"Dear Pieramid Foundation
I know that I will be selling my
manufactured home in the future to step up into a newer home. Getting the best
resale value when that time comes was an important factor in my decision making
process. I'm glad I have the new permanent foundation system that recognizes my
house as real property."
"Not only was the price right,
but having the highest appraisal value when/if I sell my manufactured home
let's me sleep better at night. Having my home classified as real property
since it is set on a permanent foundation is the way to go."
"Now I have less back pain @
the end of the day from carrying cement blocks around. These new lightweight
piers really speed up my installation time. Not just the weight, but the new
way of anchoring the piers down is faster than installing the old tie downs
that blocked all of my access to the house. Things are totally better with the
new piers. Thanks,"
"Specific site engineered plans
make it much easier for my crew and I because now I have plans that tell me
exactly where the placement of each and every pier should be. No more guessing.
I have confidence that the house is set on very solid foundation. Many new
aspects of setting homes have changed. Shopping is easier now that I don't have
to hunt, count, and haul around heavy cement blocks along with wood caps and
shims. Now I just look at the plans, count the piers, load the truck and
"From a developer's perspective
- this is a no brainer when it comes to finding a new way of setting a home in
frost heave applications. I have cut my excavation costs in half using this new
foundation system. By passing on the savings, I am able to offer my customers a
better value land-home package. My sales have increased and now I have a
competitive edge on other dealers in my area. The new perimeter support way
meets all the FHA guidelines as well, so now I can get more customers qualified
with zero percent down. It's a win-win from many sides. Just wish this system
had come out years ago."

"What I can say about the
pieramids is that site specific engineering for the foundation plans is the new
wave of the future. Once my building inspectors became familiar with the piers
on a solid cement foundation, inspections have been a breeze. Eliminating all
the excavation and load bearing skirting costs for brick or pressure treated plywood
for pit set applications has saved me thousands. My installer crews also like
working with the new stands. Let me know if you need anything else,"
