Most proud homeowners make it their priority to update and add features that create a warm and inviting place to live whilst adding significant value to their investment. One of the best ways to improve aesthetics and add physical value is with addition of high quality timber floorboards. Forte Flooring is one of Ireland’s leading manufacturers of premium engineered hardwood timber flooring and we understand just how valuable oak floorboards can be to homes of all architectural styles and designs. Let’s explore just some of the many reasons why homes with premium oak timber flooring are worth more in the property market.
Timber flooring doesn’t date, it isn’t a fad or trend that you will look back on in years to come and wonder why you ever considered it. With a seemingly endless array of colours, grains, sizes, styles and finishes, there are timber floorboards to suit any style of home from classic to contemporary. For coastal or Hamptons style homes, whitewashed boards add a subtle textural element perfect for beachside living, while heritage and period houses featuring chevron flooring and darker timbers exude a sense of grandeur and luxury.
One of the benefits of engineered timber flooring is that it can last for decades with some simple maintenance and cleaning. Unlike other flooring types which may succumb to staining and require frequent scrubbing, resealing or re-sanding, engineered timber floor boards will look as good in many years to come as they do today. Incredibly durable and highly resistant to discoloration, regular sweeping and vacuuming along with dry mopping is all you need to keep your engineered timber floors looking immaculate so they stand the test of time.
Sustainability is a great concern these days, and eco-friendly materials are high up on the wish list of many home owners and potential new home buyers. At Forte Flooring, we source our wood from ethical suppliers in Europe to ensure the most guilt-free, luxury wooden floor products available. We have also gone one step further, in 2022, we joined Carbon Neutral’s Plant-A-Tree Program, an initiative that aims to restore landscapes and reproduce natural ecosystems with hundreds of trees already planted across Ireland. Our engineered timber flooring is visually stunning, gives the texture and warmth of solid hardwood, is incredibly robust to withstand the rigours of modern family life and is helping to create a better future for our planet.
Remember, Not All Timber Floorboards Are Equal
Whether you are updating your property for sale or looking to renovate and want the best possible return on your investment, installing timber floorboards is one of the easiest and most effective ways to add value and attract buyers. However, there are many timber flooring suppliers in Australia and many of them supply inferior quality products that likely won’t add value, and may even end up costing you in the long run. At Forte Flooring
we source only the best, sustainable European timber and have developed an innovative nosing system that means every panel fits perfectly with the next. This results in a seamless, high quality finish that will be sure to add the most value to your property.
