Building Relationships Since 1972

What is a modular home?

Modular homes are the fastest-growing segment of the home building industry. A modular home is simply a home built to local building codes in a controlled, environmentally protected building center using precise and efficient construction technology. They are built to the same codes as a site built home. And because they must be transported to the home site, modular homes are much stronger than site built homes.

What’s a manufactured home?

The term “manufactured home” specifically refers to a home built entirely in a protected environment under a federal code set by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Manufactured homes are NOT mobile homes. The term “mobile home” describes factory-built homes produced prior to the 1976 HUD Code enactment.

The HUD code requires each manufactured home to meet the following requirements:

  • check2
    Built as a one, two or three section home in a protected building center
  • check2
    Transported to the home site on a frame and installed
  • check2
    Built on steel beams with wheels under each section
  • check2
    Meets the high standards for heating, plumbing, air conditioning and thermal and electrical systems performance
  • check2
    Passes stringent third party inspections
  • check2
    Meets the strict HUD code restrictions for design and construction, durability and strength, fire resistance, transportability, energy efficiency and quality
Architecture Land Usage Costs Portability
Modular More freedom Unlimited placement or deed restrictions Cost per square foot slightly more Finance, real estate value, appraisals same as a site-built home
Manufactured Larger footprint Home-only mortgage available (so land is not tied up) More square footage for the money Home can be relocated

Excellent experience in the end and we love our new home. Contracted complete project with Roy's and was the best way, due to delays in construction over the last year. Reggie and Bill were great to work with as were Roy's sub-contractors. WELL DONE!
