Personal Reviews of Durabilt Custom Homes / MSI Plus
Steve from Albany, New York
We love our MSI home! We built our MSI home in 2004 and the house has held up great. It was a pleasure to work with the professionals at MSI. Everyone from the sales team to the set crew were attentive to every detail and concerned about making sure we had an excellent product.
Patty from Flanders, NJ
We used MSI many years ago and had no problems and the home is still fantastic. No issues at all. The setting crew they selected were really good and that makes all the difference. They worked with us during the design process and really went out of their way to make the home customized to our liking. We continue to receive many compliments on our home today.
M F Gianotto from New Jersey
Durabuilt homes are at or above the IBC codes. This means that there homes are as will constructed as a on site stick built home. For many years I have built stick home and now I will ONLY sell Durabuilt Home. I am a Licensed New Jersey State Construction Code Official and inspector.Call me at 732-247-4000
bridget h from new york
beware msi does not give you what they claim i bought an msi, everything was uneven, there were so many structural mistakes and violations, they told me to fix it myself and they would re-pay me. they never did, i have to fix everything. the counters swelled with water, the door knobs broke , the pluming behind the pedestal sink was pvc piping covered in blue glue so many issues, and the biggest one yet, is the house is covered with glue when they make the house, and the house smells terrible and gases off forever, don't buy
John from PA
I have heard wonderful things about the new MSI Plus. We had a factory tour to check out the product and we would highly recommend buying an MSI home. The set crews are saying it is a good product also and they see how they are built and how they fit together. :)
Dawn G from Danville Pa
I would like to say how pleased I am with the modular addition that was built by MSI. With the family growing and no room to build out we contacted MSI and they put usin touch with a builder. After seen our lot we decided to go up and the attention that was given to us by the builder and the Company made our little ranch home a two story which doubled our square footage and with a price that fit our budget.
Madicoa Associates from bloomsburg
I have been building modular homes for the last 6 years and have found that the quality of these homes that MSI build is very good. I don't know who Mr Madison builder was that ordered the home for him but I have had great response with any service issue that where asked for. With the new changes made at the factory I have seen the quality at its best. I would recommend buying a home from MSI and using a good builder when doing so.
Michael Madison from Vermont
This modular home company puts out a below average quality home.uneven and squeeky floors very poor taping job that is very noticable in the ceilins throuout the home. I had one box that was 2 inches longer than the rest.The only good thing was the price.Due your research and dont go off price,with this company you get what you paid for.
Joyce Carnall from Mount Pleasant Mills, Pa.
Our first experience with a modular home. Couldn't have asked for better service and attention to detail. Helped us almost custom design our home. I would highly recommend MSI.
