Technological advancements are improving our everyday lives. The way homes are built today is no exception. Modern home building is modular. Modular homes replace the on-site building method that is often plagued with problems. These problems range from construction delays due to inclement weather. Decreased quality caused by each piece by piece step being left open to the elements. These and other problems combine to decrease finished quality, extend building times, and increase projected costs. Modular homes built in an enclosed factory setting solve these problems and more.
One of the most popular advantages of a modular home is the shorter amount of time between ground breaking and occupancy of your new home. Owners are often able to move in to their new homes in just a fraction of the time of a comparable site-built home.
Building homes in a factory setting offers a number of advantages. Protection from the elements during the entire building process in addition to consistent quality construction and more thorough inspections. In addition the factory assembly process means each worker has been trained and is experienced to do a specific job and has become an expert in that one aspect of construction
Many factors contribute to the increased cost efficiency of modular homes over site-built homes. Modular home producers are able to purchase materials in bulk offering lower material costs. The controlled indoor environment prevents building delays due to the weather and offers greater protection from material theft often experienced during on-site building.
The modular home construction process allows easier access, identification and filling of gaps around pipes, electrical outlets, windows and doors. This makes modular homes more energy efficient providing lower heating and cooling costs to the homeowner.
