Who They Are
Clayton Homes have been in business since 1956 and have forged a name as an industry leader. They have worked to make homeownership more affordable, comfortable, and sustainable for the average American. Their mission, and the quality of their homes, have led to Clayton Homes becoming the largest builder of modular homes in the United States.
In 2003, Clayton Homes joined Berkshire Hathaway, where they have continued to grow and take other companies in under their brand, including Chafin Communities, River Birch, and Schult.
One of the biggest ways in which Clayton-built homes have led the industry is through environmental sustainability. They have continuously improved their facilities and built practices to reduce waste, conserve resources, and minimize their carbon footprint.
Clayton Homes facilities are ENERGY STAR certified for their efficiency both in build practices and in the homes they produce. Clayton is also ISO14001 certified, which means they follow a set of international standards for environmental management in the conservation of resources. More recently, Clayton has led the way in becoming LEED certified, which verifies its practices to reduce its carbon footprint.
Clayton Manufactured Homes
Clayton Homes was created to make homeownership affordable, and they have continued to make that dream a reality for thousands of people. While the cost of site-built homes has continued to increase over the years, Clayton Homes have remained cost-effective.
As one of the world’s largest builders of manufactured and modular homes, Clayton has a wide range of choices available to its customers. From single wides to duplexes, with choices including kitchen islands, front porches, and garages, Clayton has the manufactured home you’re looking for.
Efficient and Sustainable
Clayton Homes are built to ENERGY STAR standards, which means they have improved insulation, window quality, and heating and cooling units. This leads to lower utility costs, better climate control, and a reduced environmental impact for the homeowner.

One of the oldest manufactured home companies in the industry, Schult has been in operation since 1934. They have led the way in numerous innovations, such as steel frames and built-in electrical appliances. During World War II, Schult was chosen to provide emergency workforce housing to American factory workers. In the 1950s they built a manufactured home for the King of Egypt.
Schult’s remarkable story continued to evolve when in 2004 they joined Berkshire Hathaway and became a part of the Clayton Homes family. Their current homes continue to lead the way in comfort, affordability, and sustainability now that they are Clayton Built.
