Long story short - We had a home renovation completed. We ended up suing the general contractor and he in turn sued the heating contractors. So the heating company is part of our Court case. We found out they only hold gas fitter license and not air conditioning or sheet metal license, but completed those aspects of the design. What can they be held liable for? What can the General Contactor be held liable for since it was their contact?
All the work behind your walls / ceilings
MUST be inspected by your local city building inspector ( where you took out the permit ) If this work does not meet code as per the design/drawings , the installer is
obligated to make the required changes to meet code and the job cannot go forward and
drywall/ceiling tile cannot go in place until
this passes inspection.
The most important part in this issue is the safety. First you have to make sure that everything is done to code and safe. As far as for the liability issue, the general contractor is the one who would liable because your signed contract was with him however he will also able to sue his sub-contractor as that one will take the responsibility based on their own contract together. Actually and based on my experience, the court will not help much and the process is long and costly
