Empire Today in Tampa, Florida - They make me lose maney and time
hi empire today i am not a empire customer , i am installer from the tampa market i just want to tell to the big head of the company the reason of the poor installation and poor customer service from the installer to the empire today customers it's because the jobs are assigned to installers who give money for jobs , those work all the week and they take the big jobs , those are not installers they pick up the paperworks every day then they post on craiglist.com looking for installers what nobody knows but anyway they send to the costumers houses , that's why a lot of complaints , very low scores , when in the office 8 professional crews do not get jobs and go home every day just because they don't pay for work , your guys must review that situation . everybody (installers) been waiting for everything change but now is like it was before with different people ....thank you !!!!
Empire Today Laminate a rip off !
Well, Empire Today finally called me after several emails. The "instillation inspector" that came out last year did turn in her report and after EP reviewed it, it seems the problems I'm having with the laminate I purchased is MY fault! According to them, because I have pets, they are the problem as well as I am not cleaning my floors correctly. I am supposed to use a spray designed for laminate floors, which I do. I am to believe that my dogs *** so much all over my house that they have caused the laminate to peel up. Right! First of all, they don't *** in the house as a rule. Second, if there is an accident, I certainly clean it up immediately. I find it interesting that the places where there has been dog urine on the floor are NOT the places where the problems are. The "warranty" only covers fading from sun and a couple other things that I can't recall at the moment but they were not any of the problems I have. DON'T buy laminate from ET ! I have one room that we installed PERGO in ourselves and that laminate is likesteel! It still shines and nothing has caused any problems. I mop it with lysol and water and it doesn't faze it! Live and learn! Should have gone to Home Depot and bought Pergo! Empire Today SUCKS !!
NEVER EVER EVER buy laminate from this company! The product is inferior! Have had it three years and the edges are lifting up and the trim is coming away from the walls in places. I already had Pergo in one room that I installed myself and it is practically indestructable. You can use anything to clean it and it has been down longer than the ET product and looks ten times beter. I can never recommend ET to anyone. It's expensive and so not worth the price. Of course the "warranty" does not cover the problems. Bad experience overall. Stay away from this company.
Empire Today in Tampa, Florida - Empire did not honor 10 year warranty.
Empire installed berber carpet in 2 rooms. After 6 mos it started to show wear,had someone come out and said nothing wrong , although it obviously showed wear near the entrance and under desk area. Last time I vacuumed it pulled a long row of yarn out of the carpet leaving a deep ridge near the entrance of the master bath,.Very disgusted with the warranty of their product. Would not recommend to anyone , they are the worst company we have ever dealt with. Their advertisements are totally misleading and their customer service sucks! We are very much dissatisfied customer !!!!.
Empire Today - Botched Install and Customer Service will not Help!
At first we were very happy with our new laminate flooring, with both the quality of the wood and the install was quick and relatively painless. However, as time wore on, we started noticing the laminate loosening up in the middle of the room. After about a year, it started buckling, and over the last six months has buckled up over 4 inches off the floor to the point of breaking at the seams. Repeated calls to Empire Today customer service has led no where. They've promised to come look at it, but never show up. Corporate always has to defer to the local office where we find a black hole. Calls to the local office always transfer to corporate. We finally got a general manager on the line to tell us it's not thier problem anymore because it's beyond the 1 year installation performance period. I said okay, but I still need it fixed even if I must pay for it! Manager promised a call-back, and guess what... I have not heard from Empire since. I've now had multiple other flooring companies out, and they all claim it was a botched install because the Empire Today installers did not leave any expansion room. They cut the laminate all the way up to the baseboards, and now that it's expanding some, it's causing the buckling in the least point of resistance, which is in the middle of the room where there is no furniture. Now I'm having to pay ~$3,000 for another installer to pull it all back up and relay the laminate, and it's not Empire Today since they will not stand by thier poor craftsmanship.
Empire Today _-Warning Seniors
Claimed to have 60% off. I had 2 other comapnies come in after Empire did my kitchen in my trailer ($1,300 AFTER 60% OFF) and was told I could have had my whole place done for what I paid Empire Today to do Kitchen. I was had! The guy from Empire wnated $1,500 to do my living room in the trailor that could have been done for under $250. I do not recomend Empire Today to anyone. They took advantage of my age and inexpierence. It is no wonder they can afford all the TV adds. At what I paid it made me sick.
Empire Today in Tampa, Florida - Wont return a call on a warranty issue.
We had our laminate flooring installed in July of this year and have had them out several time to repair it. The flooring has separated, buckled, scratched etc. All of the things they have said would not happen. I just had them out again, for the third time, the Tuesday before Christmas. Four men came to look at the floor at 5:30 in the evening. They took pictures and I was told that it wasn't an installation issue that it was a manufactures defect and would have a manager call me back. Well, two more phone calls to Empire and I'm still waiting for a return call. I've been told that their is nothing they can do, it's the local offices job and that they have to call me back. This is ridiculous!!!
