About Modular Homes
WHAT IS A MODULAR HOME?
Modular Homes are comprised of a number of different boxes, or modules, that are individually manufactured, then transported on-site to where they are assembled into a cohesive structure. Jigs and templates produce precise structures resulting in tighter joints, straighter lines, stronger connections and materials cut with a higher degree of accuracy. The components of a modular home are built in an environmentally-controlled factory setting where quality control is monitored at every station in the production line.
Modular Homes are built using 20 - 30% more framing lumber than site built homes to ensure secure transportation to the site. The materials utilized are often of higher quality than that used by a stick builder, and they are stored indoors until needed, protecting them from exposure to the elements. All homes are designed and reviewed by a Certified Engineer or other Third Party to ensure the home is built to meet the specific code requirements for the area in which it is being placed.
SOME OF THE ADVANTAGES OF MODULAR CONSTRUCTION INCLUDE:
·INHERENTLY ‘GREEN’: On average only 2% material waste generation.
·ENERGY EFFICIENT: Most modular homes consume 15% less energy than the typical site built home.
·REDUCED SITE RISKS: Protection from weather, theft, vandalism, mildew and mold.
·FAST COMPLETION: Typically built and finished in less than 120 days from the start of production.
·MORE DURABLE: Built to be transported and lifted into position by a crane.
·MORE CONTROL: Factory production means enhanced supervision and a highly dependable timeline.
·INCREASED QUALITY: Third party inspectors and engineers are engaged throughout the process.
