Logistics

Modular homes are built according to the same building laws, codes and regulations as traditional stick-built homes. So, you never have to worry that the materials and the actual construction itself are of lesser quality, or are less safe, than stick-built homes. At the same time, modular homes are often less expensive to purchase than traditionally built homes. They are a great way for first-time home buyers to get a quality home for a great price. Homeowner can start to build equity without having to worry about not being able to afford the mortgage payments. Financing this type of home is similar to financing a traditional home too. Talk to your bank or lender to find out more information about loans for these types of homes.

Energy Efficiency

Modular construction is more cost effective than traditional stick-built homes and additions especially when it comes to energy efficiency. In general, the doors and windows have fewer gaps, which makes them more energy efficient and can cut down on the amount of money you have to spend on heating and cooling.

Modular construction is also environmentally friendly. Far less waste is created than with traditional builds. In traditional on-site construction, it is estimated that up 30% of materials end up in the dumpster by project completion. Compared to standard construction, modular home additions are constructed off-site making them not only a quicker, more efficient process, but a less painful one as well.
