      I've purchased carpet and hired Flooring America to install carpet on many jobs flawlessly. This last job they did had some extra measurements added during the project. We also decided to do plank instead in an entry room. The revision communicated to the contractor was not communicated to the salesman. The carpet charge only showed complete sq ft, and I was not aware it included the entry room. A few months after the install my JV investor questioned the carpet price and amount noting it was a lot for that size home. I asked for the layout print from the salesman to reassure him and after receiving it I inquired if I was charged for the entry room. The salesman assured me I was charged for it. It was never carpeted as it had been planked though. The sub contractors said they didn't have any carpet left and the contractor admitted he was not on site during install...

      Short and sweet, I paid for the carpet and the install in this room and yet received neither. I contacted the owner of the company Sergei because my salesman who is also a friend said he couldn't refund me. The owner proceeded to say "I was calling him a liar" and he "trusted his contractors" and "what should I do? Take money from my contractor or from kids college fund". He kept saying "I'm not a corporate business". He even accused me of transitioning my business to a relative in a competitive local store, which I have never bought carpet from. Also he even mentioned I may have ripped the carpet out and then planked it; insinuating that I was trying to steal the carpet. I work with contractors daily and trust is a very big deal to me, it's the only way this works.

      Unfortunately the backbone behind this business trusts the sub contractors behind his contractors more than his customers... and I have been a repeat customer that has had a lot of homes carpeted through them. Very unprofessional to make your customer eat the cost here. And very unprofessional to make it this personal or to accuse. I simply did not receive the carpet or the install that I paid for regardless of the "record". I'm using a different carpet supply and install company now.

      Not Recommended in any way, we spent a large amount on flooring with this company, it was supposed to be a good experience, I outlined many good questions at the sales point, how long would it take, where is the wood made etc. Well it's not made in America per the box opposite to the label and also there is a sign says products made in America, was trying to avoid Lumber Liquidators issue they had years back, the job took 4-5 days, yes three guys showed up 1st day but one left early, next day 1 guy, it's because they have other unfinished jobs, house was upside down for a week, lots of lost work time,

      We had a major issue that the owner was very unprofessional in our opinion, seems more centered to profit vs long term satisfaction or even reviews- again my opinion, the brands are 80% off brands, what I mean is you can start a flooring co, get the wood presented like the other companies and behind the scenes be a small company, what I mean is will this company back warranty 10 yrs from now, probably not and the co we bought the wood from was very much like FA not easy to work with, while I have no proof feel the reviews could possibly be fake, just look how great the reviews are but this is opposite to what you see on the BB site. it’s a 1 star and will say ditto to all the bad reviews,

      This was one of the worst customer experiences I have had in as long as I can remember, how are the Yelp reviews so good, usually using a name of a sales rep then so many can have a bad experience, how can they promise 1-2 days installation and it takes 2-3x longer, how can they say made in America ask me about and sell imported wood, how can they have such bad reviews on BBB yet YELP and Facebook is perfect, it's just fishy, I would in my opinion run far from this company, it took a great experience and turned it into a nightmare, be cautious if you have an issue to sign anything. The above is my experience and opinion with FA to express my 2nd amendment right from my own personal experience. IT was a REALLY bad experience that I would have never done but rather used LOWES or Home Depot.

        I had a man accept a job to install flooring in 5 rooms in my home. He claimed he sent an email to me about all the supplies needed for the job. He did not send it and was incredibly rude and condescending when I told him I never received it. He only worked 2 hours the first day and laid half the floor in the biggest room. The next day he finished that floor but did not cut out enough for the registers in the floor. He laid most of the floor in the next biggest room and did a horrible job. The pieces are not interlocking. There are bumps and gaps. He only worked 2 hours that day. Then he said he didn't bring the tools to do the job he accepted and refused to come the third day.

        I feel like I got played by this guy. He took a job, laid flooring in the biggest rooms to get square foot prices and was hostile enough to make sure I got rid of him and wants more money now. After turning in a complaint the people he deals with in as pertains to contracts will not refund anything, want me to sign that I will only say it's been resolved to my satisfaction. I find this appalling. This man shouldn't be allowed in anyone's home. Deeply unsatisfied customer. I only gave 1 star because it required at least one but they deserve much less.

        Tiles were replaced.

        Original Review: Feb. 13, 2021

        January 12th 2021 install. Tile and carpet the whole house. When I walked in to check out the job two days later the house was freezing cold due to the window being open in the kitchen. My first thought in looking at the kitchen floor was that an animal had entered through the open window and relieved himself. Upon inspection, some of the tiles looked yellow versus the Shaw Floorte white I selected. In the installers' rush to do the job quick they placed the yellow ones in the middle of the floor. (I can tell by the lack of attention to detail that they rushed). I contacted the sales person and sent a picture. The salesperson advised that the tile colors can vary by run. I said that yellow is not good. The Shaw rep was to be in touch but no feedback on resolution since the January 12th 2021 install. The carpet install on the 13th looks good...but kept the window open. I was prompted to post this today after paying the high January heating bill for an empty house.

        We had our hallway and stairs measured for wood flooring. I don't know anything about flooring so I trust that the sales team did. Well what the sales team DID NOT tell me was how long it would be to get our order in and that the whole order was a "special" order. Well after chasing them down to find my order and set up an installation date, the help was minimal. It was like they got my money and now you are on your own!

        At long last it was installed and the install company was great and the work impressive. However I had about $500 of material left over that was never used. I called the store and well guess what....they do not accept returns on special orders. This was NOT my mistake, it was ordered but was not needed and due to the policy I was stuck with product that I have no use for. If they did accept it on return they force a restock fee of something like 70% of the cost. That to me sounds like a double dip. They sell you stuff you don't need then call it a special order and buy it back from you at a 70% reduced rate from what you paid for it!! They will not help you after the sale and they will stick you whenever they can. Save yourself a headache and pass on this company.

        Do NOT do business with this company. Our homeowner’s association placed a $14,000 carpet order through Howard ** in January 2020. He basically took our money and has not returned any communication to us after months of attempting to contact ** to find out where our carpet/money is. He has ignored us. We also reached out to multiple contacts at Flooring America corporate and CCA Global Partners and they have done nothing to help us get our money back. I attempted to work with Keesha **, Nancy ** who is the VP of Member Services and Brian **. These people have ignored me as well and it is now almost July 2020.

        We still have not received our money back. We have engaged our Home Owner Associations law firm and are in the process of filing a law suit against ** and The Flooring America Mill Store, Georgia. I am also in the process of filing complaints with the Better Business Bureau in Charlotte, Lagrange GA, and Earth City, MO where Flooring America is apparently based. This is a dirty, dirty organization and it is unbelievable that a company would even think they can get away with this. Stay FAR away from them!

        Our contractor suggested we visit Flooring America to purchase our flooring. We were told $3.39 square foot and when it came time to pay we were charged $4.09 sq foot. And the salesman said he had no idea where I got that price. I had confirmed the price several times and he insinuated that I was lying. We were not told it was "special order" or that there would be a $75 truck charge either.

        When I asked if there were any discounts he said he was giving us $100. Actually the $100 was a coupon I had gotten online. He was not giving it to us. This brought our total $800 more than my budget but I was on a tight timeframe and didn’t have time to start all over. After the job was finished I had 2 boxes unopened and wanted to return them. When I called to discuss it I was told it wouldn’t be worth it as I would have to pay 25% restocking fee and another $75 trucking fee. I was totally ripped off. Nowhere on the invoice does it say "special order". My husband is 77 yrs old and I am 67 and on a fixed budget and I have cancer. We were taken advantage of as elderly folks by a crooked salesman.

        Love the end result, but demolition of tile flooring and customer service was very bad. Crew did not take care of my personal items, walls, baseboards, cabinets, toilets or appliances. We were told that the crew would be bringing a machine to remove the tile and that it would lessen the dust. Crew came with a hammer at first, then electric chisel and then vented the dust into my garage. I had already asked that they not open my garage door as all household items and electronics were stored in there, but they did anyways. Master bathroom toilet broken, dents in dryer, dents in walls and dents in kitchen cabinets.

        Now that the toilet is broken, a cut around, as quoted and written on the sales order, cannot be done. A plumber was need because the flange is now too high. $900.00 dollars later we can use our toilets again. Contacted the salesperson with pictures of the damage several times. The installation department sent someone out to fix (patch), putty and paint at the baseboards. The other damage was not addressed until after 30 days. A GM with an email address of "Carpet One" came to my home. 5 days later, I received an email (when I was promised I would hear from them the next day) that they will only pay for the toilet. So, their lack of care, costed me an additional $1,5000.00 to fix their damage to my home. Installation crew was great, too bad demolition and customer service is absolutely horrible.

        I purchased a 5 Star rated hardwood floor from Flooring America for my new home. It's Maple which is supposed to be a "hardwood". The floor was beautiful for a few months but it scratched easily and I was told it was the finish and that wasn't covered by the warranty (REALLY?) After 3 years the floor was chipping and splintering, believe me you wouldn't want one of these hunks of wood stabbing you. Again the store I bought it from said that this wasn't covered. According to the 5 Star Warranty it covers 1. Wear - Warranty 50 years 2. Finish - Warranty 50 years 3. Structural Integrity - Warranty years 4. Manufacturing - Warranty 50 years 5. Installation - Life of floor Warranty 50 years.

        My floor falls under at least 3 of those! After much persuasion they said they would replace 10 boards. This wood is in my whole first floor but what was I supposed to do? So they replaced 10 boards and said that was it. The house is 5 years old now and the floors look horrible. More splinters are appearing and you would need surgery to get it out. They are so big. Our children are grown, have only a cat and take our shoes off at the door so structural integrity not so good. THEY DO NOT STAND BY THEIR WARRANTY.
