The majority of snags in ready-for-handover units relate to “poor quality and finishing“, experts say.

“The majority of problems seem to be with cracked sanitary-ware, chipped floor and wale tiles, poorly finished grouting and sealant. We have also noted damaged water-proof membranes on roof top areas. Although not part of our scope of works, what we have noticed in general while doing our inspections is the lack of finished common facilities such as swimming pools,” Cluttons Director Lesley Preston toldEmirates 24|7.

Christiane Murray, Head of Property Management, Landmark Property Management, confirms that majority of snags listed are related to poor finishing even though their experts focus on structural, and functional and design issues.

Land Sterling – Mena experts have found the majority of defects within bathrooms and kitchens.

Company’s Managing Director Youcef Betraoui says defects such as water leaks, cracked tiles, joinery imperfections are commonly found by their engineers.
