THE SNAGGING PROCESS
It’s a term that has become more mainstream than it once was. Thanks to the rising number of new build homes (50,000 built in the first quarter of 2021 alone) and social media platforms, such as TikTok and Instagram shining light on the subject, snagging is being talked about more and more.
But what is it? How does it affect you? We put together this blog to clue you in on this, sometimes overlooked, aspect of construction.
What is Snagging?
To understand what the snagging process is, we must first know what a snag is. After building work has been completed on a property, there may be small defects, problems, anomalies and oversights remaining on the inside and outside of the property. These are snags.
These defects can range from unfinished aspects of the home, such as fixtures not being fitted properly. To oversights, such as misaligned brickwork. In some cases, the property, appliances or fixings could be broken.
Most snags are purely cosmetic – maybe a spot on the wall in the kitchen is missing some paintwork or there could be a scratch across a garage door. However, some snags can be serious and can cause harm if not amended.
So, a snagging process is the identification of these snags and then putting in the work for them to be fixed.
Why Snagging is Important
As mentioned above, snagging is a very important process. The two main reasons are: no harm can be caused by snags and the homeowner is receiving value for their investment.
For many of us, buying a home is the biggest investment we will make in our lives. So, of course, you want it to be perfect inside and out, top to bottom. After all, if you’re planning to make your new home your forever home, you want it to last.
Anyone purchasing a brand new house or flat should seriously consider seeking out a snagging report. There are professional snagging companies who will check over your property and create you a snagging list; this list will be passed onto the appropriate people to get to resolving these snags promptly.
Snags can also occur within homes having an extension, renovation or conversion added to them.
