One of the most important components of your home is the foundation since it ensures the structure and stability of the home. Most modular homes can be placed onto a variety of foundation styles – below are the ones Jandel Homes installs most frequently:
- Gravel pad with cribs and blocking
- Gravel pad with telescopic steel pilings
The choice of your home’s foundation should depend on the soil type at the construction site, lifestyle choices, climate and budget. Basements can be costly, so if it is only being considered for the extra storage opportunities, a garage can be an easy solution for about ¼ of the cost of a basement installation. Climate is another factor to consider when selecting your foundation. Some foundations do not perform well in areas with high water tables or cold temperatures.
If your home builder is not installing your foundation, we would recommend that you consult with a Structural Engineer to discuss which type of foundation is best suited for your home.
