What Is The Difference Between A Heritage Home And A “Double Wide” Or Manufactured Home?

Mobile homes, now called manufactured homes, are built to the HUD Code. They utilize a steel frame in the floor system for structural support and are built to a lower code for overall construction. In addition, they are typically considered “personal property” and will usually depreciate in value over time. The combination of these factors usually results in severe restrictions on their placement in communities.

Heritage Homes are built in sections, but that is where the similarity ends. We use the highest quality materials and conform to the most stringent codes in the nation: the Uniform Building Code (UBC) and the International Residential Code (IRC). Heritage Homes are also built to all building codes for your specific location, and in many cases construction exceeds the required codes.

Our homes are built to appreciate and are treated the same way as site built homes are by banks, mortgage companies, appraisers, and insurance companies.
