"Very Poor Product and Customer Rep Service"
We bought their laminate flooring. Very poor product. The ends and sides
buckle up and you snag your socks,and also your mops/rags when cleaning
the floor. This happened in only one day. Took the service rep several
days to return our call and without even coming out to check the problem
he stated "there is nothing I can do about it"! Very poor product and
extremely poor customer service! A complete waste of your money. We
had to buy new flooring.

"Another unsatisfied customer of Shaw Laminate"
Very Inferior product. Terrible. Buckling and warping. Company rep
blames the way I clean my floors. No other laminate I have had
experience with has done this. Now I see many many many dis-satisfied
consumers reviews on the internet all with the exact same complaint.
I hope everyone will stop buying their products so no one else can

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, its junk. I couldn't even get a
contractor to work with it. The company was of no help whats so ever.
Don't waste your money

"Never buy Shaw"
Never buy their product. Although installation may be some of our
problem, they refuse to accept responsibility for chips and splinters -
tell us to cover them with a marker. How long should we do this? Until
we fall out of a wheelchair? They should sell markets with the flooring
so customers know they are necessary.

"Beautiful floors - couldn't be happier"
Our Shaw hardwood floors are beautiful and we couldn't be happier! The
planks have individual detail that give the flooring character and set
it apart from laminate or the older traditional 3" wood floors.

"Shaw warranty is a joke"
I installed Shaw laminate flooring in a customers home about a year ago.
2 weeks after it was installed a couple corners started to raise. Within
a couple months several areas started to bow up at the seams. Spots
started to "bubble up" in different areas about as big around as a
tennis ball. I sent a "complaint form" into Shaw. It took them nearly 2
months to reply. Then a Shaw "inspector" came to the home and did his
inspection. Shaw denied the claim. Shaw says its caused by moisture
claiming that the homeowner must've had a ice maker leak? Mind you that
there was no ice maker even there! The inspector claims that the
"bubbles" had 99% moisture but when he went less than an inch all the
way around the bubbles there was 0% moisture. (Makes no sense to me) I
completely built this kitchen and bathroom/laundry room for the
homeowners. Floor was laid with moisture barrier and whisper walk. Its
continuing to get worse throughout the floor. Ive been reading reviews
from several websites and all of them sound almost exactly the same with
the same complaints. Its obvious that its a material defect but Shaw
refuses to pay for it. This is b/s! The homeowners cant afford to
replace all of this. They spent their savings doing this complete house
remodel. Now their very upset that they have the entire floor on this
half of their house looking like crap.

I'm a gen contractor and use a lot of laminate flooring. I decided to
use Shaw laminate in my home. Picked one we liked and installed about
1000 Sq ft. After 3 years of using a recommended Swifter 3 times a week
the entire floor began to warp. Shaw said too bad this is water damage so
we won't do anything.

"Laminate = Not good ?"
Looks good... in a photo or from a distance. Gaps everywhere and very
easy to scratch. Installer has come out to fix gaps once. Does this
stuff shrink after install?
I would never buy this product again.

"Would not recommend Shaw flooring"
Installed Shaw laminate flooring 6 monthes ago. Have denting issues
where our kitchen chairs sit. Any water or liquid that is spilled on
floor seems to leaving a water stain that can not be cleaned up. Floor
has never looked clean always had a film. Company was contacted about
issue in our kitchen. Seems Shaw will not stand behind their flooring.
It was always my dream to have wood flooring all over my home. Now we
are stuck with this mess. I would not recommend this flooring.

"Worse flooring ever"
Don't buy! I spent a good deal of money installing into my entire home.
The floor is streaky looking and never looks clean. I filed a complaint
which they denied. The independent person that came out said they was a
coating on the flooring. Shaw denied saying it was the cleaner I use,
the one they recommend! My new house looks like crap because of this
nasty flooring. Buy Pergola. I had that in the past and it was promo!
