LEVELING ASSIST DEVICES
Even though your home site may look level to the naked eye it might not actually be! There are a variety of leveling devices available (i.e. laser levels) to assist in making sure your site is truly level. Most rental equipment stores have these available!
PREPARING YOUR HOME SITE
You should ALWAYS make sure to check with your home dealer and the installation manual for your home to make sure that you have prepared your site properly.
We can provide you with general information on how to prepare your home site but, we always want to make sure that you have prepared your site exactly as the installation manual for your brand of home intended.
The installation manual for your home will provide you with a detailed list of instructions on proper drainage under your home and proper crowning of the site PER the manufacturer.
