How many apartments with hardwood floors are available for rent in Hueytown?
Home to NASCAR greats, The Alabama Gang, Hueytown, AL, was once humming from more than a NASCAR driver's tires. In the early 1990s, there was a mysterious hum -- likely related to a large ventilation fan in an underground mine once in the area. It hasn't been heard since.
Both agriculture and industry formed the backbone of Hueytown, AL: a nice, quaint country town. The Woodward Iron Co. was formed here in 1881 and had a daily capacity of 250,000 tons of iron in 1909. But steel mills are part of the town's history, not its present. The last blast furnace closed in 1973. There was coal mining, too, at the turn of the century, which is another industry that is no longer part of the community. Left behind were several historic buildings from the mining era that are fascinating to explore, if you like that sort of thing. See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Hueytown renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.
However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.
Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.
It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.
Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.
However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
