City Guide for Wilkinsburg, PA

Having separated from Pittsburgh just a few years after the Civil War, Wilkinsburg is a Pennsylvanian borough known for being the location of the first commercially licensed radio station in the world.Once referred to as "The Holy City" due to rules that still exist today, such as no bars within the borough, Wilkinsburg has experienced a continuous population decline since the 1950s. Fortunately, for those who don't like living in close quarters, this means that the population density dropped by...

Located only minutes away from Pittsburgh, Wilkinsburg provides a way to live close to the city without actually living in it.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Wilkinsburg, PA

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