The foundation is exactly that – the foundation of your home. Placement of support piers is very important to distribute the weight correctly and level the home. Footers, runners and slabs are not just nice, flat places to put the pier blocks on. They redistribute the weight of the home and determine the load bearing capacity of the soil, the first step toward a solid foundation. They must be installed in such a manner so as to provide a stable environment for your home. Improper placement leads to cracked sheet rock, doors that do not operate properly and improper drainage of waste water. The manufacturer’s setup manual MUST be consulted by qualified setup crews for this critical information.
One often hears that a “foundation” is required by a certain lender or a governmental agency. Generally, the true meaning of this type of “foundation” is a block or brick perimeter skirting instead of fabricated skirting for the home. In other words, concrete block skirting. It would be wise, if someone mentions that a certain type of foundation is required, to ask exactly what is meant by their definition of “foundation”.
Anchoring the manufactured home is done to help secure the home on its permanent foundation. Several types are used, depending on what HUD building codes and the manufacturer’s recommendations require.
