Hardwood flooring increases the value of a house. It's the same with having wooden steps. Hardwoods are long-lasting and durable. They are good for allergy and asthma sufferers. Their classic aesthetics will never go out of vogue. They are not, however, impervious to wear and strain. Treads can become worn and scraped in high-traffic places, such as stairwells. Your staircase should be repaired if it has discoloured or shows signs of usage.
