Mohawk Factory Outlet has compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions to assist you with understanding the order process and what to expect when you place your flooring or accessories order.
How do I check availability of a discontinued Pergo, Mohawk, Quick-Step or other Mohawk-made floor not currently sold on the website?
First check the Depleted Products List to see if your discontinued flooring has already been confirmed to be permanently out-of-stock. As a general rule: if your flooring is more than 2-3 years old, we will no longer have any inventory. Otherwise, please use the form on the Contact Us page to send an inquiry. Please include your flooring color name and model number if you have it.
What is your Return / Exchange policy?
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Mohawk Factory Outlet (MFO) operates on an online-only, low-cost, low-overhead model in order to provide our consumers with the best possible flooring product at the best possible discount. Orders are fulfilled as a special exception out of corporate warehouses that are set up primarily to ship bulk-only to flooring retailers. Because of this, unfortunately we do not have the infrastructure to accept/process returns on products and therefore all sales are final. However, we stand behind our floor products and encourage you to contact us if quality issues arise. Regarding shipping damage: you should inspect the flooring, moldings, trim and all accessories at the time of delivery. If the products exhibit damage you should refuse delivery and photograph the damage if possible. Once you sign for a delivery you have accepted the product's delivery condition. UPS small parcel deliveries do not require signature and will be left at your doorstep. Hidden damage should be communicated to the MFO as quickly as possible so we can assist you. **If you are unable to reject the damaged shipment or receive damaged packages and/or product, please do not dispose of anything before contacting us. We will need photos of the packaging or damaged material to make a claim.**
How can I find matching moldings, trim, and accessories for recently purchased flooring from Home Depot, Lowes, or another retail flooring dealer?
Outlet staff are unable to assist with matching trim & accessories for currently marketed flooring purchased at Lowes, Home Depot, or other retailers. In this case please consult your retailer's specific product web page for recommended items (usually down the page under "Complete Your Flooring Project", "Coordinating Items", etc.).
How long will it take to get my order?
We ask that you allow 7-15 business days for your order to arrive to you. Please allow 3-5 business days (three for accessories, five for flooring) to process your order before you email/call. Keep in mind that until we have confirmed tracking on your order, the status will remain in an "Awaiting Shipment." Once it has tracking information, your status will change to "Shipped." Once it leaves our warehouse and is passed on to the carrier (further outlined below), the timing shifts to them.
I purchased _________ X years ago and cannot find it at my local home improvement store, do you have any in stock?
If you have already searched our depleted products list (for flooring itself) and our site for the flooring or molding you are seeking and were unable to find it, then it has been discontinued and the inventory has been depleted. Our best suggestion is to take a scrap or spare plank of your flooring to your local home improvement store and try to find a match there.
Can you match my current flooring with your inventory or something close if I send pictures?
Mohawk Factory Outlet does not have a physical presence and exists 100% online only. There are not any product physically available to compare styles. However, we can try to advise a similar flooring style recommended by our corporate product managers but will need the confirmed product name or model number of your existing floor to work with.
Why am I being charged sales tax?
All sales tax is charged based on the tax of the state the flooring is shipped to. There are no exceptions to this.
I live in Canada/Hawaii/Alaska. Can you ship to me?
No, currently Mohawk Factory Outlet only ships to the continental US.
How can I figure out the amount of flooring cartons I need for my project?
The number of cartons you need is based on the total square footage of the room(s) you are planning to redo. To figure out square footage 1) Measure each room. (e.g. 10’x10’) 2) Multiply the length of each room (in feet) times the width of each room. This gives you the square footage of that room. (e.g. 10x10=100) Repeat for additional rooms. For complex rooms define it in rectangles for measurement and add together as if they were individual rooms. 3) Add all of the rooms together. 4) Under each flooring décor on our website, there is a figure for the total square footage per carton (this can vary from item to item). (ranging from 12 to 26 sf) 5) Divide your total square footage into the sq. ft. per carton value. (e.g. 100/17.64=5.668) 6) To calculate the number of cartons and account for cuts waste multiply by 1.1 or 110% (e.g. 5.668*1.1=6.234) 7) Round that up to the next whole number for the # of cartons needed to purchase. (e.g. 6.234=7) 8) You are purchasing discontinued flooring so insure yourself some residual attic stock adding an additional few cartons for a possible future repair!
What is a transition molding and where would I need it?
Transitions connect two types of flooring (e.g. carpet/laminate) or bridge the same floor on either side of a doorway. Our transitions are approximately 78 3/4" in length enough for 2, 36" doorways. Our 4 n 1 transitions can be used as: 1) A t-molding between two raised surfaces of near identical height 2) A laminate to carpet transition (or carpet reducer) 3) A laminate to solid surface transition 4) an end molding at a fireplace hearth or sliding door.
What happens when I place my order?
Mohawk Factory Outlet primary warehouses are located in Garner, NC and Thomasville, NC near our production facilities with additional shippable warehouses in Calhoun, GA, Dalton, GA and Fontana, CA. Once placed your order is processed, picked and packed and shipped by the carrier for your orders size and location. If shipping more than 4 cartons of floor we use a common freight carrier (LTL), you should receive a call from the carrier when your order is in your area. They will coordinate a time for you to be available at home to receive the order. All residential deliveries are set up for lift-gate services to your curb. WE DO NOT PROVIDE inside delivery or any other special services. These services can be coordinated by yourself prior to delivery and any fees paid directly to the carrier. UPS small parcel deliveries do not require signature and will be left at your doorstep. We are sorry but we cannot accommodate overnight shipping requests.
What happens if my flooring or molding order is damaged?
Mohawk Factory Outlet relies on third party logistics providers to ship your floor order to you. Cartons can get damaged in transit though precautions are taken to minimize that occurrence. We request you be present to receive your order. Do not sign anything until you have thoroughly checked your shipment. If any of the cartons are damaged you may do one of the following: 1) Contact the Mohawk Factory Outlet to describe the issue. 2) If more is available we will ask you keep the damaged delivery and replacement can be shipped at our cost. 3) Refuse the entire order and contact us for your credit request. This allows us to coordinate with the carrier and we can correct and redirect or return without your involvement other than receiving proper credit promptly. It is your responsibility to contact us and we will provide you with your options. If no replacements are available, you will be able to decide if you want to reject the entire order or take partial delivery and a return credit for the damaged cartons.
