What are Modular Homes

Texas Modular Homes and mobile homes are two types of manufactured homes, but they aren’t the same thing. Both in design and process, there are some key differences.

  • Mobile homes are built completely in the factory, although the two halves of a double wide may be joined on the site. Modular homes are delivered in 3, 4, or more sections, and then assembled on site. These sections are connected on site to make the complete house.
  • Modular homes are built on a permanent concrete foundation, which means that the home is tied to the land, and depreciates at a lower rate.
  • Modular homes in Texas are customizable, so if you like most of a mobile home model’s floor plan, but not all of it, you can customize your floor plan to fit your needs.
  • 3 Advantages To Buying A Modular Home

  • First, modular homes are built to state and local codes, instead of Federal, like mobile homes. Because of this, Texas modular homes can be placed in more neighborhoods and communities than traditional manufactured homes, giving them the advantage to access of better schooling, cities, and parks. In this regard, modular homes have the benefits of site-built homes, but without the hefty price tag. 
  • Second, modular homes in Texas can be placed on a permanent concrete foundation. Mobile homes, on the other hand, are built on a concrete runner foundation that is movable and not permanent. Durability and longevity are two of the ways that modular homes are more like site-built homes. You won’t need to worry about the stability of your modular home in Texas. These factory-built houses are made to last.
  • Thirdly, our modular homes for sale in Texas are customizable. While manufactured homes fitted with options and some models have multiple options when choosing a floor plan, most have a set floor plan for each model. Our custom modular homes in Texas, though, are made to be personalized.
