|Editorial Review||Fuqua Homes Oregon is currently closed. It produced average modular homes. Their homes remind us more of glorified mobile homes and less of modular mansions. What is special is their commitment to energy efficiency which will help to reduce heating and cooling costs of the home over time. Our mystery shopper was very frustrated with their website and lack of helpful information. Fuqua Homes might be an option for entry level home buyers. But this is not a good option for upper scale buyers seeking custom modular homes. |

Personal Reviews of Fuqua Homes (OR)
Mark Pinkerton from Yakima, WA
We have been in our Sagittarius model for about 17 years. We have loved our home from the day we first walked in the front door. We added a two car garage. Otherwise, we had just the basic options. We had a problem with the shelves in the pantry separating from the wall, the drain pipe in the second bathroom wasn't long enough so there was a leak that went between the walls. I caught it in time to fix it. Then the moon window above the sliding door leaked between the glass panes and it is unsightly. Lastly, the glass block window in the master bath has condensation inside the blocks. It's made of plastic. The factory was absolutely worthless. They flat out lied to us and tried to tell me the shelving in the pantry that had the gap between the end of the shelf and the wall was a "spacer that allowed the shelf to expand and contract." Such a stupid lie. Other than that, we had absolutely no problem with our home. Energy costs have been very affordable. The construction of the home has been great. I don't feel we have had any problems that would have made us regret buying the home. The floor plan is perfect and we have been so happy that we can't imagine living in any other home.

I purchased a Fuqua already set up on 5 acres and wanted to put shelves up in the office and found that the outside wall studs appear to be 24" on center. How is that legal? How did that pass inspection?
TJ Miller from Oregon
I disagree with the "average" rating. The energy efficiency is insanely high (example - a small window unit normally rated for a 100 sq ft room wound up keeping the whole 2-bdrm home reasonably cool instead.) At nearly 20 years old, the only thing I've done to it is replace the hot water heater (because I wanted a 50-gallon one instead of a 30-gallon one). Pity they don't make them in Oregon anymore (but they do still make them in Missouri).

We bought our Fuqua in 1996. Triple wide. The roof leaked from new. After coming out 5 times and finally had to replace damaged sheet rock they got the leak fixed. We just replaced the roof last year only to find that we had a hole rotted clear through. They used the thinnest paper I have ever seen and should never be approved to use. There were several places where the particle board did not even come together, large gaps. Some of the particle board was not even nailed down. The trusses are made from low grade 1x2 material. I have a window that is leaking between the glass that was installed by a company that is no longer in business. The furnace quit working. The floors squeak since new. The siding bulges out to the point of gaps in between the panels. I cannot believe that these homes can pass any kind of inspections with the horrific quality of work and the cheap materials used. There should be a law against selling anything of this quality for people to live in. Stay away from these manufactured home. Go stick built!
George & Mary Eaton from Orting, Wa.
Home built approximately 2003. Roof leaking & roof contractor has found thin paper under roofing with staples used rather than nails.
William Berdrow from Albany, Oregon
I own a Fuqua mfg. home and I have a couple of problems that the factory has never been willing to address. First, the floor squeaks in many locations. Second and very frustrating is the way they installed the ceiling drywall. It seems that they only nailed (secured) the ceiling drywall panels around the perimeter of each sheet and didn't secure the centers to anything. Now, after many years of living here the center of each ceiling panel is sagging. I have had a drywall expert look at it and he told me that the only way to correct it would be to try to screw the center of each panel to the roof/ceiling truss' and then re-texture all affected areas. According to him this may or may not work and if it doesn't the ceiling drywall may have to be replaced!!! I'm not a happy camper.

I viewed these homes when they were in Coburg and loved them
Mel Goguey from Chiloquin, OR
Our Fuqua home is great. I gave up buying site built over 20 years ago, tired of fighting with contractors. I'v toured manfactured home factories from GA,AZ CA and OR. My only wish, a steeper roof pitch and a metal roof.
jimmy foster from crescent city ca.
It is a beautiful house but they cannot get anything right,wrong size for the icebox ,wronk size for the washer dryer. we had water leaks and gas leaks and they put in the wrong size sliding doors.the plumbing was all messed up.All of the sky lights leaked and had to be replaced. They installed them wrong. The workmanship was like the good guys were on the right side and the bad guys were on the left side,different workmanship from one side to the other side.Heater was not installed right so it cost us extra to fix it when it filled full of water, all the drain vents filled full of water because of being installed wrong. The service was horrible the management in bend is not responsive to your problems. If it was not for the local dealer we would have been in real trouble. The manager and the head salemen made a site visitafter several calls and threats of law suite for all ther mistakes in building the home.Very beautiful home but with lots of fightingto make it right.
Janet Phinick from San Jose, CA
We have been in the home for 18 months now. People stop and stare at the home in amazement. They are shocked to hear that it is a "modular home". We are so pleased we waiter for the Sisters II model to come out so we could make it work for our family. We are so pleased that the dealer allowed us great latitude with the design when we finally ordered the home. Now that we have broken it in, we realize that not only is the floor plan perfect for us, the structure is as solid as a site build home. We would do it again in a heartbeat. If you are looking at this model and live in an area with hot summers, make sure you get a 4 ton AC unit and a large house fan.
Daphne Schmitt from USA
I have lived in a Fuqua home for almost 3 years now. I love my home. We downsized when our kids all left to a wonderful floorplan that fits our lifestyle better. Our home is far from looking like a mobile home or even an average home. We used as many wonderful options that Fuqua had to offer such as Corian & Silestone countertops, huge windows and 8'sliding glass doors to capture our beautiful view, large walk in closets and pantry, large jetted bathtub, fireplaces and more. After the home was set-up, we added heated tile floors, granite countertops in the Kitchen and more. We started construction in January and moved in to our new home in June. We added a 3 car garage, circular driveway and huge deck to our home. We feel we made a great investment buying a Fuqua Home. Wish I could add a photo!

I can't get them to do the repairs they say they will do the first year. Shattered window. Broken off shower handle. No water out side. Yes ther is more.
JACK POIRIER from MARYSVILLE WA
PURCHASED A FUQUA HOME IN 2004, HAD NO FEWER THAN 16 DOCUMENTED FACTORY DEFECTS AND AT LEAST 10 ADDITIONAL PROBLEMS WITH THE DEALER (SHOWCASE HOMES PUYALLUP WA). ALL ITEMS WERE COMMUNICATED TO THE DEALER WITH MODERATE SATISFACTION BUT MOST WERE FIXED BY ME. THE FACTORY HAS NEVER RESPONDED. REPORTED TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU AND THE STATE ATTY GENERAL. THE LAST STRAW: THE HOME IS NOW 4 YEARS OLD AND THE ENTIRE ROOF IS BEING REPLACED ($15,000). THE FACTORY DID NOT INSTALL THE ROOFING MATERIAL CORRECTLY, THE SKYLIGHT WAS NOT INSTALLED CORRECTLY AND THE FLASHING WAS IMPROPERLY INSTALLED, CONSEQUENTLY THE ROOF LEAKED INTO BOTH THE KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM, THE SUB ROOF WAS ROTTED AND SEVERAL SQUARE FEET NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A QUALITY BUILT HOME, KEEP LOOKING!!!

I'm in the process of buying a lot in Modoc County and visited a Fuqua dealer in Klamath Falls and checked out the construction frist hand. It's excellent with alot of different options for upgrades. I want a small, energy efficient home without feeling closed in. The ceilings are sloped and yet not so high as to waste energy. The fixtures, doors, windows, floors, and walls were well made. These homes are placed on the property complete. The agent at High Desert was friendly, helpful, and gave me a list of items I need to do as well as a sturdy copy of the floor plan I'm interested in which will fit the long narrow lot perfectly. It's for my retirement so I want to simplify things. With a small deck, awning, and upgraded window trim it should be perfect for a colder climate. I intend to proceed and remember that the internet with all its convienances is no substitute for checking out a major purchase in person, not to mention a little old fashioned hand shake with a real person. It's Oregon and they still do things in a country fashion and that suits me just fine.
Rob H. from Washington State
We've lived in the Metolius Lodge by Fuqua since 1998. While we've done some after market cosmetic, interior upgrades, the core of the home is still "Fuqua". So far so good, it's a tight little home that doesn's cost us a fortune to keep comfortable in. The only problem we have has occured in the last 2 years where c couple of the windows are failing. These are the most frequently use windows and it appears the argon seal has failed. They are fogging up. I would encourage Fuqua to upgrade their windows if they haven't since '98. We would also encourage buyers who select wood siding to order it natural (don't let them stain it). We did this so we could apply Sikkens Cetol 23 to the bare, quarter-sawn pine siding. It's such a soft wood, we found it needs the solids in Sikkens Cetol 23 formula in our rainy climate.
Janet Phinick from SanJose, CA
We recently purchased a 2 story Fuqua home and will be moving in soon. From what we have observed in the homes set up at the dealer, they appear to be much more than a glorified mobile home (as stated by the editor). We lived in a Mobile home and they are a world apart in construction, design elements, and curb appeal. The cost savings are amazing and well worth the "sacrafice". I am looking forward to living in this upscale alternative.
