What are the advantages of manufactured housing?
Manufactured homes are factory-built homes engineered and constructed in accordance with the federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The HUD code was established in 1976. Prior to that time, manufactured homes were referred to as mobile homes. Manufactured homes may be single- or multi-sectioned and are available in various sizes and floor plan configurations. top
A modular home is built in a controlled factory environment in sections, or modules, and is engineered and built to the state or local building codes where the home will be located. Factory-built modules are then transported to the site, where they are installed on permanent foundations and completed by professional installers. top
First, our manufactured and modular homes are both built in the same quality-controlled factory environment. But the basic difference between the two is the building code to which they are constructed. Manufactured homes are built to comply with the federal HUD code, while modular homes are built to a state or local residential building code. top
Titan specializes in factory-built homes, which include manufactured homes and modular homes. Because of our size, we offer a variety of homes to choose from. We build homes that range from 600 square feet to over 3,000 square feet. Titan also offers features you might not expect in factory-built housing, including numerous floor covering options, vaulted ceilings, entertainment centers, spa-style bathrooms, fireplaces and custom cabinetry, just to name a few. top
Now that you've thought about the type of home you want, you should think about its location. Where do you want to live – urban area, subdivision, or in the country? If you have a family or are planning for one, do you wish to live near schools, parks or recreation areas?
Something else you need to consider when buying a factory-built home is whether you will purchase private property or lease a home site in a manufactured housing community. We can help you determine what area may best suit your needs. top
No matter what your financial situation, we can help you find the best financing possible. We also suggest that you speak with a qualified lender and get pre-approved for a mortgage before you begin the process of shopping for a new factory-built home. Pre-approval not only gives you a better idea as to what homes are available in your price range, but it also lets you know your eligibility for certain financing programs. To give you a better idea of how much your monthly payment will be and how much you will need to borrow for your chosen factory-built home, enter your information into our mortgage calculator.

Modular construction is a process not a style. A misperception exists that "modular" refers to a type or style of homes and buildings. Modular actually refers to a construction process in which large components are pre-built in a manufacturing facility and then shipped on carriers to the project site. Architecturally, modular construction is not limited to simple ranch style homes; it can be used for a variety of housing styles and commercial structures. top
Building off-site in a controlled environment has many advantages. Modern component construction processes combined with a team of skilled craftsmen allow us to fabricate a stronger and more durable structure. Building materials and finished modules are protected from weather-related damage that can lead to costly rework. In addition, modules are continually inspected throughout the building process to ensure they are built to the appropriate residential or commercial building code and meet our quality standards. In addition, modular building provides solutions to many problems encountered on-site. With approximately 80% of the structure completed in the factory, there are fewer delays from inspections and bad weather at the building site. The chance of material theft and vandalism is minimized, fewer subcontractors are needed to complete the project and stress upon the surrounding community is significantly reduced. top
