Frequently Asked Questions

Is a modular home constructed to the same building code as a traditional stick built home in the state of Michigan?
Yes, modular homes are built to the Michigan state building code and subject to the same requirements as a traditional “site built” home.

Does a modular home have a steel frame as its foundation?
No.  The carrier that a modular home arrives to your property on breaks away.  The home floor system is built of the same wood materials a site builder uses and is placed and anchored on your block, poured or wood foundation.

Can you have a basement with a modular home?
Absolutely!

Can a modular home only be built as a square or rectangle?
Definitely not.  A modular can be built as a two story, cape cod, various ranch plans with attractive offsets, a chalet, etc.  There are literally hundreds of different looks you can get with modular housing.

Do modular homes come with brand-name components?
Absolutely!  Price Pfister faucets, Shaw carpet, Plygem windows, Kwikset locks,  and Cambria Quartz countertops are just a few of the names Integrity Homes commonly includes in their modular lines.

Can you tell from walking through a modular home that it is modular construction?
Many times a building inspector, professional home builder or a real estate agent can’t even tell if it is or isn’t modular - and housing is their living.  A modular is a real house in every way.

Can custom features be incorporated into a modular home?
Yes!   Alternate heating systems, tray ceilings, recess lighting, ceramic and wood flooring, window seats, 9ft ceilings and much more is available with modular housing.

Will a modular home depreciate over time?
No.  They will maintain their value just like any other site built home.  Their value will be determined based on the sale of other homes in the market.

Is it difficult to get financing and insurance on a modular home?
No more difficult than it is to insure or finance any other traditionally constructed home.

Does it take as long to build a modular as it does a site built home?
No.  In most cases, you can shave months off the construction process by opting for modular construction.
