There are so many advantages to manufactured homes it is no surprise that they are as popular as they are. One of the most important benefits of manufactured homes is the controlled environment in which they are built. The factory setting for the construction of these homes means that they are built according to strict rules and regulations. Their construction is not affected by vandalism, contractor delays, or weather. The factory environment reduces costs for the manufacturer as well because they are able to buy large amounts of building material and save money. These cost savings are passed on to the owner of the home.
Another important benefit for new homeowners is the speed with which manufactured homes can be put together once they are on site. Generally, they arrive about 90 percent complete, and with thorough inspections after assembly, homeowners can rest easy about the integrity of their new home. These homes are also highly energy efficient, and you can even have energy efficient appliances installed. The building process in the factory setting limits waste production, so the assembly process is greener than other types of construction as well.
Once upon a time, there wasn’t much opportunity for customization with manufactured homes, but that is no longer the case. Today, there is a lot of design flexibility that allows homeowners to get exactly what they want in their new home. Some floor plans are even available with additional stories, garages, and decks or vaulted ceilings. Homeowners can select their desired flooring, countertops and appliances.
