More than 30 years serving our customers with professional integrity
Every town and city across the United States need land surveyors to accurately measure and map land plots for legal records, building plans, or agricultural knowledge.
Since its start in 1953, the city of Plantation has always used land surveys. For instance, during the construction of its town hall as well as the planning/construction of roads that connect to the key surrounding highways (I-95, I-595, I-75).
However, the need for surveys isn’t limited to city construction.
Whenever a homeowner looks to add an addition onto their home, they’ll need to hire a land surveyor to ensure that the addition does not breach the property boundaries. The state of Florida also has standards regarding the distance from property boundaries owners can build.
In addition, residents often call in a land survey if they are buying or selling a home to ensure that the boundary lines are up to date and accurate.
