Empire Today on Apr 21, 2016

I recently made plans with Empire to install tile in my home. The sales representative was very good and we thought we could get the work done without any problems. A couple of years we also had carpet throughout the house and Empire install this with minimal problems. This time is a...

On 2/15/16 we submitted an order for shutters. We submitted $250 and completely financed the order. On 2/20/16 measurements were taken and notified that blinds were orders instead of shutters. We have called 6 times (3/6/16, 3/8/16, 3/12/16, 3/15/16, 3/26/16, 3/28/16) and received no call...

We've had issues with a former sales representative from Empire Today, however the installation of flooring went well. Therefore this time we requested a different sales person to come out for a new order. Brian Hagen was sent to our home. He seemed relatively knowledgeable and friendly...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
