The best way to find out how something works is taking it apart piece by piece, then putting it back together again. That might be fine for a lawn mower, but we wouldn’t recommend doing it to an entire house. So just scroll to deconstruct this perfectly good home all the way down to its foundation.Scroll to begin
Our double-pane, insulated vinyl windows improve your home’s energy efficiency because they reduce the amount of energy lost by helping keep warm air in during the winter and out during the summer. Plus, they’re durable and require minimal maintenance.
We install energy-saving insulation, a durable vapor barrier and low maintenance siding to protect the structure of the home and help save on energy bills. Vinyl siding and house wrap are not used at all building locations and construction methods vary depending on geographic location.
Optional skirting – like brick, concrete, stone, stucco or vinyl – does more than make your house look beautiful. It stabilizes temperatures, defends against pests, and creates additional storage space.
Our exterior walls are built to be resistant to heat transfer, vibration forces and strong winds — keeping the worst weather at bay.
Our quality insulation generates a thermal shield that holds heat in, helps energy costs go down and keeps your home comfortable all year long.
We fortify our roofs with fiberglass shingles, a waterproof barrier, high-performance R-33 insulation and a truss system that’s seriously strong. Some vaulted ceiling homes may have a max value of R30 roof insulation.
Our interior walls are built with quality drywall or wallboards. Which, if you’re into this kind of thing, you know it’s the good stuff. In fact, our walls meet and often exceed federal standards for moisture content and performance.
Our homes are designed with contemporary floor plans that accentuate the natural flow of the home to make rooms feel bigger and families feel closer together.
Tile. Hardwood. Vinyl. Laminate. Carpet. We have almost every modern flooring option out there available as either standard or an upgrade option — so you can infuse your home with your own style and have something that’ll stand up to the test of everyday life.
A natural wood cabinet with glass inlays isn’t just a place to put stuff, it’s kitchen character. Our carpenters have taken their craft to the next level — turning kitchen cabinets into conversation pieces.
Every component of a Clayton Built® home has been optimized for strength and stability. And the foundation is no exception. Many of our homes have a foundation made from a system of steel I-beams, cross-members and outriggers. This infrastructure is built to last.
We’ve engineered a pier and beam system with stabilization plates and steel straps that can be used to anchor the main I-beams to the ground. Not all homes use a plate and strap anchoring method. Other types of foundations used are slab foundation, basement foundation and crawl space foundation.
