New Build Snagging Services in Cumbria
We understand that your new home is your biggest investment to date. That is why we pride ourselves on being one of the leading professional snagging companies in the UK, helping new build homeowners achieve the quality they deserve.
You may be asking yourself: why do new builds need snagging? Well, the answer is simple. Your new home would have been constructed by many different people in all weathers and conditions. Because of this combination, all new builds must have a snagging inspection performed.
What is Snagging and How Does it Work?
Snagging is the process of checking new builds for minor faults and sometimes major defects that need to be rectified. Lively Professional’s snagging services in Cumbria ensure that all snags are found and accounted for.
A professional snagger will come to your home with a checklist and ensure that everything is up to standard. At the end, you will be given a full report which you can then hand to your builder.
You can see a sample snagging report of a new build house we did in Cumbria here.
“We really can’t thank Ian enough for his expertise. Myself and my girlfriend recently bought a new home; after hearing many horror stories, we decided to contact Ian to give the spot a good once over! It is evident Ian has many years of practical and theoretical experience, snagging and turning over stones that no homeowner ever would.
Ian was extremely flexible and easy to organise with, and not to mention polite and gentlemanly on the phone with both myself and my girlfriend. My girlfriend was able to meet Ian at our new home and a few hours after Ian arrived to check to see how things were going, she said he is “a lovely man!” Explaining any questions, she had in detail.
Finally, we received both an online and paper copy of our clear and concise snagging report aiding a hasty repair on the snags found. We can’t recommend Ian enough if you in any doubt I wouldn’t think twice Ian is the man! Excellent service, professionalism, and aftercare.”
New Build Snagging List for Cumbria
We always advise using a professional snagging company to come and check your new home. This is because you should be using a professional snagger who has the relevant qualifications and experience to accurately check your property for snags.
However, if you are thinking about performing your own snagging inspection in Cumbria, then we have put together a snagging checklist that you can follow.

Throughout the whole process Ian has been great. Keeping in contact at every stage, we have been aware of everything that has been going on. With the amount of attention to detail in the snagging report that we received that was also sent the same day. It was easy to understand and work from. Well worth his fee, could not recommend more on a new build home!
Ian is highly professional and knowledgeable in his field, this is evident in how he carries out the inspection and points out to you details that you would not have thought about or even noticed. The report is highly detailed with photographs and enabled us to provide our house builder with the list of snags at the earliest stage so that we can engage with them while trades are onsite. I would recommend Ian to provide a snagging report as my first choice.
Extremely professional, efficient and reassuring service: was nervous about buying a new-build, but Ian's expertise has made a huge difference. Also faultlessly helpful and polite and answered all my (possibly stupid) questions! Can't recommend him enough and the service is worth every penny.
Cannot recommended Ian enough.
Ian was amazing so helpful with great information and hints and tips!
Ian has amazing attention to detail, Ian sat with us after and explained everything, Within 2 hours of Ian leaving we had a full in-depth report.
Thank you so much Ian you was amazing and I will fully recommend you to friends & family.
