(Frequently Asked Questions)
Can I custom design my new home?
Yes. Every homeowner has their own individual preferences and Regent will do everything possible within the confines of the required codes to accommodate those needs.
Can I buy my Regent home direct from the factory?
Regent only sells their homes through a network of independent retailers who provide the myriad of services that you require. This includes working with you to adapt the plan, select colors and options, arrange financing, assist with building permits, do site inspections, arrange delivery, perform the set up and installation and provide the warranty work that may be required.
How long do I have to wait from the time I order my home until it is delivered?
If you choose a “stock” home from a retailer’s lot, this may happen within days. However, if you choose to factory order your home, the time will depend on how many homes are on order (backlogged) and the number of custom items in your home. Generally you can expect 6 to 8 weeks, however we always do our best to accommodate your needs when possible.
Where do I find out about available land or a Land Lease Community to place my home?
Contact a Regent Homes retailer in your location. They are familiar with the parks in your area.
Can I place a modular home on my own building lot?
Usually, yes. Occasionally there may be restrictions, so checking with the local municipality or your Regent Home retailer is important.
What is the warranty on a Regent home?
SRI provides a one year manufacturer’s warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship. Years two through ten is a structural warranty provided by Pacific Warranty in British Columbia and Progressive Warranty elsewhere. This warranty covers the major structural components of your home. Additionally, the manufacturers of some items in the home provide their own warranty, eg. Appliances, hot water heater, furnace, shingles, etc.
How do I arrange financing for my Regent home?
Your Regent Home System retailer will be able to assist you with financing.
What about energy efficiency?
Some energy efficient items are standard on Regent Homes including 2x6 walls, Low E/Argon windows and High Efficiency furnaces. Other energy efficient items can be added such as tankless hot water systems, upgraded insulation, casement windows and HRV systems.
Can a factory built home be placed on a basement or crawl space foundation?
Both manufactured and modular homes can be placed on a basement or crawl space. The specifications for doing so vary from region to region, but both are possible. To assist the retailer and setup crew with the design of the foundation you decide to use, foundation layout drawings can be provided.
Are SRI homes affordable?

What’s the difference between a manufactured home and a modular home?
Our manufactured and modular homes are both built in the same quality-controlled factory environment, but the basic difference between the two is the building code to which they are constructed. Manufactured homes are built to comply with the CSA-240 standard while modular homes are built to the CSA A277 standard, which essentially is the provincial building code where the home is to be located.
Can I take a tour of your manufacturing facility?
