Hi Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Is there building work still on going within the property?
Thank you. It would hard to understand that the dust would be coming from brand new cabinets. The logical conclusion would be that it must be coming from the walls. The only way to verify this would be to have an independent expert verify who as actually caused the damage concerned. Do you know another builder that could potentially diagnose the issue? Once you can establish fault you can sue to either have the damage repaired or recover the loss you suffer from having it repaired yourself. Why have the builders surmised the dirt comes from the cabinets?
Hi Thank you. From your experience of the situation the problem is caused by the units. In that case is there a defect with the units? If so, then this would be covered by the warranty. If they wont honour the warranty you will have to consider suing them the Sale of Goods Act 1979 - that the goods are not fit for purpose. Could the defect be caused by installation?
Hi thank you. In the circumstance where both parties deny responsibility your only option is to see if you can get an independent carpenter to come and verify who is at fault. Once you have done this you can attribute blame and therefore start to bring a claim - if the attributable party won't compensate you. Kind regards AJ
