manufactured homes

So I just got a call for a home inspection and a wind mitigation on a manufactured home. I have taken the classes for all of this but have never performed a home inspection on a manufactured home which I feel confident on doing but I’m not sure on how to do a wind mitigation on one. Any tips are welcome.

Did you take these free courses:


where you located Florida I presume?

Yes in florida and yes on the courses

I feel confident doing the home inspection but as far as the wind mitigation I was wondering if manufactured homes even have a way to get in an attic to see some kind of Deck attachment or roof to wall attachment or how to answer any of the other questions on a wind mitigation form

In Florida…
For me that would be a strange request.
I may be incorrect , but an engineers report is what they need.
Anchors and straps it about all you can do .
And without and engineer’s report ,Your report isn’t worth a dime.

Kenneth, I’m moving this thread to the Florida forum now for you.

Only discounts available are burglar and or fire alarms, approved park, and ANSI credit below with Citizens:

  • **Mobile Home Construction Credit (ANSI/ASCE) **

**1. **Eligibility
Florida law requires a discount, credit, or other rate differential for Mobile Homes constructed to comply with American Society of Civil Engineers Standard ANSI/ASCE 7-88, adopted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on July 13, 1994.
**2. **Documentation Requirements for Credit
**a. **Built On Or After January 1, 1995
No documentation is required if the Mobile Home was built on or after January 1, 1995.
**b. **Built Prior To January 1, 1995
**i. **Submit legible photo of the “Data Plate” showing compliance with ANSI/ASCE 7-88 standards, OR
**ii. **Submit documentation from manufacturer stating that the Mobile Home was built in compliance with ANSI/ASCE 7-88 standards, OR
**iii. **Submit statement from a licensed Florida Mobile Home Installer confirming that the Mobile Home was built in compliance with ANSI/ASCE 7-88 standards.

Wind mitigations are not performed on manufactured or mobile homes. Four Points are usually needed though.

The tie down inspection just to verify whether they were there and in what condition is all I’ve ever been asked to do.
