It’s that time again. Your carpet is damaged or lumpy down to the pad and will cost hundreds to replace for the third time in 10 years. It’s time to update your dated flooring, and we’ll tell you exactly why.

1. Value of Home: If you’re selling your home in the near future, you’ve probably heard that hardwood floors increase the value of your home. The main reason for the value increase is a greater ability to sell the home. Buyers look for homes with hardwood (real or engineered) and tile since it makes for easy cleanup and has a longer lifespan.

2. Life-Span: When it comes to tile, properly installed tiles should last the lifetime of your home, even when used in heavy traffic areas! Most ceramic or porcelain tiles have a durability rating issued from 0-5 to aid in your decision. The best part? No replacing your carpet every five years!

Ceramic tiles can even be used outdoors, unlike carpet.

3. Allergens and Messes: This one is significantly important to those of us with pets. As much as we love our furry kids, they’re messy pretty frequently. Smooth flooring allows for easy cleanup without having to replace the carpet padding.

Pet-owners with allergies will appreciate tile or hardwood over carpet by leaps and bounds. Pet dander is notorious for accumulating in carpets and exacerbating your allergies.

4. Affordability: While the initial cost of tile or hardwood floors may have a higher price point than your carpet, they pay for themselves over the life of the home, especially if you choose the right flooring company!
