I have 40 years experience in the building industry to date. I have worked with every trade in the business & have seen the way some so called “tradesmen” leave their work. Many of these “tradesmen” have very little regard for your new home! I have the knowledge of where to find the faults, what the most likely cause of the fault is & in a lot of cases can also repair the fault! I once found hot water coming to the bathroom toilet cistern and no, it wasn’t a Bidet!
I have often been asked to re-snag a property from a house buyer who has already had a snag list undertaken by a different company. The reason being that when they talk to their neighbours the conversation inevitably comes round to discussing snag lists & they find out that my list is a more thorough list than the one they received from their own engineer!
I am available to answer the phone from 07:30 until 22:00 & will always reply to a message as soon as I am free. I also supply any DIY / building advice you might need after you have moved into your new home. My aim is to not only have you as a customer but also to be a trusted friend who you can rely on in the future.
On a standard semi – detached 4 bedroom house the inspection can take anything from 3 – 5 hours depending on the size of the house & the quality of the finish. Be wary of any engineer that tells you it can be done in a shorter time as it is physically not possible to carry out a proper inspection in such a short time.
The minimum amount of faults I have found has been 53 and I considered it to be a very well built property. They were minor faults & mostly repetitive throughout the house. The maximum I have found to date has been 253!
The builders will normally give you an approximate date for the snag list to be carried out. That is the time to book your chosen engineer.
Be mindful that these dates can & do change. It is always advisable to have a snag list carried out before you complete on the purchase of the property!
Yes, I will provide you with 3 sample lists with your quotation.
Yes you can. A lot of people do not get a snag list done at the time of purchase thinking that 1) the house is brand new. 2) the builders have their own engineers. 3) there is a guarantee in place & sure what could possibly be wrong with it? Take a look at the gallery section to see what does go wrong!
It is only when the buyers have moved in that they start to notice things are not quite as they should be. Don’t worry as I can still produce a snag list for you to give to the builder which will be every bit as good as if you had it done before closing the purchase of your home.
