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:
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
