An Empire Today executive called me to say that the hollow sound of the floating laminate floor would go away in 4-6 months after installation. I offered a different resolution to replace the flooring with wood laminate that is glued to the concrete floor.
I offered to pay the difference. He declined that offer. I do not believe that the floor noise will every go away. I am disappointed that the company does not stand with the customer, because the flooring choice was made at the recommendation of Empire's sales rep who said laminate floating floors would NOT have hollow clicking noise.
That is the only reason I selected that product. Now I am stuck with it unless Empire agrees to resolve it to my satisfaction with I call them back in August 2021, as they requested.

The Sales rep told me (voluntarily) that laminate flooring would NOT have a hollow clicking sound when you walk on it. Actually it DOES make that cheap sound.
You don't know this until the flooring installation is done. Then it is too late. Empire would not give me a refund. A senior executive told me the hollow sound would go away in four months.
Really?!? This was on top of installers being 6 hours late a
User's recommendation: Stay Away - low price means cheap products and bad service.
