Plastering and Plasterboard finish to ceilings and walls

Use the pencil on a cane to mark the ceiling to indicate where blemishes need attention. Use the other pencil on the walls. Use pencils sparingly just to indicate the area needing attention. Never use any pen to do this.

This list has been compiled in association with Brickkickers who provide a professional snagging service to the new home buyer.


This snagging checklist is by no means exhaustive but is simply a guide to the main defects that arise in buildings given the writer’s many years of experience within the house building industry. Should you experience any problems in the identification of defects in your own home please contact a professional.


Brickkickers offer a new home 'snagging' inspection service through its nationwide network of construction and property professionals. They carry out a thorough inspection of your home and help you to present the results of the inspection to your builder, so that they can rectify the faults. The inspectors know the standards that the warranty providers impose on new homes to ensure defects are corrected at the builder’s own expense.
