|Editorial Review||Virginia Homes provides modular homes. Their construction specifications are average but they do offer very competitive pricing which can be a good fit for mid range home buyers. Our mystery shopper found them to be quick to respond to customer questions. These homes are a decent option but to be honest they are not our favorite modular home company since there are others that offer more customization and overengineer to higher specifications. Of course those other modular home providers charge much more than Virginia Homes so you need to figure out what is best for your personal home buying situation. For some people Virginia Homes is the smarter match when you consider budget and home preferences. We suggest most home buyers to at least consider them.|

Personal Reviews of Virginia Homes Manufacturing Corp.
Holly Crump from S.W. Cape Coral Florida
I am a ex employee of Va. Homes. I have to say that I enjoyed working for this business. I worked there for around 7 years I to was one that was around before the big lay off. The economy went down hill and, many business suffered from that hit. But I see now that they are up and running again. GOOD LUCK..... hopefully they will have many more successful years. I would have to add that If anyone is thinking of buying a home. I would suggest checking out VA. HOMES.

I think the modular homes are the best built homes we ever built.i worked there from 1993 to 2010 when we got laid off

We bought our home through a dealer but ordered it specifically built(making changes of our choice). Our home was purchased in 2004 and we have found no problem with it yet. We absolutely love it. We have raves all the time about how well built it is. We would highly recommend the Virginia Home to anyone.

I don't know about anyone else but I have a 1983 Crestlane model home from VA Homes Mfg. Even though it IS somewhat an older model, VA homes didn't know what they were doing with the kitchen and dining area, wash area too at that. The overall construction seems to be week and the design of it all is just aweful. Lack of cabinents and counter space. The best part is the floor to ceiling mirrors in the living room and double mirrored closets in the master bedroom. The home has never been moved and was brought here in 1983 from Piedmont MHC in Winston Salem.

I am the proud owner of a 1995 Virginia Home. "The Stratford" is the floorplan I chose, and have been very satisfied with the construction, etc. The local dealer wasn't much to brag about, but has since gone out of business. I don't feel that it's fair to blame Virginia Homes for the business practices of the local dealer!

I purchased my Virginia Manufactured Home in 2006. Very well made and I love the design Petersburg. Many upgraded features, like recessed lighting in kitchen and brick mantel for gas fireplace. Only one negative issue was the home was already put up in a Modular Home Park off Cedarville Road, in Maryland. The park sold me the home not Virginia Homes Manufacturing Corp. The park management did not fix the items listed on the walk thru as needing repair and all in all were very umprofessional. The lot was too small of the size home and maintenance was poor in the area as far as road work, water and sewer. I have sinced moved my home to a permanent foundation on my own land and am extremely happy with it!

My husband and I bought a Virginia Home in a little over 10 years ago. The house is made well but little things are not to my liking. First of all the kitchen cabinet doors are not put on straight. Whoever hinged the doors forgot to use a level. I had problems with my carpet. It literally had a bald spot between the living room and dining room that was VERY noticeable. The dealer told me it was up to the company to replace it. The company said it was up to the dealer. They both kept giving me the run around and never replaced it. (By the way this was all before the warranty was up) The seal on the french doors went bad and there was moisture between the glass and they brought over just the hinged part of the door and not the stationary door, dropped it off and never returned to install it. My tub had a crack in it and the man came a put some putty on it that was the same color as the tub instead of replacing the tub. The color eventually wore off and I have a red patch on my off- white tub. I paid extra to have deluxe bathroom vanities (which had drawers) and they put in the standard vanities and never came back to replace them or give us back our money.
The structure is built well but they do not stand up to their warranty. I do not know if it was the dealer or the company but they do give you the run around.
The only pleasure I had with the company is the fact that I have steered several perspective customers away. I bought my home from a dealer in Winston-Salem and have actually thought about standing in front of there with signs warning potential customers.
So, although I love my home...you can see why I was very disappointed with the whole ordeal.

I purchased my VA home in 1994 and is very well constructed and has held up very well over the past 20+ years. They used to have their own outlets for sales,in VA, as well as sell to many other top name dealers, in the NC area. I suggest using the factory direct outlets as it is far easier to get any warranty issues resolved if anything comes up. Many have commented on how solid my home is and feels-vs-homes made by other companies, of similiar design. I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5, due to buying mine outside of their sales outlet stores(lesson learned) and was a smaller home dealership, which just happened to sell their models. I don't feel they support these out of network dealers as much, as they do their own retailers and this is probably due to not being paid when out of network dealers order parts and such. If you must go with a dealer outside of their own network, go with a large dealer who sells their models, and has the financial backing to support you, if any warranty issues come up. Stay away from small, fly-by-night dealerships. Believe me, research dealerships and talk to people who have used their setup services, warranty repairs, etc before you buy. Getting a slightly cheaper price is not worth the headache of a shoddy setup, by a dealer who doesn't care about you after the sale. If you know anyone who supports the mobile home businesses in your area, such as setup crews, sheetrock workers, etc(as they work for many different dealers under contract)..you can ask them who is the toughest dealer to have to work for as far as quality goes, do they do walk-thru on their own to make sure things are right,etc. These are the folks to purchase from! In NC..as far as dealerships go, I've heard alot of good things about Franks Homes, over the years.
