What is a modular home?
By now you have heard about modular homes, but you may still have questions as to what a modular home really is, or what sets them apart from a manufactured home.
It can be a common misconception to consider a modular home and a manufactures home one in the same. In actuality, there are many significant differences. While modular homes do bear some similarity to the manufactured home process (as they are built in a manufacturing facility in assembly line fashion) that is largely where the similarity ends. In fact, our modular homes have the same architectural look and appeal as the highest quality “traditional home" constructed on-site, while offering more flexibility at a significantly lower cost. There are innumerable benefits to making the smart decision to purchase a modular home. Consider several facts that prove to you why a modular home is the best choice for you:
- Exceptional quality and pricing
- Manufacturing factory process means you will have a more structurally sound home, built to exacting standards
- Up to 30% more materials used in the building process than “traditional” homes built “on site”
- Customizing your home to meet your family’s needs is affordable and easy!
- Energy efficient, which translates to monthly savings on your utility bills!
- Fast yet reliable construction
- Vast selection of upgrades and amenities
- Shorter construction time period: Modular homes are delivered to the job site at least 90% complete, so total construction time is greatly reduced, which means you can move in to your new home sooner!
- Because modular homes are built in a controlled, indoor environment, delays due to inclement weather are avoided.
- The secure environment ensures protection from construction site theft, which is becoming a frequent problem in on site built homes, resulting in added costs and delays.
