My first post, joined forum to get some help as my husband thinks everything is ok and i am harrasing. We Had warmap Ufh installed on Friday. It went on a bare concrete floor. Tiler used Tarmac floor levelling compound and did on the go as he poured compound. he never laid wires down, they are attached here and there with a tape that is sticking out. Distance between wires varies from 5mm to 15 cm and yes I can see them. 1554613382683-194610220.jpg Can this be salvaged and how? I attached pic sorry not the best quality.

Afraid not. Cables should be evenly spaced min 5omm. Should have put insulation board down.

One Day

the killer is that at 5mm spacing they will almost certainly burn out.

Contact Warmup and explain what has happened. Get it in writing and pass this on to the installer. Mention that you’d like the spec to follow warmups manufacturers instructions.

You can download them online if you don’t already have them

I'd be passing no information onto the installer, obviously hasn't the first idea what he's doing and should not be allowed back into your property to continue, only thing I'd be saying to him is come and collect your tools and goodbye..

You’ve got to give him the opportunity to rectify it. Legally.

I agree though- I’d not want him anywhere near my house again. You’re better off trying to keep things legal. Perhaps even suggesting he pay for a professional to rectify the issues.

When I say rectify I mean a full rip out and re fit :D

There is no rectifying that though...what could possibly be done to salvage it, if I were him I'd consider myself very lucky to be just walking away..

Yes he should be giving the opportunity to put this right but let him try and take this to court and see what happens.. Would take them five minutes to throw this out. By showing no reasonable skill care and attention (let alone knowledge) in undertaking the work I would presume the trader is already in breach of contract..

Did you read my post?
Was that necessary?
Happens continually where others don’t read previous posts correctly, or even at all.
Hands up who’s never done it!
Makes you look like you have an attitude.
And now it’s escalated further.
Not only is it off topic, it’s bloody childish.

Move on please, both of you!

Yes I’m guilty of not reading posts fully just as much as the next man.

That’s why I asked if he read it. There’s no malice in typing that and it doesn’t make me look like I have an attitude and no it isn’t childish. I was simply asking if he read my post because he replied to it with something that was irrelevant.

‘Did you read my post’

It’s neutral. Not with an attitude at all.

I apologise if I upset Andy. I apologise for derailing the thread.

The buzzer did go off though. ‘Waluigi posted’

Goodbye

@Waluigi you say you’re not being childish?
Well that last post isn’t helping your case.
Of course it appeared you had an attitude, it got an immediate aggressive response.
And immediately escalated.
And loose the chip on your shoulder, don’t flatter yourself, I certainly don’t spend my time waiting for your ‘buzzer to go off!’
I have better things to do.

As I said, let’s move on please.

Thank you all for your replies. Really appreciate. Most importantly you convinced my husband. Tiler will be back tomorrow at 9am and I have to sack him. Will pay for materials used and 2 hours labour that was the time all this mess was done. Going to buy another kit and redo. Already have insulation boards but tiler insisted they were sold to us to meet the sales and didnt bother to put down. Thank you all again. This is really helpful place no doubt will use it again

..and I don't think you could be any fairer than that, maybe worth contacting your tile supplier to ask if they have any recommended fitters or check the find a tiler section on here..good luck with your project.
