Hardwood Flooring Myths Debunked

Hardwood flooring is a popular choice for many reasons, from its lush appearance to its durability. Unfortunately, there are also many myths surrounding hardwood flooring, which can add to the overall cost of your project. So, if you’re planning to replace your old flooring with new hardwood, and don’t want to be surprised by the high expense of quality hardwood flooring services, read this post first!

Myth #1: Only the wealthy can afford hardwood.

Hardwood flooring is definitely not inexpensive, but you do not have to spend a small fortune to enjoy the benefits it can offer. With a little planning, you can get the look and feel of a high-end, expensive hardwood floor, without going broke.

Myth #2: You don’t need to install hardwood.

Hardwood flooring does not come with a pre-installed underlayment, but the floor must be installed with either hardwood plywood or granite base, which is an additional cost of around $3 to $6 a square foot. In other words, if you want a hardwood floor that is not pre-installed with a plywood or granite base, you should expect to pay around $5 to $10 a square foot.

Myth #3: Hardwood flooring is only for the wealthy and upper class.

While the cost of hardwood is definitely not for everyone, it is not classed as the middle-class flooring option, either. With your choice of high-quality hardwood flooring, you can have the look of expensive hardwood flooring without the high price tag. And, if you want even higher-end hardwood flooring that can cost around $10 to $20 a square foot, you can easily afford it with the right planning.
