Manufactured Home Permanent Foundation Inspections
If you are in the process of purchasing or refinancing a manufactured home, your bank or lender may require a professional engineer to certify that the home meets the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) guidelines for a proper permanent foundation.
Stonewall Structural Engineering is equipped to handle HUD inspections to verify that your structure meets the guidelines outlined in the “Permanent Foundations Guide for Manufactured Housing” or PFGMH handbook. Our expert team performs a multi-point inspection of the home's foundation system, and our reports are suitable for certifying that a home’s foundation system meets the requirements of VA, FHA, USDA, and any other federally-underwritten loans.
What is a HUD manufactured home inspection?
When people are looking for housing that is both affordable and in good condition, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is there to ensure that manufactured home foundations are of lasting quality.
Our inspectors, when visiting a property, will look for items including the following:
- Proper drainage and roof rainwater runoff management systems
- Adequate chassis anchorage
- Independent support of adjacent decks and porches
