To be honest, I think you’re better off having a fire in the shed than having a fire in the house! The damage could have been catastrophic.
Your claim is under the Consumer Rights Act in respect of the faulty goods themselves and under the Consumer Protection Act with regard to the ongoing damage.
However, you can’t beat them with a stick until they capitulate and pay up your only remedy is to take them to court. You will normally find they change their tune when the legal proceedings land on the doormat.
To be honest, I wouldn’t have put this through my own insurer, because it’s not my fault, I would have claimed the whole lot from them. You know for future.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
