Down to Earth Construction Services Providing Thorough And Reliable Septic Inspections

Down to Earth Construction Services have certified septic inspectors with the most up to date equipment who are ready to provide our customers with thorough, reliable septic inspections. If your property is not on town sewer it is essential that your septic system is working correctly to ensure that your waste is being processed correctly. Also when you are selling a property Title 5 requires a septic inspection to have been done within the last two years. Unless you have a new home or bought your property in the last two years this will usually mean that you will need to have a septic inspection carried out before Title to the property can be transferred. The benefit is that once you have had the inspection done it is good for two years so you can have the inspection carried out at the start of your selling process so once it is completed that is a selling point and wont cause delays later on. So it is always advisable to have your septic inspection done as soon as you decide you are selling your property. Other benefits of an inspection include:

 

  • Keeping you informed of the status of your septic system. Your system must be maintained to ensure it continues to operate correctly. The inspection will notify you if it is time to have your septic pumped or for any other maintenance

 

  • An Inspection will identify any repairs that need to be done to your system. Spotting small septic problems can result in a quick, easy and inexpensive repair in contrast to a large, messy and expensive repair if a problem is left to get more extensive.

 

  • If you are selling your property it provides a home buyer with a detailed report of the location and condition of your septic system components at the time of the inspection.The data collected assists the home buyer with their purchasing decision.

 

Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Wayland, Marlborough, Bolton, Clinton, Upton and Oxford MA. If you live in Massachusetts and you have a septic system servicing your property and need a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact us at our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

We are doing a PERC (percolation) test today for a customer in Fairhaven MA. A perc test, or percolation test, is a soil test that is performed before installing a septic system tank. The perc test is extremely important because it measures the level of liquid absorption of the soil where the proposed septic tank will be located. It determines how quickly the material from the septic system will be absorbed into the soil. We have recently also provided  septic engineering services to clients in Clinton, Fall River, Oxford and Wayland MA. If you would be interested in these services or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Experts in Septic Design, Installation and Inspection

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services had a septic system installation in Rochester, MA starting yesterday.  Our client  initially needed a septic design for a septic system because they needed to replace a failing cesspool on their property.  We have the experience and knowledge to provide a septic design that was tailored to their individual needs and those of their property. Yesterday we started the septic system installation because our client chose to continue to use our services. They are confident in our professionalism and ability to install their system quickly and correctly with minimum disruption.  We have the equipment and operators for the excavation,  groundworks and total installation without needing to use a subcontractor so we can ensure that the installation is done to our exacting standards. We will also provide regular septic system services following the installation. We have recent experience with septic system installations in Oxford, Uxbridge, Marlborough, and Mattapoisett, MA.  If you need a septic system installation or if you have any questions please do contact us.

Down to Earth Construction Services also have septic inspections scheduled today in Berkley, Dighton, Norton, Freetown, Fall River, Fairhaven, Acushnet, and Mattapoisett, MA.  Most of the septic inspections that we do are for properties which are being sold.  However, we also have an inspection today for a property which has had an addition which included two bedrooms.  As specified by The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs of Massachusetts:

“A system must be inspected upon any change of use or increase in design flow, BUT ONLY IF the change or expansion also requires a building permit or occupancy permit from the local building inspector. Examples include adding a bedroom to a house, adding seats to a restaurant, or changing the type of business operating at a commercial location. Check with the Building Department and/or Board of Health to find out if your situation requires a building or occupancy permit which will trigger a system inspection.

 

Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system, to ensure that construction will not be located on top of any system components or on the reserve area. If official records are available to determine the location of the system components, this requirement may be waived. Check with your local Board of Health.

Title 5 Inspections with Down to Earth Construction

Down to EarthDown to Earth Construction Services has Title 5 Septic Inspection appointments today in Wayland, Marlborough, Berlin, Clinton, Southborough, and Oxford, MA.  When you are selling a property with a septic system, it is likely to need a septic inspection.  It is usually a good idea to have this inspection done early in your sale process because you will not want it to create delays later on.  Inspections required in connection with a property transfer generally are good for two years.  If a property is sold more than once in the two-year period, the single inspection is valid for all transfers.  When a system is pumped on an annual basis and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for three years.  Therefore, if you have your inspection done early it will still be valid even if your sale takes some time.  If you need to schedule a Title 5 Septic Inspection or if you have any questions please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
