Many people are now turning to modular homes because of their durability and sturdiness as well as their attractiveness and efficient construction time. There are many reasons why modular homes are known to be much stronger than traditional stick-in buildings.

To start with, modular homes are pre-fabricated in a factory-like setting which has design specifications that are precise and quality is continuously monitored. When the modules are completed, they are transported from the warehouse to the actual job site. These modules are built to endure the handling, transport, and craning at their final destination.

Moreover, with stick-built construction air guns are used by builders to secure nail walls, floors and ceilings. In contrast to traditional construction, modular construction frames are glued and screwed and the modules or sections are fastened together using strapping, special adhesives, screws and bolts to achieve a higher level of strength and integrity.
