The first ventless fireplace that was installed required nearly $23,000.00 in clean up by ServiceMaster to clean walls, ceilings, replace insulation in crawl space. The dealer where I bought the unit from and installed it accepted blame and his insurance paid for clean up. He convinced us to take that on out and spend another approx. $1500.00 to install a straight burner with no logs. Looked great, but after a period of time we noticed soot again in all the familiar places. His service rep said the unit had a total yellow burn with none or very little blue a base of flame and was still set as it was from factory and this caused the excessive soot. Do you feel this again makes him liable, because he is resisting correcting the damage??

Gonna need an expert witness to make your claim. Your lawyer can secure the services of an expert witness.

I think very few inspectors would answer that question on a public forum. But who knows, maybe someone will offer their opinion here. Good luck.

Sue the bastards.

So you are suggesting that you installed a system that resulted in Litigation…
with a cleanup charge of $23,000 due to “Alleged” improper installation…
and you contracted with the Same Contractor…
for an additional “Alleged” improper installation…
and you are now looking to File Again…

HHhhhmmmmm…

Post the State Court Filing Numbers,
The State within the USA of the Alleged Action and
the Name and Address of your Attorney Filing such Action…

This Post is Absolutely Bogus…
