The Soil Testing process at Blakeslee Inc. is as follows:


Meet with the client (free of charge) to look at the project and obtain property information and discuss options with property owner.


Complete the soil test and meet with proper authorities to verify the findings of the Blakeslee Inc. team.


Meet again with client to explain in detail the findings of the soil test and the options for the property, go over cost of the system and the best timing for installation.

Our in-house soil test team is led by David Phillips and Shea Geffert.
