A Snagging Inspection Of Your New Home Is Essential

snagging inspection in London

There is nothing quite like moving into a brand-new home – brand-new in the sense that it has just been completed. Whether it is on a small estate that has been constructed or whether you have had it built to your own individual requirements, you can’t wait to get the keys!

However, before you do move in, there is one very important thing that you need to do and that is to have it checked over for snags. You may have the best builders in the country, but even they can make mistakes. Sometimes these mistakes are minor, such as paint splashes, scratched glass on a window, and so on, but even so they need to be rectified before you hand over your money.

Of course, you can look over the home yourself, but unless you have a trained eye it is very easy to miss things. While they may sometimes be minor – which can still be annoying when you discover them later – you may also miss something very important such as faulty plumbing, electrics, a slipped tile on the roof, and more.

This is why it is vitally important to have your new build checked over by expert snagging inspectors such as our team at New Build Snagging Specialists. It’s what we do.

We Know What To Look for

The point is that, as experts with many years of experience in both construction and the snagging industry (yes, snagging is an industry of its’ own) we know what to look out for when carrying out a snagging inspection in London. We will spot things that 99 out of 100 people would never spot.

Our team of professionals will check over absolutely everything that is visible in your new home. That includes the roof, external walls, fencing, gates, potting shed – anything and everything that you are going to have to pay for, in order to ensure that it meets the rigid standards of the New Homes Quality Board. We can also provide you with an inspection by drone and a thermographic inspection as well.

Once we have carried out your snagging inspection in London, we will then provide you with a complete report within 48 hours. This report will cover all defects and issues that require attention. It is written in plain English and will also include photos of faults found.

In addition, we categorise the faults according to the level of severity, so that serious issues can be dealt with immediately.
