Hardwood flooring keeps it's value going forward. Studies show that homes will increase in value by about 90% of what was originally paid for the wood flooring and that value holds as the years go by. Wood flooring in general costs about twice what new carpet costs but with the increase in value to the home, consumers will recoup their money when they sell. New carpet does not offer that kind of return. Plus, since hardwood flooring retains it's value, if and when you ever have to replace the carpet again, then hardwood flooring has become the cheaper option (even though it costs more up front).
Here we have a home in Livonia where we removed the old carpet, installed new solid oak hardwood flooring, then sanded down the surface, stained it with a light brown stain and coated the surface with 3 coats of high quality hardwood floor finish. The results speak for themselves.
