Industry Standard Insulating Materials for Manufactured/Mobile Home Crawlspace

The manufactured home approved insulating materials are Batt Insulation, which must be at least R-19 (6 inch) faced or unfaced in the crawlspace, and Blown-in Insulation, which must be at least R-19 (7.6 inch) in the crawlspace. These insulations are held in place in the crawlspace by a vapor barrier or underbelly. The vapor barrier is made of polyethylene, a woven, breathable, tarp-like material. Another product that can be used and is manufacture approved for holding insulation in place is a standard house wrap, such as Tyvek or Everbuilt house wrap. The vapor barrier or wrap must be attached to each floor joist beside the home’s I-beams the entire length of the home. This is to ensure that the insualtion, whether Batt or Blown-in, is properly held in place. All materials mentioned in this article are industry standard when replacing or repairing the underbelly of a manufactured home.

Macomb Township Water Damage Repair

Here is a look at a recent Macomb Township water damage insurance claim repair due to a busted dishwasher drain line under the kitchen sink. We replaced the flooring in the kitchen, dining room, foyer, and sitting area as you can see in the pictures below. The new flooring brings out the homes natural light and adds brightness to the space.  

    
    
    
 

Macomb County Wind Damage Repair

Clarkston MI wind/hail storm damage insurance repairs

Here is another storm damaged home we recently repaired.  As you can see the rear elevation of this home got pounded due to the storm coming in from the north west.  The Front elevation did not get hit as hard but since the wind was swirling the large hail did enough damage for the siding and skirting to be replaced.  These photos show that the siding must be completed before the skirting of the home can be properly installed.

Washington Twp MI Manufactured home shingled roof

Here is a roofing project we recently completed on a manufactured home.  The existing shingles where a 15/20 year three tab so since we were tearing them off we gave the homeowner an upgraded 30 year dimensional  shingle.  By the way I would never suggest putting more than two layers on this type of home, if your are doing a shingle over make sure there is only one existing layer of shingles.

Shelby Twp MI Wind/Water Repair to Soffit, Fascia and Gutter

These are before and afters of a wind/water damage repair made to an over hang.  The over hang had to be rebuilt because wind damaged the shingles and allowed water to make its way through the sheeting into the overhang.  This went on for some time and ended up rotting out the soffit structure and fascia boards in the area.  We were able to build off of the original structure to make the needed repairs as seen in the first picture.

Metal Roof Installment in Chesterfield MI

These are pictures of a completed barn metal style roof over an existing mobile home metal roof and expando.  Metal roofs are a great option for covering existing mobile home roofs that have to be coated or sealed.  The best benefit of these types of roofs are their durability and low maintance.

Animal damaged insulation insurance claim in crawlspace Chesterfield MI

This project consisted of replacing insulation and vapor barrier in a crawlspace that was damaged by possums.  The possums torn holes in the vapor barrier that you see in the provided pictures.  Once in the vapor barrier the possums had free range to the insulation of the home, in which they peed, pooped and trampled.  The damaged insulation and vapor barrier had to be cut out from under the home and new was installed. The following pictures show the damaged area before and after repair.

These are before and after pictures of a counter top from a remodel of a kitchen that we recently completed.   The original top didn’t have a backsplash therefore when we installed the new top which had a backsplash, we had to modify the top to fit properly.
