MOBILE HOME PAD
Mobile Home Pad Installation
In Alabama, mobile home pads are regulated by Alabama Manufactured Housing Commission. Alsbama state law requires the pad to meet certain regulations.
A properly built pad will divert water from getting under the home and, therefore, prevent erosion or mold/mildew. The pad needs to be at least 10' wider and longer on all sides with a minimum of a one-half-inch drop per foot in the outside 10' perimeter with a light crown in the center. Sometimes on-sight dirt can be used, but sometimes dirt must be hauled in.
