Any Opinions on Shaw Laminate


I was looking at Shaw brand laminate. I like how it looks and the price is good. However, I was reading on another site, people who used shaw complaining of how it buckles easily and curls up on the edges.

Has anybody had any experience with shaw brand laminate floor. It's tough to gauge because for some of the bad comments from people you will also hear positive things about this brand. Any comments are appreciated.

We've sold a massive amount of Shaw laminate. A lot of it has been the budget level 7mm product to builders. I've only ever had one complaint and that was because the lady tried to wax the floor.

Shaw laminate is a great brand if you get the good quality. Shaw makes the cheap junk to the high end. So know what you are getting. If you have any doubts about the product ask a professional retailer, not a box store.

These are mid-range laminate floor and thus they will normally work for average traffic. You could figure a life of 15 years before she starts to ugly out.
