Certificates of Survey:
When we perform a boundary survey and locate the improvements, wetlands, and water bodies on a piece of property we create a plat (drawing or map) from the gathered information and certify that the information on the Certificate of Survey is a true and accurate representation as determined by a Registered Land Surveyor.
Thinking about building your dream home, solve a water drainage problem, prevent a water drainage problem, or trying to design a tricky road? A topographic survey may be just what you need. A topographic survey involves the collection of horizontal and vertical data to produce contours on a map. Most architects will require a topographic survey before they design the layout of a house so they can design the layout in the most effective and aesthetically pleasing manner and make sure that water drainage won’t be a problem.
Have you ever thought how nice it would be to have a nice map of your property? Deer stands, trails, wetlands, lakes, rivers, roads, driveways, houses/hunting shacks can all be located on your own personal map! You can plan your land use a lot more effectively with a good map, whether it’s tree farming, deer hunting, ski trails, or trying to decide where to build your new house.
Based on construction plans, we can “site” your structure and stake the corners of your structure before you break ground. In conjunction with a Certificate of Survey, this can be useful for many reasons. You will be assured that your structure will meet setback requirements from boundary lines, water bodies, and bluffs. You will also be assured that your structure is starting out “square”, we are often asked to return to the site to mark the foundation corners on the footings for this very reason.
