Hi we have an 18 year old detached house. During the recents storms the render came off one side of the chimney and hit some tiles off the roof.
The insurance company has said we are not covered for the repair to the chimney (more of the render looks like it will come off and the missing side) as it was not done properly in the first place. Nothing hit the chimney during the storms and there are no trees nearby etc.
How do I go about tackling the housing developer as it is outside of their “warranty” period however render should not be falling off after less than 20 years.
Thank you in advance
