Think of your floors--what other part of your home gets as much wear and tear and as little TLC? Whether you plan to stay in your home for the foreseeable future or if you are looking to sell sometime soon, it may be time to update your flooring!
But is it worth the expense? See four reasons below why it may be time to upgrade the floors in your house.
We all want our homes to look great. Who doesn't love to hear their families and friends gushing over their home accents when they come over for dinner? But could your flooring be diminishing the overall appearance of your house?
Whether it's well-worn paths in your living room carpet, cracked tiles in your kitchen, or dated and dingy bathroom floors, over time we all become acclimated to these blemishes. But when we have guests over, those small blemishes become glaringly apparent. Take a look at the floors in every room of your home with a critical eye--is there something that needs to be fixed? If you have been in your home longer than 5 years, chances are the answer is yes!
In South Texas, we already know that we will be running our AC all summer long. Did you know that flooring can help cool your home in those hot summer months? Vinyl and hardwood floors both have the ability to absorb heat, making it easier to cool down your home. This could mean a significantly lower electricity bill May through September!
If you are thinking of putting your home on the market and need a quick way to give your home a facelift, new flooring may do the trick! Not only is it a way to modernize your home, it can take the appearance of years off the age of your property, making it much more attractive to potential buyers.
Your Family's Health
When was your carpet installed? All homes are susceptible to molds and allergens--especially in the humid and allergy-ridden San Antonio area! Your old carpet could be harboring many of the allergens that effect your family's health. Replacing carpet with hardwood floors can immediately improve the air quality of your home, helping everyone in your household breath easier and sleep better.
