    Hi - I am moving in to a new build and there's various issues with the fittings and painting / finish around them. See examples below - let me know if you can't see the images. Surely none of the below are acceptable but can someone give me any advice?

    Here the panel is about 1 cm disjointed

    Just wondering what you reckon to these? Compared to where I currently live this is shoddy workmanship, but I don’t know how lax the NHBC tolerances really are....

    hi , always difficult to tell with photos of white walls , but its worth remembering that there are some rules to be followed when snagging

    the NHBC require you to stand at 2m away ..is just one ...nothing micro examined will withstand close scrutiny

    on the whole i would say they meet the NHBC REQUIREMENTS , however if you dont think that they are good enough then speak with your builder
    have a look at the decorating standards laid out in the technical manual , you can get this from the net by a simple google search

    the doors ...no attempt has been made at matching the colours this is not acceptable , a little variation can be expected
