Modular Home Additions vs. Stick Built Additions

If you’re thinking about adding an addition to your home, you might have come across the phrase “modular home additions.” This type of home addition is different than a stick built home addition, and it offers plenty of advantages that a stick built one does not have. Carbide Construction specializes in home additions in Vienna, Arlington and the surrounding areas, and we wanted to take the time to discuss the differences between these types of home additions.

One of the main advantages of modular home additions is that they generally do not have the same scheduling delays as a stick built addition. So if the weather is not cooperating, your modular home addition is still being worked on because it is being built in a factory. But a stick built addition will have to be postponed until the weather clears up and the builders can start to work again.

But you might be wondering about local building codes and regulations. Do modular home additions adhere to the same codes and regulations as their stick built counterparts? The answer to that is a resounding “yes!”

Modular home additions are held to the same building and code standards as stick built additions. So you are not sacrificing safety or quality when you have one of these additions put onto your home.

Modular home additions also offer another huge benefit: they are generally over-built to withstand the ride from the factory to your home.

And if you are concerned about the environmental impact of a new home addition, then you definitely need a modular home addition. These types of additions are more eco-friendly because of the way they are built.

Finally, modular home additions do not take as long to build as stick built.
