    I suspect the only way you’ll find out is by taking the builder to court. Probably be a lot more expensive than retrofitting the trays.

    saying that another party didnt realize that you made a mistake is not an excuse for making the mistake.

    did you sign off on the work back then that it is to your satisfaction?
