Hiring Contractors for Manufactured Homes

Hiring Contractor For Manufactured Home Is Different

You live in a manufactured home there are distinct differences between your home and a site built home built to the Florida Code. Your home was built to HUD Code. Thus when you are hiring a contractor to work on your home you want a contractor that knows manufactured homes. One that recognizes that many “parts” are different than site built. You want a contractor that knows where to buy or order the specialized parts for your home.

·         Who will do the actual work?

·         Provide me with a detailed written estimate of the project. Make sure that the contractor breaks out the materials and labor. This gives you the opportunity to check prices on material for yourself. Tell the contractor he is not the only bidder. Keep in mind that the lowest bid is not always the best.

·         What are you working hours? What time will you begin in the morning and end?

·         How long will it take for you to complete my project? Ask how they will handle delays. Make them give you telephone, cell phone, pager numbers and address of their business (not a PO Box number).

·         Be sure th...
