|Editor's Rating ||
|Editorial Review||Silvercrest Homes are above average manufactured mobile homes and modular homes. Their manufactured homes are good and appealing. Their modular homes are average but seem to lack when compared with premium modular providers. We think Silvercrest is a good option for entry level modular home buyers. Our mystery shopper reports their website has alot of floorplans but few details on specifications. Hopefully they will add to this over time.|

Personal Reviews of Silvercrest Homes
Larry W Linder from Anza, CA
Bought the Manor 18 in 2006. Eleven years later, no complaints. Great home.
Solid construction, great insulation. Electric bills less than $80 per month.
From cabinets to sinks, high quality. Recommended Silvercrest to neighbors and they bought as well, citing honest pricing and professional staff.
Mary from Portland Oregon Outskirts
We have had our Silvercrest approx. 24 years. I have always loved living in it. We have done maintenance but stick builts need maintaining also. Over the years we have replaced the windows with vinyl, the carpets with good quality, custom drapes, a 40 year roof, and new kitchen and bathroom flooring. We have replaced the appliances, and really need to replace the bathroom tubs and showers. We also need to replace the counters, but it has been 24 years of daily use for most of these things.
The structure of our home is still good, no drywall cracks, sagging, etc. My husband thankfully was very wise when he put this home on overkill as far as the foundation. Concrete runners, concrete blocks, and a complete concrete foundation on the outside perimeter.
We knew going into this that even tho we upgraded everything available, it was still not top of the line on anything, and it was the bones we were most concerned about. 2 x 6 framing also.
I am not finding the ability to edit this review, and the box is really small, so I hope this review makes sense.

I built my Silvercrest Manor home almost 21 years ago. It is in great shape with NO drywall cracks after all this time. All plumbing and electrical are still original and have no issues. When I built this home I took advantage of several options and made some custom changes in the size of some of the rooms. Two years ago I replaced the original kitchen counters with slab granite and the kitchen looks brand new. I had the house appraised last year for a refi and the appraiser was amazed at the condition. I live in a very windy place on the High Plains of Colorado and even after all this time I barely hear the wind blowing outside unless the winds are gale force. I would definitely build one of these homes again. The trick is to put a good foundation under the house and have a quality crew seam it together. The guy who did mine took several weeks but after more than 20 years I would challenge anyone to be able to point out where the seams are in my family room wall - if not for the ceiling beam you would never know.
Randall Dickey from Juniper Hills CA
Ours is a 1992 Silvercrest Manor with some upgrades, 60# snow load, stucco exterior, tile roof, sautillo interior floor and seismic zone 4 foundation. Only issue was county mandated sprinkler access panel on roof which leaked upon first rain. In 24 years the maintenance costs have been on accessories not the structure. We are very pleased with our choice.
Laura from Washington State
My husband and I just bought a 23 year old (1991) Silvercrest Presidential home. We had an inspection done and over all, it's in great condition. Some minor plumbing is needed but that happens even in stick homes and a few minor settlement cracks. We are thrilled to be homeowners.
Michael Grefe from Dunnigan
I just bought a 1992 Starcrest SS5 and I love the quality of construction and is much better than older mobile homes. It does have a lot of drywall cracks which I assume is due to settling but otherwise it is in amazing condition.
bebe from Salem, Oregon
I have the same window issues as mentioned above. I replaced the glass plane, looks so much better. Good thing, its vinyl window...all you have to do is just to replace the glass plane. Roof is still great, we are replacing it tomorrow in effort to reduce mold issue. We do have mold issue but not so bad because we kept the air flowing. We have 1388 sq ft Silvercrest made in 1999. It's 15 years old. We replaced water heater, dishwasher, and refrigerator. The stove is still good up to this day. We have lived here all since we got it new. The dry wall cracked in a few spots and a major one in master bedroom. It is critical that you keep it leveled. you can hire a contractor to re-level your house to avoid major drywall and door damages. I heard that silvercrest built the best but at the same time, there are some flaws. They used plastic house wrap. I think that's the recipe to the mold. I am not sure why they used the plastic wrap. I think they should use a different kind of house wrap.
Irene Covington from United States
The last years we have lived here, all we wanted is an answer on where can we replace the window that gasses released inside and can't see out of the window. Do they have a company that does this? Nothing, nada, ought.
Irene Covington from Buellton, Ca
Just a footnote to my review of 4 years ago. Not one time did anyone from Silvercrest, or Advantage tried to get in touch. Not an apology, 0, nada. I can deal with the appliance flaws, but the window that was crooked? The gases have released inside and now, you can't see out of it at all.Did anyone realize that all appliance come with only a "one" year Warranty? even the water heater!!
P.J.Sprague from Big Bear Lake,Calif.
Our Silvercrest is a Manor design and we have had it for 11 years. Be did have some roof leaks and replaced the roof. We are in a high wind wet area in the winter. We have had no repairs and all kitchen appliances still work great. We had a wonderful experience with the company we purchased from. Very helpful! My thoughts are for the price of a new house you can't beat Silvercrest even if there are some issues. I am in real estate and the same thing goes for stick built, they always will have an issue.
C Linnert from Santa Cruz County
Nice design terrible workmanship. Leaks everywhere everything moldy no support from the company to fix. Total huge loss! No not trust anyone at this company!
Tom from Warner Springs
My model is a 2005 Craftsman. I've been in the home for 1 year and must say so far I'm pleased. The insulation good we have high 90's in the summer and low 30's in the winter. There are a few small settlement cracks in the living room ceiling but all other cornors, doors and windows are in good shape. I cant really compain. It's a good and very afordable home.
Chris from San Diego
I don't even own the Silvercrest home yet, it is in escrow and the Silvercrest people take forever to respond to issues. When they do, they tell you how wonderful their manufactured homes are, but do nothing to fix the problems. I am so discouraged I'm not buying the home now.
Marie from Riverside, CA
Hmmmm, after reading most of these reviews looks like a lot of people don't care for the Silvercrest brand. I must have got a good one because mine is over 17 years old now and haven't had any problems. Original roof is still good and plumbing is still good and haven't had any other problems. If I did have a complaint it would be that the drywall people need to be more careful as some of the heads of nails under drywall finish stick up slightly. thanks!
Irene & Virgil Covington from Buellton, ca
We have been in our "new" home 5 years, and to this date, we have had 3 repairs on our "new" refrigerator, at the cost of about $400.00, 3 repairs and eventually had to replace our "new" microwave $300.00, replaced the water heater $500.00, have so far bought 2 thermopile's for the "new" fireplace. The ceiling is split and now going down the wall at the marriage line. We had our windows washed and the company pointed out one of our windows in the dining room was put in crooked. We lived in our home in the bay area for 38 years and never had so much repair work done. I am sorry, but I do not recommend your company to anyone purchasing a home for our area. The home is beautiful, but the expenses on a fixed income has a lot to be desired, or we got a "big" fat lemon.
Barb from Newport Beach, CA
Used to own a Silvercrest home in an entire community of them. Most sprung major leaks, one had to be gutted by guys in Hazmat suits and all had mould in the first year of ownership. Poor customer service with no resolution. Think twice before considering one of these. It took YEARS to sell mine (at a huge loss) as nobody wanted all the flaws and inspectors had a heydey with them.
Terry Wambolt from Nipomo, Ca.
I love the home but doing business with the company sucked. I had to get the state housing dept. on them before I go satisfaction. but I do love the home. even though it was put together poorly and constucted poorly. It has taken me three years to get the home where I want it now!!
vince wong from Newport Beach
I am the origional owner and the am having major issues. The front of the house needs replacing. Major design flaws in addition to poor construction is not a good combination. Issues include: Nail heads exposed on roof, no flashing or moisture barrier around windows, roof seams are not properly spaced. These issues were pointed out by the Silvercrest rep. When i called for support, the Manager of Quality said that it was my fault for not sealing the joints. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Charles from Sylmar, C.A.
Just purchased and moved into a 19 year old Silvercrest 3+2 home and my family and I love it! We are the second owner and after requesting a complete home inspection we were pleased to find out that the home was in great shape and we only needed to replace the HVAC and two original toilets! Not bad for a 19 year old home. This shows that Silvercrest builds great housing.
Liz Notrica from Big Bear City
THEY SUCK!!! I am the second owner of a model that has a major design flaw and they are unwilling to fix it. Their customer service is TERRIBLE. I would not recommend their homes to anyone.
