What Is Your Huntsville AL Home Built On?

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On August 30, 2007

It may not be the first thing you think about when you move into your new home, but the soil upon which your home is built can tell you a lot about the past and future of your property.


Visit the US Department of Agriculture’s Web Soil Survey site to access digital maps that display digital soil data that has been methodically collected.  Just type in your address and then explore almost anything you ever wanted to know about the soil upon which your home is sitting including chemical properties, erosion factors and likelihood, and its drainage class.


This is valuable information if you are considering building an addition to your existing home or purchasing a home in an area where you are unfamiliar with the terrain.
