Q: I moved in with my boyfriend, who obviously didn't care at all about having an apartment with hardwood floors, and we have a hideous tile all throughout the whole place. He's been here a total of five years (me three), and we've seen countless tenants move in and out, and they always install hardwood floors in units that are about to be rented out.
Is it reasonable to ask to have hardwood floors installed in our place? Is it a huge ordeal that would involve a lot of demolition? It just kills me that all my neighbors have beautiful floors, and were stuck with the ugly tile! Thanks!

Editor - Anyone have positive experience getting flooring changed out in a rental? We remember once negotiating with a possible manager about changing out carpet with the preserved floors underneath, but never a whole tile change out.
