Empire Today - After a few days when glue dried... looks horrible
Had carpet installed 07/14/2017, the final product to finish by basement I worked hard on.So disappointed today when I went and looked at it, the seams don't match up, bumps in the rug, while I know my cement basement flooring has imperfections, this is not professional by no means and for the $1,600.00 I paid, and I waited 2 months for installation so it would be done right.
PLEASE SEE PHOTOS Also there is NO PAPERWORK given at a home appointment, only a small receipt even when I did financing, where is paperwork describing my carpet, and a copy of signed receipt for installation, etc.? Can someone help me if they received something different or they had a different process? Thank you. Issues: CONS - Hard to ask questions regarding the installation process, language barrier with installers.
They could not answer my questions. They were polite and nice, no issue there, as they didn't. There should have been padding put down soon the lower side of the basement, I had called and asked a week before installation. It's probably what they were given by the operations department.
-Why is carpet being installed in the evening when the lighting is poor. I even called to let them know they would need lights as it was a basement, and the day of when i found out it was an evening appointment!!! Those poor installers, actually very young men, I am sure were exhausted, and then having to work til almost 7:30 pm. I am assured Empire Today stands behind their products, guarantees and warranties, we will see what they do and say, as I called Customer Service yesterday and sent email today.
PROS Customer Service- no problems! , calling local number or toll free numbers. They try and help return calls faster than sales persons, etc.
One manager did help me from local office, as well.They should receive bonuses, not an easy job.
