Faulty Fittings

published on June 3, 2022 by admin

Property Claims Loss Assessors have recently been appointed to claims by homeowners in Ireland who had water damage caused to their homes due to faulty plumbing fittings. This water damage only came to light several years after installation of faulty Tectite fittingsas the O ring seals had deteriorated and caused leaks.
We successfully represented these homeowners with their claims, directly against the manufacturer. Samples of the fittings are removed and sent to the UK for testing and confirmation that they are indeed faulty.In all the claims we represented the manufacturer has admitted liability and in addition to replacing the faulty fittings, we are also claiming for full trace and access, the cost of all repairs to ceilings, floors, walls etc and the cost of temporary electric heaters and increased electrical bills. If you need to take unpaid time off work to deal with these issues or there is other major inconvenience, we can add for these issues too.Finally, you can also claim for your assessors’ fees in full.

If you believe that your home may have been plumbed with these fittings and have noticed a loss in pressure in your heating system and have any other concerns with water damage, then do not hesitate to contact Property Claims Loss Assessors who can advise you further.
We will look after the claim from start to finish and ensure that you receive the full settlement you are entitled to.

Knowing where water can go e.g., electrical boxes and conduits, behind skirting boards etc. and how to professionally dry everything is always a normal part of our assessment. In addition to water damage, we also cover damage from fire, storm, flood, subsidence, break-ins, etc. Our first survey is free, and we are a ‘no win no fee’ company.
