Why Snag Inspect?

At SnagInspect we work for the homeowner and we specialise in inspecting new build houses for any snagging effects.

Did you know that a typical new home in the UK will return over 100 snags as most developments are built on mass and to tight timelines? 

The house builder is not obliged to inform you about the defects that they are aware of. 

No matter the type of snag, if it has been caused due to the home builder’s negligence you can add it to the list to be fixed.

We give you a peace of mind by conducting a professional snagging inspection of your new-build house. Our SnagInspector will produce a comprehensive photographic snagging report with findings in just 2 days after the inspection that you can give to your builder to address. We also provide Re-inspection, Thermal Imaging and Drone Inspection Services. 

 

We work for you. We are not associated with any developer, house builder or warranty provider. This means that we are independent and our surveys always represent your best interests without compromise.

Buying a house is the biggest and the most important purchase of your life. We will help you take the worry of your mind about the quality of your purchase and provide you with a structured way forward to deal with any snagging defects. Snagging is a complicated task that requires specialist knowledge across many trades and equipment. By identifying and reporting all the imperfections in one go that needs to be corrected, we save you time and hassle.

A snagging list is highly recommended when you purchase a new-build property. You have the right to have any snags fixed by your builder for no extra cost, so there is no reason not to undertake a professional snagging inspection.

Our SnagInspectors are highly qualified and experienced. They bring over 20 years of professional experience working on sites. We worked on many various properties across the UK, from new-build properties, one-bedroom apartments, listed properties to five bedrooms houses. We have adopted an effective and structured inspection methodology which picks up snagging defects that a layperson will not be aware of.

What is Snagging?

Snagging is the process of checking a new building for minor faults that need to be rectified.

Those problems are still within the property once building work has been completed and the house builder is not obliged to inform you about the defects that they are aware of. 

No matter the type of snag, if it has been caused due to the home builder’s negligence you can add it to the list to be fixed.

Why use a Professional Snagging Company?

Consider this for a second: since the top snagging defects that we see in new build, properties range from plasterwork patching, tiling defects, incomplete loft insulation, pipes not lagged in roof void areas, missing external brickwork, problems with a caulking of architraves and skirting boards or mislaid turf, just to name a few, how much time and effort identifying those problems would it take if you were doing it yourself?

You really do not want to be left footing the bill of defects you notice too late or are unable to identify them without knowledge and specialist equipment. Considering how much a new home costs, paying a specialist to make sure you get value for your money is worth every penny.

Also, our snagging reports are very thorough because they are done professionally. Every defect is photographed with a location and a clear description. As a result of using our professional services, you have an exhaustive snagging list to give to your builder so that they can rectify the snags at no cost for you.
