WHO DEVELOPED THE MANUAL ?

This Book was compiled from the long time experience of contractor Mark Bower, the owner of Aberdeen Home Repair. For years Mark has been one of the best known hands-on men in the manufactured housing industry. Every day the crew of Aberdeen Home Repair is in the field taking care of manufactured home service requests. Whether it's a major roof replacement or a simple broken window crank, Mark has gained a reputation for meticulous, professional workmanship. Mark is also recognized for his manufactured home repair lecture and consulting services. Additionally Mark has participated in Federal Government MH projects sponsored by both HUD and FEMA and he has been called as an expert witness in lawsuits that require a full understanding of the complex systems that make up the modern manufactured home.

WHAT'S IN THE MANUAL ?

This is the only book of its type, available to the public that we have been able to find. As you would expect from the title, the repair and upgrade techniques described in this manual are specific to manufactured homes.

General information that relates to all homes such as shingling, tape & texture, laying vinyl and carpet, and such are NOT included as that information can be readily found in any library or bookstore.
