Extend the Life of Your Home With a Permanent Foundation
The unsung hero of any home is its foundation. Unfortunately, many manufactured homes are placed right on the ground, which can cause significant problems for homeowners over time. Environmental factors can impact the quality and stability of the soil beneath a home, making it susceptible to settling, cracking, and pests.
One of the best ways to extend the life of a manufactured home is to place it on a concrete foundation. With advancements in technology, there has never been a better time to have a permanent concrete foundation installed for your mobile home. We are even able to insulate your foundation if you live in certain climates.

Frequently Asked Questions About Manufactured Home Foundations
There are many options to choose from when considering which type of manufactured home foundation is best for your home. Are you looking for extra square footage? What kind of terrain does your home sit on? What is your budget?

The quickest and least expensive foundation option for your home is the piered foundation system, which involves placing heavy anchors into the ground and attaching them securely to the beams beneath your home.
While a pier foundation system is a great option, it does come with some drawbacks. Homes placed on piered foundations may need re-leveling more often than homes on slabs or other types of foundations.
Another cost effective option is a concrete slab foundation, which is also inexpensive and will provide great support for your home's entire base.

FHA Certified Foundations
When financing a new home, many lenders and the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) consider the value of the home and how that value may change in the years to come. Manufactured homes that sit directly on the ground tend to depreciate over time and, in the lender's point of view, may not be a great investment.
On the other hand, manufactured homes that sit on permanent foundations retain and can even appreciate their value as time goes by, given the added safety and stability.
