We had flooring installed in both of our bathrooms and laundry room from Home Depot in November 2013. In December 2013 the flooring began to lift along seams. We contacted Home Depot and they sent out a contractor to fix it. In January 2014 it began to lift again. At that point the manufacturer marked it as defective and offered to credit us for new floor. Only problem is we would have to do all the prep AGAIN and hire another plumber to remove and reinstall two toilets and a water heater. We have been fighting with them about this since and they still say that they will not pay for the prep and plumber. I just want the floor fixed without having to do any more prep work ourselves and pay another plumber. Do we have a case?
It is hard to know for sure based on what you posted, but it seems likely that you do have a claim against Home Depot. It probably depends, however, on the terms of whatever contract document you might have signed with them when they did the initial installation. Be aware that if the amount is under $5000, you will need to file a small claims action. Good luck.
