Our Review

Editor's Rating
Editorial ReviewSchult Homes are well built manufactured mobile homes. They have a long reputation of well built manufactured homes and now being part of the Clayton network they have more resources to continue that reputation. They do not focus on true modular homes and their homes will have a hard time blending in with upper scale neighborhoods. Their homes are basically very good looking manufactured homes. No matter how good a manufactured home is, it just can not compare to a customized modular home. If you are looking for a manufactured home you should contact Schult, if you want a custom upper scale modular home you should look elsewhere.

Personal Reviews of Schult Homes

Linda Hoyle from Kingman, Arizona
Our home is just 3 years old our problems have been a problem from day one! We completed our inspection list and met with the representative who attepted to fix a few small things setting up appointment to complete the rest..He never came back, we made several calls and they finally sent someone that finished a few items the problem is the issues keep cropping up. We have had cracks on counter tops, cracked bathroom sink, loose cabinents, front pieces falling off kitchen cabinents and drawers, loose roof shingles, now the roof has begun leaking at the roof cap simply because of poor workmanship, we also have leaks around our windows again because of poor workmanship and all the short cuts that Schultz uses to save money. We have cracks down the seam line inside on roof and our stucco just peels and drops of all on its own, we also have the exterior stucco cracking around the windows and nails exposed along with un patched nail holes in random places, we have called various times to have these problems addressed and basically we are stalled then promises are made for someone to come out, so we play the waiting game, and we wait and wait and then they tell us we are past warranty and its up to us to fix their mess! You should run from purchasing a home from them it will be a nightmare!

Jamie from Eudora, KS
I have not had a pleasant experience and now I am in the position to "live with" what they did. When my home was first inspected, I identified some issues. They "fixed" them and I came to find out a few months to a year later exactly how they "fixed" them. My kitchen cabinets set about a half inch away from the wall. The "fix" was to lean the back splash tile to reach the wall. Well, that only lasts so long. I paid extra for heavy insulation, but they failed to seal my windows. My carpet was not stretched properly and ripples. The amount I saved purchasing from them is pennies compared to what it is costing to undo their mistakes. I have been in my home since August 2004 and I find new problems every day. They are not normal wear problems, but cutting corners problems. When I filed with the BBB, they came out and finally made my roof quit leaking after 3 years. They never came back to fix the other things like they promised they would.

Margaret Seamon from Elk Mound WI
Actually, it's about 10 BELOW! Less than 3 year's, home is shoot! Cabinets falling, carpeting fraying, cracking ceiling & walls,sub-standard floors! That's just a couple of things! Oh, why not contact Schult? I have been for three year's now. It is a wait and see game they are playing. Sorry, hubby and I too old!State VIOLATIONS on this sick house! If you are looking for recycled cardboard box, welcome to my world with Schult!

Cheryl from El Paso County, CO
I bought a Schult home 10 years ago. I have never been sorry. Some of the trim has broken over time, but from me banging into it with the vacuum 100 times and not from any rot. They even left me extra trim. My home is as solid as the day I bought it. It looks nice and I am very happy with it. I flooded it a couple of times by forgetting the bath water. The only complaint is that the wall board soaks up pretty quick. I mopped it up and put a fan to dry it but there is still a faint water line at the bottom. I have ONE spot (about 3x6 inches)by the shower that I need to replace after 10 years. I know other people that have bought other homes and have had multiple problems, not to mention only 4" walls instead of 6". My home is well insulated and my bills are lower than most people's I know and out here in the desert I run the air a lot. Overall I feel I got my money's worth for the product I received.

Rick Johnston from Southeast
I use to work for Schult homes. I worked in manufacturing and I must say the experience was not very good, however was enlightening. Clayton Homes is a good company and I believe cares for the customer. The problem is that some of these now Schult plants were not in fact a true Schult facility before the aquisition by Clayton in April of 2004. You have the nice Schult sign out front, but internally you have the old philosophies and make a fast buck mentality running the place. Management talks a good talk on quality, but is not committed on doing what it takes to improve it. Get as many houses out the door in a week as you can, deal with polishing it off after it is out the door, but please whatever you do, don't stop or slow the line down. The original Schult/Marlette plants that build mostly Mods (IN,MN) are your best bet, steer away from a Schult HUD house. Buyer Beware! Do your homework first, make sure your getting a real Schult and not a poorly built imitation.

Gary and Sylvia Hickman from Holton, Ks.
My retirement home is a nightmare. Cabinets fall off walls, sinks leak, bathtubs pulls away from wall, put in cheap veneer instead of oak trim and cabinets, siding bows, is faded and molded, walls and ceiling is molded, windows are filled with mold. Our retirement home has made us both ill with breathing problems.

Dave Johnson from Morris MN
Contrary to the editors rating, Schult does make homes that fit in an upscale development. My Chateau Elan Schult looks as good as the $350,000 home across the street, but at 2/3 the cost. We have had only minor problems that were immediately addressed by the factory. When I asked my dealer about the above complaint from Kansas, he explained that Minnesota builds higher quality homes than Kansas, and a Schult Heritage is a double-wide, not a modular!!

Laura Pinnick from Blue Rapids, Ks
We ordered our Schult Heritage home and it was set up in July,1990. We have had problems from day one. It started with the faulty installation from the seller and progressed to broken water lines, rotted floors, the siding is rotting off and the roof is leaking with huge soft spots. The only good thing is we ordered the extra insulation package so our utility bills are lower while the floor rots out.
