908 Apartments for rent in Winfield, IL with Hardwood Floors
Although the town wasn't incorporated until 1921, its history dates back to the 1830s, when it was dubbed Gary's Mill after an early pioneer. (The name still exists in a two mile stretch of road.) In 1873, the town assumed its current designation from Winfield Scott, a U.S. Army general and Whig Party candidate for president in 1852.

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Winfield 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.
