"Looks as if it aged 10 years"
After 1 year the carpet looks like it has been down for 10 years. We
purchased Berber carpet and we are seniors with no children running
around and the mat in traffic areas are horrible. We contacted Shaw and
they said it was normal. I will never buy from them again they do not
stand behind what they sell.

"Shaw carpet warranty"
Installed most stain resistant carpet available. Immediately begin to
stain in traffic areas with minimal use. Immediately contacted Shaw of
product concerns. After 18 months of email, inspectors, carpet care
Shaw refuses to help. Very unhappy with carpet and Shaw
representatives. Will never use Shaw products again!

"Worst crpet ever, don't buy it"
I bought this carpet 4yrs ago. We go away in the winter so actual use is
about 2 yrs. The carpet looks terrible. They say it stain resistant but
after several try stain still there. Had it professional cleaned the
stain remains. There is only my husband and myself no pets. Where we
walk it is matted even after vacuuming. They had their rep come. There
answer vac daily in heavy traffic area, I guess going to our bedroom is
a heavy traffic area, not at 74. This company does not stand by it
warranty. My advise is do not buy this carpet.

"Twist carpet still shedding"
I bought a Shaw twist carpet for nearly the entire house. The first few
vacuumings filled the canister. Complained. They said it was normal and
would stop shedding in about a year. Three years later still filling
canister each time. Calling Shaw again but probably get the same bs line
I've received before. "The shedding is not a problem." I spent far too
much money to get the run-a-round.

"Not a Good Choice"
Caress is very soft, but the pile is so high and thick that our
expensive vacuum cleaner will not work on it -- even at an extra high
setting. Vacuuming becomes an extraordinary chore. Check for other
brands, styles before purchasing -- or at least make sure your vacuum
works with it. Wish I had thought of that before spending so much money
on the carpet!

"Caress vs best"
We got the Platinum quality of the Caress carpet. Like others, it was
matted and "corn rowed" in months. But, inspector agreed the twist had
come undone. Covered under warranty. Going to replace it with a
different, albeit cheaper carpet. Thinking about getting "the best"
carpet. Wishing the reviews were more specific as to type. It has a high
durability rating. If anyone has that- would like to hear reviews.

"Two different grades"
Will not stand traffic. First carpet was replaced under
warranty. Went with higher grade more expensive 2nd time with same
result. If you are stupid enough to buy Shaw carpet after reading
this you deserve what you get.

"Worn and matted"
Had this carpet installed in October 2013. It looks like it has been
down for 13 years or longer. It looks worn, matted and very disgusting.
Inspector came out and said it's fine. I am going to see an attorney
regarding this matter. There are 3 adults living here, no pets and no
children. By the looks of the carpet you would think that a dozen people

It started showing wear within a few months. It is dirty and packed down
and looks like a worn carpet.

Had Shaw carpet installed in December of 2013. It began to ripple and
soon we had waves so large I could not vacuum over it. A Shaw "rep" came
out and was mystified. He said an inspector would be contacting us.
We're still waiting. If Shaw has any plan to lay the blame on us I will
be contacting my lawyer and suing them in small claims. Everyone should
do this - you will win. Take photos, keep meticulous records, and sue.
It's time for people to stand up to this sort of blatant
