For more clarity to ensure that a proposed singular structure will be correctly positioned on a piece of property, LDP can provide simple house corner staking. This service is automatically included in the fee for site plans we complete, but if only house corner staking is needed, this work may be quoted independently.
Corner staking involves setting wooden stakes at the corners of a proposed structure, to show the builders exactly where on the property the building is to be built. For simpler structures, this may be accomplished by marking only the major corners, but for greater detail, the surveyor can place stakes at every turn in the foundation. Offset stakes may also be set to help locate corners whose previously set stakes were disturbed during the grading process.
House corner staking is advised in the following situations:
When building any structure on a piece of land, it’s imperative that the positioning of the corners be accurate to prevent any complications down the road. If the proposed location of a building is at all unclear, corner staking can ensure an accurate build.
