Structural stability, quality, cost and our environment all benefit from the manufactured process but perhaps the greatest benefit is peace-of-mind. The manufacturing process eliminates most of the most common headaches associated with traditional on-site construction:
“I need more money”
Arranging financing for purchasing a new home takes a lot of planning and effort, and most people choose to purchase a home within their means. Saying within a realistic budget is important to everyone. But weather, site issues and labour coordination can all impact an on-site contractor’s ability to control costs, often resulting in your contractor exceeding budget and demanding for money. Because of the inherant efficiencies of manufactured homes, your price is guaranteed.
The Disappearing Contractor
Most of us have heard tales of this scenario. A contractor has more than one project on the go and leaves your house to deal with issues at another. Sometimes for weeks. With a manufactured home, every project is scheduled with no surprises or interruptions, so your home is completed on time.
A house built on-site is open to the elements 24/7. Exposure to all that moisture can cause your wood to warp and swell, causing cracks and other issues for years to come. Weather can also cause delays in construction. A manufactured home is built in a controlled environment and is wrapped in protective covering before shipping from the factory to your site.
Out of sight…
Many times you don’t know what quality you are getting with a site-built house. Once the job is done, a contractor may simply pack up and move on to the next project. Before leaving the factory, all manufactured homes are thoroughly inspected. This quality-control process gives 100% assurance that your home complies with national building codes and quality in workmanship.
