Modular homes are a type of manufactured housing where components of the home are built in a factory and then assembled on site. These homes offer a less expensive alternative to traditional stick-built homes and often have a similar look as well.
While these types of homes have their distinct advantages, they also have common problems and complaints by owners. Knowing what you are getting into with a modular home will help you decide if it is the right choice for you before you shell out the money to buy one. Also it is important to note the comparable pricing of building a Panelized home, which is a far superior construction method.
