I had carpet installed on April 5, 2018. We replaced the carpet in the hallways and an office. The carpet looks great, however, the padding is a lower quality than what's in the rooms off of the hallway where it was replaced. As a result, when you step into one of those rooms, you can feel...

We hired Empire to install flooring and it was a nightmare!! They took konger than expected, broke some of our items, laid crooked floor tile, left the place messy, and didn't pull up the grout from the prior floor tile until they were caught. We were told that we did not have to move...

3.30.18 I was scheduled for a Hardwood Floor install, when the team arrived I was immediately given the impression that they didn't want to be there, to service a black man. Mr. Oakly was doing all the talking and his team mate didn't say a word. They were on site for about 15 minutes and...

Jim John Brown on Mar 30, 2018

The second salesmen were terrible. Only showed two styles and did not give sales that was advertised. The wrong flooring was sent and then they could not match the stairs. They lied and said the cherry wood would change colors in a couple of months. All mangers and human resource people we talked to were very unprofessional. Will never use them again.
