The answer to this question can be summed up in one term, “smart building.” By default, modular home building is a more intelligent way to build and buy. Here’s why:
1.) Modular homes are designed by professional architects and engineers to very high standards. This means that each structure is designed using the latest technologies and a wide variety of building materials to meet stringent building codes and deliver precisely the style of home desired. This also makes it much easier for the home manufacturer to build a high-quality structure down to the smallest detail.
2.) The process of modular home building has better quality assurance methods. When a home is being prefabricated in a modular manufacturing facility, it is very easy for the quality assurance team to inspect the structure during critical points of the build without being pressured by lousy weather conditions or lack of daylight. The final result is a high-quality home that has passed several quality inspections to ensure that the customer’s expectations have been met.
3.) Building inside a modern manufacturing facility is environmentally friendly, sustainable, and fast. Building housing in a manufacturing facility centralizes the majority of work being done to build one or multiple homes. For example, employees have one place to report to for work, not various locations that may require long-distance commutes, driving stress, and hours of downtime. Additionally, material delivery trucks have one place to deliver materials. This provides safe and dry storage of materials that are traditionally stored on-site and susceptible to weathering and theft. With employee and material delivery vehicles reporting to a centralized location the environment benefits from less traffic and people on the roads and people benefit from having a comfortable facility to work in year-round…and this helps quality and productivity. This is a sustainable and smart way to build.
4.) Modular Homes are built and erected faster than traditional homes, without sacrificing quality. So, if you are a new home buyer, you can expect to occupy your house sooner, and that keeps everyone happy, especially if winter is arriving soon. If you sell or build homes speed to occupancy is also a great selling point and combine that with quality construction, a wide variety of interior and exterior material choices and comfortable floor plans.
