"Don't Buy the 5 in 1 Transition Strip"
Purchased Quick Step laminate flooring from American Carpet Wholesaler. I bought 3 5-in-1 Transition Strips and only 1 worked. The tracks are plastic and the top strip has to be hand milled in order to fit. If you take off too much it will be too loose and won't stay attached. I asked for a refund and American Carpet Wholesaler said they submitted a claim. The Quick Step manufacturer, Unilin Flooring, said they did not and the BBB said Duh. The flooring itself is ok.

"Love my Quick Step"
I had Quick Step installed in my kitchen eight years ago and it still looks like new. There are two adults in the house plus one cat. It is easy to clean, does not scratch and is great. I do wipe up spills right away and I mop it with a Swiffer that is wet. I like it so much that I am going to have Quick installed in the living room and bed rooms.

We bought a house brand new that had these floors installed. They looked nice but the realtor warned me to never ever let water sit on them and never clean with a wet mop. I decided to use wet swifter pads to clean it after months of trying to just spot clean. The issue with the spot cleaning was every spot looked dirty. With in months it was bubbling in several spots. I found a spot under our couch one where it had bubbled. I have no idea how water would even get under our couch. Two years later several spots have shipped and bubbled. Once my husband dropped a object with spiky ends onto the floor. It pierced right through the floor. These floors never look clean either I even steam mop them and they look awful and it's hard to find things that are even safe to clean the floor with. We recently had a leak and need to replace the floors and I couldn't be happier. I don't know how good our new floors will be but anything had to be better than this junk.

"Do not buy quickstep horrible cloor"
We were told this was a high quality floor but it is just the opposite. After a few months we started having water damage and puckering along the joints and sides of the floor. We originally had Wilsonart but had a water leak and needed to replace the floor, so we went with what we thought was a good quality product. No one told us you could not spray cleaning product or water directly on the floor. When we bought this product there was nothing on the Quickstep website that said to only use their products, only spray on the mop not the floor and wipe up any wet areas immediately. This is ridiculous and almost impossible to get your floor clean. Before this happened I recommended this floor to a friend and now they are having the same problems. I would love to have a class action suit against Quickstep. I am so disappointed with this floor. If I had the money I would replace it.

We have had nothing but trouble with this floor. It was installed about 3 years ago and we started noticing white spots showing up all over in various places. We also have scratches all over and a film we can not get rid of. The rep came out and looked at it, stating it was probably how we had maintained it. Luckily we had purchased it at a flooring store and had it installed by them. The store owner has been pushing to have it replaced. They came out and took two boards out to be tested and so far they haven't done anything. We are still waiting, they were out again today and said they would get back with us. We put this in when our dishwasher leaked and we had to replace our pergo. My eldest son used to sneak in with his roller blades on and our pergo always looked good.

"Why don't lemon laws cover this?"
Quick Step is made in the USA (patriotic) has a wowing 25 year warranty. And we spent over $3/sf because you get what you pay for, right? Wanted a tough floor that was easy maintenance. Liars! No kids, or pets. Scratches, "smears" that won't come up, bubbles where a drop of water hit without our notice. The rejuvenating products just smears worse. Quickstep people Yelled at me! She said I used oil product (not) to clean it and have to hand scrub it with kitchen scrubby and alcohol! CRAZY, Tried it anyway and of course, it doesn't work. Their customer service person yelled at me like a grade school teacher to a slow troublesome child. She said it was my fault and therefore invalidated the Warranty. Shouldn't there be a class suit action against Quickstep?

"Do not buy this flooring!"
My elderly parents had this flooring installed and it started chipping and warping within 3 months. Many of the chips are along the walls (not even in high traffic areas). The manufacturer said, of course, that it was a usage problem on my parents' behalf & not covered under the "warranty"! Do not buy this flooring as it is overpriced and poor quality!

"Worst Flooring Ever!"
This flooring is horrible. We purchased a brand new home with Quick Step flooring and within 2 weeks the boards started separating and the seams started to bubble up. Also, this flooring is impossible to clean, its as if there is some sort cloudy substance on it, every footprint shows. I contacted the builder who said to contact the rep for Quick Step and the rep agreed with me that I was using the correct cleaner & that their product shouldn't be performing this way. However, the response from Quick Step was that because I used a damp mop to clean the floors this was why the seams were coming up and the floor was separating. Their warranty is crap, they are just coming up with ways not to have to honor it. Do not waste your $$ on this inferior product! It is the worst flooring I have ever had in a home and that includes government housing! I would never purchase any products from this company.

I had quick step laminate floors installed by a professional flooring company and 4 months I cleaned my floors and noticed a couple of the planks swelling , call the company and I would have to pay to replace it, after reading all the complaints I am sold this is a very cheap product and I waste my hard earned money , should have went to Home Depot better quality.

"don't buy it"
I have had my floor for 4 months and it started to curl and show seams with in a month of install by a professional. I had a wilson art floor in my dining room for 12 years exposed to cats, a small child's spills etc and never had an issue. On the other hand, my quick step is deteriorating badly and quickly. The store sent a rep over to see it, which is good customer service, but of course, the first question was, "who installed it?" It looked very nice for the first 3 weeks and then started to show weird problems. It was not wet, the floor is not wet under, I had a full leak test recently and everything was a okay. It also chipped very easily when a wooden broom fell over. The end of the wooden broom hit the floor and it chipped it. Are you kidding me? The only reason I can find to give it a 25 year warranty is because it suggests quality, but it is not. Do not buy this product and waste your hard earned money.
