What are modular homes?
Modular homes are stick-built to the same building codes as a site-built home. However, a modular home is constructed in a climate-controlled, environmentally-protected production facility using exact and efficient construction systems. Modular is simply a construction process, not a type of house.
Why build a modular home?
Building in a controlled environment with a team of skilled craftsmen has many advantages. The structures are stronger and more durable; building materials and finished modules are protected from weather-related damage that can lead to costly rework; and modules are continually inspected to ensure quality and that appropriate residential or commercial building codes are met.
With approximately 70 percent of the structure completed in the factory, modular buildings involve fewer onsite inspections and have less exposure to bad weather. Fewer subcontractors are needed, construction noise is minimal and a lower carbon footprint are just a few of the other benefits.
What are the financial advantages?
Modular homes typically save tens of thousands of dollars when compared apples-to-apples with site-built homes. Building a modular home can reduce construction time by more than 35 percent, getting you into your new home faster so you can enjoy it longer. That means savings on interest paid on construction loans.
“Going over budget” is virtually unheard of in the modular industry.
Modular homes are viewed as traditional homes when financing and applying for building permits. When modular homes are appraised, the value is determined by what other site-built homes have sold for in the area. The home equity of a well-built modular home will continue to grow in value over time. Upgrades can also be added like sun rooms, gas fireplaces, porches, and garages.
