Changing your flooring is a great way to add value to your home, and there are several reasons to do so. New flooring can give your home a new look and increase its resale value. Old floors may be worn, warped, or have damage to the subfloor. Whether you’re considering selling your house soon or staying put for many years, consider upgrading your flooring. If you’re not sure whether it’s time to update your floor, consider the benefits.
Exposed nails can be painful – especially in high-traffic areas like the hallway. They can cut your toe or catch on your socks making you trip. One or two exposed nail heads shouldn’t be cause for concern, but larger exposed nail areas may require replacement. If your nails are coming loose, you may want to consider ripping up the flooring. Similarly, if there are damaged patches or areas worn away, you could be damaging the sub floor in heavy traffic areas.

Another reason to update flooring is if the current flooring is difficult to maintain and you want to replace it with a material that requires less maintenance. New flooring can be easier to clean, will last longer and simply require a sweep or vacuum a couple of times a week. This can be ideal for busy families or those with pets and small children.
