138 Apartments for rent in Broussard, LA with Hardwood Floors
Broussard wasn't always Broussard. In fact, the city was first called Cote Gelee, which means Frozen Hills, because of a severe winter in 1784. The hilly terrain froze over and became slick and treacherous. In 1884, the name of the town was changed by Valsin Broussard, a resident whose store was robbed. He decided to start a vigilante group and change the town's name, and it worked. The name stuck, and thus began the evolution of Broussard as we know it.

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