Although we specialize in boundary surveys, we are qualified and equipped to handle all basic land surveying tasks including topographic surveys, construction layout, and mortgage loan inspections. We deliver the same quality service in these areas as we do in boundary surveys.
  1. Boundary Surveys
    Thorough records research. Diligent reconnaissance. Accurate field work. Precise computations. High quality plats. Informative reports. It's not just our business - it's our hobby!
  2. Mortgage Loan Inspections
    A mortgage loan inspection, or MLI, is not a complete survey. The purpose of an MLI is to provide information that a real estate lender or insurer may use to determine the insurability of the real estate and its improvements. It is NOT a boundary survey though often assumed to be. An MLI involves but a fraction of the effort required for a boundary survey and should not be relied upon for determination of property lines.
  3. Topographic Surveys
    A topographic survey is primarily used for the location of physical features of the land. The map produced typically depicts contour lines, buildings, paved and/or unpaved roads, trails, driveways, parking lots, wells, utilities, etc. We are currently equipped to perform small scale topographic surveys.
  4. Construction Layout
    If you are planning to build, you need to be sure you place your building within the required set-backs, and that it is laid out according to approved plans. Assuming you have had your boundaries surveyed, we can stake out your building(s) to meet those requirements.
