Loans for Manufactured Homes Made Easy - Pillar To Post - The Home of Home Inspection


Introducing Foundation Inspections for Manufactured Homes from Pillar To Post® and Hayman Residential Engineering Services

If you've ever been involved in securing an FHA backed loan on a manufactured home, you know what a hassle it can be to get the engineer's certification on the foundation necessary to close the deal. Finding a certified professional engineer who is willing, able, and familiar enough with government regulations to certify the foundation of a manufactured home - let alone someone who will provide the certification in a timely manner and at a reasonable price - can be a huge challenge.

Fortunately, there is now a way to simplify the certification process and get to closing with fewer delays and less frustration.


Hayman Residential Engineering Services, Inc. - Engineering Expertise for the Manufactured Housing Industry

Pillar To Post, the industry leader in home inspection services, and Hayman Residential Engineering Services (HRES), a nationwide engineering firm specializing in manufactured homes, are pleased to announce a strategic alliance. This new alliance will allow lenders, Realtors, and home owners from coast-to-coast to quickly and easily obtain foundation certifications on manufactured homes from a certified professional.

By working together, HRES and Pillar To Post have streamlined the certification process. Rather than wait up to 3 or 4 weeks for an opening in a local engineer's schedule, within two business days of receiving your call, a Pillar To Post home inspector will visit the property to collect the necessary measurements and photographs. This data will be passed along to HRES, where a dedicated team of professional engineers with special expertise in this area will either provide the certificate, or determine that the foundation does not meet FHA/VA criteria. The turnaround time on the certification is just 3-5 business days with a 24-hour RUSH service available.


As an added value, if the home does not meet the criteria for certification, HRES can recommend repair contractors who are FHA certified to make the necessary repairs. Neither HRES nor Pillar To Post make any commission in any form from these contractors. This is purely provided as a service.
