Reader Richard wrote in with a question about home repair, and we want your help with it — though half the Toolmonger staff has lived in manufactured housing at one time or another, none of us has ever re-leveled one before. Richard writes:
My North Texas home is of the doublewide variety. It’s a perfectly lovely little home and only about 8 years old but I think one side has sunk a little, just a little. I just noticed it in the seam of the ceiling and would like to nip it in the bud. What are the options and what is involved in fixing it? I’m guessing you can either do it yourself or have it done for you through some kind of service. Does your readership have any idea what I’m in for?
How about it, readership hive-mind — anyone have experience in this matter or know a good resource for navigating these waters? We looked around and found a guide that might help you get your bearings to start with — we posted the link below. If you have first or even secondhand knowledge, let us know in comments.
