Property Boundary Surveys
From small residential house lots, to several hundred acre farms and wood lots, we have the experience and equipment to accurately and efficiently complete your survey. A complete boundary survey includes a research of public records for deeds and maps, a field survey to locate existing boundary evidence, analytical computations to determine boundary line location, detailed mapping, parcel descriptions, and placement of property markers. Contact us to discuss your specific survey needs.
Property Line Stake-Out
When installing a new shed or fence, it may be beneficial to first have the property corners and property lines marked out. We provide quick turn-around to our clients to keep their projects on schedule.
Subdivision and Land Development
A subdivision can be anything from dividing off a parcel of land to give to a family member to dividing a large acreage parcel into several lots to be sold. We can assist you through the various steps of the process: initial planning, lot sizing, local regulations, applications, planning and zoning board meetings.
FEMA Elevation Certificates & Letters of Map Amendment (LOMA)
If your house or commercial structure is in a FEMA flood zone, you may need an Elevation Certificate (EC). We are experienced providing ECs and LOMAs. As a FEMA approved eLOMA Professional, we can get a quick determination on your LOMA application. If you wish to learn more about ECs, flood insurance rate maps, LOMAs, and more, please click here to download our informational PDF.

How much will my survey cost?
The cost to perform a boundary survey is dependent upon the time it takes to perform all of the tasks required to complete the survey. The complexity of the survey can be effected by the clarity of the deed descriptions, amount of physical evidence found in the field, accessibility to the property, the terrain and the size and shape of the parcel being surveyed.
