Independent and professional snagging inspections


How many times have you stepped into a brand-new house for inspection and found defects that you just couldn’t overlook? It’s not only frustrating but also unfair to you to pay full price for a half-done house.
Surely, imperfections are part of the charm. But should you be expected to pay for them?

What is snagging?

Simply put, snags are minor and major defects in a property. Any kind of scratch or broken unit can be referred to as a snag. Although it is the builder’s or contractor’s responsibility to perform a thorough inspection of the property once it’s completed, many fail to do so.

As a result, property buyers have to bear additional costs after purchasing the property. At TEL Kitchens, we find this to be unfair to not only the buyer but also the investors who put down millions of pounds for the property’s development. And that’s why we worry about the UK’s property market.

Why snagging is a problem?

When you think about snagging, most defects are related to aesthetics. But certain snags can actually affect the functionality of the property, besides just making it look unattractive.

Cracks in the ceiling are one of the best examples of a problematic snag. They represent a larger issue with the property’s structure. Besides, broken kitchen worktops can be risky to be around lest they fall while you are working on them.

What’s an ideal snagging list?

While there are numerous snags and every property may have distinctive defects, here are the most common ones that you should never ignore.

Ajar or stuck door, scratched frame, gaps between the concrete and the frame, chips, and paint splashes are some problematic snags in doors and windows.
Scratched and stained flooring is the most common snag that the property buyers come across in the UK. Marked and paint splashed snags are other important snags, as well.
Cracks and uneven finish on the walls and shrinkage cracks around the edges of the ceilings are some other huge concerns for most property owners.
Look for broken sliders or hinged door on the wardrobes along with the common chips and improperly polished surfaces.
You should keep an eye out for untidy and patchy finishes around the lighting fixtures and switchboards. Also, make sure your switches are well-fitted and functioning as promised.

Why opt for a snagging service?

Ideally, every subcontractor should incorporate snagging services in every project. But both developers and investors have to end up outsourcing it another company and spend more than needed.
