Empire Today / damage to home and then unresponsive to complaints

Empire Today / bait and switch/terrible installation

We mistakenly called Empire Today to install new carpet in our 1800 sq ft home before we moved in. The installation must have been done by blind monkeys: there was no pad on the stairs, and at various places in the house, the carpet pulled up in the middle of the room, there were seam...

Empire Carpet / Misleading advertising!

On 9/13/07, a Empire sale rep visited my newly purchased home in an effort to offer a free estimate in the hopes of possibly making a purchase. The rep, upon entering the home presented body language as if he knew he would not make a sale that day. And, why waste my time. I do believe...

Empire Today / Shower Installation / very poor service!

I want to add my story to all the others regarding Empire Today. Steer clear from this company. The salesman tells you anything you want to hear so you'll sign on the dotted line. Their installers actually give you supplies for your installed shower stall "in case you need to...
