Is your manufactured home unlevel?



Is your manufactured home unlevel?
Mon 08/07/06 09:01:08 am
by Mark Bower

"I have a door that sticks, does that mean my home has become unlevel?" The answer is probably YES, but not always.

Normally, when a home becomes unlevel, you'll be able to find more than one tell-tale sign. For instance, more than one door will stick or swing, or a window won't shut or latch properly. However, keep in mind that you may need to just tighten the screws on your door hinges, or check to see if the hinges are bent.

Other signs that your home may be unlevel include:

  • water on your floors or countertops run to one side
  • cracks are developing in your ceiling or walls
  • skirting has buckled (although this may be caused by ground heave)
  • floor squeaks
  • anchor straps have become loose
  • So what causes your home to become unlevel? The number one reason manufactured homes become unlevel is excess moisture underneath the home. The moisture makes the ground soft causing the blocks or piers holding up the home to sink.

    Tipping blocks or loose anchor straps are signs that your home may need releveling.

    The number two reason your home becomes unlevel is improper blocking when the home was first set-up. By improper blocking I mean that you either have no solid support underneath the blocks, that the shims and blocks being used aren't made of concrete or hardwood so they compress, that you have too few blocks or that the blocks are not appropriately placed along the frame. Of course, there's always the possibility that the home itself was not properly leveled when it was originally set-up.

    "But," you say, "My home is sitting on concrete footings, so why is it sinking?" In most cases, manufactured homes properly set-up on concrete footings will not need releveling for many years. However, footings that do not reach the frostline are subject to heaving in cold climates. Footings that are undersized may not be able to handle the weight of the house and sink. Finally, if the ground underneath of your home is a lake bed, that will no doubt soften the ground around your footings causing them to shift or sink.

    If you decided that your home needs
    releveling, this kit will show you how.
    More info.
    Order here.

    Once you've determined that your house is out of level, you should have it releveled as soon as possible. An unlevel home may be putting undue stress on certain areas of your house, which in the long run could cause damage.

    Even If your not inclined to do the releveling yourself, then use these instructions and the enclosed waterline level to determine whether or not your home is out of level. Or you can simply use this information to become a better-informed consumer and give yourself the upper hand when it comes to hiring a contractor to do the job. order our releveling kit which contains instructions and a waterline level.

Manufactured Homes – the Possibility to Own an Affordable and Modern Place



Manufactured Homes – the Possibility to Own an Affordable and Modern Place

Houses manufactured in factories are not only a living option for those that have lower incomes. The new developments in the industry have allowed improvements in the size, safety and comfort of manufacturers’ homes. Even the skeptic insurance and loan services have rethought their programs concerning the use of mobile homes as collateral for loans.

Initially, houses manufactured in factories were the cheap alternative to a site-built residence. Their practical use and low price were the main reasons for their popularity. People that led a dynamic life that involved a lot of traveling and moving around saw the manufacturers’ homes as the right choice. The first designs for these homes were simple, which made their transportation a lot easier.

As time passed, the projects for these homes manufactured industrially became more complex and their transportation became more complicated. Therefore, nowadays, manufacturers’ homes will undergo a lot less moving around than in the past. Their only major problem has always been their resistance to bad weather. Since these types of homes are more popular in the United Kingdom and especially in the United States of America.

While no structure truly holds the house on the ground, the latest improvements in this area consist in a special system that anchors these manufacturers’ homes to the ground and significantly reduces the damages caused by bad weather. It is a good idea to invest in such a home.

The costs are lower and you have all the comfort that you might want. Space is no problem because you can choose from various types of such houses manufactured in special factories. These homes are assembled once they arrive at the place you have chosen and most probably rented. Certain institutions set the rules and the standards for these constructions. There are certain limitations when it comes to the number of such houses in a certain area, the size of the assembly, the foundation etc.

The improvements in the manufacturers’ homes have led to a wider acceptance of these homes. The latest techniques used in the building process makes it difficult to tell them apart from site-built homes. The quality standard has increased considerably and it is a lot easier now to please customers. Houses manufactured industrially have represented an important segment on the real-estate market and now it is constantly growing, mostly because the quality of the services is a lot higher and the offers are visibly improving.

These manufacturers’ houses are not just walls put together; the process is more than that and if you researched the developments in this field, you would agree that the differences are easy to perceive The way things are moving, it would be no surprise if people preferred to buy houses manufactured industrially instead of loaning money to start a ...

Private property placement of manufactured homes



Private property placement of manufactured homes

Michigan MH Association

OKEMOS, Mich. —We’ve all dreamt of owning our own home one day, whether it’s a two-story colonial in a quiet, country setting or a spacious ranch near the big city. For many of us, the thought of high construction and property expenses puts an end to the dream. Manufactured and modular homes turn dreams into reality for thousands of Americans. Like site-built homes, manufactured homes can be placed almost anywhere—beautiful, waterfront property, nestled deep in the woods, amid acres of farmland or in a cozy neighborhood setting. According to the U.S. Census in 2004, 69 percent of manufactured homes were placed on private property.

Even with the expense of purchasing property, manufactured homes cost 10 to 35 percent less. Since the homes are built in a factory, there aren’t any weather-damaged materials to replace, and purchasing materials for several homes at once and using them as needed, greatly reduces the price of the home.

When looking for property, keep in mind, you will need to check with your local municipality building authorities to determine the local zoning and appearance codes. An acceptable requirement of local government may be that the manufactured home must compare favorably with other housing in the area (even in rural areas). Other requirements may include the manufactured homes be attached to a permanent foundation, the homes provide adequate living space based on square footage, or making sure modifications made on site are constructed to meet the state building code. Your retailer or real estate broker will assist you in the process of purchasing property and contacting your local municipal authorities.
