The flooring in my new extension has started coming unstuck, its been
a year since the extension and the grouting is coming off between tiles.
The tiles are actually bouncing.
Is this an issue I can take up with my building insurance company ?

    This would not be covered by insurance. You’d need to take this issue up with the installer.

    It depends on your policy. Ask your insurance company.
    Also check the guarantee from the builder who built the extension.

    No. It is up to whoever laid the floor. It is bad workmanship not accidential damage.

    Sounds like it could be a problem with the extension.

    I’d get the builder back out to look at it.

    This is not an insurance issue. It is, instead, a workmanship issue or it could be an issue with the product that was chosen. Hopefully you used a reputable contractor who will work with you to identify the problem and help you resolve it. Good luck.

    No, because there was no incident that caused damage. This is either wear and tear, or inherent vice or poor installation.

    And your deductible will be MUCH higher than the cost to fix this yourself.
