Manufactured Home Site Preparation & Installation Portland ME

Installing a home is like stacking blocks. You can easily fix the last block on top but not the ones on the bottom. In fact the ones on the bottom can cause the whole stack to fall. You must be sure the proceeding work was done correctly before you can put on the next layer. So it is with installation and site preparation. Site preparation is the first building block, the rest of the stack can be no better than it is.

Site-Prep for Home Installation

To Site-Prep or Not To Site-Prep is not a Question

In the last two months I have been asked by at least five state organizations both private and governmental, "Can we get out of preparing the lot?" Some have wanted to make it the state law that the customer has to do that and then dealers don't have to mess with it. I guess that a person can do what ever he wants if he is willing to put up with the consequences but they asked so this is what I sent to them all. You might find it interesting as well.

Points to Consider When Addressing the Site-Prep. Situation

# 1 Do we need Site Prep? Yes
Do we care who does it? No
Must it be done correctly Yes

# 2 100 years ago Doctors never washed their hands till the operation was over. This was an accepted business practice and the custom for thousands of years. Can you imagine the discussions they must have had when they were making the transition to sterile procedures. Surely there were people who had been practicing medicine for 40 years who thought this was more trouble than it was worth. If the patient wanted to wash up before the operation then fine, but Doctors were not in the business of running a bath house. People by the droves were dying of infection for thousands of years before antiseptic procedures were used and it was just part of getting sick or injured. They didn't know any better then, but we sure do now and there has been a thousand fold decrease in patients dying.

Site preparation is as necessary as sterile procedures, even if some people don't know it yet. The house can be ruined without it.

# 3 Installing a home is like stacking blocks. You can easily fix the last block on top but not the ones on the bottom. In fact the ones on the bottom can cause the whole stack to fall. You must be sure the proceeding work was done correctly before you can put on the next layer. So it is with installation and site preparation. Site preparation is the first building block, the rest of the stack can be no better than it is.

You could hire someone to lay the first block and then you do the rest. If however the first block is laid in an obviously improper manner and you finish the stack then two people have made a mistake. The guy who laid the first block and the fellow who didn't care and laid the rest on top.

# 4 What if?

∗The customer was contracted to supply the blocks and he got some old used chipped and cracked cinder blocks. Would you use them or tell the customer they were not good enough? How is this different from site prep?

∗ You contract with the customer to do the site prep. for your own home you were setting up? Would you accept it if it was not adequate? Why not? In legal terms you are much safer in this situation because you would probably not sue yourself for a bad installation.
