Modular homes are built in factories. There are numerous advantages to building a home in a factory rather than on-site. Factories are able to purchase enormous quantities of materials, which allows them to take advantage of large volume discounts, thereby lowering the cost of materials per home. Similarly, labour can be carried out much more efficiently in a factory setting, resulting in more cost-effective labour; assembly line processes allow workers to complete the same types of work on multiple homes in considerably less time than they’d be able to if they were travelling from site to site. For these reasons, factory-built modular homes are more affordable than their traditional site-built counterparts.
Modular homes are built in a modern controlled environment, and they are precision engineered for a lifetime of trouble-free structural durability. Quality control is maintained by constant inspection throughout the construction process.
To ensure a safe and secure trip to your property, modular homes are built with extra care, and with the highest quality materials. For example, there is typically 20% to 30% more lumber used in framing your home, and our manufacturer uses glue in addition to nail or screw components during construction.
• Peace of Mind
Buying a modular home gives you peace of mind – you wont have to worry about:
“I need more money”
The homeowner’s worst nightmare – the job is half finished and your builder tells you he’s way over budget and needs more money to complete the job. Factory-built houses come at a guaranteed price without cost overruns.
The Vanishing Builder
Everyone knows someone who’s had this problem – just don’t let it happen to you too. You don’t want an unfinished house slowly rotting away in the rain or snow. When you buy a modular home, you get your finished product ready for immediate installation.
The pre-soaked house
Maybe you like your jeans pre-washed, but you don’t want your house to come that way! A site-built house open to the elements can cause your wood to warp or swell — problems you’ll never get rid of in a lifetime of ownership. Modular homes are built in controlled environments under the factory roof and shipped in weatherproofed wrapping.
The unexpected, un-inspected house
Often times you don’t really know what quality you’re getting with a site-built house. Modular homes are thoroughly checked out before they leave the factory. A quality control process provides 100% assurance that your home has been inspected for code compliance and workmanship.
• Speedy Turnaround
On average, a home will be built in the factory within two to three months. Once your home is placed on its foundation, final completion takes two to three weeks. This schedule allows you to move more quickly, and knowing when your new home will be ready helps you to plan your move more easily.
• Lower Home Ownership Costs
Repair bills can really add up. Modular homes are built in a modern, controlled environment, using high quality materials. They are precision engineered for a lifetime of trouble-free structural durability. A well-built house is a home that is easier and less costly to maintain.
• Greater Energy Efficiency
With current energy prices rising almost daily, energy efficiency has become an extremely important issue to think about when buying a new home. By using additional insulation, and precision building techniques, the modular home is super energy efficient. This enables you to save money on your monthly utility bills, and adds to the home’s resale value as well.
• Design Your Dream Home
Modular home manufacturers have many different design plans for you to choose from. You can make modifications, or even design you own house, and the factory engineers will work with your Professional Housing Consultant to make the home of your dreams a reality.
• Mortgage Lenders Want Your Business
Modular homes are becoming more popular, and there are an increasing number of financial institutions eager to write new loans.
• Resale Value
From the outside your home might look just like a normal house, but after all those years, quality shows through. Modular homes are precision built at the factory, and they’re built to last. Your home requires less maintenance, and your energy bills are less than your neighbours’. When you sell your home, you’ll be glad you bought a modular in the first place.
