Why Would I Need A Snagging Inspection? My Home Has A 10-Year Warranty

Moving home is known to be one of the most stressful experiences that we ever have, and yet the average person in the UK moves every seven years. The problem is that there is an endless list of things to do, both before moving and afterwards, and there is always that niggling feeling that you might have forgotten to do something.

Even once you have moved in, there are things to attend to. You don’t like the wallpaper in the living room, so that needs sorting out. The garden is a mess – and that can take a lot of weekends to deal with! The loft needs insulating. It goes on.

So, it is just so much better if you can buy a brand-new home that doesn’t have all of these things to deal with once you have moved in. However, there is a proviso here, and that is that you have had the home checked over for snags before moving in.

Eh? Snags? But it comes with a ten-year warranty!

If Every Home Was Perfect, We Would Not Have A Business!

Yes, it may do. But without a shadow of a doubt, you need a snagging inspection in Essex before you move into your new home. At New Build Snagging Specialists, this is what we do. If you stop to think about it for a minute, we would not be in business if every newly built home was perfect!

Consider this: there is a requirement for more new homes to be built in the UK, and whichever party forms the next government they are all promising to double down on that. Builders are under ever more pressure to complete new homes quickly.

However, at the same time there is a shortage of skilled tradesmen, so there is a potential for more things to go wrong. In fact, there are upwards of 150 faults in the average – note that we said averagenewly built home.

Some people will say that it’s not really a problem because there is a warranty, so if there are any issues it is down to the builder to fix them. Yes, that’s true, but what if the builder has gone out of business? That could leave you with a serious – and very expensive – problem to deal with.

If we carry out a snagging inspection in Essex of your new home, it is only going to cost a few hundred pounds – in most cases a lot less than £500. When you are spending in the hundreds of thousands, it is very little. And it means that you can have all the faults and flaws dealt with before you move in, giving you complete peace of mind.
