Frequently Asked Questions About Manufactured And Modular Homes

What Is The Difference Between Manufactured, Modular, And Prefab 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 different sizes — single section and multi-section.

When it comes to comparing manufactured and modular homes, a factor that can set them apart, along with the codes each is built to, is the type of foundation typically used for each. Generally, a manufactured home will have a pier and beam foundation with skirting that can be used to personalize the home. If your home has a pier and beam foundation, it can usually be relocated by a contractor who specializes in manufactured homes.

Depending on factors like where the home will be located, manufactured homes can also be placed on a permanent foundation, crawl space, or basement, which are common foundations for modular homes. Components are built in a climate-controlled factory and assembled or delivered pre-assembled to the lot. 

Are Manufactured Homes 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.
