"Don't ever buy any Mohawk products!"
I recently had our home installed with Mohawk hardwood in 11/2015 by a
reputable and experienced installer. Within 2 weeks of installation, the
floor started buckling and cupping badly. In addition, the "floor" layer
started peeling up from around the edges of the floor segments. Mohawk
sent someone out and 3 months later I received a decline letter saying
that they do not observe any manufacturing issues. I purchased Mohawk's
hardwood flooring mainly because Mohawk was the brand name and according
to their website, they claimed they stand by their products, "We've got
you covered" so consumer can rest. What a joke! We did our whole house
and now I am at a loss what to do at this point. I will hire an
independent inspector at my own cost for second opinion and escalate
this matter Don't ever buy any Mohawk product!

"Divets and cracks in engineered oak flooring"
A true disaster of a product. Every day I see more divets, cracks in the
very thin veneer plus the top coat is cracking. The routing bits used to
form the end joints must have been very dull for some are actually
shredded not allowing a tight joint. The installation from Flemington
Dept. Store in NJ was equally as bad.

"Should have stuck with the old floor"
We had a designer tell us that Mohawk laminate flooring was a good
replacement for our current light hardwood floors. She stated they would
be lower maintenance, good with cats because they don't scratch easily
and are easy to clean. We loved the color and were really excited until
after living on the floors for about 2 hours, we dropped the iPad (the
first time we ever dropped it) and it shipped about a 1/4-inch divot in
the floor. Then the cats knocked metal bed frame off of a shelf that was
put there when they were working on the floors, and 2 more divers in the
floor. Then we saw a scratch along one of the boards in the main hallway
that we have no idea how it got there. We never noticed any scratches on
our lighter, hardwood floors. When I asked about this, she said it's
because it's darker wood and since it's laminate, the lighter color
underneath shows through more. Since we were told it was more durable,
we did file a complaint with Mohawk flooring but they said there weren't
responsible. We now also have a spot in the middle of the room that has
raised up and looks like water somehow collected, but it is nowhere near
anywhere any liquid could come into contact with it and have not heard
back from them. We were told they would like tell us it was our own
water damage somehow. So these floors that were supposed to improve the
re-sale value of our home are likely now going to be a bargaining chip
for the next owner. Because if it was me, I would demand for them to be
replaced/fixed by the owner before buying the condo or ask for a large
discount because I would want to rip them all out and replace them
myself. Moral of the story is, we were happier with our previous
flooring and the $20,000 in our pocket we had before we replaced them.

Be warned! These floors are hands down the absolute worst floors in
the industry. Scratch and dent very easily. There are several scratches
we have no clue as to how they happened. We are very clean people with
no animals. We are heart broken. Complete home remodel and kitchen
cabinets are already installed over them. Total cost for material and
install was $12k. For another $3k, we could have gone with real hardwood
floors. Trust me, spend the money for real wood and do not buy Mohawk
wood products. Total crap.

"Worst product ever"
Just moved into a new construction home 4 days ago. This floor is like
paper. Initially blamed the home builder. Thought they had switched
floors on us. They proved they used Mohawk Tagliare Eucalyptus Saddle.
Seeing now the real fault lies with the Mohawk product. We always
thought Mohawk was a quality brand. What a huge disappointment.

Bought and moved into house days before XMas last year. Only lived in
this house now for about 3 months. I was excited when they said we had
Had issues with scratches and such due to "professionals" moving to repair and replace the no working and dented stove. Under home buyers warranty, had the same flooring installers in my house replacing planks, of which I find out the "hardwood" is really cheap laminate glued atop layers of beveled wood. They call this "engineered hardwood".
The replaced wood planks would not lay down flat, so they came out again and replaced yet again. The third time they came out and said the overlap is "within allowable standards". They are supposed to be coming out yet again with another manager to see what and why it is now doing this. I feel for the cement below, and can only pray they are not doing further serious damage.
I have other scratches from whatever misc may have caused them now. I have felt pads on all furniture, etc. I've cleaned my floors on my hands and knees using a spray bottle and approved cleaner/ cloth combo to avoid overexposure to moisture. Easy care and cleaning be my...
There is some water damage from the supposedly water resistant flooring near the fridge and ice dispenser. Also, I noticed a floorboard where the TV is (away from any open water sources), in which the laminate is peeling.
So, worst and most over priced flooring ever! I'd rather have gotten cheap floating floors and replaced every few years.

"Scratches and peels"
Terrible quality product. Scratches and peels easily. Was told by the
building inspector that if spilled liquid is not cleaned up within 20
secs that area of the floor is ruined. Do not buy Mohawk products.

"What a headache"
Built a home with Taylor-Morrison in Florida and the Mohawk engineered
maple is a nightmare. Bubbles coming up on a regular basis. Surface is a
constant challenge as it smears and is very hard to clean. This builder
should not be offering Mohawk. These homes cost far too much to appoint
with junk. Do not settle for Mohawk.

"10 years old, still looks good"
We've had Mohawk's engineered hardwoods in our family office area for
~10 years and it's still looking great, even with a lot of foot traffic.
We're really careful not to spill anything on it or get it wet. I'm glad
it's held up and proven to be a good investment, very easy to keep clean
too. We're looking into new flooring for some other rooms and I'd like
to have these hardwoods throughout.

"Never, Ever Again"
We built a new house last year with David Weekley and had our whole
downstairs done in Mohawk Eucalyptus Rachiato engineered wood. It is
very dark, shows everything and was a mistake, but we couldn't have
imagined how much of a nightmare from the beginning. We have kids and
dogs and realize they can cause issues with a floor. However, this floor
is being destroyed by nothing more than shoes or anything dropped or set
on floor. Even walking is creating dents , holes and white marks that
can't be removed. You can't clean it because any chemical destroys and
dulls it. We were told to use Bona and it is causing an issue now.
Sweepers scratch it. The floor is soft and is now chipping on the edges,
and bubbling up in the middle. The builder, contractor and now Mohawk
rep have come out and Mohawk processed a claim which was denied of
course, with no explanation and I had to call weeks later to find out
that much from the contractor. I would never consider having a Mohawk
product in my home again.
