What Is Modular Home Construction?

Many associate a modular home with a mobile home, or a home that can be towed. This can't be further from the truth.

Modular homes, also called prefab or pre-fabricated homes, feature pieces specially built in a factory. These pieces are transported to your site, where they are constructed together. The result is a beautiful home, one that is indistinguishable from those homes that are built from the ground up on your property.

Modular Home Construction: Quick and Convenient

Anyone who has ever worked on a building project knows just how long it can take for the skeleton of the building to actually appear on the site. Unexpected material shortages, issues with plans and, of course, inclement weather can all bring long, inconvenient delays. Modular home factories, however, offer controlled environments that protect your building materials from nature's elements and, ultimately, unexpected delays.

Our state-of-the-art factory is designed specifically to make the construction of your modulart home's different elements as efficient as possible. In fact, the factory construction time is as short as seven days, with the full installation and associated works, such as plumbing and electrical installation, completed within three months. That gives you a new home, ready to live in, in less time than it can take for conventional builders to finish the walls.

In addition to time delays, with traditional homebuilding your property becomes a major construction area, leading to long periods of disruption and work. You also run the risk of damaging your surrounding landscaping. By contrast, modular home builders do as much of the construction work as possible off-site.

Modular Home Builders Offer Energy Efficiency

Modular home builders don't just offer convenience and a quicker solution to traditional home building; they also offer the best in energy efficiency. From top-of-the-line wall and ceiling insulation to argon-filled glass windows, our modular homes come with a plethora of energy-saving features.

Modular home construction in itself can also be environmentally friendly. There is minimal waste and minimal effect on the area surrounding the site of the home.
