Mobile Home Leveling Cost Breakdown
The cost of mobile home leveling depends on several factors including the size of the house, the type of foundation it has, and the amount of damage done to the structure. If you want to know how much it costs to level a double-wide mobile home, we recommend using our free calculator.
Location of the Mobile Home.
If the mobile is located a long way from our workshop, the cost of extra fuel will be added to the bill in the form of a surcharge.
Size of the Home
The size of the home will depend on what type of mobile home it is. If it’s a double-wide mobile home, then it should be at least 24 feet wide and 36 feet in length.
Some homes have a totally enclosed area under the home with one or two access panels. These homes are harder to level and take much longer to finish. Enclosed skirting makes the job environment hot, dark and very awkward for the technician.
