Frequently Asked Questions About Manufactured And Modular Homes in Ann Arbor MI

What Is The Difference Between Manufactured or Modular Homes And Mobile Homes?

Modern manufactured homes are extremely different from the mobile homes built prior to 1976, both in terms of construction and design. Manufactured homes are constructed with quality materials inside climate-controlled building facilities according to the HUD Code. They also typically come in many sizes — single section and multi-section.

Like manufactured homes, modular homes are constructed inside manufacturing facilities and then transported to the home site. The main difference between manufactured and modular homes is that manufactured homes are built to the national HUD code, while modular homes are built to all applicable state and local building codes. This is similar to the way traditional site-built homes are constructed.

The codes and standards a modular home is built to can vary based not only on the state but also the county, city or township the home will be located in. For example, some states like North and South Carolina both have standards about the appearance of a modular home that regulate the minimum roof pitch, overhang length and foundation wall requirements. Georgia and Wisconsin require modular homes to be permanently installed at the home site without a steel frame, while Tennessee allows on-frame foundations and lower pitch roofs. Michigan enforces standards for foundation systems and drainage.

What Is The Difference Between Prefab Homes And A Mobile Home?

Prefabricated housing is any building that has sections of the structure built in a factory and then assembled on site. This umbrella term encompasses several different types, such as modular construction or panel-built prefab homes. 

The regulations of a manufactured home have changed drastically since the late 1970s. Prior to 1976, a mobile home was an easily moved home that could be built off-site with little supervision and building standards weren’t very strict. The HUD Code formally regulated production safety and quality from then on, with official documents referring to these types of homes as manufactured homes starting in 1976 onward.

Is A Manufactured Home Safe?

Manufactured homes are regulated by the federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards also known as the HUD Code. Before a home is brought to the home site, it is rigorously third party inspected. Safety is also a priority inside UMH’s communities. UMH requires all of its residents to pass individual background checks before being approved to reside in its communities. Residents are also required to adhere to all community rules and regulations which are enforced by on-site management.
