Mobile Home Leveling
Mobile homes have become one of the preferred ways to live for many Americans. The convenience of a smaller home comes with many benefits, such as a level living space with no stairs. This does not mean that mobile homes do not suffer some of the same issues that a standard home would face. Structural issues, such as deterioration, shifting, or aging of your home’s foundation can cause severe damage and should be remedied as soon as it is detected.
How to identify issues with your mobile home’s foundation
Mobile homes may differ vastly from a standard home, though structural issues caused by issues with its foundation will present themselves similarly to a traditional home. Cracks in the flooring, doors, and windows getting stuck, the home becoming unlevel, misshapen walls, crumbling or cracked concrete in the foundation, and much more can be signs that your mobile home’s foundation requires repairs. If you notice any of these issues, you should call us immediately (using the number at the top of this page), so that we can conduct a free foundation inspection and provide you with a comprehensive plan of action for the repair of your foundation.
Why have your mobile home regularly inspected?
Mobile homes are commonly built upon pier and beam foundations. These foundations are exceptionally sturdy and should provide incredible support to your home for years. That said, it can still be affected by factors such as shifting soil. For this reason, we advise that you have inspections conducted every three to five years to ensure that any potential issues are detected and addressed expediently. If issues with the foundation of your home are left unattended, they can create costly damage that, at worst, could necessitate the complete replacement of your home. We provide free inspections to assist in not only identifying issues early but also saving you money!
How we level your mobile home
Once we have conducted an inspection of your mobile home and drafted a plan of action, we will implement one of many of our foundation repair techniques. Depending on how what kind of foundation your mobile home possesses, our plan of action may change. If you have a pier and beam, we install pilings underneath the existing piers to provide extra support using rods or braces to reinforce damaged support stations. We can also stabilize the soil underneath the foundation using a chemical mixture. If your home is placed on concrete blocks, we will advise you on the best route forward, though this will likely involve the installation of piers to provide long-lasting, adequate support.
