Punch List Inspection
 
A punch list is a list of tasks that need to complete to satisfy the terms of a construction contract, or for a seller to get a third party view of cosmetic items that need to be fixed. Such lists may be included in the contract itself, but more commonly, they are generated in the final phases of construction, as people walk around the site and note down any issues and deficiencies that need to be resolved.
 
They are very useful for project management, whether people are dealing with a contractor or doing the work themselves, because it's easy to miss small details which can be problematic later.

They are very useful for project management, whether people are dealing with a contractor or doing the work themselves, because it's easy to miss small details which can be problematic later.

The term “punch list” is a reference to the fact that people used to punch a hole in the paper next to tasks which had been completed. Today, these lists may be managed as simple written checklists, or even in electronic form. Electronic ones are very convenient because they can be distributed to many people and may be updated instantly, allowing everyone to see progress. This can be especially important when multiple contractors need to address the same issue.

Many construction information websites have sample punch lists that people can print out to include in contracts and in inspections of a project in its final days to identify problems that need to be corrected. While some of the items may feel petty, property owners should remember that the contractor is being paid to complete a job in full, not to leave minor and irritating tasks for someone else to finish, and contractors will respect complaints or concerns that were clearly outlined on a list. A punchlist inspection can be added to a basic, total, or condo inspection. if there are any concerns about cosmetic issues that are not checked in any other type of inspection. It can also be done as a separate, individual inspection. The items checked in a punchlist inspection include:

  • Countertops
  • Trim throughout structure
  • Floor coverings
  • Light fixtures
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Cabinets
  • Paint coverage
  • Tiling & grout
  • Blinds
  • Any scratches, chips, or other cosmetic defects
