Get A Mobile Home Inspection You Can Trust
Buying a mobile or manufactured home has unique challenges that most home buyers do not face. Many aspects of this type of home, such as the foundation, the structure, or the roof, are not typical of standard American stick-built homes. Most home inspectors are only vaguely familiar with how a mobile home works and how it’s built, so they’re also not very familiar with what problems to look for.
You need a professional, certified home inspector who understands how to inspect mobile and manufactured homes, and has your best interests at heart. We have been specifically trained in how to thoroughly inspect these types of homes. We’ll inspect the home according to professional standards, using only the best tools and software. After that, you’ll get a report of any defects that we found, and we’ll explain our findings in a way that’s easy to understand. We won’t overwhelm you with technical jargon.
Hire An Inspector Who Knows Manufactured Homes
Mobile and manufactured homes differ from most houses. Unlike most homes, mobile homes are designed to move over the road, towed behind or on a truck. Manufactured homes arrive at their location in large pieces, and are assembled on-site. This makes their construction, utilities and systems somewhat different than standard homes. Items like the foundation, roof, electrical and plumbing systems, are different enough from standard residential systems to require special training to inspect them.
We are always available to answer any questions about our findings, or about your mobile/manufactured home in general. We mean it when we say you can contact us at any time, even long after your inspection. We’re serious about giving you the best information and experience for your money!
What Is Included in a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a visual, non-invasive examination of a home. Though there are parts of the house that cannot be checked, like plumbing and wiring in walls, we use state-of-the-art equipment and software to see and document as much as possible.
All of our inspections follow this basic format, using our 101-point checklist. We follow the InterNACHI Standards of Practice to give you the highest quality inspection.
Areas We Inspect:
Roof-coverings, gutters and downspouts, flashing, vents, chimney; other visible roof components.
Wall coverings, soffits, windows, doors, walkways & driveways, porches, railings, grounds; other visible components.
The foundation, basement, crawlspace, and visible structural components.
Doors, windows; floors, walls, ceilings; steps, railings, other visible components.

Insulation and ventilation in attics, crawlspaces & foundation; exhaust systems.
Lintels; dampers, cleanouts, other accessible and visible parts of the fireplaces and chimneys.

Thermostat; ventilation fans; interior and exterior heating and cooling systems; other visible components.
What is Not Included in a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is not a complete technical inspection- it is a general visual assessment. A home inspection will not reveal every problem that exists, but only the defects able to be observed on the day of the inspection. A home inspection cannot predict any future conditions.
Some of the things that are not included in a home inspection are:
You Will Get a Detailed Inspection Report
After the inspection, we’ll give you an on-site summary of what we inspected and defects that we found. After that, we’ll send you a detailed digital report with high-resolution pictures, video, and clearly written explanations of what is wrong and why it’s a problem.
You’ll probably think of other things to ask after the inspection, so please contact us anytime if you have questions. When you’re buying, time is short when you’ve made an offer, and we want to be helpful to you in this often emotional and overwhelming experience.
