Words from Schult Homes
Innovation in the 1930's and 40's
The early Schult models, built in the 1930s, were more practical than plush, containing such necessities as coal heating stoves, portable water tanks, sofa beds and dinette chairs.
By the 1940s, more luxury models were produced including a 50-foot portable home produced for the King of Egypt.
Schult led the industry in revolutionary designs. Steel frames, forced-air heating, built-in electrical appliances, and complete interior plumbing all appeared first in a Schult home.
When the U.S. Government needed emergency housing during World War II, Schult was the brand of choice. Out of necessity, a new product was born — the sectional home. More than 2,000 of these homes composed of 8-foot x 24-foot sections were provided for workers at the Tennessee Valley Authority.
After the war, young families and retirees searching for low-cost, yet roomy housing began to discover the convenience of living in a Schult home.
Growth in the 1950's, 60's, and 70's
In the 1950s, Schult Homes began to include modern dinette sets, fluorescent lighting, Venetian blinds, custom-made bedroom dressers, modern plumbing, and shower doors.
Superior production techniques such as "uni-strength" construction were introduced in the 1960s.
The 1970s saw the addition of Schult's popular front kitchen floor plan.
Stability in the 1980's and 90's
In the 1980s, pioneering advances made Schult Homes competitive with site-built homes in both appearance and construction standards. Schult emphasized maintenance-free features and energy-saving designs.
Schult was at the leading edge of such developments as tape and textured painted drywall, natural wood cabinetry, architectural windows, and modular housing.
A wide variety of spacious floor plans, cathedral ceilings, and solid construction all helped to continue the strength of the Schult name and reputation throughout the nineties.
Opportunity in the New Millennium
As Schult enters the new millennium, the brand continues to be tastefully designed with today's families in mind. Current homes feature walk-in closets, efficient kitchens, luxury baths and functional living areas.
Designs have changed over the years, but one thing has remained the same — the name Schult is still synonymous with "quality" in the housing industry.
This dedication to quality and customer satisfaction is what will continue to propel the Schult brand into the 21st century and beyond.
Words From Hamilton Homes
There are many things that set apart a Hamilton-built home, things like recessed LED lights, stainless steel vent hoods, and fiberglass tubs and showers. But one of the very best features is one you might never ever really look at – the power rib metal roof. Why is a metal roof better than the traditional asphalt shingle roof? And what difference does it make in a home’s value and durability? We are glad you asked! Listed below are eight reasons why a metal roof will improve the quality of your home while enhancing its overall value. If you wonder where this information came from, then take a look at the complete article at the Metal Roof Buying Guide at www.MetalRoofing.systems. It will give you plenty of information about metal roofs and why they make such a difference in a home’s function and value.
Reason 1: The Power Rib Metal Roof is Built to Last
Metal roofs – like the Power Rib Metal Roof from Hamilton Home Builders – can often last for 50 years and often longer. This means that a typical metal roof will last about 3-7 times longer than a typical asphalt shingles roof, which usually needs to replaced every 12-17 years. That added life means less stress worrying about the roof and less money spent repairing or replacing it every decade or so.
Reason 2: A Metal Roof Keeps Things Cool
A metal roof’s surface reflects sunlight rather than absorbing. Much of the light and heat that pounds down on a traditional asphalt shingle roof from the sun above simply bounces off the metal roof.
Reason 3: Saving You Money…
Metal roofs can save you as much as 25% off your annual home energy bill.
Reason 4: Durable and Reliable
Metal roofs are both durable and reliable. They will not crack, rot, split, dry out or warp like other common roofing materials.
Reason 5: The Roof Is (Not) On Fire
Metal is non-combustible, so a metal roof will never catch on fire like other common roofing materials such as cedar or asphalt roofs.
Reason 6: Making You Money
Homes with a metal roof will typically have a 6% resale gain over homes with asphalt shingle roofs.
Reason 7: Lightning… What Lightning?
Even if lightning were to hit the roof of your home, the metal will safely dissipate the charge even if it is not grounded.
Reason 8: Saving You Money… Again!
Many insurance companies will reward you with a hefty discount if your home has a metal roof!
