Ordered carpet for my brand new Family room from Empiretoday. One room and a stairway. $1200.00 plus tax. Took a day off from work for installation. The installers arrived at quarter till ten. I showed them the room and explained that it was a brand new room and asked them to be careful of...

[Resolved] Empire Today / commercial grade carpet

Reviewer66977 on Feb 12, 2016

We wanted an indoor outdoor carpet for a sunroom that leads out to the yard. We have dogs and empire came and visited. They showed us a few samples to choose from and we selected the carpet based on longest warranty - be careful - they don't honor the warranty. Within 3 months the carpet...

[Resolved] Empire Today / carpet installation and customer service

Reviewer72038 on Jan 28, 2016

We had carpet installed in 5 rooms in our home. There are no pets, children and we are only here half the year. In less than four years, we have had the carpet stretched twice to pull out the 'wrinkles'. The serviceman came out and said we would need to steam clean the carpet. In addition...

[Resolved] Empire Flooring and Carpeting / luxury vinyl tile

Terrance Flanagan on Jan 11, 2016

We had Empire install some Luxury Vinyl Tile and were happy with the installation but not the tile. The tile looked like it was factory seconds. We were told the best products will be used and they will stand behind the product. So far I have not heard back from the salesman nor the...

[Resolved] Empire Today / laminate installation

Reviewer63247 on Jan 8, 2016

I sat down with Empire Today's salesman, Sean and decided to go with their 50/50/50 deal for installation of laminate floors in my master bedroom and office. After researching several other local companies, I believe this 50/50/50 deal is a scam. My fault for not searching prior to going...

[Resolved] Empire Today / manufactured hardwood floors.

Reviewer47159 on Oct 7, 2015

I am a real customer — run.. Smiling salesman says "how much do you want to pay?" wanted cash before install. Put new floor over wet sub flooring. Promised to repair twice. First time, forgot the glue, second time had wrong color flooring. Then corporate office that is in chicago, would only...

Yoko B on Oct 1, 2015

I made an appointment to get an estimate for replacing a carpet for 10/01/2015 between 5pm and 7pm for the estimator to meet. On the date, I called few times prior to the appointment time to make sure my appointment is confirmed and informed them that I was coming 1.5 hour away each way...

[Resolved] Empire Today / misrepresenting product

Reviewer69372 on Sep 23, 2015

On 9/23/15 the Empire rep came back. We were going to install porcelein woodgrain tile in the main level (~800 sq ft) but could not find a tile we liked. That job (with underlayment, complicated grout lines, and labor was bid at >8000). We decided to go with hardwood instead. Even though...

[Resolved] Empire Carpet / Carpet and window coverings

Reviewer25651 on Sep 15, 2015

Sub par customer service!! Installation is shabby and rushed. Was told that installers are employees of Empire Carpet, not contracted and all English speaking (sales guy's words, not mine) which surprised me as any installation of any kind is usually contracted. That was a ploy to get our...

[Resolved] Empire Today LLC / laminate

Reviewer64605 on Sep 3, 2015

I scheduled an in-home visit to get details and measurement of three rooms. That appeared to be ok, however then the installers arrived the measurements were not accurate, and they did not get adequate bull nose to finish the edges of the laminate. The in-home agent told my husband that...

Empire - Today Flooring / poor workmanship, breach of contract with respect to payment, damage to property and the list goes on...

Jilltork on Jul 30, 2015

Avoid Empire-Today at all costs! I come from a unique perspective in that I worked as an Independent Sales Contractor for Empire for a year and a half. Unfortunately, I cannot speak to Empires business model or practices due to a confidentiality agreement, but I can speak as a customer who...

[Resolved] Empire Today Carpets / awful everything!

Stephaniei on Oct 4, 2014

The only reason why I'm writing this is to stop someone from even getting their "free estimate." First I scheduled a day & time, which had to be a 2 hour window. They did not show up at all. Then a representative called me later that day to reschedule, after I said no, forget it, he...
