Carbide Construction of Washington DC

There are few investments more important than buying a new home. It may very well be the biggest purchase you ever make. Traditional homes can take what seems like forever to build. Then you have to go through closing, inspections and the whole nine yards. Why not cut the wait in half with a modular home or modular addition?

With modular homes (known commonly as prefabricated or manufactured homes), you can stop the waiting and get in your new Washington DC home faster. Since 2002, Carbide Construction has been offering these construction wonders, and we’ve aligned with Excel Homes, one of the East Coast’s largest modular companies.

Here are some quick facts about modular homes:

  • Eco Friendly: Modular construction is friendly to the environment because there are very few materials wasted or thrown away. Since modulars are built in a factory setting, there is complete control over what is tossed, no noise pollution and less land disturbance.
  • Not a Mobile Home: Mobile homes are subject to different building code standards. Your modular home will be akin to a site or traditionally constructed building.
  • Strong: Since the home must withstand being shipped from the manufacturer to your property, it must be strong. And most of these structures are typically more solidly constructed and stronger than site-built houses.
  • Fast: After the addition is set in place, it will be 30-60 days from final completion.
  • More Stability: A modular home uses up to 33% more lumber than traditional homes, which means your house will be more stable.
