Q: How do modular homes differ from "stick built" houses?
A: Modular homes are pre-fabricated at an assembly plant. Tried and true production methods, weather less working conditions, materials bought in bulk, and quality training of personnel keep the build cost of each house low. The quality materials used to construct modular homes equal and often exceed those used in a "stick-built" home. Visit Hornback Modular Homes warranty page for more information. Read More Here
Q: What is an "on-frame" and an "off-frame" modular?
