Hello design peeps! So, what’s a punch list? We’ll be answering that question today. First of all, it won’t hurt you! But it is one of the last and most important steps you will take before finalizing your design project.
The Punch List
A punch list is simply a list of items you create when evaluating any renovation or remodel project that was completed by a contractor. It’s the process you go thru to review your new space with a keen eye and look for any faulty details, scratches, missing items, etc. It’s your responsibility to let the contractor know what needs to be fixed, replaced, repainted, etc. They expect there to be minor items to correct before they accept their final payment. So this is your time to point out any issues and have them made right.
The Last Punch List Item
Here’s a short video showing the kitchen just before completion of the final punch list item. Can you guess what it is?
Okay, it was fairly obvious! But, there were other little issues that the contractor was happy to correct. For example, a drawer that didn’t close properly. The door hinges on the pantry enclosure required adjusting. The punch list is your opportunity to get everything fixed to your satisfaction. And I am very pleased!
The Completed Kitchen
I am so happy with how the new kitchen turned out. Now, to focus on that blank wall area!
Do you have a favorite “thing” in this new kitchen? If so, please feel free to comment below. I can’t decide between the new island and the trash can pull out door next to the sink. But I also love all that new counter space!
