I scheduled a estimate with Empire Today. Salesperson arrived on 11/4/16. Very nice while here. Signed a contract for the install to happen on Tuesday 11/8/16. Gave them a $1,000.00 for the deposit Received absolutely no telephone call follow-up as to what time the installer would arrive. I started calling the corporate 1-800 customer service number. The rudest people I have ever spoken to in my life. "sorry to hear that, understand your...

I called customer service yesterday and asked if they could tell us morning or afternoon because we took a day of vacation for carpet installation on Wed. The CS rep was a condescending *** and said no they can't tell you until the trucks are loaded in the am. I explained that I didn't want a specific time, just morning or afternoon so we would only have to take 1/2 a day off work. He continued to be a condescending smarta$$ so I hung up....in...

I had to get carpet installed within a week, so begrudgingly, I went with them. Also, there "half-off" promo is a total scam. They don't give you any prices on the carpeting upfront, so you have no idea what your getting half-off of. The carpet that I supposedly got "half off" of was approximately the same price of similar spec carpeting at REGULAR price in a big box store. There's no deal at all there. The idiots they sent to install the...

Years later I thought I'd try them again for carpet--after all--how hard could that be? The first day they showed up and tore out all my old carpet only to discover they didn't have enough new carpet to do the job! The second day they showed up, threw the stuff down and took off in a rush--with a half-*** install job which is now lumping and sliding down the stairs! I called customer service and they sent someone out who told me it had been...

Had my living room, stairs hallway and two bedrooms done.You could see the seams in the carpets in the living room and bedroom. Called customer service and they said they would send someone out. Took time off work to wait for someone to come, no show. Called back going to send someone out again. No show, called and they said someone had come out and there was nothing they could do. Told them that haven't even showed up. Sent someone out again...

His response was Empire will only do vinyl or carpet because my house was built in 1958 the floors are not level. He showed me samples of the vinyl which I was impressed with so I contracted with Empire to come out on 9/8 to install the vinyl floors. The day before the scheduled install 9/7 they called to verify that someone over the age of 18 would be available to greet the installers and let them in. The day of the original install date...

I am highly dissatisfied with my overall experience with Empire Today. Even with a "50% off" sale, the price far exceeded what I had expected to pay. Even the medium quality carpet is thin and the carpet backing can be seen when I brush my hand over the carpet surface. This was not like the sample I was shown. The first time the installer came, it was at the last possible time based on the quoted time frame I was given. Not only that, but...

Total terrible customer care, poor sales pitch.Salesman in Toledo (Doug) came across so shy-stee and fraudulent. Late for installation, Installers couldnt speak english. (Was not even employed by Empire) So i wondered, who did i really hire?...huum. Anyways late for the job, couldnt even perform the job due to no padding. Smh....wow. Then had the nerve to tell me they wasnt sure if they could even comr back the next day.(Had to reschedule all...
