"Horrible flooring and management"
We bought and had Manning Flooring installed September 2013 in our
foyer, living room, kitchen, hall, closets and master bedroom. Within a
year that the floor looked warped around the edges but could not feel
that it was warped. We Manning and they sent out 2 men from their
company to evaluate and they could not figure out what was causing the
issue and indicated that their moisture devise was not picking up on
moisture damage. Manning then scheduled for a professional flooring
technician to inspect our floors. The warped condition was through out,
even in the bedroom and closets. Several weeks after the inspection we
received a letter from Manning stating that the condition of the floor
was not under warranty because it was due to moisture in the air. I
requested a copy of the report and we were denied. So I don't know what
the report actually stated but moisture in the air sounds pretty cheesy
to me. It's now October 2015, 2 years later and several thousand dollar
floor already needs replacing. It's not a good floor if you plan to walk
on it so I highly suggest not to buy Manning flooring because they do
not stand behind their poor quality product and they are very nasty over
the phone when dealing with issues. I will never ever buy this brand
again. Too bad because we are getting ready to add an addition on to our
house and Manning flooring is not even an option. Very sad because we
paid good money for our floors. I suggest to look at reviews before
purchasing any flooring. I wish I did.

"Why have a warranty you won't honor"
We purchased over 800 square feet of Mannington engineered hardwood when
we built our home in 2008. Within 3 months of installation we noticed
the finish on a few of the boards was starting to split. Mannington was
very good having someone come out to look at our problem. The man said
he could definitely see there was a problem. Mannington would not honor
their warranty saying the problem was caused by the humidity level in
our home. It is now 2015 and we still have just those same boards - no
new problems and we have not changed one setting with our humidity
level. The problem was definitely with Mannington yet they would not
cover our floor. I will never purchase flooring by Mannington and I will
let others know of our dissatisfaction.

"Laminate with non wood print"
We purchased a Mannington Quality Laminate Floor called Natural
Berkshire Maple. There were problems with cupping, chipping, and the
worst was a print on the ends of many boards. The prints were 4.5 inches
by the width of the boards. It reminds me of the reddish bricks that have
holes in them. Maybe from the machine that grabbed the planks after
cutting them. Warranty? Nothing wrong with this product. It was tested!
But they will give us 5 more boxes to compensate for the printed boards.
Nothing wrong with this product the print belongs there? 5 more boxes?

"There is no product warranty - it's a misnomer"
We paid for an upgraded product of the Mannington hardwood floors. We
have had splitting and shifting problems since they were installed. I've
contacted Mannington, it took them over 6 months to process our request
for a warranty repair. They came back with an onsite issue. They do not
feel the splitting and shifting is part of the product deficiencies. I
feel this is such a bait and switch on a warranty. There is no warranty
on this product. Please do buy with the comfort of thinking this product
is like real hardwood or will last like real hardwood. It's cheap and
unreliable. We had no say in who installed the product and because of
that it's falling apart. Mannington is no help.

"Mannington is not honorable"
Poor product. Splits and cracks due to rotary cuts. Mannington states
that they have never honored a warranty because the consumer has no way
to prove it is their fault. They think this is funny.

"Mannington Engineered - AVOID"
Mannington Blue Ridge Hickory Engineered Hardwood (premium, 25 year
warranty) was installed in our new home. Within 18 months the flooring
exhibited cracks at the end of the boards and within 24 months the
boards began peeling and cracking. Within 36 months - the boards had
severe cracks and splits; in fact - if you walked on the floor barefoot
- you got splinters in your feets. Mannington agreed to send an
inspector who verified that the condition was throughout the house; the
inspector indicated that the boards may not have been kiln dried as all
environmental conditions were within the Mannington specifications
(I.E. humidity was within the specified range, there was no excessive
moisture, floor cleaner used was approved). He stated that he would
submit a report to Mannington within the week and we should request a
copy of the assessment. When we spoke to Mannington, however, they
refused to provide a copy of the report - stating they paid for it and
it was confidential! And although Mannington reps confirmed that the
report did not identify any environmental or installation conditions
which could have caused the splintering - Mannington insisted that this
did not mean that the product failure was due to a manufacturing
defect. This made no sense of course...if the product failure was not
caused by environmental conditions in the home or by improper care -
the only other cause could be manufacturing issues. To appease us,
Mannington agreed to have the installer take out three boards and
return them to the factory for analysis; per Mannington the results of
that analysis were "findings of severe cracks and splits of unknown
cause"; since cause was unknown - the claim was denied. They said that
although their warranty states that they warrant against buckling,
warping, separate of plies (and all these were present in our flooring)
- the warranty is only valid if the home owner can prove it was due to
their manufacturing process...and since the consumer has no way to do
that - they rarely have to stand behind their warranty (yes - the joke
is on the consumer). In fact, today the supervisor suggested that maybe
before we moved into our new home there was a flood that we were not
aware of - or that someone tried to clean our wood floors with a carpet
steam cleaner. Being a new home - this is highly unlikely. Conclusion-
Mannington does not stand behind it's products. The 25 year warranty is
worthless. Do not buy from Mannington. Retailer/installer confirmed
this has been his experience with Mannington and he no longer
recommends consumers the brand.

"Beautiful Floors, Not Much Durability"
My husband and I first had these floors installed in the early 2000's and loved the transition from plank to plank. The physical seems are very smooth, but you can easily tell that each piece is its own separate plank. What I least enjoyed about these floors has to be how easily they seem to scratch, they were installed in my living room and did not do well against the furniture. About halfway through their life (2005), my husband and I had to get the scratches repaired, which was easy enough and not so costly. However the process was frustrating and since then we have been much more careful about installing special feet for the bottoms of our furniture so that the floors would be preserved. I would likely recommend these floors to a friend, simply because of the aesthetic value, but would warn against how easy it was to scratch them.

"What we think of our Bamboo Floors"
We put in bamboo flooring almost two years ago when we redid our finished basement and first floor. We chose a lighter color for the basement and a darker finish for the main floor (living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathroom). We wanted a very durable and strong floor since we have three large dogs (nails on those floors!) so we went with bamboo because of its durability and look. We love the way they look; we love the three inch planking as opposed to wider planks and the feel of them under our feet. We haven't experience any problems with them as of yet. They've held up to three big dogs and two rowdy boys just fine with no real scratching and no warping. My husband is a contractor so installing was easy. (They are the nail down, not the click into each other type). We haven't had any issues that warrant repair and we have recommended them to many friends; we will at some point redo the floors upstairs as well and I'd love to have the same flooring throughout the whole house.
