Review:
"Had a year and is great"
We had installed about 1000 sq ft of knob creek hickory hand scraped. We went on the advice of a local flooring place in farm country in Illinois. Had a great guy install it. It is only my wife and I, no pets. I see alot of negative reviews, I know everyone has an opinion. But we are very happy.

Review:
"Has Mullican changed their QC standards?"
September 2013 I bought about 1000 sq ft of Mullican San Marco Hickory Saddle 3/8 engineered wood. I chose it because of the 6 ft lengths that are included in a standard box, I also needed a color match to our oak staircase and this was a perfect match. I followed instructions and stapled it to a 3/4 inch plywood sub floor in September/October time frame in the north east in house with AC set at 73 deg. I say this so you can understand the humidity at this time of year. It was the first floor I had ever laid. I had no problems with almost all of the contents in terms of quality and it was easy to fix a few boards, and only a few, that were damaged or incorrectly manufactured. The location was a upper floor and included a master bed and two other bedrooms as well as a long hallway and balcony. This statement is written almost 4 years after installation. In this time I have had two small chips, and they were very small, come off the main body of the underlying plywood. Easily fixed with a color pen and the result was invisible. The top of the staircase obviously gets the most wear and is in great condition, no chips, no lifting. Some 6 ft long boards were curved slightly but they were easily corrected if you pressed them down against the floor and tapped them into place. I took a piece of waste material and nailed it to a piece of 4 X 2 with the groove facing outwards and used that to hammer/tap the sections into place. I had no problems with this material at all, I had a roofing felt underlay, stapled every 6 inches with a Lumber Liquidators staple gun (awesome tool by the way). I have just one area of squeaking on my landing, after about 2 years of use, but I am sure that is my sub floor not the hardwood. I will fix that with special screws. I was worried that my installation might have been too tightly fitted. It wasn't and the wood just never moves, no expansion, no contraction in the dry winters, my 3/4 Bruce oak floors on my first floor are tight in summer but I can see the sub floor in some places during the winter. Now 4 years later I am about to do another 500 sq ft, not connected to my other rooms and I read some of the issues regarding Mullican. I was shocked and hence my question, did Mullican change their QC standards. I am now very concerned about using the product again. I wrote this review to let folks know how this product wears after 4 years of use. If anyone has a comment on the QC issues I would appreciate the feedback.

Review:
"Would not stand behind product"
Redid an entire floor of our home in this product. Had a reputable distributor go to bat for us with Mullican when it was learned that the finish was lifting off of the planks. Shameful response on the part of Mullican.

"Horrible quality"
Paid extra for an upgrade to Mulligan Quail Hollow hard wood and have had nothing but trouble with the floors. Squeaks, pops, and board separation in all installed areas. Avoid this company like the plague!

Review:
"Peeled, holes, falling apart"
I had Mullican saddle oak flooring installed in the entire downstairs of my home less 2 years ago. The wood has literally peeled of the planks, there are holes that have developed in some of the boards, the flooring is absolute crap! I called the installation company repeatedly for months who told me they had to contact the manufacturer I.E. Mullican and someone would get in touch with me. After 6 months, an independent flooring inspector came out and agreed that the wood was literally falling apart. Not normal wear and tear! Of course Mullican disagrees and is refusing to honor the 30 year warranty on the floors. Will never purchase this brand of flooring again and now working with the installer to try to get this crap pulled up and a new flooring installed by a different manufacturer. Really wish I had the extra funds to sue this company, but need floors to walk on.

Review:
"Buyer beware"
We recently installed about 1500 square feet of 5" hardwood floors made by Mullican. I wish we would've found these reviews before we bought because they are all dead on. There's an unacceptable amount of waste (about 30%for us), it's very splintery, and there's a huge milling problem resulting in boards that are thicker in height, wider, or skinnier. You can imagine the installation nightmare as a result of the milling issues. There's also a significant issue with consistency of color. Once installed, they snap and pop when you walk on them. I couldn't, and would never, recommend these floors to anyone. I would be very diligent in reading reviews before purchasing Mullican flooring.

Review:
"Run, run away from this product..."
I wanted a very light, neutral colored floor and thought I'd found my dream floor in Mullican Castillian Oak Glacier. I ordered 65 boxes and let it acclimate the appropriate amount of time in my home before installation. There obviously isn't quality control as about 20% (yes, you read that right) was waste product that couldn't be used. The reasons were varying - color, holes, missing tongues, warpage, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah! I would very carefully read all reviews on various flooring before making the decision to buy Mullican. I understand there will always be something in a box that's not usable but their quality is completely unacceptable. 20% waste is ridiculous. There's also squeaking that wasn't in the sub floor before installation. I'm stuck with this floor but you don't have to be - Beware!

Review:
"Horrible Floors"
Put in about 1000 square feet of flooring. Has a haze on it and an uneven finish that looks horrible in any light. Scratches with any type of movement, I mean even with sneakers. Tried to get some input from the company and local rep. Total waste of time.

Review:
"Very poor customer service"
If you are the type of person that expects even a whisper of customer service or any kind of product related information... Run don't walk. I had trouble finding a product that they manufactured for Lowes (after installing 1200' of the stuff). And they could not even grant me a response E-mail. This after at least 4 attempts pleading for help. Cost me a good customer... I will never again buy from Lowe's or Mullican. I am going back to basics- hometown store/reliable supplier.
