Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Below are some answers to frequently asked questions for our FHA, HUD, and VA manufactured home foundation engineering certifications and inspections. If you can not find you answer here, please also go to our Glossary of Terms and Definitions page.

If my foundation was installed according to my local building department's codes doesn't that mean that it meets HUD standards as a permanent foundation?

The short answer is maybe. We have to follow the most stringent of the local code or the national HUD standard. Sometimes local codes are more stringent but not always. More times than not, the HUD national standard is the more stringent code to follow. So, your home may have been installed to local codes, but may not have been installed to the requirements outlined in the HUD Permanent Foundations Guide for Manufactured Homes, dated 1996. If this is the case, a retrofit may need to be performed to bring it up to the HUD national standards. During our engineering review we will determine if your foundation meets the definition of a permanent foundation.      ^ top
