For anyone refinancing a manufactured home or taking out any kind of funding, VA loans or FHA loans for example, for a manufactured home, you will need to have a site inspection for professional engineering certifications of the permanent foundation systems to ensure the foundation meets FHA guidelines and building code.
Our engineer foundation certifications for manufactured homes cover the entire exterior of the building, and all of it’s “macro-measurements.” This includes height to eaves, height to apex of roof, width, and length of the home among several other items.
Photographs and measurements of all items inspected will be collected by your home inspector in order to compile the necessary information in order to hopefully obtain a favorable response as to whether your manufactured home’s foundation is structurally sound enough for the home to be considered for certification without the need for redesign. No matter what your situation is, a photo of the HUD tag will need to be collected to properly finish the certification inspection.Below you will find several pictures and images both of the work SPS Inspections has done for foundation certifications, and information about what a foundation certification entails!When it comes to providing our clients and fellow members of the community with manufactured home inspection services and permanent foundation certification, rest easy knowing that all certified inspectors at SPS will do everything in our power to provide you with the best results possible.*
