|Editorial Review||Liberty Homes was one of the biggest and oldest providers of manufactured homes. They provided manufactured homes and modular homes across the country. It is hard to review a company this large since it had so many different options. It was easy to notice their committment to quality construction. They were definitely worth a look and they had the capability to build a great home for any type of home buyer. They had some nice designs for their modular line.|

Personal Reviews of Liberty Homes
Gerald Baldwin from Pennsylvania
I was VP of Sales for many years and worked for its founder, Ed Hussey,sr. Never built anything but great products.
Judith Prather from Eastern Washington
I am not sure what people are gripping about. My home was built in 1983 and I bought it from the original owners 10 years ago. They were an elderly couple in their 80's, that did not do much up-keep and had never painted the outside. This home has held up well to our brutal winters here. I am in the process of updating the bathrooms and kitchen and replacing the original windows. I love this home. It is very roomy (1800 sq. ft.) with lots of room for my dogs and grandkids to play inside on our very cold days.
S. Marie from Indiana/wisconsin
I wish that there was a 0 star. I will report my experience after all is said and done. I am not impressed and for anyone wanting a home from this company in my opinion I urge you to run and run fast. In my opinion this is not a reliable or quality company to purchase from.
Connie from wa
Had no problems until rim and sill joists rotted 1) roof needed to be replaced at 10 years old,found numerous broken roof trusses.2)Siding was the one that was under that huge civil suit brought against the manufacturer.Unfortunetly too late for us at the time,needed to be replaced, even with bi yeary caulking.Wall joists had rotted from the sill.Sill joists had rotted away from exterior walls.Because joists run horizontally to exterior wall,causing floor & wall sag along 15 ft of 2 bedrooms .Kitchen floor was warped like a rollercoaster ride !! and sheet vinyl was cut and patched because of nail hole repair at factory,left 4"x4"hole as patch came unglued.My home was made with PARTICLE board subflooring,i have rot at both outside doors jams,basically an entire 1' to 2' water seepage along the front perimeter of my home.My outside entry way was even made with particle board and had artifical turf on it,so that seeped in under doorway.We get 112 inches of rain a year, Yep 112 inches and the front of my home gets the most of the weather and is severly affected.My home was built in 1995.We had to prop up the exterior wall 2 feet inside our bedroom with a temp framed wall,until it was fixed.I had to removed the sheetrock from the interior wall,removed the insulation,which looked like it was burned and the siding(nothing to protect insulation)No house wrap,plastic or plywood! I noticed that instead of cutting holes through the wall studs to thread electrical wiring they had notched out on the exterior facing wall studs and layed the wiring in these notches and then applied strips along side the stud to keep the wiring in.So it would have been VERY easy to accidently nail the wiring.Only good thing about this is it was easily accessable to fix and less that 1000.00 to repair.And then the permit cost since its under L&I or else you will never be able to sell your home!Good thing my Hubby works in a lumber mill!Everything being replaced is mold,insect,and fire retarded!Green sheetrock,kiln dried and treated 2x6's and ground contact plywood for interior flooring.I sprayed insulation in the walls.We have 17 more years on our mortgage,i just hope that the old girl will make it that long!

Too bad there isn't a zero star. Our home needs a new roof, guaranteed for 20 years, the staff at the home office is rude, and not willing to go the extra step to help when there are questions or concerns. I would never buy another home from them.
Barbara Mehne from Moscow, PA 18444
If I could give you a zero I would. Got out home in Nov. 93 and was in it for Christmas. It was the nightmare from hell. Had many, many problems took them months to come and fix and when they did it ended up worse. We didn't want them to repair anything anymore. This week we just replaced our roof that was just 16 years old and had to replace sheeting because of the ice damming that they didn't know how to correct. When we took the sheeting off we had R19 on one side and R 57 on the other side of our catherdal ceiling. We paid several thousand for the upgraded cabinets and they gave us fancy hardware. The only way they would get a good review is if they reimburse us for the money that we have spent to correct all of their screw ups. I did call out there when we were having the problems and I told them that I wouldn't trust them with a hammer because they wouldn't know which end to use. We still have to work on the siding that they never put the insulation behind on several areas. I also dare them to call me and tell me this house was built to my specks that I paid for.
Jean Taylor from columbia, NJ
If I could have given less than 1 star I would! My home is only 4 years old, and we will be lucky if it lasts 4 more years. When it arrived it was so poorly built that a crew was sent out and spent 2-3 weeks trying to fix the shoddy workmanship. Not very successfully I might add. The unit leaks like a seive, the fireplace was not installed properly, the floor in the kitchen is pealing up because it was cut an inch shorter than the room. It is impossible to keep mice out because the bottom was torn in multiple places before it was delivered. The shutters with the exception of 2 are faded from the sun. The floors were never swept before laying the carpet and if you walk barefoot you occasionally step in screws which are sticking up through the carpet. shelves were attached where there were no studs and collapsed when anything was put on them. A hole behind the toilet was "patched with a piece of wallpaper glued over it. I could go on and on. I have never regretted anything nor wasted as much money on anything as much as I regret buying a liberty mobile home.
Jeanette Mathis from Virginia Beach Va
Just to let you know how reliable your old mobile homes are, I have a 1956 Liberty that my parents bought new in 1957 from a lot in Newport News, Va. I still live in the mobile home and it is now 53 years old and still in pretty good condition. It was definitely built to last.
