The major difference between a modular home and a conventional home is the location where construction occurs. Modular homes are constructed in sections off-site and then transported to the site of the finished home. Virtually any home can be built in this way, by stacking and altering the sections for a fully customized building. Here are three reasons to consider building a modular home over a conventional site-built property:
The modular home building process eliminates the need for waiting for inclement weather to pass or for contractors to arrive on-site. Full-time professionals working in controlled indoor conditions can construct a modular home in as little as three months, though of course the total time will depend on the type of home being built. Construction is approximately 90% complete by the time the sections arrive at the building site, at which point it takes very little time to complete the assembly.
The costs incurred in building modular homes tend to be lower than in site-built properties. This is because assembly is handled efficiently in factory conditions, and the building materials can be purchased in bulk. Fewer inspections are required on-site as the materials are inspected at the factory during every phase of construction. The cost to the modular home owner can be reduced further by using environmentally-friendly materials, resulting in less waste and more efficient utilities.
Materials and Design
Modular sections are built in climate-controlled factories. This protects the materials from adverse conditions like weather or vandalism. The finished homes tend to be sturdier due to this process of safeguarding the materials. From traditional styles to highly modern buildings, or from small houses to mansions, modular homes can be also be customized and personalized to suit your needs.
Most conventional construction sites already use prefabricated components. Modular homes simply take this a few steps further, and the results can save you time, money, and hassle. An experienced modular home construction company can make your experience as uncomplicated as possible and ensure you have a superior quality home.
