285 Apartments for rent in Battle Ground, WA with Hardwood Floors
Despite its name, Battleground is famous for a fight that was never quite fought.
A long time ago (and in a galaxy not so far away), U.S. soldiers were dispatched to confront members of the Klickitat native tribe in Battleground. The U.S. captain actually resolved the issue peacefully -- but some town dwellers, itching for a fight, accused the captain of cowardice and mockingly named the site "Strong's Battleground," after him. Over the years, the name was shortened and then made official. Who would've thought a town of over 15,000 would have such a troubled, yet untroubled, past? See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Battle Ground 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.
