When Looking at Modular Home Manufacturers, Make Sure You Compare “Apples to Apples” – Charleston, WV

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Occasionally we run into previous potential customers and find out they bought a modular home from somewhere else (yes, we are still friendly with them). After talking about their new home, we may inquire why they bought from somewhere else. The typical answer is not that they liked the other home better, but they thought they were getting a better deal by saving thousands of dollars or getting a bigger home for the same money. Unfortunately, they are now paying for it in one way or another and wished they would have bought a modular home from Silverpoint Homes.

So how can a similar size modular home cost thousands less? From builders or manufacturers specifications and options. A few big things like cabinets, carpet, and windows, and lots and lots of little detail items like door knobs, light fixtures, recessed lights, and lumber dimensions add up. We also dress up our display model modular homes to show the variety of potential options.

Silverpoint Homes believes most modular homes are well built in terms of factory quality, however not all modular homes are built to the same specifications. Over the past several years, many doublewide/HUD manufacturers converted their products up to modular, while other modular manufacturers developed homes that can look nice on the surface, but do not have “good bones” or underlying quality. It's like putting “lipstick on a pig.” Initially they look good, but over time the home has problems. This has created confusion and perception problems with homebuyers looking into modular homes.

Below is a table of specifications to aid in comparing a typical Silverpoint Homes’ modular home to a typical lower value modular home. Many are hidden specifications that will not be called out in detail on sales literature. The home might not have all the lower specifications listed but it will have several. Additionally many site builders will use similar undocumented specifications to shave costs. When you are in the final stages of selecting a home or builder, Silverpoint Homes encourages a detail specification review to ensure you get your modular home built the way you want. If price is the primary concern, we can build your home with different specifications to meet a lower price point. We can assist you in determining which specifications should really matter to you and which ones may not.

When comparing “apples to apples”, you will discover that our homes really are the Best Value per Square Foot.

Custom-Built Modular Homes: The Most Convenient Option For Housing Projects in Princeton, WV

Joseph Coupal - Sunday, September 14, 2014

People looking to build modular homes in Princeton, WV probably have done their homework and have many reasons to go that route. But there is a primary reason why prospective new home buyers are turning to modular homes instead of traditionally built homes. The reasons, however, can all be summed up with one word – CONVENIENCE.

Modular homes are constructed partially at a factory where the environment is controlled before they are assembled at their eventual locations. They are comparably cheaper because they are prefabricated on an assembly line that is stocked with high quality materials. These materials are safely stored and secured against the harmful elements of the outside surroundings, changing weather, and the threats from thieves. This reduces waste or loss of materials, which are bought in bulk to lower the purchasing cost. The assembly line is also manned by specialists and quality control experts to ensure that the building process is done right and to the highest standards.

Each modular home is made up of multiple modules, that when completely constructed on its permanent site, can create convenient and contemporary spaces. And even though modular floor plans are pre-designed, a specific floor plan can be customized at the customer's request. The homeowner has virtually unlimited say in how they customize the trim and details to their exact specifications and preferences.

Modular homes, therefore, have provided homebuyers an avenue where they can optimize their time and investment, making these homes the most convenient option for housing projects. If you are interested in quoting or touring any of these modular homes, visit or call our Silverpoint Homes Sales Center.

The All-New Charleston Model & Revised Beckley Model are Now Open for Tours

Silverpoint Homes is excited to announce that two new model homes are now open for tours at our modular home sales center near Beckley, WV. These homes are great examples of why our homes are the Best Value per Square Foot.

The Charleston

The Charleston is an all new triple wide modular cape home (3 sections deep). The triple module setup provides a very different layout than many traditional 2 module floor plans. The floor plan is open, spacious and makes the house feel much larger. Additionally, the 42’ x 42’ footprint lines up very well with an attached garage that we can build.

The first floor features 1,695 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and second floor with 835 square feet for a potential 2,530 square feet. The second floor can be used for a media or family room, extra bedrooms, or just storage – there are numerous possibilities.

The Charleston’s kitchen has some very nice features:

  • Whirlpool Black Ice Appliances
  • Full mosaic backsplash
  • Under mount sink right in front of a huge picture window
  • Stunning gray stained flat panel oak cabinets

The master bathroom has New Era’s Versailles Spa Shower that you have to see to believe:

  • A huge 4’ x 7’ walk-in shower
  • Full tile from floor to ceiling
  • Glass mosaic accents
  • Rainfall shower head
  • Dual sprayer wands

To complete the home, the Charleston also features:

  • 8’8” ceilings
  • Renaissance trim package
  • ¾” hardwood in the kitchen and dining room

The Beckley

The Beckley is now on its 4th revision since Silverpoint Homes custom designed it around 8 years ago. The new Beckley is the same great floor plan with 2 living room areas, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms plus that huge walk-up attic.

Perhaps the most dramatic change is the exterior. We added a hip roof to break up the roof line, created a recessed entryway, and optioned bead lap vinyl siding for a unique look.

The interior is up to date with the following attractive features:

  • Gorgeous dark flat panel cabinets with long stainless steel pull handles
  • Full subway tile backsplash
  • Black quartz under mount sink
  • Arts & Crafts base time and casing package
  • Extended vinyl plank flooring

The previous model included an 8’x24’ reverse gable porch that can be added as an option to this home to add even more curb appeal.

Both homes are ready to be customized to suit your personal needs. We invite you to stop by and tour these magnificent homes at Silverpoint Homes.

Modular Homes are Custom-Built to be Cutting-Edge - Charleston, WV

Joseph Coupal - Monday, August 11, 2014

Modular Homes in Charleston, WV debunk the claim that prefab homes cannot be built to look cutting-edge. Modular construction has made the prefab home industry trendier after being underrated for years due to on-site home construction.

The flexible modular floor plans offer many customizations with any of floor plan styles, so you don't need to feel locked in by any base floor plan. That means you will have a modular home that is built uniquely for you to match your exact specifications. Just by looking at our preset floor plans, you have a starting point. Then, you can have your chosen floor plan modified to meet your preferences and requirements.

When it comes to modern design and construction, nothing beats the price of a modular home. It is less expensive to build and customize than most stick-built homes. You can reduce construction- and maintenance-related costs significantly as compared to standard site-built home building. This is because high quality materials are purchased in bulk which are then securely stored in a controlled environment until they are used to build modules.

Modular homes have a lot to offer, especially when it comes to the convenience in home designs. Find the perfect home for you at Silverpoint Homes.
