Renovate Your Conroe Rental Property with These Budget-Friendly Materials

Stylish Living Room in Conroe with Reclaimed Wood FlooringAs a single-family rental property investor in Conroe, keeping your property’s appeal high without breaking your budget is a must. There are now many inexpensive materials you can choose from to update your rental home. Some of the best budget-friendly materials for your Conroe rental homes are wood, stone, or tile. Here, we have listed more options for you.

Reclaimed Wood

Wood lends an air of comfort and warmth like wood. But new hardwood is expensive. Alternatively, you can use reclaimed wood for your property. Using reclaimed woods as great budget-friendly materials is a good option for property investors because they can be used to remodel floors, fences, and decks or to add other decorative elements. With reclaimed wood, you can achieve that weathered, rustic look of cabins and beach houses. If you want a colorful or a more contemporary look, you can also refinish, stain, or paint it.


Most commonly used in tropical countries, bamboo is a beautiful & environmentally-friendly material. Bamboo rods or sheets are readily available and are very affordable. You can use bamboo on interior walls, patio bars, planter beds, lightweight fencing, and more. This can certainly add beauty to any room or yard!

Ceramic or Porcelain Tiles

Using ceramic or porcelain tiles can help stretch your remodeling budget. Ceramic tiles come in many styles, colors, and finishes that can give you a lot of fun combinations for the kitchen and bath. Unlike natural stone tiles, which are expensive and high-maintenance, ceramic or porcelain tiles are more affordable and easy to maintain. Compared to laminate, a tile countertop looks more attractive and costs just as much or even less.

Solid Surface Countertops

You can achieve that high-end look without the expensive price tag by going for a countertop with a solid surface. Get the same upscale look of real granite for a lot less. Solid surface countertops also come in many colors and finish giving investment property owners like you a lot of choices.

Used Brick

Your rental properties will benefit from used brick, as well as reclaimed wood. Used brick, with its weathered look, can even be more attractive than new brick. Painted brick is also a good alternative. You can use brick to update accent walls, patios, walkways, and of course, chimneys and fireplace surround.

Stone Veneers

If you like the look of natural stone, you will like the more affordable stone veneers. Stone veneers are thin sheets of real stone installed on a wood or concrete backing. Stone veneer panels are usually used for fireplace surrounds, exteriors, and even retaining walls. The price will depend on the style and size you want but stone veneers can instantly upgrade your Conroe property without the weight and expense.
