|Editorial Review||Commodore Homes is a large provider of modular homes. They have several divisions to serve most of the United States. Their quality is above average and the homes appearance will nicely blend into any neighborhood. They also provide manufactured HUD homes which are not as good as their modular homes. When reviewing their online floorplans make sure you are looking at their higher quality modular selection. They cost more than the HUD homes but the extra quality is worth it.|

Personal Reviews of Commodore Homes of Indiana
Toby from Turtle Lake, ND
We got our home almost a year ago....ever since then, haven't heard a thing from them about the issues we have sent to them and our dealer....our dealer says it's the factory's issue, and can't seem to get you to answer them or do anything about it....who am I to believe?
We like the layout of our home very much...however, the doors don't close completely, the tile back splash is crooked, the cabinet door hardware was put in and cracked the cabinet wood, came with crown molding after we specifically asked for no crown molding, chip in the shower finish, carpet has a stain and there is something under the carpet that sticks up, and well....etc, etc, etc. I could go on but I will stop there.
We were excited about having the ability to have a brand new home, but if we knew it was going to be like this, we may have chosen a different route.

We bought our home in '97 using a dealer from the Rockford area. We were VERY PLEASED with Commodore homes. They fixed some damage done during transport and did it neat and fixed everything properly. The dealer is the key to these homes, ours was not nearly as prepared as he made himself seem and his errors cost us several weeks of waiting for our home to be finished so we could move in. Our beautiful new home stood in our driveway for several weeks thanks to our crappy dealer. I would give Commodore homes a thumbs up-the only reason I did not give them 5 stars was some minor dissappointments such as cheap faucets-I had to change almost every faucet in the home within 5 years. Make sure you do EXTENSIVE research on the dealer you are planning to use! By the way-The dealer I was very unhappy with is not associated with Commodore homes anymore according to the dealer finder on the Commodore Website.

The siding,floors were warped.The marriage wall was off and floor has always had a "hump". Carpet (their best grade)was shot within 15months, vinyl floor tore easily from dog running,not digging, just running,all GE Appliances quit.Frig at 6mon (fix 5X)stove 3X, Dishwasher2X and replaced disposal at 4months. To get them to stand behind an $82K house has been impossible. After 6yrs, ALL locks have broken,3 doors won't shut(bathrooms&m.bedrm)and so far 4 shorts in electrical system. For a single mom this has been the house from HELL! When it arrived an employee had written (perm. marker)"Commodore Sucks", it has bled thru four diff.paints.That is ok seeing how all the drywall tape on ceiling has shown thru to the point of REDOING EVERY ceiling.The studs in the walls 2x3.4" clothes rods pulled the studs apart!Bookcase in hall,shelves collapsed when 3/4 full.Both showers the handles have shredded, no main water shut off, this house is on full walk out basement, on 18AC,to be our dream home to raise kids.lol LAMO!!!! Work,$$$$$ and excuses from Comadore. The retailer "left" and I am stuck with CRAP. If I had to do this all over again NO WAY would I choose Commodore! I really liked their designs and models,3years to find the "perfect" home only to have me near bankrupt from repairs.I just wish they would stand behind their homes instead of making excuses.My kids are embarrassed to live in our home because the siding has blowen off 3X and had to be replace to "try & match", and OSB on floors? Really????? warp city in kitchen and bathrooms.Love the design (Entertainer);the same design every other company has,just was smoked screened by "arches and tile". Hated to say I was wrong about a company like this but I WAS!!!! I will never be able to get my investment out of it now.
Response from Glen Alessandri at Commodore Homes
If we have identified the correct home in our records, this home was purchased in 2004. Our records indicate that all service requests we received were repaired to the customer's satisfaction. The last communication that Commodore Homes received from the customer was a service request in 2006. In an effort to have a satisfied customer, Commodore completed this request in 2006 even though the home was no longer under warranty. It is unfortunate that this home owner has had a less than desirable experience that included a dealer closing his business.
Stain Pavia from Lansing, Mi
In the spring of 1990 my fiance and I ordered a modular home 28x80, 4 bedroom, 3 bath, fireplace, jet tub etc.. The dealership (no longer in business) screwed up so much of what we ordered it wasn't funny. I called directly down to Commodore and they sent 2 gentlemen up here to correct what they could. The repairmen were fantastic, prompt, polite, very hard working fast and efficient. these guys had to put in 2 cupboards, replace the carpeting (wrong color) in the family room and replace all of the linoleum in the kitchen and mud room because of the dealer NOT doing room sizes accurately, They also put a second skylight in our kitchen (cathedral) ceilings, another carpet in one of the bedrooms, and a few other minor things. NOW 20 years later, we have put in wood floors in the kitchen replaced the counter tops, etc..... put new roof on about 4 years ago, HOWEVER, to us this was all due to normal wear and tear, tons of kids stayed here, at one time had 13 of us here at one time, the roof was because we put so many xmas decorations on the roof. To this day, our siding looks great compared to new and newer homes that are all buckling. About the only issues we have to this day is that it did not have the triangle roof above the entrance, and the double pane windows with argon need to be replaced. All in all, we still love our home, the layout and most of all the service the COMPANY gave us. We are retiring and now want to put it on a basement, so if anyone knows how we could get the floorplans for this I would appreciate it. Again, the dealership sucked, but the company was great!

Robbinhood from Greensburg, IN
We love our Commodore home. We were newlyweds when we purchased it and now we've been in it for almost 9 years and have 3 small children. My husband and I love to cook and the large kitchen is wonderful. We still love the house, even though it is overall, very small. I often say, "How many newly married couples have the opportunity to live in a brand new home?
Our first year, we had a Commodore employee come and fix all of our complaints from the house settling before our one year warranty ran out. No problems from them for doing the work. We've finished our basement which doubled the size of the house. We've added a porch and back deck and changed out the front door. We're about to replace the carpet with hard wood. We love our home and are so thankful we went with Commodore!
Paul from Cedar Springs, MI
We love our Commodore Grandville Ranch. With almost 2300 sqft. and 6" walls, flat ceilings, huge bedrooms and kitchen, we couldn't be happier. Our dealer is great to work with and this home shows no sign of cheap construction.
