Do your Karndean floors look like this?
I'm going to be posting pictures shortly to let you know what "this" looks like. Some background first...I had originally posted here a few months ago looking for ideas to replace our Karndean floor with. Apparently I hit a nerve with those people loyal to Karndean / selling Karndean / installing Karndean. That truly isn't my intention.
While I've been searching for a possible replacement, I've come across numerous people with a similar complaint that I have over my Karndean floor. I've been encouraged to gather a group together with similar problems to try to make an impact before replacing. With the risk of hitting another nerve, I've heard enough complaints that I'm attempting to reach out to those of you who are also having problems. So, back to my original question - Are your Karndean floors covered with scuff marks? Have you tried everything to try to remove them? Have you had a home appraiser question that "THIS floor was recently installed?!" Is Karndean actually lowering your home value? Like me, have you bought and returned four pairs of slippers simply because they "mark the floor" and settled on wool socks? Do your children hear, "Stop!" every time a plastic bin or toy gets pushed over the floor? If you're floor is taking more time and causing more headaches than you signed up for, please contact me. Please understand, we have no lawsuits planned - this is for honest homeowners who have a valid complaint.
I think it may be best to contact me direcly instead of re-posting, just so that we don't turn this nice, friendly forum into a Karndean complaint center.
Out of respect for those selling Karndean, they do have many fine products, thus their solid reputation. However, there are some products that fall very short of what their name stands for. I welcome your feedback and ideas on how to fix this problem if you have come across it before. Yes, my retailer and installation team are doing their best to help me, and yes they are in communication with Karndean. Yes, Karndean is out of ideas, and their products have not worked. We have tried almost everything - except a suggestion by another customer to use mop-n-glow. Apparently, he had the same problem with Karndean and felt that helped manage the marks. We've stuck only with Karndean products thus far to maintain our warranty.
