How often should you relevel a mobile home?
Thursday, April 2, 2020
A mobile home in Florida on a standard stacked-block foundation should be releveled every 3 to 5 years. If you live in an area with frost heave, you may need to do it as often as every year or two.
Homes with a slab or deep foundation only need to be leveled if you notice problems. Go to our article What are the signs that a mobile home is not level? for more on this.
There are leveling instructions for do-it-yourselfers on several websites around the internet, but if it involves more than just tightening the shims at a couple of piers, this is not something we recommend that you tackle unless you have experience with mobile home foundation repair.
