Unforseen issues arise in a new build property at various stages of it's first couple of years which is why Developer's provide a warranty between 2-5 years.
On our Completion Snagging Survey we will check everything from the cavity wall insulation to the quality of paintwork. The check lasts on average 4 hours depending upon the size of your property.
After a few weeks / months, we will then revisit the property with the original list to check the work has been carried out to our satisfaction. Any issues that have not been rectified we will raise in a new report for them to address. During this visit (or on a separate visit during the colder seasons) we will carry out a thermographic heat loss survey inside and out [on houses only]. Our inspectors holding Building Thermography qualifications so are able to identify issues ranging from missing insulation to draughts.
Our last stage of the full package comes close to the end of the Warranty period your developer provide. We find it best carrying out the inspection around 18 months - 22 months after completion to allow your builder time to complete the works before the 24 month deadline. We will concentrate at this stage on issues that have not been apparent on our prior snagging inspections; such as cracks, signs of damp and roof issues.
Overall, this package is ideal to ensure peace of mind throughout the journey of your property's warranty period. Often customers are left footing the bill of issues they notice too late, or are simply unable to spot them without the professional knowledge and tools our snaggers have.
The cost of a full package costs as little as £795 and this is only payable after the initial inspection.
