Q: How do we pursue a settlement against Lowes for kitchen remodel valued at over $30,000 paid for in full 8 months ago

Lowes sent an unlicensed installer to our house to rip out and install new kitchen cabinets and hood vent system. Various breaches of contract including massively subpar work, theft from our home, dangerous living conditions, multiple violations of code, all needs be ripped out and start over . It has been 8 1/2 months and Lowes has told us that our kitchen has to be all ripped out and started over the proper way. They have since fired the original installer. In the meantime we’ve been without a kitchen that meets code since October 2020. After cabinets were originally installed, we paid a different company to install countertops. Now that it is been discovered by Lowes that everything that they did is incorrect, they want me to pay for the countertops to be removed and stored and then for one section to have new ones cut and re-put back in my house. They want me to pay for this and then they say they will reimburse me once I sign the paperwork saying that the job is complete.

A: Talk to a local lawyer and start the process of filing a lawsuit, this will have to be in superior court and I would not attempt this without professional legal representation.
