Modular homes are the present and the future of American residential and commercial construction. The core reason to choose modular home construction? Everything is tailor made according to your taste and lifestyle. Modular construction is less expensive and quicker to build as compared to traditional construction methods. They also bring s long list of other benefits as well.

1. Use Less Energy

Nearly 90 percent of the construction of a modular building takes place off-site, hence the term prefabricated buildings. With this approach, there is significantly less disturbance to the environment surrounding the construction site. Not only is the actual construction of the building green, but the long-term running of the building also works out to be quite sustainable. Modular construction reduces energy consumption during the building process and it also reduces energy costs for its occupants.

2. Recycled Materials

Technology has made it possible for us to recycle almost anything. Modular buildings are constructed with recycled (and recyclable) materials for the most part. Recycled steel, recycled wood and even recycled glass are a large part of what makes up a modular building. All these parts can certainly be reused over and over again without seeing much wear and tear.

3. Modular Buildings are Recyclable Buildings

Modular buildings are called portable buildings for a reason. They will be transported from one place to another without having to go through the process of demolition. The term modular comes from the fact that these buildings are built one module (or unit) at a time and are then assembled on site. So, it stands to reason that they will also be dismantled. This makes it very easy to take down the building without disturbing the surrounding environment with dust, debris and other unwanted pollutants.

It will be our absolute pleasure to customize your home. With modular homes, architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
