Quality Manufacturing

  • All aspects of the process are controlled.
  • Weather does not interfere with manufacturing.
  • All technicians, craftsmen and assemblers work as ateam and are professionally supervised.
  • Inventory is better controlled and materials are protected from theft and weather-related damage.
  • All construction materials, as well as interior finishes and appliances, are purchased in volume for additional savings.

Durability

  • The building materials in today’s manufactured home are the same as those used in site-built homes.
  • Homes are engineered for wind safety and energy
    efficiency based on the geographic region where they are sold.
  • Manufactured homes may be one of the safest housing choices available today because of federal laws requiring smoke detectors, escape windows, and limited combustible materials around furnaces, water heaters and kitchen ranges. Properly installed homes can withstand 120-130 mph 3-second gust winds in areas prone to hurricanes.
