Set-up instructions are provided to the installer by the manufacturer and are approved by federal statutes. The guidelines must also comply with published requirements of state and local jurisdictions. All materials used to install the manufactured home must conform to their listing by the manufacturer and approved by state housing agencies.
A properly prepared site is essential to the installation quality and appearance of the home.
The land must be capable of sustaining the weight of the home and a cement foundation if one is poured. Homes Direct Inc. will provide the weight of the home and the distribution of the weight by each section of the home.
A cement foundation is the best for setting a manufactured home on. The local building code may require that footings be created. This would mean that the earth must be capable of easily installing footings.
The ground must be stable enough to accommodate the delivery equipment. While ground stability is also important for setting the manufactured home, it is essential that the delivery equipment has easy access to the site.
Property sometimes has deed restrictions, covenants or easements that determine what you can put on the property and where. The county office should be able to tell you if there are easements. If the county does not have this information, then ask who does.
It is preferred that your set-up company is also a site preparation contractor. One company performing both functions can result in a seamlessly coordinated effort rather than two separate entities working on the project.
