Manis Custom Builders is a company that truly evolved from the manufactured housing industry. Established by Joe Manis in May, 2002, it is the result of over thirty years of experience in modular home construction. In 1972, Joe and three friends started R-Anell Homes in Denver, NC, constructing mainly single and doublewide modular homes in a rapidly growing market. Joe sold his interest in 1983 to start Crestline Homes concentrating on modular or system building of traditional homes.

A recognized leader in the manufactured housing industry, Joe Manis started Manis Custom Builders in order to concentrate on quality modular homes with custom features that until now were only found in traditionally built homes. Manis Custom Builders is able to do the quality work that clients want in their new homes as well provide unsurpassed customer involvement in the design and building processes. This is all done under one roof in their facility in Maxton, NC. Joe states that many clients do not understand that when building a modular home, it is never subjected to the natural elements that plaque traditional contractors. Therefore, the lumber in your home never gets wet during construction and your home is completed on schedule without weather delays, saving you both time and money.

Building quality homes is a joint effort at Manis Custom Buidlers.Over one hundred fifty craftsman are dedicated to making your home their number one concern. Many of these craftsman have worked with Joe Manis for years with his past companies. They know that he builds quality homes and they are proud to lend their workmanship. Joe Manis has also put together a management team that rivals any in the housing industry in terms of experience, leadership and dedication.

Manis Custom homes are built with integrity. Each project is done to exact specifications with exceptional attention to detail and solid workmanship. Standard nine-foot ceilings, optimum energy insulation packages, Low E energy efficient double hung windows and thirty five-year architectural shingles are everyday standards on a Manis Custom built home. These homes are also virtually maintenance free using vinyl clad windows and doors throughout. You can also custom design the exterior that is right for you. Whether you choose lifetime guaranteed vinyl siding or the beauty of site installed brick or stone, your Manis Custom home will reflect your individual lifestyle and personality.

Finally, your new home is also an investment; perhaps your largest, and you want to make sure you get your money's worth. At Manis Custom Builders the entire process is driven to deliver value to the customer for years to come.
