Retrofit Procedures

We represent a variety of manufacturers and proprietary systems , so the homeowner and borrower has the option of selecting the best system for the soils condition, the wind, seismic or frost zone of the home. All systems are state-approved but only an engineer can determine in a site-specific determination if the home meets HUD guidelines. There are NO blanket FHA-approvals!

Generally, the process is as follows:

  1. Inspection:
    The home site and understructure are evaluated to determine the most cost effective system for the home and the environmental conditions. Since the retrofit permanent foundation system is designed to work in conjunction with the existing pier and pad system, the structural integrity of the current components is also of overriding concern.
  2. Formal Bid:
    If the foundation does not meet state of HUD guidelines, we will provide you with a bid. ¬† Bids outline all expected costs including permits, system installation, ¬†recordation of applicable documents, cost of Engineer’s Certificate, etc.
  3. Sign Contract:
    Once a contract has been signed and we are assured the underwriter has all the required information, we are happy to schedule an installation.
  4. Job completion:
    Most installations can be completed in 1 working day. Some individual cases may take slightly longer depending on the scope of the job. This will be stipulated up-front and will entail no hidden costs.
  5. Billing:
    We can be paid out of Escrow! Once the document has been recorded we will fax, or send the recorded document and a copy of our invoice to the billing party.
