Typical Road Damage

When you transport something as large as a mobile or modular home, road damage is not only a potential risk, but is expected. As your home travels down the road, the movement of the truck will inevitably cause cracks to appear throughout the drywall in your house.

Do not panic! This is completely normal. When a contractor comes with some putty and paint to cover these cracks, that’s called “finishing” the home. Your manufacturer may even include a small paint & putty kit for you to do this yourself, if you're price savvy.

This cost is usually included in a potential loan, as road damage cracks are a normal and expected thing. To better familiarize you with what this typical road damage looks like, we’ve included several photos showing you examples.
