Is this sentence clear or is there a better choice:

We have been unable to contact the insured to finalize the punch list but will continue to reach out to them and provide an update.

@LBrinkmann,
That's actually pretty good, but if you want to tighten it a little, you could say:

We have been unable to contact the insured to finalize the punch list but once we do, we'll provide an update.

I'm a minimalist with words.

I've never heard this term before. What is a punch list?

@Region Philbis,
We called it a Deficiency List, which is the same thing.

@LBrinkmann,
We could'nt contact the insured to end the punch list, but we'll keep on trying as to update it.
