McGarry and Madsen Inspection

mobile homes are


Mobile homes are not the same as regular houses. They are built under a different nationwide HUD building code, have a different type of tie-down foundation, and unique electrical and HVAC systems. Most home inspectors don't know much about them, and some won't even inspect a mobile home.

    If you are buying a used mobile home, don’t

have a lot of money, and can’t afford to make a

mistake—then it's important to find an inspector

that really understands what they are looking

at. When you choose McGarry and Madsen to

inspect your future manufactured home you get

a team inspection by two licensed building contractors and home

                                                         inspectors, and a detailed report with

                                                         photos to help you make your buying


                                                             We are mobile home specialists and  

                                                         have evaluated over 1800 manufactured

                                                         homes in Florida, done extensive

                                                         research into HUD standards, completed

                                                         the Mobile Home Installers course offered by the Mobile Home Division of the State of Florida Department of Transportation, and are familiar with the recurring issues in mobile homes as they age.
