A mobile home inspection is treated just as a general home inspection. The only differences with a mobile home inspection is the location of the data tag and information on the data tag and inspecting the crawl space (if applicable).
When we perform a mobile home inspection we go through each room inspecting the windows, doors, ceiling/walls for crack and moisture stains, inspecting all electrical receptacles and ceiling light fixtures to include ceiling fans. When we inspect the bathrooms we inspect for any leaks, moisture stains, and water drop between plumbing fixtures. Additionally with the bathrooms we inspect for G.F.C.I. receptacles and the exhaust fan and the operation of all components in the bathroom.
In the kitchen we will inspect the appliances for operation. However, note that an appliance component can fail at anytime. We additionally inspect the sink area for leaks and odors. We inspect all H.V.A.C. components of the home.
If your mobile home has propane tanks on the exterior we will inspect these for any leaks. Lastly, we will inspect the roof and crawl space with the exterior of the home. When performing a mobile home inspection, it maybe a good idea to have a Radon test and or mold inspection performed as well. Upon scheduling your next mobile home inspection, please let us know if you would like these services added.
A lot of times we are asked if we can do a wind mitigation on a mobile home. The answer is generally no. The reason is because of no attic access to the framing members of the roof. However, we can provide a roof condition certification inspection at the same time and the fee for the roof condition certification inspection will be 50% discounted. See F.A.Q.'s page for pricing and other questions.And don't worry the location of your next modular or mobile home. We schedule all appointments in the same timely matter and give the maximum allowable time for your inspection.To learn more about mobile home inspections, click here.
