Manufactured Home vs. Modular Home
Many people believe that a modular home is another name for a manufactured home, but these types of homes actually have some differences from one another. With this list of differences and similarities between the two, you’ll be able to have a better understanding of these types of homes.
- Building Codes
- One of the biggest differences between these two types of homes is that manufactured homes are built to the national HUD code standards, while modular homes are built with state and local codes in mind.
- Manufactured homes and modular homes are built using different construction methods. Manufactured homes are built and finished in a factory before being transported to the final location. Modular homes are also built in a factory, but they’re completed in sections rather than one piece. These sections are usually all the same size, but do have customizable options. Modular homes are then delivered to the site, where the crew finishes assembling it.
- Although each situation is different, modular homes generally cost a bit more than manufactured homes. Both options, however, will usually save you a pretty penny compared to a site-built home.
- After delivery, modular homes are finished and permanently attached to either a crawl space or a conventional basement foundation. Depending on your needs, manufactured homes can be finished with piers and beams, a crawl space, a slab foundation or a basement foundation. Unlike modular homes, manufactured homes do not have to be permanently attached.
- Both manufactured homes and modular homes can be finished in a pretty quick manner. Modular homes, on average, are completed between 16 and 31 weeks. Manufactured homes also have a pretty quick turnaround time, usually being completed within 4 months.
