At a glance, modular home construction looks exactly like traditional stick-built structures. Let’s take a deeper look into a number of the critical differences that make modular construction an overall superior product.
Lagged Corner Framing
To those of you who don’t understand the difference between nailing and lag bolting, we need to demonstrate that for you. Our modular home’s frames are lagged together which makes them structurally incomparably strong vs our stick-built competitors.
Walls Secured with Screws & Nails
Walls are set in place first with nails, then with screws for extra tight framing. Most traditional builders skip the screws as it adds time and expense. We never skip the screws.
