Additional Notes

Complaint: We shopped for a long time looking for a strand woven bamboo floor. Most of the products were too yellow for our house features. Finally we found a product from Higuera hardwoods that looked like what we wanted - our local store ******* ********* in Eugene Oregon is a distributer for Higuera. We visited the store numerous times asking questions and took a large sample board home to make sure we liked the color. We were assured by the staff that the flooring looked like the sample and that it was not an old sample that had discolored. They told us that the pattern can vary but that the golden brown of the sample would be the color of the flooring we receive. However that was not the case. The bamboo flooring we received was yellow not brown and not what we wanted and definitely does not go with our other woodwork we just had installed; and this was after waiting 8 weeks for it to be delivered when we were told that it would be available in 2 weeks. The stair treads that the company supplied us match what our sample was but the flooring does not even match their stair treads.

Desired Settlement: The company has offered a $700 discount (off the $4500 price) if we keep the floor, which we do not want unless they can guarantee that the floor will change colors to match the stair treads and if not then they will pay for the removal and replacement with a different product. Or they have said that they would replace the product but it was not clear whether they would replace with the same yellowish floor or another product. we have asked for clarification but have not heard yet. We would like to get our money back and get a different product if they can't get us the correct color of wood

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2014/01/07) */ The customer is satisfied and is going to settle with the $700.00 check and they are keeping the treads Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 10, 2014/01/08) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) The company has worked with the distributor to refund the price of the uninstalled flooring to the contractor and issue a $700 credit for the treads that were already installed. We appreciate the good faith dealing with the company and would recommend others to purchase flooring from this company in the future. It is a good product but the color just didn't work with our existing woodwork.
