If you own an apartment complex and are considering new flooring, we at E Hardwoods & Flooring commend you. Just like us, you believe your clients deserve the very best in both style and functionality. You also know, though, that an investment in new flooring is sure to pay dividends. The apartment industry today is increasingly competitive, and clients look for luxury living for the high prices they pay for rent.
What flooring is right for you, though? An apartment complex has specific needs, needs that are similar yet different from those of the average household. Moreover, different parts of your apartment probably have different needs in and of themselves. For example, a hallway is a very different ecosystem, so to speak, than the interior of individual units.
E Hardwoods & Flooring is here to help you find the right flooring for your individual situation. Though every apartment is unique, certain flooring types tend to hold up better in these environments than others.
A crowd of people living in close quarters is bound to generate quite a bit of noise, especially in the form of footsteps. While the proper flooring will help tenants maintain peace and quiet, additional products, like underlayment, can help to muffle sounds. Putting the extra buck into these additions is certainly worth it, as it creates a more comfortable living environment and can justify your boosting rent.
Of course, your flooring can also have an effect on the noise levels of your complex—but noise isn’t the only factor you have to worry about when you’re shopping for your building.
