Lowes in Baltimore, Maryland - Countertops

2.8
Details
Complete clusterf.... from beginning to end. Supposed to get a call within 48 hours after purchase from the subcontractor United Marble and Granite - had to call them after a week. Finally get scheduled for measurement, guy uses laser measurement, sees and measures sink, then installers come out two weeks later and say they can't use this same sink....and go away....and don't hear from anyone....and (again) perform customer (self) service by contacting them. Contractor tries all sorts of variations on somehow it's our fault. The best (worst) part of all this is they left a small piece of counter at the house and I noticed it wasn't cut square. I couldn't get anyone to answer why it wasn't cut square. Finally after 4 weeks of pathetic and apathetic responses from Lowes I just packed it in and asked for a refund, which took another two weeks. Later when I made a complaint to Lowes Customer Service they said they'd call within 48 hours to discuss. 4 days later I received an e-mail from the local Lowes - an e-mail that neither addressed me by name or apologized - basically a “this concludes our business” letter. This after they claimed "world class customer service". I used to always go to Lowes, now I never go to Lowes - even though it's the closest of that type store. Never will again.

Lowes - Installation Review from Swedesboro, New Jersey

3.6
Details
I purchased carpet/runner for my new home and it was to be installed in two separate visits. The carpet was installed without issue however the runner installation has become a DISASTER. The 3rd party installers called my husband to schedule installation for Thurs June 11 from 2-5pm. By 3 pm no one had arrived and my husband called the installers and they were closed. At 5 pm my husband called Lowes and was told he would be called back. When he was called back he was told they were an hour late (would be there at 6pm). No one called to tell us this before and we had to pick up our kids from school so could not wait for the installers. My husband is in sales so if he is not working he is not making money and he took off 3 hours to sit and wait as schedules for the installers who never called to say they were late. I came home early from work (and also had to lose money for leaving early to deal with this and get my kids), and spent 45 minutes trying to speak to someone at Lowes to find out what was going on. I was disconnected 3x before I spoke to a person. When I finally spoke to someone I was told that the installers were now running even later and could be there 6:45. I was asked what solution was acceptable and I told them that I was not willing to have my husband wait another 3 hours for installers and that I would need someone to come back with a tighter window and I would want compensation for my time wasted. I was told that someone from the install co. would call me the very next day at 8am (the owner) to reschedule and to offer me compensation. The next day (today) as promised, the owner called me and tried to reschedule for today (Fri), barely apologized for the fact that his installers were running 3 hours late and tried to tell me that they did call to say they were late. Which is a LIE. Neither my husband or I heard from anyone about anything and would not have known they were even late if we hadn't called ourselves. And then of course, he did not offer compensation. I called Lowes immediately and spoke to an assistant Mgr who attempted to resolve this and I then received more calls from install trying to schedule today which I declined and still no offer from anyone for compensation. I then received another call from a different Lowes asst mgr to tell me the best they can do is offer a measly $100 cash payout for my time. My runner was $800!. End result I cancelled the runner. This is too much frustration and too much time wasted. I don't want that lying install co back in my house after the rude treatment I received, nor do I want to do business with Lowes flooring any longer. The time my husband and I wasted dealing with this nonsense yesterday and today is worth more than $100... LOWE'S... SHAME ON YOU!

My wife and I just paid lowes 10000 dollars to have siding and gutters installed well the contractor said when they would start so my wife stayed home from work well they never showed two days in a row. Called and called. Well finally get them there and they ran out of special order siding. They ordered it it came in 2 weeks later and I contacted the contractor and he promised a certain day so my wife stayed home again and she waited and waited no show again. The siding has been *** I could have done this bad for free. Needless to say I think lowes needs to redo this. They put nails through the wiring for my doorbell and my flood lights. I've got caulk smeared all over my grey siding. Bits pitiful still trying to resolve this.

You could have contacted your state's Business and Professional Regulations to check the contractor's history. This will tell you how many complaints, or out-of-compliance issues this contractor may have had lodged about him. Few people realize that checking a contractor on your state's website for BPR will give you a picture of how well, or badly, this contractor has done.

Okay so them not calling you and leaving you hang several times is very unprofessional. On the other hands Lowe's installations are based on %100 satisfaction Guaranteed , so if the workmanship was not to your liking they usually accomadate to a reasonable extent.

I'd threaten to sue get twenty grand from a judge for bad work you don't use nails on the sideing they just allowed water ice whatever behind that siding. I can't believe that corner area my girlfriends five year old could have done a better job I know I will never hire them they sub contract iddiots with no school in the trade. And on top of that if your not right there under him watching they cut corners literly should sue call lawyer get them scared they will redo all the work over

Lowes in Zephyrhills, Florida - Lousy scheduling and poor communication

3.3
Details
I ordered a $2000 gas stove from Lowe's. When it arrived, they called to schedule installation. A day prior to the scheduled date, a driver called to deliver the stove which I stored in the garage. On the scheduled date, the installer arrived and told me that there was no conversion kit so he could not do the installation. I had the stove returned to the store and the driver who came to pick it up borrowed our dolly to move the stove because he did not have one. Unable to find the stove at any other store, I returned to Lowe's and found my stove on the showroom floor. I purchased it and was told the charge included delivery, installation, and haul off of my old stove, as well as a conversion kit. A date/time range was scheduled and, true to form, the drive shows up 8 hours before time. I again accepted the stove and called the store to confirm the installation time and was told that no installation was scheduled. I later discovered that there is no conversion kit, as promised. I've been told that I have to return to the store to sign a contract for installation before it can be scheduled. I'm between a rock and a hard place. This is the only model of stove that I want and the only supplier. I don't understand why they cannot clearly communicate that the delivery is separate from the installation and provide accurate times for both. I'll not purchase any other appliances from Lowe's.

Lowes in Stony Brook, New York - Install for storm door nightmare.

Stony brook Store. They do not call you back, they are not interested in the issue, it's a joke. I have spoken to managers, corporate office. No difference, they hire contractors who sub work out and when you have an issue they tell you, it's not covered to fix it correct but to give a temporary fix they will do. Makes no sense. I am closing my card not shopping there again. So glad I had them install the storm doors I bought not to have any drama. Now I have a storm door that ripped the door frame to my exterior door. Their repair would be to put longer screws into the broken frame. Had the door been secured properly this would not have happened however when the installer is a sub from the sub contractor and is being paid $75.- for the day they are in a rush to leave and really don't care if it's installed correct. One would thing a large corporation would have a screening process on who they hire. Apparently, anyone can be a contractor for Lowes.

Lowes in Raleigh, North Carolina - Kitchen sink disposal installation error in kitchen remodeling project

5.0
Details
Plumbers claimed that disposal could only be installed under small sink which is not the sink we use for the preparation of food nor for clean-up. It would have been a more difficult installation under the larger sink, but we were not advised as to the feasibility of this. As it has turned out another plumber has advised us that there was also a code violation in your installation. I have contacted your "troubleshooters" who have all promised to help, but as of this date (4 months later), they continue to give me the run-around. I have been promised your attention to this matter, but it ends there, and each person I have dealt with leave me with the excuse that they will be "out of the office" for extended periods of time. We used Lowe's for our kitchen remodel, never realizing that our faith in your store was totally misplaced. Where do I turn from here?

Lowes Installation Review

I have shopped in the north augusta SC store for years. I purchased a storm door for lowes to install and its be two weeks after purchase and know one has contacted me to schedule installation. I've called the store three times today and get the same *** answer. Lowes should be ashamed at how there loyal consumers are being treated. In short I'm pissed and dissatisfied.

Lowes in Port Saint Lucie, Florida - Purchase of Laminate Flooring Turns into Nightmarish Experience

Lowes - Purchase of Laminate Flooring Turns into Nightmarish Experience
Lowes - Purchase of Laminate Flooring Turns into Nightmarish Experience
Mid February decided to purchase laminate flooring material through Lowe's. Called flooring dept at my local Lowe's and arranged to have room measured. Took 2 weeks - end of Feb before guy shows up to measure. Meanwhile I'd looked online at patterns, saw one I liked, called store and was told pattern not in store so I would have to order it. OK. When sample arrived, it looked nothing at all like Pergo picture so took it to store to have them call Pergo and have them send one that looked more like picture. Flooring guy says to me, "wait, let me check samples we have in store to see if we can find something better" (HUH? - thought you said you don't have that pattern in store!) Guy comes back and says no, something is wrong, all our samples look like one Pergo sent you. By this time a month has elapsed and I still don't have my flooring so I selected a different pattern at the store. Guy says he's ordered it (I'm there 3 hours waiting for him to complete transaction!) and flooring will be in by March 20th and installed following week (March 23rd). March 23rd, no word from Lowes regarding delivery, install, anything at all, so I call store and am told my flooring has been there since March 17th and they have no idea why it hasn't been delivered. It is finally delivered March 26th (stacked in 7 - 4' high piles right inside my front door). I tell the guy I don't think that's a good place to leave it but he says he's only authorized to deliver to inside my door. Meanwhile I call the installation guy to verify installation is scheduled for March 29th. Installer questions me about humidity and temperature conditions in room where laminate is to be installed then tells me he won't install that product because it isn't suitable for temperature/humidity conditions in my home, and recommends instead that I purchase ceramic tile. So both install guy and I make separate calls to Lowes telling them they need to come and get the laminate flooring that day. As luck would have it, my doorbell rang and when I went to answer the door, two of the 4' high piles fell over hitting me in the leg and resulting in a hematoma the size of a melon and excruciating pain. I immediately called the store manager (Mark) to report what had happened, and he told me to seek medical treatment and that he would be sure to have everything picked up the following day (27th). Didn't happen and everything is still stacked inside my door, and to make matters worse (if possible!) install crew shows up early this morning because no one at Lowes had remembered to inform them job was cancelled. Crew calls their boss and he confirms that job was cancelled and he will call "Mark" to find out why stuff is still at my home and why his crew wasn't told about cancellation. I've also called "Mark" 4 times today to find out why this hasn't been picked up as promised, calls have not been returned. Time is now 4:00 pm and stuff is still here blocking my entryway and still on my Lowe's credit card (almost $3,000). Seems fairly obvious, if you do business with Lowe's be prepared to experience delays, misinformation and all in all extremely substandard poor service (perfect example of adage: Left hand doesn't know what right hand is doing)...

Next time go to a small, family owned business who cares about their customers.

Deal with a big box store, get big box store service.

You are another number, not a name.

Lowes in Cape Coral, Florida - Samsung Dishwasher

2.0
Details
. I have had issues with the dishwasher from the date of installation. I was not informed when I purchased the dishwasher that it did not have an element to dry the dishwasher. It has a fan that air dries the dishwasher. Your hot water must be turned up all the way to create enough steam to dry the dishes and then when it cycles to leave the door open. This does not seem energy efficient to me. I had a service call prior to the warranty ending due to not cycling, nor the soap dispenser not opening and the repairman was able to fix the dishwasher under warranty. Now the dishwasher is doing the same thing. I called Samsung first and they informed me that they showed no service on the dishwasher and there was nothing that they could do to help me. I was extremely frustrated because I spent $697 on the dishwasher. I went into the Lowes store and the gentleman told me to call the Lowes Customer Service. I was informed by a Representative that I would have to pay for parts and service for a dishwasher that has not worked for 2 months. I am extremely disappointed that Lowes does not stand behind the products that they sell and service.

It is not their responsibility to teach you how to use any product you buy. It is yours.

how hard is it to do some research before you make an appliance purchase? IF you would have done any research at all, you could have known about these issues and purchased another dishwasher!

It is NOT the responsibility of a retail store to stand behind the product. It IS the responsibility of the manufacturer to stand behind their product and warranty. You should be complaining about Samsung rather than Lowes.
