|Editor's Rating ||
|Editorial Review||Burlington Homes of Maine is currently closed due to financial issues. Their main focus was on manufactured mobile homes. They do not have a strong modular home option. This is not to say they are a bad home provider as their manufactured homes are good quality. They are just not a good modular home provider. We would place Burlington Homes towards the bottom of our list for modular homes. Their website has floorplans and photos of their completed homes so you can judge for yourself if their homes are the style you are looking for. They are a smaller operation which helps them keep a closer eye on your home when it is being built.|

Personal Reviews of Burlington Homes of Maine
Thomas Beatty from ct
You get what you pay for....this was a middle of the line home. You can get better if you want to pay more, and there is a lot of junk out there that is not as good. No complaints.
Tony Petros from Norwich, CT
I just found out, after 18 years that the heating ducts were never installed. I had a professional duct cleaning company come in and they took pictures which showed - NO DUCTS WERE EVER THERE.

My wife & I purchased a Mfg Home from Burlington Homes and for the most part have been happy with it. We found problem areas and did try and resolve them but failed. I was told at a later date that the firm had gone out of business and so I did not follow up on my problems. I now find that they are still in business but it is well over 14 years so I guess there is nothing I can do. But my advise is to get EVERYTHING in writing and make sure all is done according to the contract. 1- Furnace was suppose to be a 95%eff with Air Condition ready. Neither was the case. I got a 80% and it was not air conditioner ready except wiring and thermostat And it failed this winter. Heat Exchanger burnt out. 2- I asked for a 40 gallon Gas water Heater with a ten year warranty, I got a 30 gallon gas with only a ONE YEAR warranty. And it failed in just over a year. I was not happy with these problems and as I said I would make very sure all was done that was agreed to.

I have had a few homes in my life time. These mobile homes are the best compared to some of the junk that's out there do your home work and talk to people who live in them. Johnny

Purchased new 1992...18 years and very satisfied. Only problem is stress fractures in cathedral ceiling when ground heaves in winter from frost...a cosmetic problem.
Grace from Hampton, NH
WOW !! I wish I knew what I was getting myself in for with this house. I purchased this home with the Real Estate Office making a big deal out of this house. If I knew then what I know now I would have NEVER purchased this house. I thought because this was a Mfg. home that the standards would be better then stick built, boy was I wrong. Nothing in this house is what I would call normal building code. Try and buy shades or blinds for this house and find that the windows are NOT normal sizing. Heating in the house is inadequate where one end of the house is hot and the other is COLD and I mean cold. It was suggested that I close off some of the heating duct registers in the part that is hot. Mmmmm let's see that is where the hot water heater is and beginning of the water lines. I have not even thought about what Mike in Hampton just talked about other then the wall are COLD. Then try and put rods up for drapes and look for studs, another problem. I have a stud finder and found the studs the only problem is that the screws will not go in, what is behind there???. This is just terrible and I have NO recourse to this. If you dare to read this and perhaps connect with me to help me with what is behind the walls so I can hang up curtains and blinds. Oh and just so you know the ones that were here were no word of a lie hanging off the windows and I thought it was just that they are not installed correctly. Boy oh boy was I wrong and this list goes on and on. Please contact me so I can ask some questions about the house. I'm not looking for anything other than information so I can correct the problems.
mike from Hampton NH
I own one of these structures and I have never seen such disregard for ANY building codes ever. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you have the home inspected IN DEPTH not your average home inspection here's just one example NO sheathing under vinyl siding just wallboard and insulation. STAY AWAY FROM THESE HOUSES AT ALL COST!!!!!!!!
