Build a Sustainable Future

As a housing manufacturer, we recognize our responsibility to carefully manage and minimize our environmental impact in both the way we operate and in the homes we sell. Clayton builds homes with the future in mind - for our business, team members, homeowners and planet. Clayton homes are built with energy and water efficient materials and appliances that help homeowners save money on utilities while also conserving our planet’s resources. Through homebuilding innovations, new home technologies and philanthropic partnerships, we are aiming to meet the needs of our communities today while opening doors to a better future for generations to come.
