In short I needed to buy about $7,500 worth of materials and flooring for a remodel project. All of the positive things I have to say about the service at this regular business hours. If you need help finding something after 5:00, forget about it. You might as well shop in the middle of the desert! haha
My specific review of this
The problem I have with this HD is this:
I needed 950 sq feet of hardwood or laminate flooring and 450 sq feet of carpet for a house I am remodeling. After comparison shopping, my carpet choice came down to a Flooring America product or one from
with HD nonetheless, moreso out of convenience than anything else since I was buying the rest of my supplies from there.
Now bear with me while a change gears for a moment: As for the laminate, HD had a special on intallation of laminate flooring for $499 for the whole house, up to 1000 sq. ft. on any laminate over $1.50/sq ft. purchase with a qualifying under-laminate. Not surprisingly, they have a bunch of laminate around a dollar a square foot, and a bunch about $3/sq, but not hardly anything around $1.50. They did, however, have a nice enough laminate for $1.39/sq. ft. I asked if I could get installation special on that laminate since I was spending about $5k with them on the project and was told no. I then asked if they could up-charge it .11 sq. ft. so that it would qualify and was told, "yes". So I scheduled a measurement.
Getting the meaurement scheduled, or rather getting the measure done in a timely manner is a whole other story - the delay in which cost me a few hundred dollars because another promo for 10% off the entire purchase (of over $5k) expired while waiting on the measurement to be done a week and a half later because the measure HAD to be done before I could make the purchase during the promo period (which expired the DAY before the measurement was done). ARG!!!!!!!!! (BTW, whining about this to customer service was worthless.)
So back to the real story... When the measurements finally arrived at the store, the guy helping me in flooring saw in the notes that I was going to pay $1.50/sq ft for the $1.39 laminate I chose. He laughed and said he was not going to
So at this point, all is good save a couple of frustations: (1) the approximate $500 discount I lost due to a promo expiring while I waited a week and a half for someone from HD to measure the flooring; and (2) the fact that according to HD's own measurement, I had 940 sq feet to be floored in laminate. Their special installation price was for "up to 1000 feet". Now I understand that when you have 940 square feet of floor space, that you will undoubtedly need to buy more product than that to account for cuts and partial pieces and such, generally to the tune of approximately 10%. I get that. What I do not get, is that while they sell you 10% more product (unused boxes of which can be returned), they also charge you installation on the "extra" product. So since this estimated extra 10% of product pushed the total square footage OF PRODUCT over 1000 sq feet, I got charged an extra hundred buck or so for the estimated square footage of PRODUCT purchased, regardless of the actual square footage of the floor space to be covered! Having to buy extra product, I understand; having to pay for installation on it above the actual square footage to be covered, I do not. Nonetheless, I was told by some guy name
So back to the biggest issue... After I paid for the Carpet (yes, we've switched gears back to the carpet now), I examine my receipt that evening to realize that I was charged all sorts of extras that I had not been explained to me. About $300 worth of extras. I went to HD the next day and asked about the "extra" charges. I was directed to a guy named
Much to my surpise, the guy ACTUALLY deducted the additional .11/sq. foot from my refund on the carpet that I cancelled after I discovered the
I called the next day to share my experience with a store manager. I learned they don't have a store manager right now and that the store manager's duties are being shared by the three assistant managers. So I left a message that was returned, but that i missed, so I returned that message to learn none of the acting managers were available at that time, so I left another message that was never returned.
End of story. The bottom line is (1) don't buy carpet there without getting a written estimate of all charges first so you can compare apples to apples, and (2) WHATEVER you do, don't have deal with
A final side note is that while the pro-services guys are great (at least
Meanwhile I have company coming and mirrors and sinks that I can't reinstall until this issue is fixed. I ended up telling Home Depot to give me a refund on my backsplashes and I would just fix it on my own or live with it. They gave me a refund. I then had a mirror guy come out and he explained that the cut of my granite and what I want to do, requires this one space to be filled in. I went to Home Depot and asked if I could get a 21 3/4 in backsplash cut and they said nope sorry! OMG!!!! So meanwhile, everyone in this area has said well you shouldn't have gone through home depot. I then called NF Granite directly and they said oh let me see what we can do, we'll call you tomorrow. Guess what? Haven't heard anything. I have had to contact Silestone directly. I hope they can get this one piece to me!
high. It took a little over 2 weeks to get it back and it was working good.
We would definitely do business with this provider again, overall we had a good experience.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
