Here at Snag List Pro, we’re experts at house and new building snagging. Our experienced and friendly team use the latest equipment such as thermal imaging to perform each inspection.
Whether you need a new build snagging list or maybe you’re just looking for more information on what the inspection involves, whatever you need, we’re here to help with our professional service and friendly approach.
A snagging list is a new build’s version of a property survey and will record each issue or ‘snag’, including things like damage to paintwork, gaps between doors or defects with staircases.
All aspects of your home, garden and outbuildings will be included in the survey and reported on the new build snagging list provided to you. Our team take extra care to inspect for fire safety compliance, external works, electrical systems, fans and ventilation and much more.
We also check paint jobs have been completed and are smooth. If you have a loft, we will look for gaps or issues with the roof and insulation. Take a look at the full list of checks in our new build snagging survey.
When a survey takes place, we will inspect the building for any damage or faults that need to be corrected by the construction company or builders.
Interestingly, snagging does not have a defined meaning and is not a contractual term. The slang expression is used across the construction sector to mean the process of inspecting to create a list of defects in building work that the contractor will rectify.
It’s important to request a survey, especially on a new build property, as it could save you a lot of money and hassle in the future — we can highlight issues before the warranty ends on your home.
A new home snagging list can present any issues to the housing developer, so if you’ve lived in your new build home for up to two years, you should contact us to seek our services.
Once your list has been completed, you will receive a snag report detailing any work that will need to be carried out.
The benefits of this report ensure that your home is a safe environment for your family, as well as guaranteeing that your house has been finished to relevant industry standards. You can take a look at our snag list example report to get an idea of what you’ll receive.
