External Snagging Inspection
We begin our snagging survey outside, inspecting areas out of sight; issues of poor workmanship include roof issues, cracking, and failures in damp proofing.
Internal Snagging Inspection
Our snagger will then carry out a thorough inspection internally to every accessible part of your house including the loft. On average we raise 150 issues.
Thermographic & Borescope
When booking you will be prompted whether to include a borescope and thermal heat loss survey for just +£45 Please read below for more details...
Our surveyors hold RICS accredited qualifications and specialise in heat loss, making us able to to identify both minor and major issues ranging from a lack of cavity wall insulation to leaks.
We will aim to arrive between 8-10am and will snag every part of your house externally and internally.
As well as being very experienced and qualified, we use specialist tools to assist us finding issues out of sight. As part of your inspection your snag report and overview report will include:
An option when booking your snagging inspection is whether to have a borescope & thermal inspection. This checks for draughts and heat loss through the cavity wall insulation voids, and there is no other way in which to identify such issues which is why we recommend all customers with a traditional build house to opt in.
A traditional house is one built of block and brick, whereby the insulation is typically pumped into the cavity and often there are voids.
We do not advise this on timber-framed properties or if it is fully rendered. We also cannot use a borescope if you have an apartment, but you will still get photographs of your heating system with our thermal camera to check it is efficiently working. The thermal camera is fantastic to not only identify issues with the heating system but also for draughts. On average we find most houses in the North and Midlands of the UK have at least one area of heat loss which is often noticeable in winter months.
"Snagging - the very name is enough to put you off. No one likes having to deal with problems or hitches. But for anyone who buys a newly built or converted property, the S-word can be crucial. Do it right and you could save yourself thousands of pounds. Do it wrong and you could end up with a problem property"
