I'm going to install earthquake bracking under my home. A representive from Suresafe Industries gave a presentation in our community. I don't want to make the wrong choice and would appreciate any information either about this company or other options.Thank you, Ryane

Your decision on a foundation system is an important one and should be dictated by local soil conditions rather than loan requirements. If your looking for a top of the line system that will work well just about anyplace in the country take a look at the latest trends in California, where earthquakes are a factor and the foundation is more critical than anyplace in the country. The current trend is towards the products of FOUNDATION WORKS.

Their advanced systems were designed and engineered for manufactured homes. These foundation systems add a high level of structural stability and have proven most cost-effective for the manufactured home, buyer.

Initial costs are considerably less than other types of foundations. Average installation requires less than 1 day vs. up to 2 weeks for slab or runner foundations. Result: Dramatic out-of-pocket savings.

Meets industry standards for permanent foundation. Qualifies for FHA or VA loan vs. conventional loan. Result: Lower monthly Payments.

Foundation Works systems are waterproof...rustproof...vermin proof...termite proof.
Result: Less maintenance means continuing savings.

Foundation Works pads, stands, and precast concrete skirting can be easily moved and reinstalled at another location.
Result: Lower relocation costs.

Foundation Works meet or exceed industry standards, and have been proven safer under adverse conditions. Many cities in Oregon and Washington are being upgraded to Seismic Zone 3 & 4, and will be requiring earthquake resistant bracing in the near future. Thoroughly safety tested and certified by the State of California for use in Seismic Zone 4, 'the Foundation Works Systems exceed strength requirements by a factor of 2!

Traditional foundations offer little protection from wind damage because the manufactured home literally sits on top of the foundation. Foundation Works Systems solidly anchor your home and footing...and have been safety certified in 80 mph winds.

Foundation Works are engineered and designed exclusively for manufactured housing. Tests show the Foundation Works are 4 to 6 times stronger than the average foundation for manufactured housing, thus providing more safety and stability. Foundation Works offer you the best foundation technology available for your manufactured home...plus added safety and stability...at a lower cost.
