The salesman came out and did a great job "selling" to bad he was full of it! First part was the financing, he quoted me $27000, to which I agreed. I then filled out the finance application which was only approved to 19k. That's when he told me that 19k was the most the finance company...

I guess I should have read all the complaints before I called this company. The installers did not speak any english... the GM in Tampa will not speak to me (the consumer)... he hides be his secretary. Empire Flooring is a joke and they do not care about you after you purchase their...

I didn't finish my complaint above. After the installers did not show up and I never heard about my deposit, Empire called about 2 months later to reschedule my installation. Since I didn't want to lose my deposit (about $200) and we still needed new carpet, I stupidly agreed to another...

My new carpet was installed 6 weeks ago on August 31st 2018. I like the carpet, but the installation efforts need attention. There are two seams in the hallway--one more unacceptable than the other. The tape used underneath continues to make a crackling noise under both seams, but the...

I have spent almost $15000 to have laminate laid throughout my house. First, there was a huge problem with a discrepancy in the price once the installers got here. It ended up having to go through the national headquarters in order for Empire Today to agree to the price I was quoted and...
