Carpet has its place and always will. It’s warm, quiet, and most of the time a much less cost initially to lay out.

The reason is because if the right wood is chosen and maintained correctly, it is a permanent investment, adding thousands of dollars to the appraised value.
You can figure that for every dollar invested in your wood floor, you will receive one and a half times.
