9 months into build of our extension. Structural damage to my home, fault after fault, non compliance to building regs, failure to build to engineers drawings. Continually one step forward then two steps back. Can I get closure on the basis that its been 9 months and they seem either unwilling or unable to comply. Surely a contract isn't  one sided, they promised to supply/fit in 4-6 weeks back in October 2018.

Hi and Welcome to CAG

 

I think you may get a better response if you were to expand on exactly what the problems are in depth.

Thanks Andy.

 

The trades brought in eg builders and fitters have done a very poor standard of work for us. So many build errors noticed by ourselves that we brought in Building Control.  With every fault being rectified, another 2 are  3 are identified , which further sets us back. We began build end October 2018, and still waiting for completion.

 

Wall ties not fitted properly, where actually fitted, if at all. Steel beams not welded properly, or painted with bitumen, or lined with 15mm fireboard, all in the engineers drawings. Failure to prop properly when removal if brick pier and rebuilt, resulted in drop of ceiling above, bowing of interior wall, and 10ft horizontal crack on opposite wall.

 

My problem with debris,  nails , sandstone muck throughout the entire house, due to failure to use water with cutting or drilling tools, somehow now pales into significance .

 

Called in Building Control ourselves repeatedly to support our concerns which were wholly upheld. Paid for independent structural surveyor due to subsidence, caused by builders. Weeks go by, emails not replied to or acknowledged.  Engineers also wrote report on failings, buikders not sticking to drawings. I could despair.
