Our manufactured home foundation certifications cover the entire exterior of the building, and all of it's "macro-measurements." This includes height to eaves, height to apex of roof, width, and length of the home among several other items.
Photographs and measurements of all items inspected will be collected by your manufactured foundation certification inspector in order to compile the necessary information in order to hopefully obtain a favorable response as to whether your manufactured home's foundation is structurally sound enough for the home to be considered for certification without the need for redesign. No matter what your situation is, a photo of the HUD tag will need to collected to properly finish the certification inspection. For Information on where to find your manufactured home HUD tag, Clayton Homes has excellent information:
The HUD tag (certification label) is located on the back right corner of the outside of the home (the “tongue” of the home or corner of the frame). The same information should also be found on the data plate in the master bedroom closet or in the cabinets under the kitchen sink. The data plate is a paper label with information about your home including the wind zone to which it was built and what home building facility built your home." - (https://www.claytonhomes.com/studio/hud-certification-for-manufactured-home/ , accessed 12/17/2019)
After the inspector has come out to your manufactured home to collect the necessary information to complete your manufactured foundation certification, and collected all the pictures and measurements he/she requires for completion of the foundation certification report, which the structural engineering firm will be using, to analyze the home and its foundation. In order to make a determination as to the structural soundness of your foundation and whether it can be certified without redesign services and work or not will be decided in large part by what information is contained within the report that your home inspector compiled. This is why SPS Inspections takes great care in making sure all the pertinent and correct information was acquired, and everything needed to give our clients the best shot at having their foundation certified without the need for redesign!
