Property improvements are a great idea for any business, especially commercial property owners. Reasons to upgrade your property range from cosmetic (to attract more tenants) to increased sustainability, (reducing costs for everyone) to safety (particularly when it comes to children.)

Cosmetic upgrades include switching to flooring options like laminate, tile floors, and vinyl plank flooring. Vinyl plank flooring can be installed easily over existing flooring and is very easy to maintain.

Property improvements for added sustainability include switching out old lightbulbs for CFL’s, installing rain barrels to cut down on water costs, and making your property more energy efficient with ENERGY STAR certified appliances.

Lastly, staying on top of your property’s child safety elements can literally save lives. Is your building in an area with high rates of crimes? If so, do you have adequate security? Make sure that all balconies and guardrails are up to code and structurally strong. Even if you don’t have a playground, make sure any open grassy areas where children might play are visible.

Best flooring for apartments? Vinyl plank flooring is an alternative to hardwood or laminate, offering many benefits to renters & landlords. Low maintenance, looks great - perfect fit!
