Manufactured homes like traditional ones have their distinct advantages. Find out why they’re preferred by some home buyers.
Protection from outdoor elements
Traditionally built homes are exposed to heat, cold, water, dust, and other elements while construction is ongoing. Materials used for construction are more prone to the effects of moisture and heat. Manufactured homes, on the other hand, are built indoors. Materials used are kept in warehouses so these do not run the risk of damage due to exposure.
Manufactured homes are less expensive than same sized traditional homes. According to an expert builder, these homes are normally priced 20 percent less than those homes built on the site because they are built within a controlled environment. Of course, costing will be affected depending on the builder and the distance to be covered when transporting these homes.
Made of durable materials
Manufactured homes are built to withstand being transported from work site to buyer’s site. Builders use jigs, lag bolts, and other materials that ensure durability. These materials are sometimes skipped by builders of traditional homes.
What should you keep in mind when planning to renovate a manufactured home? Let’s take a look.
Go for inexpensive remodeling route
Manufactured homes are priced less so avoid major makeovers. If the need to remodel is for aesthetic reasons, go for inexpensive methods. Repainting is one example. Adding vinyl flooring, kitchen countertops, or cabinets are also practical considerations.
Upgrade with energy-efficient items
Adding energy-efficient items to your manufactured home definitely, adds value to it. Moreover, you’ll be saving so much on utilities. Energy-efficient doors and windows that provide added insulation can greatly curb expenses on the use energy for cooling and heating.
Determine the age of your home
Manufactured homes that are older than 25 years aren’t good candidates for expensive remodeling. Lenders disapprove home loans where the property to be purchased was constructed before 1976. Make sure yours isn’t within this age range when going for a serious or extensive remodeling.
Remember, choosing which part of your manufactured home needs remodeling must be given careful thought. Go for what is practical yet adds value to your home.
