Missing materials during building works
I've just posted a thread about some materials going missing during some building work here: https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6467972/missing-items-during-building-work/p1?new=1
As I said in that post, It feels like some horrible game of cluedo where we stand to lose £1000. So I'm trying to understand who might be liable, or whether any insurance is likely to cover the loss.
It is hard to know whether the loss is down to theft, or misplacement, but it clearly isn't our fault and we obviously can't afford to pay again. I assumed our insurance would say that this was excluded from a normal household policy, so I asked Alex whether he thought the insurance he had taken out on the works would cover it (as we went through a checklist before starting the work that agreed insuring the site was his responsibility). However, he has taken offence and feels like I'm trying to blame him for the loss, and has refused to do any further work to finish the job or to communicate further. I have no idea what to do now, but it is making me feel very stressed and anxious - especially as we may now need to find a new builder to finish the work.
