Kitchen Install Gone Wrong

Postby peter44904 » Sun Jul 28, 2019 11:06 am

I've recently had a new kitchen install which was done by one of the big nationwide companies.

When I’ve checked the installers work I’ve found that there are gaps at the back on the working surfaces which have not been filled or sealed, some of the side panels to on the kitchen cupboards have been filled with filler at the bottom.

When Curry’s tried to install my dishwasher yesterday they advised that the kitchen unit wasn't straight and it couldn't be fitted.

They haven't left a big enough gap for the fridge so it sometime difficult to open and they have left the drain pipe for the sink sticking out and it’s not attached to the wall.

I wanted to check and ask when you fit a kitchen working surface is it normal practice to leave gaps at the back and not seal them.

The area manager is inspecting his work next week so i'm hoping that they will resolved, but I just wanted to get any advice I can before then from people who know about installing kitchens.
