Magnificently Built Modular Homes
The base price of modular homes is less expensive than a traditionally built home where you have a crew laboring on-site for months. Because the base cost is generally lower, new home buyers can then customize their modular home more generously than one can with a site-built home.
Modular homes have many benefits for home buyers who want to build. Here are some things you should know:
1. Modular homes Are Faster to Build
Depending on the complexity of the home, modular construction can take anywhere from one to three months to build and get it move-in ready. From start to finish, it takes about nine months to a year to construct a stick-built house.
Modules are constructed and inspected in a factory, where weather won't delay the process. The modules are then transported to the building site. It takes about three days to fully assemble the modules at the site.
2. Preset home plans, a-la-carte, or customized homes
Modular home manufacturers offer home plans. The base price of a modular home typically includes construction, transportation of the modules to the final build site, and setting the home on its foundation. However, buyers can change a preset plan or they can fully-customize their modular floor plans.
3. Modular Homes Are Very Durable
Modular homes have an inherently rigid system that perform much better than conventional residential framing in hurricane force winds. Modular homes can hold up better in extreme weather conditions than traditional stick-built structures.
4. Modular Homes can be Remodeled
Just like a stick-built home, modular homes can be remodeled. Let you contractor know before you begin the remodeling process, because there may be some slight differences in the structure of the beams that support the home.
