What's the True Cost of Carpet Laying in Rental Properties

It’s easy to forget about the state of the carpet in your Wellington rental property, but dated and worn carpet can reduce the rent value and lower tenant demand, making this a key issue for landlords to consider.



Why Should You Replace The Carpets?

Replacing carpets in rental properties can be seen as a daunting investment for landlords, but the benefits are usually advantageous for both the landlord and tenants. Properties with dated carpets often appear tired and worn, making them harder to tenant than other properties. Replacing carpets is a good way to freshen up the property, and it can last 10-15 years before it begins to look worn, making it a long-lasting approach to help attract tenants and reduce the costs of tenant turnover in future years.

What We Recommend

When we need carpets we refer to the local Robert Inwood Flooring in Wellington Central. For rental properties, they recommend solution dyed nylon carpet, as it’s easy to keep clean, holds the colour longer, plus is hard wearing and cost-effective. Though there are lower priced carpets available on the market, over the years Robert Inwood Flooring has found this product is the most durable and long lasting for the price. Plus, it’s discounted at Robert Inwood Flooring, as they buy solution dyed nylon carpet in bulk, helping to lower the cost of carpet laying for property owners.
