Nearly everyone has seen a land surveyor hard at work. You know, those people in the bright yellow vest and white helmet at the helm of some very cool-looking equipment? Even though many have seen a land surveyor in action, not many people in Utah County can describe what it is a land surveyor does.
At Diamond Land Surveying in Utah County, land surveying is our area of expertise, and understanding when you need a land survey is part of our mission. Here are a few things you may not know about land surveying in Utah County and the services Diamond Land Surveying has to offer.
It’s All About Science
At Diamond Land Surveying, data is the land surveyor’s best friend. The history of a property, as well as science and math, are at the heart of the land surveying profession.
Our expert land surveyors take a property’s existing markers and mesh them together with historical data to see how it’s changed over time as they make their own measurements. What you have at the end is a properly done survey that reflects the mission to protect the integrity of the public record.
We use data gathered through our out rigorous scientific processes to complete land surveys such as:
- ALTA surveys
- Easement drafting
- Boundary surveys
- Subdivision surveys
- Construction staking
- Lot consolidation plat
- 3D laser scanning
- Topography surveys
- UAV aerial surveys
- BLM surveys
In Utah County, it’s hard to find another surveying company with the expertise and know-how to take care of any commercial, residential, or construction survey you may need.
So Much More Than GPS
While it cannot be argued that technology has made life easier, especially in the world of land surveying, that doesn’t mean that drawing property lines is a DIY endeavor. The GPS used by the average consumer still has an error of margin between 15 and 20 feet.
The land surveyors at Diamond Land Surveying use their skill and equipment to draw boundaries accurate within centimeters. And in the world of land surveying, you better believe that every centimeter makes a difference.
Saving Money in the Long Run
If you have a construction project on your property that you’re thinking about, you may feel the impulse to avoid paying for a land survey before you start building just to save a little time and money. Just be cautioned that this is likely to cost you in the end.
For example, say you want to build a detached garage in your backyard but you skip your land survey before breaking ground. In the end, you may have a beautiful, detached garage but only come to find out later that it’s actually partially on your neighbor’s property. That can cause major legal issues for you – and it’s something that can easily be avoided with a proper land survey.
