Frequently Asked Questions

First, consider the needs of your room. How often will it be used? Do you have kids and pets?

**Engineered wood flooring**

Engineered hardwood is a more affordable wood flooring option. If you really love the feel and look of wood but you have concerns about the installation and cost of a solid hardwood floor, you might go with an engineered wood floor.

Engineered wood flooring is actually composed of wood; it’s made with a thin layer of wood veneer on top of layers of lower-grade wood. With the veneer glued to the top, you can have the look of your favorite hardwood for a lower price.


  • Less expensive than solid hardwood
  • Easy to clean
  • Option for DIY installation


  • Doesn’t last as long as solid hardwood
  • Not moisture-resistant
  • Easily scratched or gouged

**Laminate flooring**

Known for its easy installation, laminate flooring continues to provide a more durable option than hardwood in part to the advancements in manufacturing in recent years.

If you want a long-lasting flooring option, laminate should be one of the first options you consider. Depending on the type of laminate flooring such as laminate plank, you can enjoy your laminate flooring for decades.

Although there are benefits to laminate flooring, like enjoying the look of hardwood on a budget, it does come with limitations. Because nearly all laminate flooring is made from a wood-based, fiberboard core, it doesn’t tolerate water well; it’s not ideal for a bathroom or kitchen.


  • Affordable
  • Easy to install
  • Low-maintenance


  • Not water-resistant
  • Can be scratched
  • If top layer is damaged, the plank must be replaced

**Vinyl flooring**

Many homeowners love the look of hardwood but balk at the price and the cost of installation. In turn, many are opting for vinyl flooring instead. This synthetic, petroleum-based material can easily be printed with designs, leading to the creation of a wide selection of vinyl flooring that can very closely mimic the look of hardwood — but at a lower cost.

From vinyl tile to vinyl plank, there’s probably a vinyl flooring that could work in any room of your home. The waterproof nature of vinyl means it can work even in bathrooms and kitchens, and even luxury vinyl is affordable and accessible to many homeowners.


  • Affordable
  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Great in any room


  • Can be scratched or dented
  • Most are not environmentally friendly
  • Hard on feet
Marble tiles require regular sealing to keep them clean and shiny for a long time. Porcelain and ceramic don’t need such routine care, but do stain on top of stains easier than marble because their surface has low absorption properties. Both porcelain and ceramic tiles are made from a clay mixture that’s fired in a kiln, but porcelain tile is made from more refined clay and it’s fired at higher temperatures. This makes it denser and more durable than ceramic tile.
Yes. InHaus Sono Eclipse is PVC-free, made of post-consumer materials and is 100% Recyclable
Each manufacturer has their own suggested care products so we recommend checking with your manufacturer first. In general, we recommend Bono brand products for all hard-surface flooring types; Swiffer brand can also be used. A wet mop with non-acidic cleaner can be used to clean porcelain, marble, and ceramic tile. For carpets, you will want to have your carpets professionally cleaned as most at home cleaners will void your warranty. There are several vacuum cleaners that are approved by each manufacturer, but the use of a Dyson vacuum will void warranty. 
No, but we can order product only for you. The arrival time will depend on manufacturer and materials selected.
Each product will come with a manufacturer warranty. Our install warranty is 2 years from date of install.
