You ask, We answer

How Much Does a Survey Cost?

Land surveying is a service-based profession and putting a flat price on surveying your unique property will vary widely. As your surveyor, we will work with you to adjust your scope to fit your budget.

Do I need be home when you come to survey?

Nope. Please give Fido an “inside” day though!

Is that a camera on legs? or “take my picture!”

If I had dollar for every time I was asked this.... No, It’s not a camera, that thing on the tripod is called a total station. A total station measures distances and angles to particular positions in the area for your survey. Those distances and angles are turned into points and those points are the data to create your survey.

How Long does it take to complete a survey?

Every property has a history. Your property’s history began the moment it was created and put in the public record, each owner and improvement is added to the record over time. We work efficiently and thoroughly to discover and locate the evidence of its history. A small residential lot survey may only take a few hours of field and office time, while an old, rural boundary may take several weeks of effort. We provide an estimate of the schedule with the proposal.
