What type of foundation do Manufactured Homes have?

Most often manufactured houses are placed on a cement slab or frost pier systems, and less frequently, on a basement or crawl space.

Typical manufactured home support systems consist of anchoring equipment such as ties, diagonal ties, straps, cables, turnbuckles, chains, and other approved components, including tensioning devices that are used to secure a manufactured home to their foundation system.

When properly designed and installed, these anchoring systems will help resist the uplift, overturning, and lateral forces on the manufactured home, and on its support and foundation system.

The following diagram, Pier and Ground Anchor Support Systems, shows the type of foundation support system that we, at Alexandria Homes, Inc., most typically use when setting and installing our manufactured homes.
