6 Reasons To Build Modular
Limitless design options and precision engineering with the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD); allows for customization in floor plans and elevations.
Built with the same architectural details as traditional construction, and typically built to exceed local codes, modular homes are indistinguishable from their site-built counterparts.
Modular homes are “greener” than site built homes because they are more tightly constructed, and thus more energy efficient.
Reduced air infiltration, tighter construction tolerances and the use of high performance windows reduce energy consumption, provide for a quieter home, and reduces moisture, and blocks bugs and rodents from entering the home.
Fixed pricing from the factory provides predictable costs, fewer change orders and no risky open ended allowances.
Planning is complete prior to the start of construction, preventing expensive cost overruns and material delays.
More efficient scheduling and construction sequences optimize quality control.
The controlled factory environment allows maximum year-round productivity, reducing building costs and optimizing workmanship due to ideal, indoor working conditions.
Modular construction is more regulated, requiring higher, and more frequent levels of inspection and quality control.
Materials are safely stored and secured, reducing the risk of mold, water damage, warping, vandalism or theft.
Site work can be completed while the house is being built.
Shorter construction time saves money on construction financing, alternative living costs, and storage expenses.
Built with 20% more lumber than a traditional site built home.
Built with more framing and more fastening materials to withstand the stress of being shipped on a truck and lifted by a crane. Modular homes are stronger than site built homes.
Built in a state-of-the-art controlled facility which integrates best practices, work flow, and full time skilled craftsmen dedicated to each project.
Wall, floor, and ceiling components are sized, assembled and aligned with laser precision.
Homes are built to national building code standards, which typically exceed local and state codes.
