Standards of Practice

HUD Standards for PFGMH Certification:


  • HUD PFGMH certification ensures manufactured homes meet specific foundation standards set by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

  • It verifies that the home's foundation is designed and installed to withstand environmental and structural stresses.

  • Lenders like FHA and VA often require HUD PFGMH certification for loans on manufactured homes to ensure structural integrity.

  • Meeting these standards increases the likelihood of loan approval and favorable financing terms.

  • Homebuyers should confirm with their lender if HUD PFGMH certification is needed for their manufactured home loan to ensure compliance with lender requirements.


During a HUD Permanent Foundation Guide for Manufactured Housing (PFGMH) inspection, the inspector will perform the following tasks and report on various aspects of the property:



Inspection Tasks:

  • Assess the foundation to ensure it meets HUD PFGMH standards.

  • Verify that the manufactured home is securely anchored to the foundation.

  • Check for proper support systems and anchoring connections.

  • Inspect for stability and structural integrity of the foundation.

  • Evaluate drainage and ventilation systems around the foundation.


Reported Items:

  • Foundation compliance with HUD PFGMH standards.

  • Anchoring systems and connections.

  • Structural stability and integrity of the foundation.

  • Condition of support systems and footings.

  • Assessment of drainage and ventilation systems.

  • Any deficiencies or areas of concern that need attention.

  • Overall summary of the foundation's condition and compliance with HUD guidelines.


By thoroughly inspecting and reporting on these key elements, the inspector ensures the Engineer that the manufactured home meets HUD PFGMH standards for safety, stability, and compliance. After review, the Engineer will either agree that home meets HUD-PFGMH or disagree with corrective actions that are needed.
