Advanced Processes and New Shopping Tech On Display in Omaha
Construction processes and technologies that have greatly improved the home buying and home building journey to combat the affordable housing crisis in the U.S.
“In a time when the average price of a new home is well out of reach for most American families, our building process offers a disruptive innovation that provides a future solution to affordable housing,” Clayton CEO Kevin Clayton said.
“Today’s homebuyers shop for homes in a much different way than they have in the past, and we are always working toward answering those evolving customer needs,” he said. “Though our company will continue to change and innovate, our commitment to providing all types of quality, stylish homes at an incredible value will never change.”
It’s A New Era for Manufactured Housing
High Quality Materials, Construction Practices in a Factory Near You
The company’s network of 40 building facilities, supply centers and transportation vehicles spread across the country supply windows, wall boards, roof trusses and cabinets that are integrated into Clayton homes.
Clayton Built® prefabricated homes are constructed indoors in climate‐controlled building facilities. This off‐site construction process offers many benefits, including lower material and construction costs, faster build time, recycling and better quality control.
Building with materials and brand name appliances purchased in bulk provides savings on a grand scale.
Ultimately, homes are built more efficiently, and the savings are passed along to the customer.
This year, Clayton will display several consumer tech tools to improve the home shopping experience.
