Mobile home repair? Anyone reccomend someone in southern Ohio?

9 Replies

Looking to acquire a double wide mobile home in southern Ohio.  Having trouble finding someone who has experience to repair, especially as it relates to insulation under and around.  Do not want to invest in if I can not get someone that knows what they're doing.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Looked online and called around but no luck, nobody wants to touch a mobile home insulation it seems.

I own and have fixed up a few mobiles

Not much different than other homes.

IMO no need for a specialist. Particularly for what you are talking about doing

They are elusive.... the ones who can do MH specific things and reasonable.... 

Find the dealership who sells used homes/ repos etc.  Ask them for referral.  Not all things need someone MH specific but sometimes you have to order things you cant  get at home depot /lowes or say like leveling a house, tying it down etc.

@Ryan Groene Might know someone. Other than that, I don't think you need a MH specialist. If someone can do insulation on a house, they should be able to do it on a MH, am I right Ryan?

Also Chris I help organize a meetup here in Cincy where Ryan and I both attend if you'd like to meet some more investors and eat some pizza. https://www.biggerpockets.com/forums/521/topics/565842-cincinnatis-best-ever-rei-mastermind

@Grant Rothenburger....that is correct...for the most part, if the contractor is worth anything theyll be able to figure it out.  But if you just call some MHP's and ask around they should know someone.  

 Are you still in Cincy?

@Chris Turner Check with your local mobile home supply store. Usually, they'll have a list of contractors for their customers who specialize in different areas of fixing up mobile homes. If you need help and want to learn more about finding and hiring contractors, I wrote a book on the subject. Best of luck!! 

Thank you all for your advice.  I will start looking into it again after the holiday.  @Grant Rothenburger I do still live in Cincinnati.  I just registered for the meeting and bought my ticket.  Look forward to seeing you and other investors there on Tuesday!  Thank you for reaching out.

 Happy to do it.
