Steps to Buying a Home

Quality Built Homes

How does the manufactured housing industry maintain high standards for quality and keep costs down?

Manufactured homes are built inside a factory. The weather does not cause delays or damage. The methods used to build the homes and the people who do the work are consistently monitored and controlled.

These homes must comply with a tough federal building code. These standards, developed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), cover structural design, construction, fire safety, energy efficiency and performance of heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems.

A well-trained group of workers use sophisticated cutting and fastening tools to build manufactured homes. All parts of the home are built in the factory.

Inspection is performed throughout the construction process to assure consistency and quality.

There are major benefits to having your home built in a factory:

  • All aspects of the construction process are quality controlled.
  • The weather doesn't interfere with construction, cause costly delays, or warp or damage building materials.
  • All technicians, craftsmen and assemblers are on the same team and professionally supervised.
  • Inventory is better controlled and materials are protected from theft and weather-related damage.
  • All construction materials, as well as interior features and appliances, are purchased in volume for additional savings.
  • All aspects of construction are continually inspected by not one, but several, inspectors.
