That led to the inception of Haile Flooring in 2010. Our showroom is in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We service the Inland Empire, which is the Southern California region adjacent to Los Angeles, as well as San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. Be sure to ask us about our estimate!"

Flooring longevity, classic beauty

Hardwood just doesn’t wear out. A floor can last sometimes even up to 100 years and often looks better with age. When they do start to look dull, worn or excessively scratched, you just need to call for a refinishing. Unless there’s some structural damage, such as from termites, the sanding and re-staining will bring them back to the original luster.

They also work with any decor; in fact, you’ll be overwhelmed when you walk into a flooring store and see the variety of hardwood species. If you do feel like you need a change, just have them sanded and stained a different color.

Increasing home values

You'll see this in a few ways: You'll recoup 70 to 80% of the sales price, as reflected in your home's value. In short, what was a 200K home could become a 220K one. Buyers will often pay 2.5% more for a home with wood floors. We are told this by a real estate sales associate. Finally, there’s the visual appeal that makes the house sell faster.

Solid vs. engineered hardwood

Our flooring retailer tells us that people will often come into the showroom longing for wood floors but are concerned about damage from water. The only difference between solid and engineered hardwood is in the construction. While one has a slice of genuine wood that goes all the way through the board, engineering has a genuine slice on top with at least three layers combining authentic wood with some resins to give it additional strength and stability.

Then, for even more stability, the layers are placed in a crosswise position. Like solid, you still shouldn’t install it in the bathroom, but half-baths and powder rooms are fine.
