  • Never Empire!

    After much harassment, this is the email I sent: This is about the sixth, and hopefully final, contact, phone and email, from Empire since I cancelled my order. I consider this badgering and will be reviewing your company to that effect online, and reporting this to the BBB. I was originally quoted a "rock-bottom" price of $3000, which then became a "rock-bottom" price of $2800, then $2700, then $2530, then $2014 - all "rock-bottom" prices. I have found a company who will do the entire job for $1500. And frankly, at this point, I would not consider your... More...

  • Horrible Floor Installation Experience

    The primary reason I selected Empire Today to install new laminate floors in my house, is because of its excellent TV commercials. Empire Today’s commercials emphasized affordability, good service, and high customer satisfaction. In fact, I envisioned myself sitting in my living room pleased and admiring Empire Today’s installation work. Unfortunately, I did not have that type of experience. I was extremely frustrated because I did everything in my power to get this issue resolved Empire Today in a timely manner. On Wednesday, 8/5/15, I signed a contract with... More...

  • complaint against empire

    July of 2014, We called Empire Today. The pushy sales lady came to my house the same day. She did not leave until we signed the contract with her. The next day, i called the company and wanted to cancel because their price was very expensive, and they would not cancel. They gave me a couple of hundred dollars off the carpet and tile installation. We did not have a major problem with the tile people, but we started replacing the carpet August of 2014. The installer was at my house July 28th and inspected my furniture and my house and the flooring to make sure that they have ordered enough... More...

  • Empire Today has lousy laminate

    Do not purchase laminate from Empire Today !! You'll pay a premium price for a low quality product ! Every time I clean my floors I am angry ! If you have kids and/or pets, this laminate is NOT for you ! Even the smallest spill that goes unnoticed will cause the top layer to lift ! There is no product that I can find to sanitize or disinfect this flooring that is safe to use according to Empire Today. The warranty is a farce. It only covers sun damage.Thankfully, I did not replace the Pergo that we installed ourselves in in our office. It indestructable ! Stands up to kids, pets,... More...

  • Empire Today unethical behavior

    I met with a salesman named Wayne D. I had a previous bid from Costco for a very specific Shaw carpet with an exceptional warranty. Wayne quoted me over $8000.00. When I showed him my bid he was able to come down to $20.00 under and assured me that the carpet and padding were exactly the same - made by Shaw and held the same warranty. He also told me that they could put in a finish strip on my hardwood flooring where we had taken out a wall (not done). I received the contract in the mail and noticed that the carpet was manufactured by another company (not Shaw). I called Wayne and he... More...

  • Laminate Floor repair

    The previous owner of my home had Empire Today install a laminate floor. Since moving in the house, a small area was wetted with three or four planks swelling. Buckling resulted. I acknowledge there is no warranty. I need to repair the floor. Empire Today will not assist in the repair and will not sell me the product. They will only sell me an entire new installation.

  • Empire flooring

    I had empire come out and give me a quote on getting my floors redone. I was quoted $16,000.00. It would have cost another $4,000.00 to get my stairs done. I had two other people that got theirs done with Empire and one paid $1,500.00 and the other paid $2,700.00. I thought I was going to faint. They were running a special of buy two get the rest fee after you paid for pad and installation. How could anyone afford that with this economy. I don't think I will be using them. More...

  • New carpet looks 10 years old already

    When we bought our house it needed new carpet. Empire Today was the only company who could install before we needed to move in. Plus, we had used them before and they were fine. We purchased a Frieze style carpet based on our sales reps recommendation. We have owned homes before and did not want cheap carpet that would wear in high use areas. He specifically said this was designed not to wear in high use areas. We were very happy. Fast forward 1 year and our carpet looks AWFUL. Every door way and hallway is severely matted down. The entry hall is just as bad and always looks like... More...

  • Waranty Failure

    We needed new flooring in a major way. 4 children, 3 adults, and pets do not make carpet easy. The salesman was professional, the work was expedient and friendly. The scratch on the flooring that I let myself my self be talked into because it would "handle my household" is going to cost another $125 for them to come out and replace. This scratch is under my kitchen table. No heavy items were dragged there, but after spending $4,000 less than a year ago, they want to start gouging me for any scratch. I was told that they could also come out with a wood pen, but it would cost for... More...

    Had $6000 in laminate flooring installed by EmpireToday and paid installer extra to add extra underlayment.

Numerous calls/emails 2-3 days before installation. Call at 8:30 AM to say installers would be there between 10:30-11:30. Ten minutes later call: "Carpet out of stock.

    We had empire install laminate flooring last year. The sales person was very convincing that we were getting a great deal and would be happy for life. He said the product was the best on the market, and has a lifetime guarantee. We paid $10,000 for 900 sqft. installed. This was with their buy a room get the rest for free deal. 9 months after the product was installed we noticed a few seems getting larger, and then the boards began to pop up. When you stepped on the ends of the planks they would move up and down and it was not uncommon to get your foot or sock pinched. We contacted... More...

  • Hardwood Floors

    Empire Today installed my wood floors. They showed up one person short and before the day was over another person went home early leaving a man and a woman left to install the floors in my living room dining area and kitchen. They were here until 10:00 pm and half way finished the job. The bifold doors were removed and replaced incorrectly and they kept falling off. I was told they would float the floor so it would be level and they only floated 3 places. The floor now feels like a roller coaster when walking on it. It also moves so much the board make farting noises when you step on it... More...

    Showed up 3 hours late, then didn't bring the tools needed. Left and came back with most the day shot. Had to make a 1 day job into 2 days. Costed me another day off work. Installers were 4 Hispanics, with only one able to speak. After 1 year carpet buckled in 4 rooms. Customer service said I would have to pay $200.00 to have it fixed. Told them it should have been done right to start with. Told them that I would rather pay a real professional to fix it. STAY AWAY FROM EMPIRE CARPET. More...

The day we set up for the installation the installers showed up with the wood for the floor. We had been told by Empire the wood would be delivered ahead of time and sit in our house to acclimate for a week.

    My first appointment went well but I unfortunately they seemed to take advantage of my inexperience with flooring. I'm a first time homeowner and wanted something that would last longer than builders grade carpet. I was told the carpet I got was durable and the salesperson knew I had a pet. Only one installer showed up so I had to help them move furniture which I had paid to have taken care of. Then a month later, probably less than that the carpet started calling apart. I called to complain, it took two rescheduled Appointments and some bad excuses for the guy to finally come out.... More...

    Horrible carpet installation and even worse customer service. Our experience started with a pleasant sales person who came over and estimated the pricing.

    Completely disgusted with Empire Today. We had Empire Today install carpeting in a condo that was a rental property. The carpet we replaced was quite old and had some severe staining so we thought it would be a good investment to do the $3K upgrade. The sales person sold us on the carpet because of the 'unmatched' warranty it offered. We were told it should not wear more than 10% in 10 years and if we had an issue, just call customer service and they would take care of any and all issues.
