Mohawk Industries is an American flooring manufacturer based in Georgia. It is one of the largest flooring companies in North America.

One of the top reasons for choosing Mohawk flooring is the wide selection of colors and styles available. From light to dark, classic to trendy, and everything in between.

Mohawk Industries began in the 1870s as a carpet manufacturer and has experienced remarkable growth. Read our Mohawk carpet review. Today, Mohawk is an umbrella corporation for many brands, some of which Mohawk developed and others it has bought over the last quarter century. As well as their own laminate brands they also own the Pergo and Quick-Step laminate brands.

The company is publicly owned and has 40,000+ employees. Mohawk brands are sold by 25,000 retailers worldwide.

In addition to laminate, Mohawk produces solid wood, engineered wood, laminate, vinyl, and ceramic tile flooring. Mohawk laminate flooring products are all manufactured in the United States.


Mohawk offers a vast array of choices throughout their three collections of laminate flooring – RevWood Premier, RevWood Plus, and RevWood Select.

RevWood Premier

The RevWood Premier collection is the top of the line collection, that has all the best features.  It is the smallest of the three, currently offering four styles, each of which come in between four and six colors.

Even though it is the smallest collection, there’s still enough choice and features to suit most homes.

We particularly like the beautifully detailed grain pattern in the Ivey Gates style, which comes in key tones such as the greige Polished Grey Oak option, the caramel toned Sailor’s Rope Oak, and the classic mid-brown Natural Bark Oak.

Features of RevWood Premier include:

  • 8.35 inch wide planks
  • improved scratch resistance
  • WetProtect technology
  • wet & steam mopping safe
  • lifetime All Pet Warranty
  • most realistic texture
  • CleanProtect antimicrobacterial finish
  • GenuEdge locking system for floating floor installation

RevWood Plus

RevWood Plus is Mohawk’s largest line laminate flooring collection and nicely mimics the look of real hardwood.There are currently 10 different design styles to choose from, and a total of 47 colors.

Colors range from the toffee brown of Smooth Amber Oak in the Sterlington design, to the creamy gray of Urban Mist Maple in the Hartwick design. All of the lines are embossed in register and many feature the hand scraped texture.

Like the RevWood Premier collection, RevWood Plus is waterproof due to Mohawk’s WetProtect technology that comes with a lifetime surface and subfloor warranty.

Other features of the RevWood Plus collection are:

  • different widths, depending on design from 5.24″ to 9.45″ wide
  • improved scratch resistance
  • WetProtect technology
  • wet & steam mopping safe
  • realistic texture
  • GenuEdge locking system for floating floor installation

The RevWood Plus Collection is a good choice for anywhere in the home including bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and basements.

The RevWood Select Collection

The RevWood Select collection is Mohawk’s standard laminate flooring collection, with five designs each with its own color options.

The colors range from the almost white of Bone Hickory in the Fulford design, to the perfect gray of Ashlar Oak in the Rare Vintage design, to the weathered dark wood of Boathouse Brown in the Boardwalk Collective design.

Both the RevWood Plus and RevWood Select collections are ideal for areas with general traffic such as bedrooms, dens, living, and dining rooms.

  • 7.48 inch wide planks
  • milled edges
  • improved scratch resistance
  • 10 year waterproof protection
  • fairly realistic texture
  • Uniclic locking system for floating floor installation


Mohawk laminate flooring is produced with eco-friendly techniques, but it is not recyclable. The company uses sustainably grown southern yellow pine in its laminate flooring core.

Mohawk also uses pre-consumer recycled material, a move it estimates diverts thousands of tons of waste from landfills on the front end. Since laminate can’t be recycled, most ends up in landfills when removed.

Additionally, Mohawk laminates are FloorScore Certified. The FloorScore certification system was developed to test for volatile organic compounds emissions and to certify that the products meet healthy standards for indoor air quality.


The RevWood Collections costs are cheap compared to hardwood. Mohawk laminate floor is moderately priced or, mid-range, within the laminate flooring market.

Laminates typically cost between $1 and $5 per square foot with Mohawk generally in the $3 to $4 range.

Laminate floors are made in various thicknesses, usually between 5mm and 15mm. In general, the thicker the plank, the higher the cost.

RevWood planks are 10-12mm thick, depending on the collection and design. This gives them extra strength and stability

Technology can also affect the cost. Mohawk’s WetProtect waterproofing technology is available with the RevWood Plus and RevWood Premier collections.

The RevWood Select collection costs between $2.00 and $4.00 per square foot making it the most affordable.

RevWood Plus is in the middle, and costs between $3.00 and $5.00 per square foot.

RevWood Premier runs between $4.50 and $5.30 per square foot making this the most expensive, but most durable, collection.

These costs include the product only; there will be additional costs for installation and supplies.

Overall, Mohawk’s middle of the road pricing suggests a decent value for a decent product.

Mohawk uses a range of techniques that improve the flooring’s appearance and performance.


The RevWood premier collection features Mohawk’s Signature Texture technology where up to 64 layers of textured surface fish are used to create a real depth to the feel of the plank, and a precision in the recreation of the natural wood grain.


Mohawk’s GenuEdge technology “features the most realistic hardwood looks ever seen in laminate flooring,” according to Mohawk, but of course, that’s for you to decide as you compare its laminate to other brands you’re considering.

Mohawk developed its own process that wraps the photographic paper over the edges of the laminate plank creating the look of a true hardwood edge. GenuEdge is available in all three Mohawk laminate flooring collections.


Uniclic is a system in which laminate planks fit together without glue to form a floating floor.  This results in a tight fit with constant tension.

The fit is so tight that moisture is prevented from seeping below the surface and causing water damage to the flooring and subfloor beneath. This give you more time to remove spills before causing damage.

Uniclic is available for all of Mohawk’s laminate flooring collections. Another benefit is that the design makes installation easy and successful for DIY homeowners.


WetProtect is available in the RevWood Plus andPremier collections. The technology ensures that perimeter of each plank is coated with a waterproof finish.

The unique coating repels water, so planks resist swelling from moisture thus making RevWood Plus and Premier truly waterproof.
The clever water-tight interlocking Uniclic joint between planks, combined with Mohawk’s specifically designed waterproof quarter round to edge the flooring, further protects the subfloor.

All Pet Protection

This is Mohawk’s pet-friendly protection system. Mohawk says, “It covers all pets, all accidents, all the time, plus scratch protection.” As with all warranties, this promise will be null and void if you have not installed your RevWood flooring according to Mohawk’s installation instructions.


Laminate flooring pairs the beauty of natural wood with easy maintenance and will provide years of performance if you adhere to some basic guidelines.

Mohawk have integrated their EasyClean finish to all their laminate flooring, to provide stain, soil and spill protection. Nevertheless, we recommend you deal with spills as quickly as possible to avoid unexpected damage.

Here are some of Mohawk’s care recommendations:

Use a dust mop, soft bristle broom, or vacuum with suction only (do not use a beater bar) to remove dust and debris on a regular basis. Spray cleaning products onto a mop rather than directly onto the floor.

Use a cotton, terrycloth or microfiber mop. Avoid wet mop cleaning. Mohawk carries a line of cleaning products called FloorCare Essentials.

Carefully remove stubborn stains like paint, oil, tar, or markers with acetone based fingernail polish remover.  Use ice to harden and remove substances like wax or chewing gum.

Invest in high quality floor mats at entry ways and protective pads under heavy furniture legs. Also placing mats in high traffic areas, like in front of sinks and the stove, is an effective way to reduce wear.

Avoid wax, polish, detergents, shine enhancers, and varnish. Steam and power cleaners should also be avoided. You can wet mop the RevWood Plus and RevWood Premier collections since they are water resistant laminates.

RevWood Select should not be wet mopped as they are only water resistant.


The longevity of your Mohawk laminate floors depends on how carefully you maintain them. It’s worth spending some time browsing the Mohawk Warranty brochure before making the purchase.

Mohawk boasts a Lifetime Limited Warranty but the warranty actually provides 100% coverage for the first 6 years. Years 7-10 are prorated at 90%. Coverage drops by 10% per year for years 11-16, and further dropping by 5% per year until year 20, where it remains at 10%.

If you plan to make a warranty claim, Mohawk requires that you:

Care for the floor in accordance with Mohawk’s written maintenance instructions.

Keep the floors free of moisture and shaded from excessive direct sunlight.

Keep the original invoice from your retailer.

You will need to contact your place of purchase to begin the claim process.


Mohawk products are available at flooring centers across North America. We recommend browsing Mohawk laminate on the Mohawk website.

You’ll find detailed photos and information on all three of their RevWood collections, as well as warranty information, care guidelines and style tips.


The customer reviews are mostly positive for the RevWood Plus Collection but are mixed for RevWood and RevWood Select. With these collections, the biggest negative is that the floors can bubble or buckle if liquid is allowed to stand on them. There also are some issues with the Uniclic system being more difficult to install than suggested.

“I had RevWood Plus installed throughout our apartment 7 months ago. It looks amazing and it’s surprisingly very quiet. I use a damp mop about once a week, sweeping with a dry broom as needed, and the mopping hasn’t caused any problems.”

“My sister used cheap laminate in her home, not Mohawk, and the bubbles and warping from tiny spills is ridiculous. I went with RevWood Plus after her experience, and haven’t had any issues. It’s been down over a year and looks very good.

“Choosing the standard RevWood was a mistake since I have kids and an old dog with a weak bladder. I read reviews warning about water damage, and now I’m experiencing it firsthand. Go waterproof. I should have.”

“Two of us, decent DIYers, spent 11 hours installing 300 square feet of Mohawk RevWood Select with Uniclic. It took a while for us to get the hang of it, but went OK after an hour or so. A little tougher than expected.

Two boxes had boards with an edge that was clearly uneven. Wouldn’t fit together right. Took them back and exchanged it. I was told Mohawk occasionally has production issues milling the planks, so check for defects!”


RevWood flooring adds sophisticated wood style without breaking the bank and it’s easy to install and easy to clean. RevWood flooring is made to withstand real life, making it a perfect choice for an active household.
