Deciding on the modular home manufacturer is as important as choosing the location or selecting the type and style of modular home that you need. You should understand that not all the modular home manufacturers offer the same services. Some of the manufacturers may be concentrating on only some type or style of modular homes, whereas other may build any type of modular homes. In addition, some manufacturers may build only in some parts of the country, while some other may build across the nation.
The process of selecting the modular home manufacturer is not so different from the process for choosing the general contractor. There are a few important points that you need to consider while looking for the manufacturer for your modular home. After finding a few manufacturers who satisfy all the requirements, you can compare them to each other to find the best one for you.
Type of Modular Home for You
This is the first thing that you need to consider while looking for modular home manufacturers. Find whether they offer the type of modular home that you are planning to have. Most of the large manufacturers will be offering a few modular home floor plans for each style of modular home.
There are many modular home styles for you to choose from like Cape Cod, Ranch, Chalet, Two Story, Colonial and Mansion styles. There is also the modern modular home style but many of the modular home manufacturers do not offer the modern style of small modular homes. If you are looking for modern modular homes, you should clearly enquire the manufacturer if they provide this style of homes.
Location of the Manufacturer
This is another important point that you need to consider while looking for home manufacturers. Try to find where the factory of the manufacturer is located. Some of the large manufacturers might have nine or ten factories across the nation, but most of the manufacturers will have only one or two factories. You should select a manufacturer with a factory that is close to your location. This will allow you to go for a tour of the factory to understand and evaluate their building process. In addition, finding a manufacturer near your location will also help you to save on the costs to deliver the modules to the building site.
