What exactly are modular homes?
A modular home is 80-90% built in a climate controlled factory. The sections of the home are then transferred to the home-buyer’s property and assembled on-site.
Because modular homes are also known as prefabricated homes, it’s common for them to have the stereotype of holding a lower quality when compared to stick built homes. This is far from the truth, as modular homes are constructed under the same safety building codes as site-built homes, and are found to be inspected more often, both by the manufacturer and by our staff of trained representatives.
Why Buy a Modular Home?
Modular homes are a perfect option for families interested in diving into the homeownership process in a timely and affordable manner. Many opt for a modular home due to the building process being done in a facility, preventing weather delays and uncontrollable elements. Fewer delays allows the home to be completed faster.
Before the modular home can leave the facility it must first have a final inspection by a third party to pass the requirements of a facility-built home. Safety is the highest concern and is taken very seriously while building a modular home, as this is where families will gather for years to come.
Once completed, it is almost impossible to tell a modular home from a traditionally built home. The aesthetics are as beautiful as any custom home design and our floorplan selections offer tremendous customization and personal choice.
There are many benefits of choosing to build a modular home, such as:
- Quality construction
- Reduced building time
- Quick move-in
- Lower cost
- Passes inspections and regulations
- Energy Efficient
What is the Difference Between Modular Homes and Manufactured Homes?
Modular homes are often confused with manufactured homes. What is the difference between the two? The easiest way to distinguish the difference between modular and manufactured home is the permanence. Modular homes are finalized on a permanent residence and are not intended to be relocated. Manufactured homes are built with attached wheels, allowing the home to become mobile and to easily be transferred to a new location. Manufactured homes hold different building codes when compared to modular homes and often cost less.
