I've had this snake plant for about a year and it's starting to show signs of damage on the leaves and leaf curling. Can someone help me to determine the cause? Could it be water inconsistencies or possible insect issue?

No bugs and the only problem I see with your plants, is it's so full of plants there's not enough water for them all. The dry brown spots are nothing to worry about and is a sign of not enough water. You can water your snake little more or you can do a division on the snake plants. Make two plants out of this one to help increase the water volume in the roots. Just don't plant them too deep and let the soil dry well after doing the division.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Your Snake Plant is fine and healthy. Some blemishes are normal. It is also normal for some older leaves to gradually discolor, wilt and die back as they age. As long as the leaf dieback is not excessive, there is nothing to be concerned about.

Continue to care for it as you have. Don't alter your watering routine and leave the soil and roots alone and undisturbed.
