Photographs of snagging defects in new homes


These photographs show that the quality of new homes in 2011 is as bad as ever.  Bricklayers cannot build a soldier arch properly (Charles Church) and tradesmen seem incapable of fixing fittings in line, level or vertical (Bellway).  Each year, on a minimum average, defects like these, are overlooked or ignored over 1500 times by the house builder’s own staff.   See table below.

This is in addition to the 30 or so tradesmen working on the site each day.

or missed by a house builder’s own staff in a typical year.
