Looking to buy a house near quarry on rt 309

Asked by nw, North Wales, PA Tue Aug 7, 2012

We are looking at couple of houses which are about half a mile to the quarry on route 309 in North Wales. I have concerns about the noise, dust, shaking, structural damages to the house caused by the blasts at the quarry. Does anyone know of any complaints who live close to the quarry? Should we stay away from these properties, what are your thoughts? would it affect the resale value of the house?

Thanks in advance

I have shown many homes right off of Hartman Road over the years and have seen some sever cracking in the basement foundations in the neighborhood adjacent to the Quarry. A half a mile away from where they blast, I haven't seen any unusual problems or any trouble getting my listings sold due to any noise or shaking. I hope that helps. Fell free to call me with any questions
