Manufactured and mobile homes are back on everyone’s radar. Prefabricated homes—like tiny houses—have taken the world of contemporary design—and Instagram and Airbnb—by storm, making manufactured and mobile homes ultra trendy today, and for good reason. There are some serious benefits to mobile home living. Manufactured houses cost less than the amount to build and maintain a conventional house, homeowners enjoy the simplified lifestyle that many of us crave, mobile homes are energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, and they’re built on a metal chassis that could outlast a traditional foundation. “Mobile home” refers to homes built before 1976; “manufactured homes” are homes built after ’76.
However, even if a house is built to last forever, the appliances and systems in it are not. Household components like heating and cooling, toilets, and washers and dryers will eventually wear down and break. While your house may be covered under a short-term manufacturer’s warranty, a mobile home warranty will cover these major appliances and systems year after year.
