Custom Manufactured Home Exteriors

Posted: January 19, 2017 by Global Administrator
To make a new manufactured home truly feel like “home,” many customers choose extra customization options including:

• Porch designs with decking covering the length of the house
• Dormers and porch overhangs
• Wraparound porch designs
• Decks and railings with painted or treated wood materials
• Basic landscaping, foundational plants

There are many experienced dealers who provide custom manufactured home exterior services to enhance modular or manufactured homes. Color and style can make a dramatic impact on form and functionality. Adding a porch creates the illusion of more outdoor space for casual seating and entertaining. A dressed up curb with landscaping and steps leading to an inviting porch space gives a home style and character.  Check with a retail center near you for exterior options for your new home.
