Bad Allen Roth Purchase

(fishers, indiana)

I bought allen and Roth 10 mm warm walnut in Sep 2014. After a week , I could noticed Poor quality, very disappointed , does not stay clean., smugges, and gets damaged too easy. It was a huge mistake. Do not recommend it to anybody. We put it in master- bedroom, living room , kitchen and entrance.
Last night I bought a steam mop Shark to see if it was the answer to my floor nightmare. It was not, I feel it cleans but floor does not look good.
Looks grease and everything shows on the floor.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND it. By Virginia.

Hi Virginia, I feel bad for your situation. Its unfortunate that we as consumers cannot know for sure what we are getting until after the fact.

I'm glad that you are spreading the word about a product that looks bad and takes a lot of effort to maintain. When I installed the Allen Roth laminate it wasn't like what you are describing.

They sell different variations under the same name. Some of the finishes I've seen on laminate
were very dull with hardly any shine and others were very shiny.

I installed a piano finish which
shined like glass, at the time I thought this is going to show every smudge. I was surprised when it didn't show anything at all, in fact it was a very nice floor and it was hard to scratch.

I think there should be a way for folks to see
the floor before they buy, or at least be informed as to how it will preform.

You never know, maybe Lowes might Make it right for you. Give them a call and see what they say.

Thank You Virginia for taking the time to spread the word.

Allen & Roth flooring NEW
by: Annie

I purchased the Russet Oak flooring from Lowe’s a few years ago. Had it professionally installed and have not had any issues.
But, my son began to do my upstairs bathroom and hallway with left over boxes and I need a couple more boxes. Well, this type ISN’T manufactured anymore.
I’ve been trying to find some anywhere.
If anybody knows where I can find some, please post

So Anthony, you are a flooring professional yet you do not mention installing cabinetry on top of a floating floor is asking for trouble. Another person discusses using a steam cleaner on laminate. WTF You sir are an idiot.

I purchased the A + R russet oak laminate flooring in 2013 and had it professionally installed. Have not had a single problem with it.

Horrible floors
by: Kelly

I too made the horrible mistake of purchasing the A&R flooring from Lowes a year ago. We went with the cafe maple and did our entire house in it. Worse decision I have ever made. They look dirty all the time and the flooring is coming up all over the house. I am basically in tears every time I walk into my house. I would go back to crappy carpet over this any day.
