Wish I would have found those reviews of how horrible of a product the shaw epic is before going with them. My reason for sharing my review here is because I want others to know what to expect.

Shaw Epic 3/4 discontinued flooring


I think there should be a class action suit for this flooring. Besides being too soft and aging 15 years per one mine is yellowing and I have had people notice it. I had an ice cube melt on the floor and it lightened and warped the wood. I am certain this would not happen with solid wood that is sealed. I was talked into this product because it was stronger. It is the complete opposite!

I got it cheap through Habitat for Humanity (as a learning project) & put it in a closet. It scratches really easily - my plastic vacuum attachments leave marks. I learned a lot. Never buy this product.

SHAW Epic Engineered flooring


This flooring should not be sold as flooring, it should be considered wall paneling. It is very pretty but within a year of having it installed in the majority of my home it looks terrible. It has numerous dents from even the smallest thing being dropped (ie: romote control, cell phone, keys, silver wear dropped from an open dishwasher 10 inches from the floor, even a coin that my daughter dropped put a dent in it) There is also rippling in some places were SMALL amounts of water was not caught and wiped up right away. If it is anywhere near a seam there will be damage. When I bought this, the sample board info on the back states water and dent resistant....IT IS NOT.

Staining trim pieces, baseboards, etc to match flooring is a normal part of the wood flooring installation procedure. Sometimes you can get finished trim to match the floor, sometimes you can't. Most of the time it's more cost effective to buy stain grade trim and match the floor so that you don't have to stock twenty different brand names and colors for the same same piece of trim.

It takes a half hour to stain and finish trim for a 3-4 bd house, and since the majority of hardwood/laminate floors are the same 4 shades, there's no problem finding the right color stain. It's no big deal.

If you want to do your floor yourself, don't whine when you're required to have a professional level of knowledge and competence in installing the product.
