I have built an outstanding reputation and name for myself by conducting business the way it was meant to be. Punctuality- I will not have a client waiting or wasting time due to our own issues or scheduling. Communication is key- constant contact whether by phone or in person to ensure we gather information to complete a job exactly how you envision and status updates so you will be aware of all things related to your project (completion dates, issues, scheduling, etc.). Quality workmanship- I hold a standard for quality that is becoming extinct, quality above all else, if the work is subpar to my standards or yours it will not be acceptable to leave it as such. We will complete your projects on time, the right way, and with quality/perfection as our main goal or we will not leave/complete it until that expectation is forfilled by our standards and your own. Affordable/realistic pricing- we understand how "tight" it can be these days and live the same as most people do, you will never recieve an inflated quote for services from us, we try to make good enough money to live not get rich, we have a concience and cannot allow ourselves to overcharge a customer even if industry standards are much higher. Some clients have had as high as $30,000 quotes we were able to complete for nearly $10,000. Other businesses would never do this or release this kind or information but we conduct ourselves in a manner you only hear about from your grandparents anymore. We do business the way it was meant, love what we do, support our families, and just want to be able to do that and give our skills to the world like it used to be when you could trust a company to do and be what they propose and not take advantage of you. Customer service and satisfaction is a priority and main focus that i refuse to deviate from, we will not leave trash or debris, there will not be cigarette butts all over your property, use of language or any actions that may be deemed or thought of as offensive or unproffesional. We have family also and would never treat your home or business any different than our own. We wouldn't want anything brought into our homes or families lives either and only hire like minded people we can entrust with keeping both our name reputable and your site free of things you would not allow there on a normal basis. We also do not tolerate theft or damage to a worksite, our employees are aware that any and all damages shall be reported/corrected and there is zero tolerance for theft of any kind, ensuring you a worry free atmosphere and project completion. We do our best to provide you with the most capable, knowledgeable, honest, proffesionals possible to make it possible to achieve the quality work and craftsmanship you deserve at a price point we can both sleep easy over. We have prided ourselves on becoming #1 but, we are still going to try harder to maintain that level and surpass any other comparable business model out there. There's nothing we can't do, just a few things we haven't done yet! Making something beautiful from nothing, or polishing a diamond from coal. The feeling you get when you see how much joy you bring to a clients heart when you complete their project or build thier dream in front of them and provide them with the easiest, most pleasurable service, and quality thats unmatched by any other, is nearly worth payment for the job. We love putting smiles on our clients faces and having them spread the word about us. That's what keeps us motivated and in this industry. Its a rough life to lead sometimes, long hours and days, holidays not at home, missed functions, the pay is good but we will never make millions at this, we do it cause we love working with our hands, using our minds, and building with our hearts. If we didn't need currency to support our families, the clients reactions to recieving the job they asked for with quality, proffesionalism, and results that are always greater than they percieved is nearly payment enough for us. We have a general love for what and how we do things, we all could go different directions with our career choice and maybe be richer, do alot less manual labor, or even retire early but we live to make peoples dreams a reality. We understand that a home being fixed or made into something a client wants is part of their dreams or what they had planned to accomplish in their lives. It's no different than a kid dreaming of playin baseball and making it to the majors, we have big hearts and love making people happy, this is our major league. We are just thankful we get to help make this a reality for them and are lucky enough to be able to support ourselves doing it. Businesses don't care enough to do that for people anymore it's a dying art form thats nearly extinct. We pride ourselves on this, we love our work, and have a high respect for people that do what we do and the clients we get to service, upholding that is a huge responsibility to us and our passion, thats why we love and continue to do this work.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I get a land survey?

A land survey provides you with a legal document that defines the boundaries of your property. To get a land survey, first you need to own and have access to your property deed. The next step is to hire a land surveyor. A land survey is provided by a professional who is properly trained and has typically been certified by the state in which they are providing services. Make sure the land surveyors you contact have the appropriate licensure from your state licensing board, and look for reviews by previous customers. You can call several land surveyors, provide them with information from your deed and receive estimates for total job cost. The surveyor you hire will research the deed plats for your property before coming out to the site to measure the land against existing information. The land surveyor will provide you with a report detailing your property lines, which will help you resolve any issues regarding property rights, new construction, easements or future property sales.

How do land surveyors charge?

If you want to clarify your property lines, are starting new construction, have a property dispute with neighbors, or want to identify the location of easements on your land, hiring a land surveyor will provide you with legal proof of the physical facts of your property. Land surveyors’ costs are often quoted by the foot, and can vary depending on terrain (hilly and rocky land is harder to survey than flat land), density of vegetation (thick trees make access as well as GPS difficult), the quality of the title information available, and more.

For example, a land surveyor’s cost could range from 50 cents to 70 cents per foot on average for surveying large boundary areas. This price can increase if you want your land surveyed to outline where a future fence will go, as it requires the land surveyor to stake out the property line at set intervals. This increases the amount of time and labor for the job. Land surveyors may also charge a minimum service fee. If you have a small parcel of land, the surveyor will need to recoup their business expenses for travel to the site, their specialized equipment, and their time and effort. For example, one land surveyor’s minimum cost is $650. This includes surveying a lot under one acre in a platted (mapped) subdivision. The surveyor will set property lines, mark property corners as needed with survey flags, perform limited courthouse research, and provide a certified, stamped survey drawing at the end.

How much is a survey on a house?

The national average land surveyor’s cost ranges from $450 to $630. You may need a survey on a house if you have a dispute with a neighboring property owner or there are questions raised during a property sale. A land survey can determine whether a building that currently exists on your land, or a house or building that you intend to construct on your land, is completely confined by your property lines. Area zoning laws also may require that you have a survey done prior to starting construction on a house to ensure you meet building requirements such as building a minimum distance from the street. You may also want a survey on a house that you intend to buy or sell, or that you currently inhabit, to determine if it is in a designated flood zone. This may provide you with legal support when applying for assistance from government bodies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Why do you need a property survey?

There are many reasons you might need to have your property surveyed. Trained land surveyors provide this professional service and are generally licensed through state regulating bodies, so when looking to hire someone make sure they are properly licensed. The national average cost for a land surveyor is $450-$630, although costs can range much higher depending on land size and other factors. Often land surveying costs are on quoted on a per-foot basis, such as 50 cents to 70 cents per foot. A land survey should be able to help you:

  • Define legally recognized property boundaries.
  • Resolve property line disputes.
  • Verify that an existing building, fence, or driveway is on your property or a property you plan to purchase.
  • Verify that a feature in question (creek, tree, etc.) is within the boundaries of your property or a property you plan to purchase.
  • Prepare for construction of a fence, pool, or building that is in close proximity to a neighbor’s property line.
  • Determine whether you are in a designated flood zone.

How long does it take to get a new land survey?

The time it takes to get a new land survey really depends on your property and the quality of the existing deeds. Before the physical survey even begins, land surveyors must research and review the deeds and plats for the property that you want measured as well as information about the properties that surround your land. Some of this information may be available online, and some may have to be accessed through the local courthouse. Making a trip to retrieve physical deeds can prolong the survey process by a few days or more. The quality of the deeds can also affect how long it takes land surveyors to complete their job. If any of the deeds have conflicting information, the land surveyor must do research to determine when property lines changed and find proof of their current legal status. Then, land surveyors visit the property they are working on and record physical evidence of property lines (iron stakes, fence lines, walls), and carefully compare this with data and records from the courthouse as part of the compilation of the survey drawing. The process may take one day or up to two weeks or more, depending on property size and access to the necessary information. More time-consuming research affects the overall cost for land surveying.

Land surveying is a means of measuring land and is commonly used in new construction planning, new fence planning, boundary or title disputes, insurance requirements, or when subdivision of land into plots. People commonly ask land surveyors to help mark property corners and boundary lines, set landmarks, and provide surveying maps and CAD drawings. Land to be surveyed can be any size, from under 5,000 square feet to five acres and beyond. A property’s zoning type may be residential, commercial, industrial or agricultural and can be set in an urban, rural or suburban area. Many factors affect the cost of land surveying such as topographic considerations, property title, previous surveys, jurisdiction, surveying methods used, vegetation and more.
