Hi all. I got an installer to install a new IKEA flatpack kitchen and they damaged the bottom floor of the inside of the sink cabinet. The chipboard underneath is exposed. They want to just put white silicone over it to cover it up, and while I'm inclined to do this to save the huge hassle (and risk of further damage) of having to tear out part of the kitchen to replace it, I'm really unhappy to be patching with silicone on a brand new kitchen :/ The kitchen could have gone years without this happening, period.
Unfortunately I didn't notice this for over 2 weeks as I thought this was originally just garbage from a distance and I've already paid the installer, so I don't have withholding payment as leverage anymore…
Am I within my rights to demand the whole wooden board be replaced?
