What is Snagging?

Snagging is a term used in the construction industry for the process of identifying issues with a new-build property. New homes can often have defects or ‘snags’ caused by a range of factors such as workmanship or equipment. The onus will be on the homeowner to itemise and report any defects to the house builder or developer. That’s where we come in.

We inspect your new-build home and log all the defects in need of fixing by your house builder, potentially saving you thousands of pounds in repairs at a later date or ensuring the safety of your property in the event of serious defects being uncovered.

We are experts in identifying defects quickly using our specialist equipment, so we’re able to spot everything. We photograph and document everything, before supplying you with a professional snagging report that your builder can follow to carry out the necessary repairs.

Why get a snagging report?

There’s a common misconception that new properties are free from the sort of defects and imperfections that might be associated with older properties. The truth is that new properties very often have defects that arise due to poor workmanship, fewer inspections and an increase in the number of new properties built.

As a buyer, it is up to you to itemise and report a list of defects to your developer if you want the issues to be resolved.

Hiring a qualified snagging company to carry out the job for you is highly advised, as they will ensure any defect is spotted and logged, as a result of extensive training and experience and specialist equipment.
