Our Review

Editor's Rating
Editorial ReviewThey are a general contractor providing modular homes in Maine. They have relationships with several good quality modular manufacturers in Pennsylvania. This provides for better pricing but we do not encourage modular homes to be transported over 400 miles (and this is about a 500 mile trip) since this greatly lowers the cost savings with increased transportation costs. Alternative Modular Homes has been in business for over 25 years and have gained several customer testimonials. Their customer service seems to be lacking based on the experiences of our mystery shopper. But if you are looking for a modular general contractor in Maine there are few with more experience then Alternative Modular Homes. We suggest you visit Alternative Modular Homes for more information.
