Small Mobile home Repairs

When buying or selling a mobile home in California, you will want to get a title 25 , health and safety inspection first! Upon getting your inspection report, there will most likely be a few small mobile home repairs that need to be completed before you move in.

As a Title 25, health and safety inspector, I have seen small mobile home repairs that are common on almost all mobile home, new or old. One of the most common mobile home repairs costs about $250 to fix, its a Trap leak under the mobile home or water supply line leak. Most homeowners dont even know they have a leak, because they rarely, if ever, crawl under their home. See a few pics below of common trap leaks.

Another common, small repair I see on mobile homes is water heater needs earthquake strapping. This is required in Title 25 of the California code of regulations and generally costs around $90 with labor and materials. I would say 90% of homes that I see dont have the water strapped properly or strapped at all for that matter. This is a preventative repair that will protect your home in case of an earthquake. See photos of mobile home water heater strapping below.

The third most common small repair that I see on mobile homes is roof vents that are rusted and need to be painted. Also see alot of missing shingles on the roof. These repairs are generally easy fixes and can cost between $100 and $250 to fix. See a few photos below of small roofing repairs on mobile homes that are required to fix as part of health and safety repairs.

Mobile Home Repairs

Welcome to RepairMobileHomes.com. We are a licensed contractor that specializes in mobile home repairs. For over 30 years we have been working with mobile home owners to remodel and repair their manufactured and mobile homes. Unlike Real property residences, mobile homes are built different and require a specific knowledge. The process of getting permits is different, the code of regulations is different and the way these homes are built is different. Many mobile home parks are senior citizen parks, but we have been seeing a rise in family parks as well. With this rise in family parks, more people are making the transition from over priced houses, to the more affordable manufactured homes. Because of this, we have recently seen a high demand for small repair services required to meet title 25, health and safety requirements.

If you are in the process of selling or buying a mobile home, you will discover that the home may have deficiencies with plumbing, roofing, electrical, undercarriage or fire safety.  Sometimes these repairs may be small and sometimes they may be more extensive. We have built a team of professionals that handle these mobile home repairs on a daily basis and can help you get these items fixed in order to finalize escrow on your mobile home sale.

Some of the common items we see that require repair on mobile homes are: Missing Earthquake straps on the water heater, smoke detectors missing in the bedrooms, missing carbon monoxide detectors, missing roof shingles, leaks under sinks, electrical that is not installed to code, missing window screens, soft or spongy floors, outlets that are not working properly, lights not working properly and unstable steps. These are all things we can take care of and more. We will crawl under your mobile home and provide you with photos of any items that may not meet title 25 health and safety requirements.

We pride ourselves on providing quality, affordable work in a timely manner. Many times customers are closing escrow on their new home and don’t have much time to have these repairs completed. We have the man power to take care of small repairs and large remodels quickly. We have been through good economic times and tough economic times and our customers keep coming back.
