All mobile homes will need to be re-leveled from time to time and so often the main cause for your mobile home being unlevel is moisture. It’s usually because the ground becomes soft during the rainy season and the soft unstable ground under your mobile home allows the blocks to sink and move.
Many times mobile homes are out of level because your mobile or manufactured home was not leveled correctly when the mobile home was set up. Make sure the mobile home installers used concrete or hardwood to level your mobile home and they use the correct number of blocks to ensure your home is stable.
Mobile homes that were leveled correctly using concrete footings can still need to be re-leveled at some point in the life of the mobile home for all of the reasons we talked about above. We don’t have frost freeze cycles and expansive soils like many of the northern states, which is always a problem for mobile homes.
Here are some signs to look for too tell you if your mobile home is out of level:
Doors and windows in your home will begin to stick and will be hard to open, or may not shut at all.
Floors that are out of level are a sure sign that you have problems. They’ll also make noise when you walk on the soft areas.
Countertops that are out of level in your kitchen and bathroom, as well as cabinets that become hard to open and close are a good indicator of a mobile home that’s out of level.
Exterior decorative block and skirting that has buckled outside your mobile home is another sure sign that you have settling problems.
