I had a laminated floor installed by Empire Today. We didn't consider any other brand because we knew what we wanted. Our new flooring is beautiful but we had some problems once we ordered it. When the guy came out and sold the floor, we had carpeting and told him we were going to take it out for the wood floor. When he came out and checked the floor, he said that they would have to do a little bit of plywood in two or three of the spots but when they got here to do it, they had to plywood the whole floor and we spent another $1,000 more than what he quoted us.
