Empire Today - Carpet Seams visible and bubbles at seams
I had carpet installed on June 1st and 2nd, 2017, by two different crews.This first crew on June 1 did a bang up job (that's good).
However, the second crew didn't properly glue the seams together in order to hide them. All the carpet was the same, no differences in carpet. Also one area is showing a failure to "kick" tight the carpet in order to glue it down. Now, two weeks later, I still have not received a "repair" visit.
I called on June 2 to get a repair person to come out, minutes after the installation crew left. Wed would be the first appt. Fine, I said. Wed...
no call, no repair guy, so i called, ok, we'll do it on Friday. Friday... no call, no repair guy, so i called customer "no service" again and they told me they were escalating my request and that someone would contact me within 24 hrs. NOT.....
Finally, a lady in the Atlanta office called me to set up, yet another, appointment, today 6/15/17, between 8 - 12. Well, at 8:00 am I received the automated call, "you're not as important as you think, so we'll get out there this afternoon", message. So i called and left a message and followed up with an e-mail to the lady who assured me this would be done today. Well, now at 3:33 pm on June 15, no installer has shown up, or called.
But the lady did offer to schedule a repair team for Saturday. Saturday, if you can't get out on Wed, Fri, or Thurs, what makes you think they'll show up on a Saturday. The scheduling of the appointments is not the issue, it's the crews not showing up or calling to update you on their estimated arrival time. I've been waiting now 2 weeks to move into our new home, since i don't want to move furniture for the carpet guys, only to continue to wait and be put on a back burner.
