Exclamation Shaw Flooring

WARNING: I do NOT recommend Shaw Industries flooring for your motorhome. We just had their "Osage Hill" LVT planks installed, and are already experiencing some separation. My online research tells me that they have had numerous problems in the past. (Purchased from Carpet One)

Calmly work with your vendor.

If Diy install be certian all instructions followed to letter.

If a pro make sure they ate properly licensed to do the work.

Also follow up with manufacturer to make sure dealer sold you correct product.

Years ago we got some stain from home depot for an outbuilding at 20 something a gallon and it performed like crap.

Discussion with manufacturer showed sales folks sold wrong product so coupons were sent by manufacturer for the 35 dollar a gallon stuff as well as all all of the prep stuff.

The material manufacturer should back up their product and it may be the product is not suitable for a motor home.

Be calm and see where it goes.

hi guys,i am quite familiar with shaw lvt planks and they are a pretty good product,i have owned a flooring store for 24 years and no problems at all if the right glue is used,in rv applications the plank needs to be installed into wet adhesive,do not let it flash off like a house hold installation, sounds like your floor flashed, not the end of the world,just pick it up and put more glue under it,this should fix the shrinking problems. easy fix, TOM
