“... many thanks again for the sterling service”
SiteSnagging.co.uk helped me hugely in successfully moving into my new home. I was late organising a snagging inspection, but when I contacted Site Snagging about conducting one at relatively short notice the team were very communicative, instantly responding to my email requests. They made it very easy to establish a time and date to conduct the review, and all the particulars were clear from the start. They could not have been more helpful in the run up to the inspection. The inspection was incredibly thorough and spent a number of hours going over every inch of the property. I was told that the report would be with me the next working day, and turned up in my inbox promptly, as promised. The report itself was 21 pages long and comprised of a clear breakdown of every element of the property, with high definition, annotated pictures that made it absolutely clear where any defects and issues were. The clarity of the report allowed me to easily discuss the issues with my developer, leaving no room for confusion or argument. Absolutely great service from start to finish. I will be recommending to friends and family in the future!
Many thanks again for the sterling service, wish you all the best!

"...Site Snagging had my best interests at heart...money very well spent.".
Having practiced as a specialist construction lawyer for over 15 years, I know just how important snags are for buyers of new-build properties and if you do not address these at the outset, it could make occupation/letting a nightmare. I have never worked or used Site Snagging before but their service was great from my first call to them. Very accommodating as to my requirements and I felt very much like Site Snagging had my best interests at heart. They acted upon short notice, undertook a very thorough inspection and produced a fully comprehensive snagging report including lots of photographs highlighting plenty of pertinent snags and giving recommendations - leaving no stone unturned! Money very well spent. Thank you guys!

"...you were the only snagging company that responded in a professional manner".
When looking for a snagging survey I contacted about 8 snagging inspection companies. All quotes were very similar, but you were the only company that responded in a professional manner, using full finished sentences and appropriate punctuation. In the context we found that very reassuring. I look forward to getting the survey results. Kind regards

"This service is highly recommended".
I was buying a new property from a reputable builder, but thought it would be wise to have it snagged professionally as although my attention to detail is very good I am not a building expert. We met up on site as agreed and I knew immediately that I had made the right decision as it would have been a complete disaster without Site Snagging’s support (Robin Coleridge). Although the site was nearing completion it was about a week too early and everything was very messy/rushed. Fortunately Robin took control while the site manager tried to distract me and Robin systematically/thoroughly worked his way around the plot. We were then put under pressure to get the report back within a few days, but to my amazement I received a comprehensive 9 page report back the very same day listing 112 defects. Most of the things highlighted I would have struggled to identify/list so all I can say is that I would not recommend anybody without some building industry experience trying to do this themselves. This service is highly recommended.

"Your service was top value for money ...".
This is a word of thanks for doing the snagging on my Stewart Milne property. The report you issued was comprehensive and the attention to detail is highly commendable. I do not think I would have identified even 1% of the faults listed by you. Your service was top value for money and I would recommend your services to anyone buying a new property. The builders are always in a rush and they don't bother about a good finish and these faults cannot be identified by the untrained eye. I am glad that I found you during my Google search and must admit that my decision to contact you was influenced by the positive testimonials on your web site.

“10 out of 10 for me, very hard to find these days!”
I utilised the services of Site Snagging for reassurance prior to completing on my new build property, and I'm very glad I did!
The inspection was extremely thorough and detailed, picking up some 140 snags even though I was told the property was ready to move in to. The report was outstanding with each individual room broken down with faults making it easier to check the builders had completed all outstanding snags, plus the addition of photos for main areas of concern helped me focus in on the problems at hand. If it wasn't for Site Snagging’s high attention to detail I wouldn't have noticed half the poor workmanship found and my builders could not argue due to how professional the report was. If you are thinking is the service worth the money (your builders will say not!) but I believe it is worth every penny and in fact I am going to use it to get “extras” for my home given how many snags were found!! From start to finish, I have found this service to be extremely professional. Questions I asked got answered and communication has been spot on but most of all it gave me piece of mind that the house I was buying with my hard earned cash was up to scratch. 10 out of 10 for me, very hard to find these days!

"I was naïve enough to think that you would not spot any defects...
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the inspection that you undertook on my 2 bed apartment at the new Altitude development.
I was naïve enough to think that you would not spot any defects (it was after all a friend’s persistence that convinced me to have a snagging survey done on my apartment) as I was informed that all the snagging had been done before I completed on the property. So I was very surprised that your report ran to over 2 pages of snags! I am pleased to say that all the defects have now been made good by Barratts (I am encouraged that they have good customer service) which is such a huge weight off my mind. Thanks again,

"We found Site Snagging to be ultra-flexible, highly professional and extremely thorough."
Site Snagging inspected our new build 5 bedroom home two days after we moved in. As our builder constructed our home to very tight deadlines, we thought it prudent to engage a professional inspector to quickly identify all our issues in one fell swoop. In just under one day, the Site Snagging inspector identified and documented snags that would have taken us "non-professionals" many weeks if not months to spot. The result: we now have a comprehensive list of tasks that we can track progress against with the builder. We are now reviewing our report and its 184 snags with the builder and prioritising the remedial work accordingly. Furthermore, because our report is an independent view, our relationship with the site manager is insulated. We found Site Snagging to be ultra-flexible, highly professional and extremely thorough. We whole heartedly recommend their service.

"...Site Snagging did an outstanding job and got the builder to take care of LOADS of issues that would have been completely ignored.”
I found the service provided by Site Snagging truly beneficial to me, especially as I was dealing with matters from abroad. I found the Site Snagging website using a simple Google search and I called them up to discuss snagging the property in Barrow in Furness for me. Basically, they were there within a few days and they did a marvellous job. I liked the prompt communications from Site Snagging whether I contacted them by phone or by email and they produced a detailed report with photos very quickly. I'm absolutely sure that most of the work done to improve my apartment would have been overlooked if I had completed the purchase without getting Site Snagging to inspect my property first. Due to their diligence, I got many items sorted out in my property that I would never even have known about as they found lots of examples of shoddy finishing and some larger problems too. The bottom line is that having a property snagged by an experienced person (especially if you are buying a brand new or refurbished property) is money well spent, because undetected problems could prove costly further down the line. I can honestly say that Site Snagging has been an absolute gem of a find! I only wish I had come across them earlier. I will be recommending their excellent service for sure!

"...every property will have issues"
Investing in an inspection with Site Snagging is well worth the money, especially for new builds. Their attention to detail and ability to understand the quality of the workmanship helped us ensure that we got the quality we were expecting from our new flat. We simply could not believe the number of snags that were found but every property will have issues and getting these addressed early helps ensure that we have been able to enjoy living in the flat rather than chasing the developer to fix issues we discover during the handover.”

.."I would like to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude"..
“I believe the pressure and effective follow-up action from Site Snagging played a crucial role in getting them (the developer) to give priority in completing the works for our 2 new apartments in London. For this, I would like to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude...we certainly would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends for your value-for-money and excellent service. I'm indeed a happy and satisfied customer. Once again, many thanks!!”

"You were extremely professional and very thorough"...
"Just a note to thank you for your service recently regarding new house snagging. You were extremely professional and very thorough on both occasions with the two properties you inspected. The follow up action with the developer was good. The snagging in both properties was again completed in good time down to your continued involvement. Should I, or any of my associates, require snagging inspections in the future then I would have no hesitation in contacting you."
Terence Anderson, Managing Director, Amman Valley Training Ltd, (3 bedroom house and 2 bedroom apartment, Charles Church Development, Ammanford, South Wales)
"Thank you very much Site Snagging!"
"Being in Aberdeen I was worried I wouldn’t get a good, experienced, independent, snagging company who could provide us with a personalised, inspection service for our new-build, Stewart Milne home. But Site Snagging were very flexible and helpful. I went around the property with the Inspector and soon after I received a well laid-out, detailed report. The Inspector liaised with the Site Manager and even though many snags were found, the Builders have been very efficient in rectifying over 90% of the recognised snags. Thank you very much Site Snagging!

"I would not hesitate in recommending Site Snagging."
"I contacted Site Snagging after having a poor experience with a major snagging provider. Site Snagging remained flexible and in communication with regards to changing completion deadlines and produced good quality and detailed reports on each inspection. I would not hesitate in recommending Site Snagging."

"... an expert eye and you have been brilliant."
I've just had a run through your report, as I didn't have internet access before, and it looks extremely comprehensive and detailed. You really have done a great job and helped us so much in our first house purchase. We were not initially sure if we could afford to use a Snagging Inspector but I am so glad that we saved up and bit the bullet. I will certainly be rcommending you to anyone I know who is moving into a new build. As first time buyers, without a diy bone in our body, you have been our 'responsible adult' with an expert eye and you have been brilliant. Even though the developer haven't been the easiest for you to deal with, they obviously noted your professionalism... Once again thanks for your work on our property and you can guarantee we will be a walking advert for you!

"...a company that will listen and carry out your instructions"
Site Snagging inspected 4 apartments for me in Derby, who were very helpful throughout the snagging process. If you want a company that will listen and carry out your instructions, then Site Snagging is your company.
