478 Apartments for rent in Moncks Corner, SC with Hardwood Floors
While most people might assume that the town was named after the monastery located in town (with a slight spelling change), Moncks Corner was in fact named after landowner Thomas Monck in 1728, hundreds of years before Mepkin Abbey opened its doors.
Quaint is the perfect word to describe this small South Carolina town located close enough to the coast and Charleston to enjoy their amenities, but far enough away to have its own culture and history. Rice plantations once dotted the banks of the river churning out produce for most of the country. Today, many of these plantations still stand, either as public places to tour and hold functions, or as palatial private residences. One such plantation became Mepkin Abbey. The Roman Catholic monastery has a chapel and botanical garden open to the public. See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Moncks Corner 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.
