Our Review

Editor's Rating
Editorial ReviewCrest Homes is a division of CMH and builds above average modular homes. In 2008 they restructured their operations due to the poor economic condition. These modular homes match the quality level of traditional stick-built homes. They provide a good combination of experience, customization and cost savings. They are not the cheapest but they provide better quality than most others. The builders that we interviewed were very pleased with Crest Homes. The only issue we encountered is that their customer service was a little slow.

Personal Reviews of Crest Homes

John Clabough from NY
Master bathtub not connected to drain pipe caused flooding in dining room. Walls on stairway buckled. This also happened to my brother in law who had purchased the same model home. Upstairs windows on my colonial were off center. My downstairs bathroom window has always been drafty even after attempts by dealer to fix it. Water stains on upstairs ceilings but dont know why. Master bathroom octagon windows came apart, hinges, handles etc..

Lisa from Maine
Purchased house in october 2008 heating problems, door problems with heat loss, two by four boards are bowing out the side of house and very very slow getting help....not happy warranty up in 5 months not sure what will happen

Linda from Delaware
The Crest modular home was an excellent home for the money. It is a shame the Milton, PA. plant was closed. They were a product of sell and resell. Crest was owned by Schult Homes, then Oakwood then Clayton Homes. When Clayton Homes purchased the Crest factory, they sent new GM's to the plant and all the employees saw the writing on the wall, as well as their builders. The bosses were there to disassemble a fine product. Why did Clayton Homes need a modular home company when the already had a "hud"ular, with whom Crest would compete? The staff at Crest Homes of Milton, PA. were all top notch... I hope they all find employment in another wonderful old company, like the Crest of years past!!!!!

Kitty from Virginia
Love the house!!!! But the follow up with problems has been very slow. We are being held up in occupancy due to their lack of attention. Well built, would use them again, but now I know what needs to be in writing before I sign the contract!
