Canbury Homes Announces Web Site for Custom Modular Homes in Southern Maine

April 08, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Wells, Maine — David Patterson, owner of Canbury Homes, has announced that his company now offers a web site at to give the public free access to information about turn-key, custom modular homes in the Portland and Yarmouth areas, and throughout York and Cumberland Counties.

"Because over 1,000 modular homes are built in Maine each year, we decided to provide the public with free information to help them learn about modular homes. There are many misconceptions about modular houses, and most people do not know what to look for in this type of construction. We are hopeful that our web site helps consumers to become knowledgeable," explained Patterson.

Some consumers are already well informed about modular construction and they know what they are looking for. Patterson's web site at helps those home buyers learn how to select the right builder, and even gives guidance on how a home buyer can be their own general contractor.

Others are completely uninformed, and Patterson said his web site is particularly helpful to them.

"Consumers who do not know anything about modular can easily make a wrong decision and end up with problems. Many people think that modular means cheap. That is completely wrong. Unfortunately some people buy a double wide mobile home and think they are getting a modular home. In this market you can get a really nice modular home that will appreciate in value, or you can end up with a mobile home that looks nice but will depreciate in value. Hopefully people will check the information on our web site to avoid these misconceptions," said Patterson.

The difference from one modular home to another may come down to the dealer who sells it. Many sell a "cookie-cutter" home while only a few customize each house to the wishes of the buyer.

Canbury Homes was founded by Patterson in 2003 and continues to be a local, family-run business. The company is focused on quality custom homes using modular construction and design. The process enables home owners to obtain higher quality for a lower price than traditional construction, according to Patterson.

"Generally, capes, ranches, colonials and other traditional style homes are much less expensive with modular. The entire process is faster, and the quality is higher than with traditional construction," explained Patterson.

Home buyers who are unfamiliar with modular construction may be surprised when they see samples of custom homes. The company has available building lots, or can construct a home on a lot obtained by the buyer. Information on financing is also available on the web site.

"We want people to see for themselves that modular is the best type of construction for both quality and savings. I think most people have an idea what they want, and need just a bit of guidance. Often times they are looking for a little reassurance that they are making the right choice," said Patterson.
