The walk through of the punch list should not be used by the client at the discovery session. Visiting the site before meeting makes the client ready for the questions which can be asked. It is sometimes very important to make sure that you have met all the expectations of the client.

The punch list of the project also includes the incorrect installations to present materials or structures.
