Manufactured Home Inspection
South Dakota Manufactured Home Inspection Information
Approved for 16 hours of South Dakota home inspector continuing education credits!
Delivery Method: Online / CD-ROM
Manufactured homes, which are often also referred to as mobile homes, are one of the fastest-growing home inspection markets in the United States. PHII's course is available both online and on CD-ROM and helps you learn at your own pace how to perform an inspection on a manufactured home. You will also learn how to write a professional home inspection report that properly addresses a manufactured home's components and systems.
PHII is proud to offer the only course that includes manufactured housing report forms.
Because mobile/manufactured housing is built to Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations, they must be inspected differently than traditional site-built housing. These different regulations affect the design and construction methods, which can differ significantly from traditionally-built homes.
Some important points specifically about manufactured housing covered in the course include:
- Non-removable chassis,
- Bracing and support systems,
- Four-wire electrical service common to all manufactured homes,
- Polybutylene supply piping,
- Wind/load/thermal zone ratings,
- Metal roofing,
- Under wrap,
- Potentially hazardous aluminum wiring.
And other useful topics and knowledge.
Some manufactured home producers use cheaper, lower quality materials and faster, less scrupulous methods - our course will help you distinguish mobile homes that use better construction materials and practices from those that use lower quality - but not necessarily substandard - materials. The course also covers the varied construction methods, some of the benefits and disadvantages of each, and how to recognize them.
Of particular note, the HUD Manufactured Home Construction & Safety Standards is covered in the course, and the relevant regulations and practices for electrical, gas, water and sewer hookups.
