Lowes hidden (un)warranty
Lowes location: S. Durham Lowe's 4402 Fayetteville Rd Durham, NC 27713, Store #2778 In 2014 Lowes replaced the shingles on my roof. I immediately had problems with the install. 1. They were supposed to remove an old exhaust pipe on the side of the house. It is still there. 2. Shortly after that a ceiling light quit working. Lowes sent out an electrician and they found a wire had been crimped and shorted. I am still not sure how they fixed it. The light had 3 switches that controlled it. After the repair, only 1 switch would turn the light on or off. Lowes refused to fix, because the Lowes electrician said it was bad switches and I would have to fix them myself. I brought in a licensed electrician who found that some "travelers" (electrical term for wiring legs with 3-way switches) had been switched and that all the switches worked. Now after 2 years and 6 months, the roof has begun to leak. Lowes tells me their responsibility ended at 2 years and I would have to get a licensed roofer to determine the problem. If it turns out to be an installation problem, then Lowes MIGHT repair it. If it turns out to be material failure I would have to work with manufacturer. Either way, I will have to pay even more for what I believed to be a simple roofing job. They have good salesmen. They made me feel comfortable that they would stand behind their work. I am tremendously disappointed with their service and do not recommend them for any work done on homes.

Lowes in Raleigh, North Carolina - Poor customer service from manager!
I signed my business up for a commercial LAR account. I was told that I would get 5% off of all purchases and sometimes more depending on what promotions they have at the time. 3 days later I used this account to buy 80 dollars worth of stuff and everything went fine! then I go back that weekend to buy a water heater, trim, lumber, and a bunch of other stuff probably over 1000 dollars worth of stuff for working on a rental house. When I told them at the register that I had an LAR account she looked it up and asked for my card. I told her that I did not have the card yet as its a new account and it had not come in the mail yet. She sent me to the customer service desk to ask manager to push the discount through for me. The manager informed me that without my card I could not have the discount? I told the manager that I had just gotten the account and the card had not come in the mail yet and that the last time I was in the store they had no problem giving me the discount. The manager said he could not violate store policy and that I would have to pay full price. Now don't get me wrong 5% is not much, but its the principal of the matter that was bothering me. I told the manager that if I could not have the discount I would take my business to home depot. His exact words were "good, see ya". Please also keep in mind that I had not lost my temper, gotten angry, or said anything inappropriate to deserve this. All I had said was, I don't understand why I cant have a discount when I have an account that is showing up in your computer, they just have not mailed the card. Then out of frustration I did say I would take my business elsewhere in what I felt was a polite manor. Did that justify the managers response? I dont think so. So when I left the store I called Lowe's LAR customer service. Told them to cancel my account. The card came in the mail that following Monday so I ran it through the paper shredder! The funny thing is that I left all the stuff I had shopped for at the checkout counter where i'm sure some lowe's employee spent 45 min putting back on the shelf and drove to Home depot. The water heater and many other items I purchased were a little cheaper and I ended up saving 11% buy paying full price at home depot! This happened at the lowe's in Clayton NC cleavland crossings. highway 42 and interstate 40 intersection.

Lowes in Raleigh, North Carolina - I pray that I will never need another Lowe's credit card again
I went to paid my bill at Lowe's. My account with Lowe's was closed due to (2) late payments. I understand that's there policy, however last month I forget my statement so I couldn't pay my bill. This is what I don't understand my account was closed, but once I try to pay on the my account nothing showed up. I had a balance of $100.00, because I didn't have my receipt and couldn't pay the bill on my due date. I pay the bill the next and still go charge a $35.00 for being late fee. I made my last payment last month, they said never, said never but I pray I don't and do want a another credit card with this store.

Lowes in Raleigh, North Carolina - Kitchen sink disposal installation error in kitchen remodeling project
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 in Raleigh, North Carolina - Incompetent & Dishonest
These guys are terrible. First problem. I tried to add installation after I ordered a dishwasher. They told me they had to cancel the order to add the installation and reorder it, which I thought was ridiculous but whatever, and they would call me back when it was done. Never got a call back and called them to find out what was going on. Find out they cancelled it and never reordered it. As a result they no longer had inventory. So I find they have it in a nearby store and tell them I will order from there. The guy proceeds to tell me that they can get it shipped from the other store overnight and says there is no benefit of ordering it from them. I'm told i will get a call within 48 hours for installation. Second problem. I get no call back within 48 hrs for installation. I call and I am told I have to come in person to sign a contract for installation in order to setup a time. This is ridiculous. No one mentioned anything about this at all and to have to come into the store and sign something is absurd. I call lowes 1-800 and they talk to the store and find out I don't have to sign it at the store and can do it when they come for installation. Third problem. I found out they never got the dishwasher they said they would get overnighted to their store and that was 3 days ago. The dishwasher would not get there until the following week. Apparently I find out that it takes at least a few days in the best case scenario for them to transfer an item between stores. So apparently the guy just wanted to make a sale and was full of it. Avoid these people if you can.
Lowes Poor Carpet Install/Defective Mohawk Carpet
Purchased $5,000+ worth of Mohawk Cheyenne carpet from Lowes in Cary, NC. Watsons Flooring did the install for them - did poor job - bad seams and damage to walls/baseboard. Also turns out carpet contained factory defect - a large line running entire length of roll. So now every room in our new home has this terrible scar. Have spent last month trying to get this fixed but Lowes is dragging their feet and doesn't seem interested having a satisfied customer. So we will not be paying the Lowes credit card bill until it is fixed. We will also be taking legal action if it is not corrected in next week.
Lowes in Raleigh, North Carolina - Employee said he would smash my face in
Today I went to Lowes to get some moving supplies and paint samples. We are finally moving into a home and I can't wait to do lots of DIY projects! I am 26, a woman, and I have blonde hair. I came alone and wandered around for like 30 minutes, not once did anyone ask me if I needed help finding anything. I started looking for someone to help me. It seemed like at every turn I got dismissed from help or someone was faster to speak up, so there I was lost in the store. I picked up a black phone and called customer service, I asked the lady where the moving boxes were and she said "at the end of seasonal, on the way out the door.". Ok great, I finally had directions. Nope. Got lost again. Couldn't find it. Asked James for directions to the moving boxes and he said, "oh I'm trying to load up a lawnmower for a customer on the loading dock.". He didn't have time to point or go "that way" but he could tell me that. Lost again. I tried to catch a lady with red hair, she looked at me and turned a corner really fast as to dodge me. Then finally I got frustrated, went to the end of seasonal near the door and picked up another black phone to ask for help. It was behind a computer desk and not a single employee was in sight. I told the lady that was crazy that no one was at the computer that anyone could just walk up and do whatever they wanted and that's wasn't safe. She then said she would get someone. Thats went Victor showed up. First thing he says is "I wish she would touch the computer, I'd smash her face in." OMG WHAT! All I wanted was a point in the direction od the boxes and packing tape. I told him I didn't think that was very nice and it was rude and he said, "what it's the truth, ive said worst to customers." he did show me where the boxes were and I got the feeling he only said it because of my age. I couldn't believe he spoke like that to me and it didn't even phase him or bother him. I said "I bet you wouldn't talk to a man like that." and he said "yes I woul
Lowes in Raleigh, North Carolina - Lowe's Breach Of Contract
In Aug 07 I purchased a Whirlpool Washer from Lowe's with a $159 Extended Proctection Plan. The paint is peeling off. The Lowe's service technician and a customer representative from Lowe's Service Advantage both said it was misapplication by the manufacturer, which is covered under our contract (please reference Lowe's EPP contract). However, Lowe's is denying repair of the item, which seems to be their policy from talking with a few of their local employees. WARNING! DO NOT purchase an protection plan from Lowe's. You should purchase it directly from the manufacturer. I attempted to file a smail claim; however, the filing costs were going to be over $100.
Lowes broke my foot
I went into Lowes in LUMBERTON, NC on Jan. 10th. to buy a fan. While my wife was looking at them, I went to look at some lumber for a table. I noticed that the yellow belts were on the floor at both ends of the isle, (where they had been working and had the isle blocked off earlier) I put my hand on the eyelevel shelf for balance to look at a table top below. A giant pressed board 3 feet wide and 6 feet long crashed down on my right foot and broke it completely across. I told the manager and he filed a claim. Today, May 27th they called and offered me 350.00. That won't even pay for the shoes I have tried to wear. My foot will never be the same width again. I went through 3 months of pure ***, and it still hurts today. If you love shopping at Lowes, then by all means do it. But if they hurt you... YOU ARE SCREWED.
