791 Apartments for rent in Woodbridge, NJ with Hardwood Floors
"There was an old woman in Woodbridge there was; so proper and tidy and all of them things." (- Stan Rogers, "Woodbridge Dog Disaster")
Woodbridge is actually the oldest original township in New Jersey. It was named for 17th century local, the Reverend John W. Woodbridge, who settled here with a royal charter from none other than King Charles II. Confused about how a town is different than a township? So are most of us. In New Jersey, townships have a municipal government and are equal in status to a town, although generally smaller. Woodbridge, however, has a population of nearly 100 000 people, so if you were hoping for a clear explanation, there just isn't one! See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Woodbridge 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.
