I wanted to know if there are any disadvantages in modular homes as compared to stick & frame built homes. I mainly wanted to know things that can be inherent in the modular design that may be a drawback. Thanks.

You need only to look at jud.ct.gov site and put in Probuilt Homes. This is a prominent modular company. Look at memorandum of decisions. Large lawsuit. Had to replace the siding and roof. Rake boards had sections missing. Inferior materials throughout a 2000 ft colonial. Over $50,000 in repairs. More for lawyer fees. The list goes on. I won, for $80,0000. Probuilt had two big-shot lawyers. Please don't go modular. You have to pay them in full as soon as the home is delivered and you have no recourse except through a lawyer. Even with a favorable judgment these creeps never paid me a dime. Too many pictures to post but this is one of humps on the roof. I also had dips.
