"Worst Floor ever"
Mohawk vinyl floor has been down 3 years now. Separates at seams and
peels. Started separating instantly. Now separating more. Filed a claim
with Mohawk 3 years ago and they refused to do anything. They have no
warranty. Please read other reviews.

"Mohawk engineered wood flooring horrible!"
My husband and I recently moved into a newly built home in Austin and
were told by the builder how solid and highly durable the Mohawk
engineered flooring is. Well... lets put it this way... I would prefer
to have the cheapest Pergo over this soft non durable
scratch/dent/gouge susceptible floor! We have no kids or pets that
would increase the risk of damaging the floors. A feather could drop
and would cause a dent or scratch! We now spend our time tiptoeing
around our house as means to limit any damage. This is no way of
life! Anything we drop renders a 100% chance of denting, scratching
or gouging! I cannot imagine how much more this will cost us to demo
and replace this floor!

"Doesn't click into place."
My husband and I bought our second home recently and the first thing I
wanted to change was the master bedrooms flooring. It was a very
outdated carpet so I purchased the Mohawk Proclaim plank collection in
a very cool looking grey. 3 days! My husband and I have been trying to
get this flooring to lock in for 3 days. We are not professional
installers by any means, but we did manage to put down the same type
(different name brand) flooring throughout our first house without any
issues. Did I say this flooring sucks well in case I didn't, it sucks!
I've finally given up and have decided to buy another name brand
without this Uniclik crap that doesn't click into place unless you hold
it upside down and bend it the only way that you can't possibly bend it
to hear the "click". Never ever ever will I buy any Mohawk product
again! I don't know about how the wear and tear is... since I can't
even get it to go into place to begin with. Poor product in my upfront
and honest opinion.

"Useless 50 Yr Warranty"
I had this floor installed 2 years ago and have been disappointed with
it's quality from the beginning. Even more disappointing is Mohawk's
refusal to honor their warranty. The floor dents and scratches easily. I
do not have a busy household and the floor looks like the PGA tour came
in with their golf cleats.

"Mohawk engineered wood flooring"
This is by far the worst big ticket purchase we have ever made! We
spent almost $13,000 upgrading our new home 5 years ago with Mohawk
engineered wood. It looked beautiful when we moved in, but immediately
started to chip, scratch & peel. It is horrible in any area that gets
any kind of traffic. Nothing you do to try & repair it works. Years ago
I sold flooring & Mohawk carpet was an excellent product so picking
their flooring, I felt confident we were making a good decision. Sadly,
this purchase was a big mistake. I will not recommend or purchase
another Mohawk product because obviously, their quality control is

Our builder installed Mohawk engineered hardwood in our home. This is by
far the least durable floor we have ever had. We had to have boards
replaced even before we moved in and now there are scratches, dents and
gouges all over the floor. We are extremely careful, clean the floor at
least daily, do not wear shoes in the house, have bottoms of furniture
covered with felt pads...even with all of that, the damage is horrible.
A cardboard box, rubber wheels on a toy truck, a sippy cup will dent and
scratch this floor. We were going to get a dog and now we can't because
they would be completely ruined immediately. Additionally, the putty and
scratch fixers do now work on these floors. This has caused a ton of
tension and aggravation in our family to the point where we cannot even
enjoy our home because the floor are so easily damaged. I would never
recommend this floor to anyone and there is simply no durability at all.

"Token offer until sued"
Purchased Mohawk Hickory in December 2013 for my daughter's condo.
Immediately after installed noticed cracking and poor finish, which
worsened with time. Mohawk inspector agreed but Mohawk claimed inspector
was stating it was for only 15 boards which they offered to replace. I
pointed out the areas he tested were the sample areas and the whole
floor was defective. Hired my own expert who confirmed 80% was face
checking or "drying defect". Mohawk then offered to send replacement
floor of equal value and pay for reinstall but would not refund the cost
of the Mohawk floor and install cost. After I filed a lawsuit they
immediately settled for full amount of floor, install, tear out and trim
work that had to be redone with new floor.

"Don't ever buy any Mohawk products!"
I recently had our home installed with Mohawk hardwood in 11/2015 by a
reputable and experienced installer. Within 2 weeks of installation, the
floor started buckling and cupping badly. In addition, the "floor" layer
started peeling up from around the edges of the floor segments. Mohawk
sent someone out and 3 months later I received a decline letter saying
that they do not observe any manufacturing issues. I purchased Mohawk's
hardwood flooring mainly because Mohawk was the brand name and according
to their website, they claimed they stand by their products, "We've got
you covered" so consumer can rest. What a joke! We did our whole house
and now I am at a loss what to do at this point. I will hire an
independent inspector at my own cost for second opinion and escalate
this matter Don't ever buy any Mohawk product!

"Divets and cracks in engineered oak flooring"
A true disaster of a product. Every day I see more divets, cracks in the
very thin veneer plus the top coat is cracking. The routing bits used to
form the end joints must have been very dull for some are actually
shredded not allowing a tight joint. The installation from Flemington
Dept. Store in NJ was equally as bad.

"Should have stuck with the old floor"
We had a designer tell us that Mohawk laminate flooring was a good
replacement for our current light hardwood floors. She stated they would
be lower maintenance, good with cats because they don't scratch easily
and are easy to clean. We loved the color and were really excited until
after living on the floors for about 2 hours, we dropped the iPad (the
first time we ever dropped it) and it shipped about a 1/4-inch divot in
the floor. Then the cats knocked metal bed frame off of a shelf that was
put there when they were working on the floors, and 2 more divers in the
floor. Then we saw a scratch along one of the boards in the main hallway
that we have no idea how it got there. We never noticed any scratches on
our lighter, hardwood floors. When I asked about this, she said it's
because it's darker wood and since it's laminate, the lighter color
underneath shows through more. Since we were told it was more durable,
we did file a complaint with Mohawk flooring but they said there weren't
responsible. We now also have a spot in the middle of the room that has
raised up and looks like water somehow collected, but it is nowhere near
anywhere any liquid could come into contact with it and have not heard
back from them. We were told they would like tell us it was our own
water damage somehow. So these floors that were supposed to improve the
re-sale value of our home are likely now going to be a bargaining chip
for the next owner. Because if it was me, I would demand for them to be
replaced/fixed by the owner before buying the condo or ask for a large
discount because I would want to rip them all out and replace them
myself. Moral of the story is, we were happier with our previous
flooring and the $20,000 in our pocket we had before we replaced them.
