About Us
At Clayton, we're building homes a different way.

Our Story

It all started with a family and a dream.

In 1966, the Clayton family began its journey with the first home center and the idea of making homeownership attainable for everyone across America. And we’ve come a long way over the last 50 years. What started as just one location has grown to over 350 home centers offering a variety of housing options to fit families’ needs. Clayton now builds and sells manufactured homes, modular homes, traditional site built homes, CrossMod™ homes, Designer Cottages, PMRVs, college dormitories, military barracks and apartments.

Our Mission

Opening doors to a better life.

Our passion is about more than just building homes — it’s about making the world a better place for our customers, communities and future generations. Our more than 18,000 team members are all united around a common goal: to make the dream of homeownership possible for more families.

Why Clayton

From our family to yours.

The heart of a home is where family gathers and memories are made, and we’re proud to be a part of that for our customers. Every Clayton Built® home is designed with your family in mind, from quality and durability to design and efficiency. We are passionate about building a home where your family can create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Strength & Durability

Built on a strong foundation, to last a lifetime or two.

Our advanced construction process has been carefully engineered to give you a strong, beautiful home from the foundation to the roof, and everything in between. When it comes to getting the job done right, there are no shortcuts. Over the last 60 years, we’ve done more than build homes. We’ve transformed how they’re built in the first place, from our innovative off-site building process to the quality construction materials we use.

The Clayton Built® Standard

When you buy a Clayton Built® home, you can trust it’s constructed on a foundation of strength, quality and durability that has truly been built to last.

Every Clayton Built® home goes through a series of rigorous checkpoints and internal inspections that test electrical outlets, exterior quality, plumbing lines, interior details and more, so you know you can rely on each part of your home, from the inside out.

Our manufactured homes are built to federal HUD code requirements and our modular homes are built state and local building requirements. This include specific construction and design elements depending on the wind and thermal zone where the home will be located.
