Often Rochester Homes receives a questions from potential customers and below is a recent example of one that was posed to us.

 “I’m curious to hear what exactly sets you apart from the other manufacturers and why we should choose to go with you guys.”

Below is how we responded.

Thanks for your inquiry. We appreciate your reaching out to us and for considering Rochester Homes in achieving your homebuilding dream. The underlying premise to your question is astute. You are correct, not all companies producing modular homes are equal. There are many things that make us different. I will just hit on a few.

Family owned since 1972                                 

Since its founding in 1972, the company has been owned and passed down through generations of the Anderson family. Being a family owned enterprise, accountability is reflected in what we do and how we conduct ourselves. There are no boards or shareholders. Decisions are made solely on the basis of what is in the best for our employees and customers. 

True Modular Home

Rochester Homes builds a true modular home. Many of our competitors build both the HUD code mobile product, as well as modular homes. To save money and to consolidate purchasing, our competitors regularly use the same standard offerings in both of their product lines. Those products may not be residential grade, name-brand products.

In contrast, Rochester Homes uses only name-brand, fully vetted building materials. Products include Tyvek house wrap, Owens Corning shingles, Corian quartz countertops, Therma-Tru doors, Georgia Pacific siding, Merillat cabinetry and Delta Faucets, among others. 

Quality Assurance

Quality is taken seriously at Rochester Homes. The quality control process begins with the inspection of received materials. Wood is measured for moisture levels, as well as  culled for imperfections. Every home undergoes a rigid set of quality control inspections at every stage in the construction process. This includes everything from framing to final finishing details, including electrical and plumbing. No home moves to the next station until it passes rigorous inspection. Oftentimes our homes surpass the state building code requirements. These requirements are overseen by a third-party independent inspection agency that inspects each home as it is built.

Good luck on your homebuilding journey and  let us know if you have any other questions.

Best Regards,

The Rochester Team
