RevWood Flooring Product Review
About Mohawk RevWood
In 2018, Mohawk Industries introduced, RevWood. This product was portrayed as a "revolutionary" wood flooring product. This can be witnessed in the product name: "Rev" wood.
Several years have passed since the product launch, and RevWood continues to be a very hot selling product for Mohawk Industries. In fact, according to one of the Mohawk Sales Representatives (that we spoke with), at the date of this article, RevWood is selling so well, Mohawk is having a hard time keeping up with their product demand.
The product itself includes a laminate decorative layer, which is then bonded to an engineered core. RevWood is made to resist dents, scratching, and staining.
Back in 2017, according to Floor Covering News, Mohawk Industries conducted a customer research study to determine what their customers thought about vinyl, wood, and laminate products. The goal was to learn more about the customer buying experience and to develop a product that might solve customer issues.
“We learned from consumers that their shopping experience can be very complex and frustrating. Our main goal is to make shopping for flooring very easy and simple to understand, and that’s precisely what we’re doing with the launch of RevWood and RevWood Plus.” - Floor Covering News
Currently, RevWood has three unique products in the marketplace: RevWood, RevWood Select, and RevWood plus. Each product comes with different benefits. Mohawk Industries promotes RevWood as a product with unmatched hardwood realism, and incredible durability that resists stains, scratching, and dents. Mohawk claims RevWood to be a waterproof product, that also comes with a pet protection warranty program.
The base grade product in the product line. RevWood comes with a protective wear layer that resists product scratching and denting. It also comes with the Uniclic locking system, which helps prevent moisture issues. No glue, no fumes, no mess.
The first step up in the product line, Revwood Select carries all of the features as RevWood, plus many more additional benefits. RevWood Select comes with the Mohawk Waterproof Flooring System and the Mohawk Pet Plus Protection.

As with all floor covering product warranties (for any product), you can't read the back of a sample to see what is covered in the product warranty, or what is not covered. In order to find out what is really covered, a customer needs to print the full product warranty from the company's website. Only by reading the warranty brochure will a customer know for sure how the warranty works.
With RevWood, Mohawk Industries actually has three different warranties, one for each product.
The biggest difference in the warranties is in the waterproof warranty. RevWood has no waterproof warranty, Select comes with a 10-year waterproof warranty, and Plus comes with a lifetime waterproof warranty.
RevWood Waterproof System - What Does it Mean?
The RevWood Select and Plus Products are both backed with the Mohawk Waterproof Protection system. Interestingly enough, after a review of the product warranties, the term "waterproof flooring system" we find to be somewhat vague. Here is exactly what the Mohawk RevWood Plus Warranty says:
The RevWood Plus flooring system will resist moisture damage under normal use and may be maintained or sanitized with residential steam mops for the life of the product. - Mohawk
What is the definition of "normal use?" We are not sure. If you read further down in the warranty, it states the following:
This warranty does not apply to product that has been put to abnormal use or conditions or abused in anyway, which includes but is not limited to moisture damage from plumbing, storm, or flood. - Mohawk
We contacted Mohawk Customer Service to seek out further information on the waterproof warranty, and no further information was available. The warranty brochure continues on to state:
The Water Resistant and Waterproof Flooring System warranties do not apply to damage caused by events beyond everyday household spills, including but not limited to flooding, standing water, leaking pipes, mechanical failures or appliance leaks - Mohawk
While we believe Mohawk does stand behind its products, and this product warranty is a solid and good one, we do question some of the wording. It clearly states that anything above and beyond a normal household spill will not be covered under warranty.
This is why it is so important to not go by what is printed on a product display or sample, and only follow what information is written in the full product warranty. Many customers would believe the term "lifetime waterproof system" to mean much more than it really does.
