Advantages Manufactured Homes over Site Built Homes.

  • Manufactured homes are built on a rigid steel frame. While this is necessary for the initial move from the manufacturing plant to the site, it also protects the home throughout its lifetime. If the home has to be relocated, this is an inexpensive and safe process. 
  • Materials used to build the home are stored inside and never exposed to rain, snow, sunlight or other damaging conditions. This ensures that these materials remain in excellent condition and produces cost savings in construction. 
  • Plumbing and duct work are fully enclosed in the same blanket of insulation which virtually eliminates the danger of freeze-up. 
  • The skilled people who build manufactured housing work inside, away from the weather, so working conditions are always optimal. This creates an environment where top-quality work can be carried out at peak efficiency. 
  • Operations such as electrical installation and insulation are carried out from outside the walls. Not only does this make the work easier and more efficient, with a more exposed work area, quality control can be significantly better. 
  • Work on manufactured housing is far more specialized than with conventional, site-built homes. 
  • Because Manufactured homes are factory-built as units, testing and inspection can be carried out in a much more rigorous fashion than with site-built homes. Integrity of electrical systems is tested with high voltage and water systems are tested by applying high pressure air. 
  • Manufactured homes must meet strict standards. Inspections are carried out by highly trained, accredited inspectors. 
  • Delivery times for manufactured homes average 4 to 8 weeks from the time the home is ordered.
