We love that our buildings are stylish and attractive, but we also love all of the underlying features that make them the quality, long lasting buildings that people know and trust. One of the things that makes the floors of our buildings strong is that they’re made “tongue in groove”, which means that every board has a tongue on one side and a groove down the other.
The tongue on one board connects to the groove in the next board, and the result is an interlocking floor that won’t separate over time. Regular plank flooring has nails that connect the planks. It’s not nearly so stable, the floor surface often is uneven, and the nails sometimes work their way out of the wood. It’s also not very attractive.
Our standard tongue in groove floors are attached to joists that are 16 inches on center, which ensures stability. The joists themselves are bolted to runners, which hold the building steady during transporting.
And that’s just our floor. From the bottom to the top, our storage units are built with quality and aesthetics in mind. Why rent a storage building when you can own? Get your groove on today and come to Hometown today and let us introduce you to the tongue in groove floors – and the rest of our buildings!
