with our custom staining service, which allows clients to customize stains, colors, thickness, species, finish, and the gloss levels of their floor.
  1. Unmatched Client Service
    While certifications and licenses are good to have, knowing how to treat clients is paramount to a successful company. That’s why we keep a high standard of excellence for client service. Our A+ rating by the BBB proves that we know how to take care of our clients and their needs. We even guarantee your satisfaction 100%.
  1. We’re efficient, clean, and safe
    Though schedules and times will vary, it takes about 2-3 weeks to finish a wood floor installation, 2 weeks for a refinishing, and 3 weeks for a wood floor repair. That being said, it’s well within the average time, and we almost always finish early. We also properly handle and dispose of any chemicals we use during a project, meaning you won’t have to worry about any harmful residue or toxic fumes being left on your floor. It’s also a point of pride for us that we’ve never had a major on-site accident in the entire history of Century Floors.
