Grading Contractor Northern Virginia

Grading Contractor Northern Virginia is Fairfax Contractor. Many homes built in Northern Virginia, were poorly graded by the contractors that built these homes. Today  if a contractor builds a new home it will require the seal by a land surveyor, architect, or licensed civil engineer licensed in  Virginia, before a building permit will be issued. Your new home may have been graded properly, but with the back filled, dirt may have settled, leaving the grading plan ineffective. When soil settles around the foundation, water will be then pushed backed and can lead to water infiltration into your home. Simple solution for this problem, is simply add more soil, and create a grade that will move the water away from your home. One of the biggest problems, with a poorly graded lot in your Northern Virginia home, is erosion, and the ability to grow grass. The professionals at Fairfax Contractor have a variety of methods to re-grade your lot, so that soil erosion, the inability to grow grass, and water filtration into your basement  can be a thing of the past.

What Should I Consider When Re-grading My Northern Virginia Property

If you plan on re-grading your existing Northern Virginia homes a lot, there are some things to consider. If your grading plan will encompass more than 2500 ft.² your contractor will need to get a special permit to do this type of major grading. Included in this plan, we will need to show how we will place settlement, and erosion control while we perform a complete makeover of your lot’s topography. Most often are grading projects fall below the threshold of 2500 ft.² of land distribution. There is no permit required in Virginia to re-create small parts of the property for ground water control. The only exception to this rule is that if your property lies on a stream, or area where the watershed would ultimately drain into the Chesapeake Bay. The Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act is something that you must, and your contractor thoroughly understand. If your property is to graded and you are near a watershed that leads directly into the Chesapeake Bay, there are many laws, and regulations that need to be followed. Also before any re-creating of your property is performed Fairfax Contractor will contact Miss utilities of Virginia, do have a locator mark any utilities, before construction can commence.
