Why Buy a Valley Home?

 

In the past, mobile homes did not have the resale value of houses, because they did not have the appearance of a house, nor were they built like one.  Today, many have house-type appearances, but there is only one actually being built with house quality construction and materials... an Award Winning Valley Manufactured Home... with more standard features for higher resale and a better value.

House Features of a 
Valley Home

Compared to

What most or all others provide as standard

2 x 8" floor joists and 2 x 6" exterior walls. Most use only 2 x 6" floors.
All studs and joists on 16" centers using #1 or #2 kiln-dried lumber stored indoors Many others are 24" on center and store lumber outdoors where moisture can cause it to warp in the home as it eventually dries out.
All 2 x 4" Interior walls 2 x 3" and some 1" lumber (not strong enough for use in the construction trade).
Full-size 36"  Exterior doors. Undersized doors and some trailer-type that swing out instead of in.
Windows - standard sizes in 6" increments Odd sizes with very limited replacement availability
Plywood roof with hand-tabbed shingles Pressed board which will deteriorate when wet, and very few hand-tab shingles
All batted insulation.  Comes in rolls with backing for moisture protection and is attached to remain in place. Blown-in insulation.  It is inexpensive and easily installed, but can pack down with settling or moisture and lose its insulation ability.  Higher heating costs.
Plumbed with copper water lines thru-out. Cheaper plastic plumbing without fittings; causing difficult repairs when needed.
Sinks and tubs with overflows,  full size shower stalls, steel porcelain sinks, and premium faucets - all name brands. No overflows, smaller showers, 2 piece or plastic fixtures that cannot be repaired.
Electrical outlets and switches firmly attached to studs.  Rocker switches throughout. Some fasten them only to sheetrock.  Not nearly  as permanent and more likely to cause problems.
Durable James Hardie Fiber Cement siding.  Guaranteed for 30 years Some use siding that isn't resistant to varying climates, fire and insects.
All 1/2" sheetrock on the walls, 5/8" on ceilings. Some wallpapered paneling and 3/8" sheetrock; less fire resistant and less puncture proof.
Full size eaves, front and back, to prevent stain on windows and siding.  Built with 2 x 4 truss ends and 2 x 6 facia board for attaching patio covers, gutters, etc. Front eaves only, if any, and 2 x 2 truss ends unable to withstand nailing.
Oak hollow core 32" interior doors (wood Jambs, frames, and trim). Pressed board frames, photo finish paper, or skimpy door jambs.
Sturdy oak module cabinets, screw-assembled with adjustable shelves, and drawers with metal roller guides and plywood bottoms. Photo paper, particle board, stapled assembly, or roughly framed with no interior sidewall, backs, or bottoms.
A stronger roof rated at 40 lbs. per square foot. 20 or 30 lb. rated roof.
Insulation of R -38/49 in the ceiling, R-21 wall, R-33 floor, and a large 5x15" R-6 heat duct to reduce heating costs. Lesser insulation and a smaller tin heat duct with no insulation.
Formica/oak window ledges on most models for moisture and warp protection. Sheetrock or paneling.
Rolled countertops with a seamless backsplash for moisture protection and easy cleaning, or tile backsplash. Seamed countertops or no backsplash.
Upgrade carpeting treated for stain protection and 6 lb. pad. Usually minimum spec. grade carpet and pad.
50 gallon quick recovery water heater. 30 or 40-gallon standard for most.
Premium guarantees of 10 years of more on paint, shingles, siding, windows and doors. Lesser quality materials with only a one-year warranty.
