I am on my 2nd bad Shaw carpet. You would have thought I would have
learned after the first event. The dealer in small town has been very
good about the first bad carpet which occurred during the first 30 days.
It began to fuzz up and the fibers untwisted along the sofa and also in
front of my husbands recliner. We were asked a lot of questions but the
maker did replace it at no charge saying it was a bad batch. The
replaced carpet is doing the same thing after 3 weeks, The story seems a
little different now and it sounds as tho we are at fault for either
wearing slippers or socks or going barefoot. What baloney! It is the
type of carpet as the first Shaw carpet we bought held up great, From
then on it has been downhill. Would never buy a Shaw product again. We
have had to move furniture in three rooms 2 times and here comes a third
in 2 months.

"Worst Carpet and Service"
Carpet started to snag in multiple places less than 30 days after
installation. I called Lowe's and they opened a warranty ticket with
Shaw. I sent in a sample and Shaw denied my claim - as did Lowe's
saying it wasn't their problem! Worst carpet ever and even worse
customer service on both ends. Needless to say, Shaw and Lowe's have
lost a customer.
Sad too because I have more than one property and will need more carpet and home improvement work. Bye Lowe's!

"Great carpet, lasts long, and easy to clean."
We are needing to replace our Shaw Cabin Creek Carpet that we have had
since Jan. 1996. We have had excellent wear on this carpet and after
reading all of these reviews on current Shaw customers, we are leery of
purchasing Shaw carpet. We are looking at the Shaw Clear Touch carpet
and was wondering what people have thought of it. The Shaw carpet we
have has been a great carpet that has been great. It is a Nylon carpet
which might be why it has lasted. It has been super easy to clean and
spots has always come right up.

"Paid for good, got cheap carpet"
We paid for highest grade carpet but they sent cheapest grade to
installer. Three weeks later they are still testing a sample of their
product to determine if the wrong one was sent. Shaw will not correspond
to us directly and keeps giving vague answers to the installers (Lowes
Home Supply). Lowes isn't doing much to help either even though we
ordered carpet through them and paid for installation.

"Showing wear and hard to clean"
The seams in this carpet are terrible - Already showing wear lines after
less than 6 months. Worst decision I have ever made. Exceptionally hard
to clean spots.

"OK if you don't walk on it"
Not only does Quiet Comfort III show every footprint but it is a dirt
magnet. In one year it is dirtier than my previous carpet which I had
for 20 years. I followed the 13 step laborious stain remover process
suggested by Shaw and bought their stain remover to no avail. Shaw
customer service wrote "This is an ultra soft luxury carpet which can
require more attention than standard carpet... Daily vacuuming of the
traffic lanes may be necessary." Daily vacuuming! Who does that! I now
have runners down on very section that sees traffic. It is not
attractive. Btw warranty is valid only if you have the entire house
cleaned every 1-2 years. I bought this through Costco and really
expected a better product.

"Shaw dealer in Denver"
There is a dealer of Shaw flooring and carpeting in Denver named Floors
Free, Inc. It is owned by Bryan McGlasson who has owned a string of
essentially one-man flooring companies in the Castle Rock, Colorado,
area including the failed flooring sales and installation company Direct
Flooring and Design, Inc. Watch out for this guy. I've seen him work and
he just slams in the work. Do your research thoroughly before you hire
him. I will never use him again.

"Ask your sales person to educate you before buying"
Make sure you do your own research before buying any flooring and
understand your findings. I bet every single one of you who left a
review on this site did not know what he/she had bought. Shaw has been
in business for a long time, it is the biggest flooring carpet
manufacture in the world. Do you guys think if they only make bad carpet
would they stay for that long.

We had Shaw carpet installed 5 years ago and it began to stretch
immediately. I did not think to call Shaw and see what they could do. I
was thrilled to see how fast they wanted to work with me. They sent out
an inspector and he determined that it was not installed properly. They
said they would have it done for me. I asked them if they would like me
to help find an installer near me and they were very receptive to my
help. I found Empire Carpet in Indio Ca and an estimator came out right
away and within two weeks an entire crew of men came out to move
furniture and reinstall carpet. It is clear to me that Shaw was correct
and it was not installed properly. They paid for the reinstall and I
could not be happier. Elaine Parker at Shaw Carpet was amazing and I
would recommend Shaw carpet to my friends. You just have to learn to be
kind and patient with people and they rise to the occasion. Thank you
Shaw Carpet and thank you Empire Carpet.

"Backing detaching, Granules clog vacuum"
We purchased a new townhome recently. We have lived in our home now for
7 months. Our carpet looked good on day one, since then there has been a
drastic decline! This is to say the least. We have the "Simple Times"
Shaw carpet. This was supposed to be top of the line. At least that's
what we paid for... Yea right! The $6000 + carpet is coming apart! The
glued mesh backing is detaching from the wool carpet. I pulled a piece
back and noticed the glue granules from the mesh backing were like sand
everywhere. This is what was in my back me bag. I kept hearing the
gradual shoot up through the tube. I figured it was dirt... Yeah Right!
Not only have these granules been clogging my vacuum, I'm replacing the
bags more $$$. I called the company and they came out. The inspector was
really nice. He told us he wouldn't put this "crappy, low quality
carpet" in his home. The manager at Shaw came out to investigate the
carpet... We've been waiting now for a month and 1/2 to hear back from
him. This is crazy! We're calling tomorrow! We want our $ back so we can
get some quality carpet for less. If we don't get the results we deserve
were taking actions = law suit, BBB and going to the local TV station 5
on your side! Why is it that quality is so damn hard to find these
days? And does anyone stand behind the truth anymore? I'll be updating
you with the end outcome...
