Re: trusting dealers

We live in the central Texas area and had the same problems you are having. I managed a manufactured home park for years so I knew exactly what I wanted. The best advise I can give is know what you are buying. Every home builder has different levels of quality in homes. Learn how manufactured homes ...

Re: Tiling a roof over shingles!

Sorry to say, I doubt your roof will hold real clay tiles. However not all is lost, I am currently reroofing my home with a metal spanish tile from Berridge Manufacturing.

Homeowners insurance in Texas

Didn't get the memo

In 2001 my wife and I decided to purchase an upscale manufactured home for our 5 acres in central Texas. The dealer, lender, and county tax assesor all stated that if we converted to house to real property it would be considered the same as site built and be classified as a single family dwelling. S...

roof load

I have a 2000 Saturn model 3215-A. The spec sheet states it has 30lb roof load trusses. Would that be live load or a total load of everything? I would like to reroof with a metal roof.
