“DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!”

Written on: 13/10/2014 by mkOgden363 (1 review written)

I am a single 65 year old women with no kids, no pets and don't wear shoes in the house. I installed the Cottage style Antique Oak wood floors 7 years ago (go south in winter so floors have had 3 years use). I followed Care of the floor based on the Kahrs website instructions. The finish just wore off throughout areas that didn't get daily traffic. Fading was horrific; completely different color and totally bleached out. (my house faces north). And of course the customer service people took 9… Read Full Review

“Wish I had bought Laminate”

Written on: 17/08/2014 by Wiltshire18 (1 review written)

We bought European Salzburg maple flooring which has been down 6 years. It is in a very poor state with lots of black marks and dents. I have been advised that the black marks are where the laquer has broken and the cleaning fluid has changed the colour of the wood. Despite paying £1300 I have discovered there is only 3.5mm of wood and if sanded down this will reduce further. I am very disappointed as the floor looks very poor and like marked laminate. If I had bought laminate I could… Read Full Review

“A great floor”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by jpWooten100 (1 review written)

I love Kahrs floors! 20 years ago, I had Kahrs Paris Boheme installed in my large family room, kitchen, and hallways. The next year I had it installed in the living and dining rooms. Yes, when I dropped things there were nicks. But the floor always looked beautiful and held up well. 5 years ago, my dishwasher broke and water damaged the area just in front, but it wasn't very noticeable. 3 months ago, the refrigerator broke, leaked, and part of the floor buckled. Insurance is covering… Read Full Review

I think Ash is much more resilient against water etc,so maybe a better choice. However had it been Oak ,you would have seen a different picture as Oak soaks up water and Kahrs do nothing to protect the edges of the boards.
As for the No Glue floors, if your floor is not completely flat,then that system is no good,i spoke with a floor fitter who used to deal with Kahrs and he fitted a floor where there was some squeaking from some of the boards and Kahrs suggested he glued the boars, so much for their New Technology !

“Kahrs Oak Hampshire review”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by IREZUMI (1 review written)

I purchased a "Kahrs" engineered wood floor on account of the sales pitch given, i.e.: The "Rolls Royce" of engineered floors {what an insult tot a prestigious British car !!!!!} I have the "Hampshire" Matt lacquered floor and i noticed the short ends of the boards were beginning to look darker {this floor is meant to have a seamless finish} and i contacted "Kahrs" regarding this and the UK and was told, oh,they always go darker on the short ends,"Alarm bells started to ring" The UK… Read Full Review

“Kahrs Oak flooring soaks up any moisture.”

Written on: 27/06/2014 by Alvarado1947 (1 review written)

Kahrs Oak flooring soaks up moisture on the End boards as the short ends of the boards are not a tight fit similar to the side lengths of the boards. Therefore any kind of cleaning when some moisture is needed will be absorbed into the boards {you can test this for yourself by wetting the tip of your finger with spittle etc and rub it over the end of the board/samp[le and hey presto, you will have a damp mark}. Kahrs are aware of this problem, however forget the 30 year guarantee as this does… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2014

i have just been going through exactly the same problem as you and Kahrs after-sales is appalling. Kahrs have suggested: Ammonia? Gas from Concrete sub-floor {which i don't have} or excessive cleaning may have caused my problem { a product with a 30 year guarantee? Excuse me Kahrs !!!!!}, which has only been cleaned with Kahrs cleaner {diluted as per instructions} via a mist spray and absorbed up immediately with a Microfibre oblong cleaning mop, yet Kahrs say i have done something wrong. Well if that is the case, it's down to their cleaning product.
The 30 year guarantee is a complete joke, don't be fooled by any salesman about these floors, please do your homework,i urge you to shop around.
They are insulting " Rolls Royce " to use sales pitch ,that they are the "Rolls Royce" of engineered floors.

“Kahrs - country matt oiled finish”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by Jones352 (1 review written)

Absolute rubbish. THe biggest regret I have with my new house are my floors. I even called Kahrs directly before deciding on these floors which are their country selection, oiled finish. After only 8 weeks they look like they are 30 years old in some parts. Dirt just gets into them can cant be removed with any regular cleaning product or mop. I called Karhs who were of little help - recommended their own cleaning products = make no difference. For a reputable brand these floors are so… Read Full Review

“10 Years and Still Great”

Written on: 14/04/2014 by AutumnAbbott (1 review written)

I have had Kahrs Brazilian Hardwood for 10 years. Installed it in a new house myself. 3000 sq ft and then another 600 sq ft 5 years later. Love the flooring, still looks like new and holds up well to traffic. We have parties of over 50 people 2 to 3 time per year and the floor has always held up. Had a few accidents, dropped scaffolding on the floor, and was able to repair with very little effort. Scratch resistant, cleans up nice with just water, Murphy's Oil Soap, and then apply a wood floor… Read Full Review

“Beautiful flooring”

Written on: 22/11/2013 by Nobbie (5 reviews written)

I find it hard to believe some of the reviews on here of Kahrs flooring as we have had their Merbau floors for over 10 years and they still look fantastic. The odd dents and scratches are perfectly normal and give it character as the wood layer is fairly thick and any wood floors will mark over time. My husband actually laid the floors and I think it still looks as great as the day it was put down. We like it so much we are going to out it in our new home when we move. If you don't want… Read Full Review

“Avoid the "distressed" look, its just ugly dents”

Written on: 07/11/2012

I ordered Kahrs Oak Grasse engineered floorboards, on the basis that they are a respectable brand and worth paying for quality. I had professional floor layers to put the floor in, and so I cleared out of the way to let them get to work. Once I returned, half the floor was laid and there were major, obvious scratches and dents. My first impression was that some very heavy furniture had been dragged/ scraped across the floor, putting loads of rounded deep gouges in the floor. Also there were… Read Full Review

Forgot to mention that I also spoke to the manufacturers rep. His response was tough luck, if you dont like it just buy more packets and discard the distressed ones. Not too helpful.

If there was ANY representation on the website or brochure among the many photos as to what the effect was like, I would not have a problem with it. We also got sent a sample beforehand and it was completely unmarked.

The product seems misrepresented to me.

I am completely and totally disappointed with my Kahrs engineered flooring. I've purchased enough for a 20 x 28 room plus a kitchen. The kitchen is finished and is full of dents. I'm 73 and live alone. Very little traffic walks on my kitchen. I'm trying to sell the rest so I can put something else in the new addition. It is a beautiful floor, but I wouldn't put it in a doghouse. What a waste of my money.

I purchased from the Kraus the above flooring, installed it and it looks great. I chose to use it this flooring as it was made in Sweden of hardwood glued to plywood. When I received the flooring its construction had been changed from hardwood glued to plywood to hardwood glued to man-made manufactured HDF core interlocking, manufactured in the U.S.A. Name changed to Brazilian Cherry QUITO. What's happening now is the expansion rates are different between the two materials and is under constant… Read Full Review

“Damages very easily”

Written on: 04/06/2011

Had Kahrs Milano for just over a week and, boy, does it damage easily. I regret my purchase already especially given the expense of the product. I would caution against buying Kahrs engineered flooring unless you select a style which will wear the scratches and dents. Otherwise don't have guests or children and don't drop anything ever ;-) Overall very disappointing. The other optionb I guess is not to let the normal use damage bother you… Read Full Review

Is your engineered flooring by Kahrs hardwood glued to plywood or hardwood glued to composite board like I have. In my case the composite is the problem in my opinion.

Beautiful floor and that is what gets us. It dents so badly I will use it in my new addition as a subfloor and eventually cover it with something else. I have it in my remodeled kitchen and living by myself, it gets no traffic except for me. It is terrible and I'm so upset. Company refuses to admit the product is no good.

Retty's Comment

Written on: 09/11/2013

It is disappointing and I think the product is poorly designed in terms of hardiness.

I would say however that learning to accept the fragility of the product might be a good way forward.

There's a psychological process involved in accepting that the flooring can wear dents, scratches and bumps. The problem is that it doesn't wear them at all well and it really does damage too easily. But accepting the worn look can still be the best way forward.

That said I would strongly avoid potential buyers to avoid Kahrs engineered wood flooring. I would not by it again.

Kahrs is great flooring, i cannot find fault with it, apart from being much more expensive that some other brands.....but the warranty was good and The Wood Flooring Shop had the best price we could find in london.

p.s
We bought it from TheWoodFlooringShop.com, we visited their store in West London and then order it over the phone a few days later...nice guys to deal with

Is your hardwood glued to plywood or to man made hard board like mine? I bel. if mine was glued to plywood I would be most staisfied and not have the annoying clicking/ticking noise I have after the floor rests for some time. Again I think it's the tight joint and two different materials used to make the board..Expand at different rates. Pls reply

Written on: 17/07/2006 by sgnb (1 review written)

Kahrs wood flooring is probably the worst £1200 we have ever spent on home improvement. Although we bought it online, John Lewis sell it, so we thought it must be quality. Wrong.

This floor has visibly worn from the day it was put down. It is 20 months old and we are considering binning it. It scratches if you even breathe on it, which makes a joke of Kahrs claim for it's supposedly durable lacquer. Unless you ban young children from going anywhere near it, it will quickly acquire dents and… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2013

I have Khars Oiled wood flooring and i have very heavy Duresta furniture sitting on it. I moved the Sofa once when cleaning and the Brass Castor slipped out of the wheel cup [which has a felted bottom to protect the floor} and it rolled onto the floor. To my amazement there was hardly a mark on the floor and the little scuff came out with the rub of a duster , leaving no mark. When i bought the flooring i was told the Pro's and Con's of a lacquered finish and chose to go with oil and it has certainly paid off. I recommend to stay away from Lacquer finish and go with oil finish and it look so natural and is tactile to touch .
