I have recently discovered that the HETAS registered stove

Customer Question

Hello - I have recently discovered that the HETAS registered stove installer I employed 2 years ago, installed the wrong size liner for my woodburning stove. I have had to prove this to HETAS and the installer - who presented three different arguments justifying his actions, one after the other, all of which I have proved wrong with expert advice. He also at the time of working for me, damaged a wall, which cost £300 to put right. He also has at last admitted, he didn't adapt the stove properly to the liner and has to carry out 2 lots of remedial work on it to make it pass safety standards. He also did not provide the required data plate for the liner, or guarantee...which I have repeatedly requested. He has now finally agreed to replace the liner, after 6 weeks nearly of wrangling and me spending days and nights learning Building regs and communicating with the stove manufacturers...Now - we do not want him back!! We have no faith in his competency -tho' legally I understand, he should be given to put things right....aaaaargh -never want to see him again -do not want to take on the risk. Can I take him to small claims to recover the money I spent on the liner and his labour installing it -over 1k? Is it justifiable, considering all his mistakes, procrastinations and false arguments? Many thanks indeed....
