What is a punch list?

A punch list (also referred to as a punch out list) is a checklist of outstanding issues or items that need to be finalized or fixed at a key milestone or the conclusion of a construction project.

The punch list is generally created by a general contractor or project manager and includes all of the necessary information to keep track of the progress of what needs to get done, when it’s getting done, and who is responsible for doing it.

The most common things included on the punch list include: cost category, item description, location, person responsible for completing, due date, and status.

Punch list example

Everyone has their own way of creating and tracking punch lists, some contractors will create them on their notepad while others will use spreadsheets or other electronic methods.

While spreadsheets and apps are the most common method, the structure and information you'll want to include on the punch list is the same.
