|Editorial Review||Guerdon Homes has a long history but in 2001 it was reinvented into its current state. They now build only modular homes and these above average modular homes are something to admire. One issue we do have is that they serve too large an area in our opinion. We do not like to see homes transported more than 400 miles due to rising transportation costs and the trip from their Boise, ID plant to California can be a long one. This is a company to look into if you are closer to the factory. Their quality is good and the revised focus on only modular homes give us good confidence that it will continue.|

we just purchased a guerdon americana 1994. need to the approx worth in order to buy insurance. we already found that there is difficulty since most co do not write insurance for mobile homes. thanks
Lois Anthony from Ft Payne AL
I think this is the same Guerdon thst produced my Magnolia in Vicksburg MS. Its a 1978 and many people griped about them - but mine is still solid as a rock. Go Guerdon
debbie collazo from ohio

John from Boise, ID
I own a 1993 guerdon singlewide and am amazed at how CHEAP the home was made. I had to COMPLETELY UPGRADE all the switches and outlets to meet code, the house was wired with RV style wiring devices that arent sold locally. the appliances are OK, but generic versions of name brands... the materials used for the outside trim are junk. masonite.... total junk. I'm having to repair that, and having a rough time replacing it as the materials have improved over the years. so, thats an upgrade.... the paint jon on the house was cheaply done... just a cheap "primer" to suffice and colored trim... the paint is failing on the south side of my home and they didnt even add rain gutters on the house! anyway, Guerdon is GARBAGE! Don't Buy their homes! new or used.....
Mark from Helena, MT
My Guerdon was built in 1993. I am the 2nd owner, the 1st purchased new. I bought it in 2003. It's a simple rectangular type home with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Why am I unhappy? Today I discovered water damage on the westside outer wall. To my disgust I discovered that behind the outer wooden 4 X 8 standard mobile home sheets were the 2X6's, the pink insulation and then the inner sheetrock to the house. I couldn't believe my eyes. Are you serious? I'm not a builder. I wrongly assumed that Guerdons were well built based on word of mouth. However, even with my limited knowledge of home building, I've seen dozens of homes built with 5 basic layers of a wall. The sheetrock, 2X6's, insulation, plywood sheets on outside, then a barrier paper and then the outer sheets. This house has the outer sheets, 2X6's, insulation and then the sheetrock!!! Having discovered this I can never in good conscience recommend a used Guerdon home to anyone. This one is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you'll find.
William C Gottfried from Rainier,Wa
I made the purchase of a guerdon home in 2005 and I am already facing the fact of having to replace my roof because of "POOR" workmanship and your so-called quallity of work. I think you people need to be building bird house's not homes- This is the worst construction I have every been witnessed to in my 63 yrs. You should be ashamed to actually be selling these homes.
Holly P from Arlington Washington
We own a 1990 doublewide that we purchased new and it is now 2010. I have to say that, yes, we have replaced all skylights and windows with the Milgard brand and replaced the roof & sinks and upgraded to tile floor in some areas. But by and large, the carpet and appliances except for the fridge has held up well, especially being 20 years old. The oak cabinets look good from the outside but the drawers lack quality to be sure. We had some issues when we first got it and found the company a little hard to contact/respond as I remember. But, by & large it has been a fairly decent home.
Marvin from Lewiston, ID
Our home was bought new in 2004. These homes come with the cheapest appliances possible. The toilets need upgraded immediately because the flappers leak (had to replace all three), then the toilets usually require 3 flushes to work. The doorknobs are cheap. The faucet in the kitchen started leaking within a month. Most frustrating part has to be the drawers. The cheap wood they use to mount the runners splits and drawers sag and won't close right. They do use staples to mount the runners. Too many other things to mention. Do not recommend.
Greg Rohland from Alberta
Our company purchased 36 Guerdon units and have found them very difficult to deal with behind the unfront smiles when difficulties arise watch out. You are welcome to call me directly to discuss further, 604-782-9107.
Linda Wilson from Washington State
We purchased a 1993 Guerdon in 1995 from Kenco in Vancouver, Wa. This has been the expeirencefrom hell. We have had a leaking roof for 10 years with no back up from this company. The home was manufactured in Idaho, it was a lot demo. We love it very much but the leaks have ruined everything. The floor has a large bulge in the utility room,needs to be repaired. All of the"LIFETIME" wndows are all fogged up, there are 8 of them.We have contacted people and get no where. I thought that businesses were supposed to stand behind their products. The new roof this year set us back 6000.00 and this should not of happened.Roofers from chehalis were sent to repair this. They did not even lay this roffing correctly and it leaked worse. The skylights have been repaired and replaced. the fan in the bath never worked and that too had to be repaired at our cost. We were told by your people reps, that Guerdon no longer existed and now I find this site.I feel that there should be some help or compensation for our misery. I have all records showing the so called repairs When, who,times and names.I would be so happy to have one of your reps come see the disaster that we have had to try and repair out of our pockets. There are no brands on the Windows so we cant even get help to replace them.I have talked to MIke Booth in 1998--Mike Pierce (Tacoma)John Meyers, Please please contact us.There is much moreto tell. This home is a Columbia MOdel 4604A Serial #G983A4704R Thankyou for your space!!!
