Modular Construction Cuts New Home Construction Costs

With the cost of goods increasing, many would-be home-owners are having a rethink how they are going to build their new home. They want a less expensive means of building houses but with equal quality. They are choosing Modular construction, it is less expensive and houses can be completed in 30 days.

For most considering new construction, what comes to their minds first is the cost. People can still build their dream homes without investing the amount of time or money to build a traditionally built home. Modular homes can be constructed without following the conventional way of building a house.

Modular construction is an innovative home building process with rapid and accurate design fabrication and installation. It is built in sections in a factory setting, where it is subjected to weather conditions.

The sections move through the factory, with the company’s quality control department checking on every step. Finished modules are transported to home sites where they are placed on a foundation, joined, and completed by a builder.

Modular houses are affordable, durable, energy efficient and meet or exceed the standards or the city and state. Depending on the preferred design, size and manufacturer, it can be finished in one or two weeks in the factory.

Since modular panels are built indoors, are no weather delays. It usually takes another two-four weeks for a builder to complete the home once it’s delivered to the building site.

Unless people are there to see the house delivered and assembled, they may not guess it’s a modular home. Modular home manufacturers can draw floor plans to the owner’s specifications, or to modify one of their standard plans to suit the owner’s needs, so nearly any home plan can be turned into a modular home.

Consumers in search of a custom-built home are giving modular home designs thought. Sometimes they turn to modular houses because they cannot get a conventional builder to respond in time.

More frequently, superior quality, faster completion time, and better prices are the inducements, along with greater energy efficiency, extended warranties, and flexible design options. Customers who want high-quality finishes as well as high-quality construction increasingly understand that they can get both with a modular home.

Modular housing is most cost-effective in design and delivery and has the potential to grow the economy.

An advantage of modular homes is that it’s construction reduces material waste and is built with speed and efficiency because it is factory produced.   They are easy to build, have low capital cost, low risk, and speedy construction and utilization of local labor.
