Mobile Home Inspections
Comprehensive and quick inspection reports with color photographs and detailed information.
Mobile home inspections and manufactured home inspections are important to have for a number of reasons. Even though Manufactured or Mobile Homes are built in a factory and then transported to the site where they’re set up or installed, they are more vulnerable to damage. Manufactured homes are elevated and lightweight when compared to site-built homes which makes them vulnerable to wind uplift especially if they are not equipped with skirting. Wind passing over the top of such homes can exacerbate the effect.
Vapor barriers help reduce the moisture that can seep up through the floor from the ground beneath. These often can become torn and/or detached.
Tie-downs are systems of heavy-duty straps and anchors designed to stabilize manufactured and mobile homes during high winds. Improperly installed or poorly maintained tie-downs could result in reduced capacity to resist sliding and overturning. Manufactured homes are more easily flipped or damaged during windstorms than site-built homes which is why they require tie-downs to remain stable.
Mobile homes receive the same inspection as a standard home inspection. The crawlspace needs to be inspected also for inspecting the vapor barrier, tie-downs, plumbing, electrical, support columns, etc. These items are very important to inspect because of the high level of moisture and the threat of hurricanes here in Florida. There is a $150 crawlspace fee added to the regular mobile home inspection. Order online as a regular home inspection but be sure to add the crawlspace fee also. Check with your insurance company to see if wind mitigation and a 4-point inspection are going to be needed. Many insurance companies require these. They are separate inspections and forms and can be done at the same time as the home inspection.
It is important that a home buyer asks for credentials when hiring a home inspector. Moreover, home inspectors should be ASHI Certified. Not only is AAA Advanced Home Inspections, Inc.
