When Do You Need a Manufactured Home Foundation & Addition Certification?

Anytime you are buying or assisting in purchasing an MFD home, a foundation/addition certification is essential in securing lending through HUD (housing and urban development). Without this certification, criminal penalties may apply.


What is a Manufactured Home Foundation & Addition Certification?

Manufactured homes are popular with buyers because of their affordable price and customizable features. If you want to secure lending for a manufactured home (MFD) through HUD (Housing and Urban Development), you will need a foundation/addition certification.

Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards are requirements mandated by the federal government for designing, constructing, and installing manufactured homes. These standards are designed to guarantee the quality, durability, safety, and affordability of MFD properties. Buyers and sellers must adhere to these stringent standards to be within the law and avoid legal ramifications.

Why Choose Us for Your Manufactured Home Foundation & Addition Certification?

We work proudly in collaboration with MFD Home Certifications LLC. This engineering firm specializes in certifying manufactured (MFD) homes to meet federal standards. Together, we offer manufactured home foundation/addition certifications across the central and western Upper Peninsula.

Owner of U.P. Home Inspection LLC and InterNACHI certified home inspector Rich Beasley received his certification through MFD Home Certifications LLC in January 2021 as a Registered Field Inspector of MFD home foundation and additions.

As we are located in the Upper Peninsula, we can help you avoid the extra expense of having a MFD-certified inspector travel in from out of the area.

What Is Included In Your Manufactured Home Foundation Inspection?

Wondering what we look for in your Manufactured Home Foundation & Addition Certification?

  • We ensure the manufactured home is permanently tied down
  • We check that structures attached to the MFD home will not drift off the piers or foundation
  • We verify that the drainage of the MFD property will not cause flooding in the basement or crawlspace

Here’s where we look for these benchmarks:

  • The Foundation
  • Room additions
  • Storage sheds that are attached to the structure
  • Porches
  • Pavers
  • Patios
  • Decks
  • Any other attachment on your home
