The best investment values among flooring options

Nealy’s Flooring in Kitchener, Ontario, is a flooring products company that is dedicated to helping you find the perfect floor for your home — even if the time has come to sell it.

The dream home you’ve imagined can be yours with a combination of carpeting, hardwood flooring, laminate and more. Nealy’s Flooring likes to say that, “If you’ve walked on it, we have it!”

But if you are coming to the point in time where you are looking to sell your home, you might be wondering which flooring option would best increase its resale value.

Hands down, wood floors — particularly hardwood ones — will give you the best bang for your buck. In fact, some experts suggest hardwood floors will end up being worth twice the amount of money you invest in them. Your home will also sell faster.

It’s all because of the “wow factor” that hardwood floors have. Even by the most conservative estimates, you will get back at least the cost — and, more likely, 50 per cent more — of your hardwood floor installation.

If you currently have hardwood floors, refinishing them will give your home’s value a significant boost. Of course, this would also cost far less than installing totally new floors.

It might be that, for one reason or another, your home isn’t suited to hardwood floors. In that case, ceramic tile is another good — though possibly pricey — investment option.

If cost is a factor, you might want to look at good carpeting or vinyl flooring. Vinyl doesn’t give your home the value boost hardwood does, but it will at least give your home the appearance of being up to date and well-maintained.

Underlying all of these considerations is your budget and the timing of your house sale. It can be a lot to think about, but that’s where the flooring experts at Nealy’s Flooring can prove to be a valuable resource for you.
