Review:
"Terrible company"
Purchased Shaw carpet. Took 5 weeks to come in. Came in with blue dye streaks all over it. Pictures taken and submitted weren't acceptable. Sent an independent guy to my home as carpet was just laid out and not installed. He scrubbed with a tooth brush and a bar of soap for over 30 minutes. Ink did not come out! Reorder was delayed due to they say a backorder but don't believe it. Took over 7 weeks for new carpet to arrive. Rolled out to cut and this carpet had orange dotted ink spots all down the sides. Now they insist on replacing it for a third time in lieu of refunding my purchase. Don't buy their carpet!

Review:
"$2,500 of carpet sold by a worthless company"
Freshly installed in an empty house on 13 Feb 2017 (moved in 03 March). Two spots showed up where the carpet pile detached from the backing. Submitted a claim with photos of the damage through the store I purchased the carpet from and received this from Shaw: "The photos show pulls and snags. The fibers are still attached to the latex; this is considered locally caused damage. The fibers should be trimmed to minimize further damage. If a sample of uninstalled material is available, please forward a 1'x1' to the address below for testing at the lab. At this time the claim is being closed." No representative from Shaw even bother to contact me about the issue. I wish I had looked for reviews prior to my purchase.

Review:
"Worst than worst carpet"
For carpet that cost over $3 a square foot, it is the worst carpet ever. We have had the carpet recently installed. We are two older adults so there is no kids in the house. Don't by it if you do. We have vacuumed and cleaned as the paperwork says, but the carpet is still matting and looks as if it is 20 years old. I have even tried a different vacuum and it still does not help. I am stuck with this carpet for many years to come and I regret putting in my house. The carpet that I replaced was put in back in the 70s and it was in better shape after 40 years. I wouldn't put this crap in a rental home. And the bad thing working with the Shaw company is the worst. I am surprised they have a Better Business Bueroue rating like they do. Customer service sucks, can't get any help...nothing out of them. And the place we bought can't help either. Worst of the worst.

"Very dissatisfied"
We purchased $8000.00 worth of carpeting. It has pulls and runs and looks terrible. Shaw sent out an independent inspector. They say there is nothing wrong which in reading the other reviews seems to be what they always conclude. At this point we cant afford to replace. Never buying Shaw again.

"Pet protect-it isn't"
We purchased Shaw Petprotect Bianca Sammy Berber Indoor carpet. We were told by the Lowe's salesman that it would protect against cat throw up and dog accidents. It does not. My cat threw up on it and it is as difficult to clean as my 12 year old carpet was. The salesman did not tell us that my dog's toenails would snag the carpet with just normal wear. The installer told us that. It does snag and must be clipped or the carpet will run. I will have a bald carpet in a couple of years.

Review:
"What Warranty?"
The Shaw carpeting in home received stain from water leak. According to website Shaw gurantees its carpeting against staining. Tried cleaning carpet but stain remained. Wrote Shaw only to discover that Shaw requires customer to have carpeting professionally cleaned every 2 years in maintain warranty. Cost of professional cleaning equals a 1/3 of the cost of new carpeting plus padding and installation.

"Not Happy with Shaw"
I replaced wool carpeting that was 30 years olds with Shaw Caress Artisan. I've had it a year and religiously followed the recommended vacuuming and cleaning. I have had it one year and know for sure that it will not look decent in three years. It pulls, acts like a dirt magnet and doesn't look clean even after a professional clean. The stairs are horrible. It has some fancy guarantee, but after reading these reviews, I don't have much hope. I should have just done hard floors since the cost of replacing the wool was too much.

Review:
"Do not buy Shaw Carpet"
Worst carpet ever! Picked the basic carpeting (in order to save a little money) for a new home build. Matting after 6 months. Warranty does not cover. Offered to replace with exact same carpet. Declined because we don't want to be inconvenienced by the disruption of installation and the matting would/could happen in another 6 months. Wears horribly. Would never purchase Shaw carpet again.

Review:
"Worst Company Ever"
I contacted Shaw customer service, asking them if they could provide the specifications for the carpet they manufacture: Weight(Ounces per square foot), Thickness(Typically in Denier), Density(Threads per inch). Here is their response(verbatim): "We have no way to search for products..." In other words, Shaw, purported to be the largest carpet manufacture in the world cannot provide the most basic information about their carpets. If pre sale support is this bad, can you imagine how poor the post sales support must be.
