Why a Manufactured Home? Because they are affordable and well-constructed

Today’s factory built homes are simply better than site built.   Manufactured Homes are not only constructed to specific Federal Wind, Thermal and Roof Loads depending on the region; they must endure the travel from a manufacturing plant to a home site.
What are the differences in those large house sections you see on the highways?  For simplicity there are two main types which differ in the building codes to which they are constructed.  First, Manufactured Homes are built to the nationally pre-emptive Federal “HUD Code”.  The second type Modular Homes, are built to state specific codes.  Manufactured Homes are built on their own transportation system.  Modular homes have a detachable transportation system.  Once completed both homes are virtually indistinguishable in finish and appearance when built to the same standards.

Consider the following advantages of factory built homes:

  • Constructed in a climate and weather controlled environment.
  • Constructed with specialized labor.
  • Lumber is precisely cut to fit which minimizes waste.
  • Walls, roofs and floor systems are built to maximize energy efficiency.
  • Materials are purchased efficiently in large quantities.
  • Extra strength is built into each home to ensure durability during transportation.
A well-built home not only lasts but is more comfortable.  Come to one of Jensen’s Fall Open Houses to see and feel the difference.  Besides the superior construction, you will find affordable homes with style and efficiency to fit your lifestyle.
