Differences Between Modular Construction and Stick Built

What is the difference between Modular construction and stick built construction? In order to make an educated decision, you need to know the difference.  

Stick Built Home Construction:  These homes are built on-site, meaning they built from the ground up on your building lot. This is the traditional method of home construction, so these homes are often referred to as “traditionally built homes”.  This is any home construction that is completely built on site.

Modular Construction:  This is the latest, fastest growing and most advanced form of home construction. Parts of the home, the modules, are built in a factory, and then transported in pieces to the construction site. Modular homes ARE stick built homes, they are just built in a factory first. Modular homes usually contain at least 30% more building materials than traditionally built homes because they need to be sturdier for transportation. Modular home modules are also inspected by a third party before they leave the factory. Of course, the building materials are never exposed to the elements while being built.
