Poor customer service and wrong productEmpire today installed laminate flooring on the main level of my town home. After installation we noticed that the kitchen was significantly lower than the dinning room which caused our table to sit at a noticeable slope.

8 months later we had our fridge repaired which resulted in a leak and caused damage to the floor. I contacted empire to come out and give me an estimate on a repair of the damaged boards. I also asked for them to look at the level issue. An installer came out and insisted that it was level until I showed him with a level that it was not in fact level.

I then spoke with the service manager whom quoted me $800. When I told her the issue with the level was not our fault she changed the quote to $758. Several weeks later the installer came out to replace the boards and level the floor. The installer installed boards that were the same color but a different finish.

The boards that were replaced were noticeably duller than the ones initially installed. I contacted the service manager twice before hearing back. When I spoke with the service manager I asked that the boards be replaced with the correct ones or a refund be issued. The manager told me they don't always have the same boards so they usually don't match.

The manager then stated she would not issue a refund because they did the work and were repairing something that was my fault was damaged in the first place. When discussing my concern with her response she asked that I send her some pictures of the boards so she could show the installers and ask if they saw an issue.

I did email her the pictures. However, based on her response I'm not expecting much.
