Why are Hardwood Floor Prices so Varied?

If you have been shopping for hardwood floors, you have probably noticed that hardwood floor prices go from budget prices up to quite expensive. This can be confusing for consumers, but there truly are good reasons why this is the case. The type of wood, type of construction and other factors all influence hardwood floor prices.

Types of Wood – Each species of tree grows at a different rate, with some maturing in just a few years and those that take decades. Additionally, some types of wood are readily available, while others are scarcer or are in other parts of the world and thus have higher transportation costs to get to the manufacturer.

Type of Construction – Hardwood floor prices are also affected by the quality of the end product. They range from having a minimal wear layer over lesser-priced materials to solid, through and through hardwood products. Always be sure to look at the sample from the side to see how far down the product could be sanded and thus restored. A good solid wear layer will give you a lifetime of enjoyment.

Other Factors – As with most products on the market, demand affects hardwood floor prices. For example, the trend toward environmentally sound products has pushed the price of bamboo higher than would otherwise be the case for this fast-growing, sustainable material. Oversupply or undersupply can temporarily affect hardwood floor prices, as well.
