I want to add to the carpet reviews information that all homeowners need to consider when purchasing carpet. Shaw is a manufacture of flooring. And like all major brands like Mohawk, Beaulieu and others, they all have a range of styles and quality. They all have value based products that may not look so great within a few years. And they all have excellent quality that wear well and provide better value by buying more upfront. I read the reviews because I sell all brands. If the review is more specific to the mill's collection or fiber brand, then it would be more constructive. It misleads the customer to say never buy from Shaw or Mohawk or etc.. Homeowners need to keep records should be easier now that they can be e-mailed & saved. Record the steam cleanings, vacuum well with a basic vacuum not an over powered model that may be too hard on most styles. The quality & performance features to all carpet is the style; such as plush verses loop(& many styles between) Type of Fiber and its construction and face weight. The more fiber on that carpet the better. There are other factors, but all carpet mills have the full range of quality. Best advice is to find that flooring dealer with years of experience that doesn't play the carpet sale games and relies on word of mouth to compete with the big box.

"Pure unadulturated garbage"
I moved into my brand new mobile home July 2011. My carpet is unfortunately Shaw. Since day one I noticed the carpet in certain area's around baseboards fraying. We are not talking a little this is a lot. It has snags in it and is showing wear pattern. I live here alone and am very easy on things. This July I will have been here two years. For the past year and 3/4's I have complained to Advantage Homes to no avail. This was all under warranty. Well Advantage bailed leaving me holding the bag and turned it over to Champion who is under the miss conception this can be repaired. Shaw needs a class action suit brought against them. I will one way or the other get this garbage replaced. My next contact is Shaw and from there if they do not reimburse me for this mess so I can go else where I will be talking to 7 on your side.

"Very matted and faded"
In less than one year carpet is very matted and faded/different color in higher usage area. Had carpet cleaned after one year - cleaner said he can't believe how worn the carpet was for one year old. Shaw been to see it - even the rep says there is a problem, but factory denying it. Going to take this one all the way as it now looks worse after one year in terms of wear, matting and fade than the 25 year old carpet we took out. Shaw warranties are worthless - I do not feel I am dealing with a reputable company that stands behind its products.

"I got you Berber"
Had our whole house carpeted in this Shaw carpet in November 2012. I am so very disappointed. It is packing terribly. Only my husband and I, who are senior citizens, live in our house. No other traffic. We were gone for the first 2 months after this carpet was installed. So less than 5 months after installation, it is not holding up well at all. I would not recommend this carpet to anyone.

"Shaw Carpets Like Any Carpet is not Perfect"
While Shaw, like many carpet mills, have a wide range of products. What often happens is the carpet salesperson does not do his job in a professional manner. He usually takes the path of least resistance and sells the consumer her favorite color or feel or look, or fits a low budget, without regard to the carpet's performance. As a result, many cheap carpets end up in living areas that should have had much higher quality carpet for a chance to survive daily living. Sometimes, due to a lack of knowledge, the salesperson never asks the customer what her needs are, but instead allows her to wander around the showroom looking at price tags. Once salespeople start explaining the truth about carpet in general, the less likely carpets will be "oversold" and performance expectations of cheaper carpets will not be too great. When the consumer has a claim these days, she had better have receipts from her professional carpet cleaner, and hope that her carpet was installed according to CR105. Otherwise the carpet mill is not even going to consider your claim. If you don't Know Carpet, Know Your Carpet Dealer.

"The worst carpet."
I agree with almost all the posts. We bought a new home. We had upgraded the carpet and had the most expense padding put in. Within 4 months the carpet looked horrible! We pulled it all up and replaced everything ourselves. Never again with Shaw.

4 years go we noticed our carpet bubbling and crushing and the nap was flat even after vacuuming. We spent a small fortune in upgrading pad and this carpet is in our bedroom and sitting room. The installer came back and pulled the carpet tight again. But we are back to square one again. Shaw is a rip off. Never again.

"Hard to believe"
The string of 20+ 1-star reviews is amusing and really, impossible to believe. I am about to buy Shaw carpet and they are clearly a quality carpet maker.

Worst carpet ever purchased. Called carpet store after six months. It looked worse than the 10 year carpet I replaced. Would love to sue.

"Shaw carpet is the worst"
Shaw carpet is the worst I have ever seen. Carpet was 1 year old, was running the vacuum over the carpeting when all of a sudden several carpet threads unraveled and got caught in the vacuum.About 6 months later the same thing happened.The carpet was supposed to be stain resistant and snag proof,BULL Could not find receipt and called installer to see if they had it,of course they couldn't. So I guess this senior citizen on a fixed income is screwed.
