Modular & Manufactured Home Companies In Your Area

A modular home is similar to a traditional home except that instead of being built on-site, construction begins in a factory. Sections of the house are built in an assembly line and then sections are taken by truck to the building site. The home is then completed on site.

When it comes to newly constructed houses, modular homes offer some real benefits including:

  • Lower Price: Modular homes tend to be more affordable than traditions homes. This is because much of the initial work takes place in a controlled environment - a factory without the complications of adverse weather. Work can also take place without the interruptions of inspectors visiting the site.
  • Speed: Modular homes can often be available within weeks of ordering them. They are typically built in 1/3 the time needed to construct a traditional site-built home. Some of the reasons this can happen include the fact that the construction in the factory can take place at the same time as site preparation. The process also eliminates any delays from "no-show" subcontractors that can occur with traditional home building.
  • Design Flexibility: There are hundreds of design possibilities when it comes to modular homes. A modular home builder near you can walk through all these options to help you select the home that meets your needs. While most companies offer a set collection of basic designs and layouts, many will also allow you to specify modifications and upgrades particularly when it comes to colors, carpeting, countertops, and fixtures.
  • Energy Efficiency: Modular homeowners typically pay less on their utility bills thanks to modern building techniques that incorporate energy efficient materials like high quality insulation and windows. Modular homes also typically have less air infiltration than traditional houses which is one of the largest causes of heat loss. Finally, the fact that these homes are constructed in a factory means that things like sealants can be applied in areas typically not accessible with traditional site-built homes - like behind, above, and underneath walls with electrical outlets.
