Seeing that Maine mobile homes often take more abuse than homes in other States, the proper and complete home inspection is essential before a purchase.
The harsh winters, dragging snow and water into our mobile homes can be very harmful, consequently creating mold and wood rot issues that the naked eye cannot see and as a matter of fact only Thermal Imaging and a moisture meter can detect. It takes experience and the proper education to give you the correct Mobile home inspection report however that is not enough, above all the inspector must really care about this inspection. Due to the fact that a previous owner usually does not have the home inspected on a regular bases, current and upcoming issues are not addressed until they become a major concern. As a result of this costly issues are usually developing and some of which may cost thousands of dollars to correct and/or be harmful to your family without your or the prior owners knowledge.
“Knowing is more than half the battle, as knowledge is power and the more you know, the more control you will have over your homes future. As a property inspector I have had years of experience coming across many issues that you will not find in any text books, the inexperienced inspector out there would have no clue if it was an issue or not. I have spent 4 years in college as well as hundreds of hours with online classes to make sure I also have the proper credentials and understanding of the newer HVAC systems as well as structural concerns.Engineered Mobile homes have always been a favorite of mine as in many ways they can be better built than many other homes in your area” James MacNaughton Owner of AnnRuel Home Inspections / Maine Mobile Home Inspections
