Purchased 12mm Golden Teak Laminate flooring,I followed the instructions and let the wood sit at room temperature in the room that it was going to be install at for 4 days even though the instructions said 48 hrs. After laying 2 boxes I notice that the sides of the flooring went in great but 75% of the ends would not go down, you could see that the ends were showing up, not by much but enough to see a white line on the wood to make it look cheap.
I called the store, talked to Mike, he said to open all the boxes by tearing the ends off and let air hit the flooring for another three days, three days I could not work on the floor which put me behind. I went to the store seeking help, they acted like I did not know what I was doing, so the store manager pulled in a favor from one of his professional contractors. He came to my house and had the same problem, he notice the end of the board, the grove was not deep enough, he even stood on the flooring and it still did not go down. The contractor called the store and told the manager his findings.
I called to return the flooring, they said they could not take back open boxes, they thought I had opened all of them as they requested me to do.
I only opened 4 boxes, so they refunded 8 boxes. A lot more to this story, so I am heading to small claims court.
Reason of review: Damaged or defective.
Monetary Loss: $1400.
I didn't like: Not getting a full refund, Ask me to open all the boxes, Hey would not take open boxes.
