Manufactured Home Foundations

Criterium-Cincinnati Engineers provides foundation designs and inspections for dealers, lenders, and buyers of manufactured and mobile housing. Experience, organization, and economy of scale allow us to offer the following services at very reasonable cost:

H.U.D. Permanent Foundation designs

We prepare foundation designs for new manufactured homes. Certain public housing and low interest lending programs administered by agencies such as F.H.A. specify foundations that meet the guidelines in HUD Handbook 007487 (formerly 4930.3.) and HUD Directive 4145.1. The requirements are more stringent than the Ohio regulations for manufactured housing. Those designs must be signed and sealed by a Professional Engineer.

H.U.D. Permanent Foundation Inspections

When a manufactured building is already set up, we inspect its foundation at the site. Foundations that meet HUD prescriptive requirements are certified. Otherwise, we provide specific recommendations for meeting the specifications.

Freddie Mac Foundation Inspections

We provide the inspections and certifications needed to qualify new and existing manufactured homes for low interest Freddie Mac loan programs.
