Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Below are some answers to frequently asked questions for our FHA, HUD, and VA manufactured home foundation engineering certifications and inspections. If you can not find you answer here, please also go to our Glossary of Terms and Definitions page.

Can you determine if my foundation is HUD compliant without visiting my home site?

Without a proper assessment, we generally can not tell you if your foundation is HUD compliant. All certifications require an inspection to determine compliance. An initial onsite inspection is required to determine if the foundation is HUD compliant, or if retrofits need to be done. Each foundation is unique due to geography, and local codes.

We are bound by a 405 page engineering manual, however at a minimum, several compliance issues that must be met; these are:

  1. A permanent skirting around the perimeter to protect the foundation from vermin and water intrusion.
  2. Proper piers to support the structure, including frost protection of those piers.
  3. Anchorage to resist loads caused by wind and earthquake forces.
