Importance of a New-Build Professional Snagging Survey

After investing a significant amount of money on your new property, the last thing you’ll want to do is commit to spending even more money on addressing defective repair works, which could indeed prove to be incredibly expensive and time- consuming, once your developer’s warranty period has expired.

A common misconception in the new home industry is that you don’t need to have a professional snagging surveys done if your planning to purchase a new-build home as your warranty provider will have completed all the relevant checks and has conducted a snagging inspection of your new property, this simply is not the case.

The facts are that most new home warranty providers carry out what is known as Key Stage Inspections at various stages of the build, these consist of, Foundations, Superstructure, First-Fix, Pre-Plaster, Pre-handover and Drains Test.

All key stage inspections carried out by your warranty provider are visual inspections and it is not uncommon for these essential inspections to be missed during the construction phase for multiple reasons.

Heat Loss Survey

 A Thermal Imaging Survey is an effective method of detecting energy waste in your property. It is a non-invasive way to identify problems and diagnose areas of energy loss and a cost-saving alternative to cutting into building fabric.

The thermal imaging  camera pinpoints where warm air is escaping from your home by detecting differences in temperature.

These cold spots will eventually lead to damp, condensation and mould and could be caused by faulty insulation – although there are other reasons for them such as air leaking around window or doorframes.
