How does manufactured housing compare to site built housing?


 

Manufactured homes are built entirely in the home building facility under federal code administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which went into effect June 15, 1976, and has been upgraded numerous times. The code covers single or multi-section homes and includes transport to the site and installation. Regulations include design, construction, strength, durability, transportability, fire resistance, energy efficiency, and quality. Manufactured homes are built and delivered to a site; they are primarily intended to be affixed to a permanent foundation. Modular homes are built to state, local or regional code where the home will be located.


Because we build all our homes in state-of-the-art facilities, we utilize labor-saving techniques not practical for the average site builder. The controlled environment also improves the flow of materials and reduces the amount of "lost time" or damaged materials that are common on site-built construction sites. With more than 32,000 homes built last year, we are able to purchase materials at a more favorable price than most contractors due to volume. These savings are significant and are passed on to you in the form of affordable housing.



 

Do you manufacture and ship homes outside the U.S.?


 

Very rarely. Presently we do not have programs in place to build or ship our homes outside the continental U.S.



 

Do you supply the land to go with the home?


 

Yes. Local Home Centers have knowledge about land availability in the areas they cover.



 

Where can I find the HUD and serial numbers on my current home?


 

It all depends on the year built. From 1994 to present, the Data Plate, which includes model, serial number, HUD number and assorted other information on the home, should be located in the master bedroom closet.


For 1993 and before, the Data Plate could have been placed on the master bath vanity door, a kitchen cabinet door, in the utility room, on the inside of the electrical cabinet or in the master bedroom closet. All models, however, will have the serial number stamped on the front header. This is the I-beam that runs across the width of the front of the home. It will be located on the left-hand side of the header when standing in front of the home.



 

Can I rent a home from Marlette Homes?


 

Currently, we do not have a rental program in place for our homes.



 

Can I custom design a home?


 

A nearby authorized Home Center is an expert when it comes to custom design options and will be delighted to assist you. Many Marlette Homes building facilities specialize in custom homes while others feature standardized pre-engineered homes to enhance efficiency and value. It is likely that your Marlette Home Center and their building partners will be able to work with you to personalize your new home to meet your design and décor desires.



 

Do you build two-story homes?


 

Yes. Your location will determine the availability of two-story in your area. Contact a Home Center near you.
