However, many flooring surfaces will degrade quickly in a rental home. Soon, the floors will not portray the image the landlord wants to create for their property, especially in today’s competitive rental market.
Upgrading the flooring in a rental property is one of the fastest and easiest ways to increase rental income — and here are a few reasons why:
Easy to maintain
Rental property flooring must be easy to clean and maintain. Not all tenants will be willing to maintain the flooring, which can lead to damaged floors and costly repairs or replacements.
Looking after the flooring in a rental property can greatly increase a landlord’s operating costs, but by choosing the right rental property flooring, maintenance can be a breeze.
Our flooring is designed with durability in mind. It provides a seamless, waterproof surface that is ideal for kitchens and bathrooms because spillages will not penetrate the substrate and cause damage and odor problems.
Rental property flooring takes a lot of abuse, but by choosing a surface that is resistant to stains and creates a water-tight seal that stops mold and mildew in its tracks, landlords can save time and money on floor repairs and replacements.
Safe and sanitary flooring
Landlords must ensure that their property is safe and habitable when new tenants move in. The risk of injury is a consideration that all reputable landlords take seriously.
Flooring options such as tiles or vinyl are prone to being slippery — especially when used in shower rooms. Everlast® Epoxy flooring contains a slip-resistant additive to reduce the risk of a trip or fall, – giving landlords peace of mind that they are providing a safer environment for tenants.
No tenant wants to share their home with bacteria and germs. Carpets and tiles harbor dust, germs, and debris, which can cause health issues for renters who suffer from allergies or respiratory issues.
Everlast® Epoxy floors contain an EPA-registered antimicrobial component that restricts the spread of microorganisms to protect the floors against a wide range of allergens and bacteria.
By creating a safe and hygienic home for tenants, landlords can set higher rental fees while potentially avoiding issues should a renter suffer an injury caused by an inferior flooring surface.
Good-looking rental flooring
The flooring of a rental property should tie the decor together with the rest of the home. Tenants will be looking to see if the property fits in with their lifestyle, and the aesthetics of the flooring can play an important part in making the environment appealing.
With over fifty colors to choose from, there is sure to be a style to suit all types of property. From cool contemporary grays for modern living to classic greens and deep red for older home styles, landlords can provide their tenants with the functionality they need and the aesthetics they desire.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring is also resilient to foot traffic, so the floors will not show any sign of unsightly wear paths that otherwise make the property look tired and poorly maintained.
Improve the exterior appeal of the property
Although the interior appearance of a rental property is very important, the exterior can be just as crucial, as it is a potential tenant’s first impression of the property.
Curb appeal has a big influence on potential tenants, and although new windows and, doors and a fresh coat of paint on the external walls can transform the look of the building, these are costly and time-consuming improvements.
For a fast and easy way to improve the appeal of your property’s outdoor areas, Everlast® Epoxy flooring can add desirability to poolside areas and walkways and make parking lots and garages look well-maintained and attractive.
