Frequently Asked Questions
What Is a "Modular/Manufactured" Constructed Home?
The term ‘modular’ describes a method of construction and not a style of building. The manufacturer Moduline Industries builds the homes within a climate controlled setting and then the module(s) are then transported to the site for final completion by our experienced team. All home and building structures are built with 2×6 exteriors and maximum insulation according to industry standards and building codes within the Province of British Columbia.
How Can Lakeridge Homes Help You with Your New Home?
We can assist with all the details in building your new home from start to finish. Whether it is for a vacation park or cabin model, single or multi-family home we will walk you through the process and help guide you to getting the features and exactly what you envision for your new home.
How Long Does It Take to Build My New Home?
The build time depends on the design and just a few of the many advantages of choosing a manufactured home is the speed and consistent quality that is provided within an environmentally controlled facility. With weather condition delays being eliminated and the home foundation or pad preparations that can be done at the same time as construction, this ensures that in most cases the home is complete and delivered right on time. On average a home can be produced and delivered on-site anywhere from 8-14 weeks from the day of order. On-site completion may vary depending on the site preparation required but can be as little as 10 days in some cases and ready for you to move into your new home.

What About Home Warranty Protection for My New Home?
The protection for your new home is the same as it would be for a site-built home offering a 1 year worry free manufacturer’s warranty on all workmanship and material defects that might occur during the 1st year after completion of your home. Plus buyers receive an exclusive 10 year structural warranty designed to specifically protect new manufactured home buyers.
Where Can I Put My New Modular Home?
Modular Home designs can usually go anywhere and can be designed with different structural support systems for placement on either a concrete pad, steel piling support system or with a truss flooring system that would require either a basement, crawlspace or pony wall foundation. It is best to find out what is acceptable in a mobile home park, city or region you are interested in settling your new home by contacting the City or Regional District for a list of restrictions and bylaws in that area
Can I Get a Mortgage on My Modular Home?
Yes, of course! Whether you are placing the home on privately owned or leased land mortgages can be obtained the same as a site build home. Whatever your financial situation, Lakeridge Homes can assist by recommending preferred lenders who are experienced in this area.
