10 Reasons to Choose Modular Homes

Updated on May 22, 2017

Man has been building places to live since the beginning of time. From simple stone huts to exquisite palaces, adobe sided homes to modernistic and glass paneled, there is a plethora of home styles and finishes – so when you are planning on having a custom home built, you are certain to find something that works for your needs. But regardless of the type of finish you opt for, there is first much bigger question to be determined – especially in these modern times. You must decide whether to have a stick built home or a modular one.

While there are many proponents of having a contractor, who builds a home one section and space at time, thanks to today’s technology, it is now easier than ever before to have a home built – and in record time, too! Not sure? Perhaps you think that the only way to get that custom designed home is to spend long hours with an architect and an engineer as they craft personalized plans? If so, then it might just surprise you to learn how versatile modular construction actually is!

Benefits of Choosing Modular Construction

  • Modular homes can be re-designed or even disassembled and moved much easier than the traditional home.
  • It will be easier to established your home’s landscape, as there will be less foot traffic and fewer ruts in your yard during the construction.
  • With a stick built home, there is always wasted materials. In a modular home, there is little to no waste because the piece mare assembled at the factory and then moved to your location. Also, any extra pieces are recycled sooner rather than later for other projects.
  • Because the home’s elements are built in a factory, the materials used are kept drying eliminating the risk of moisture or germs and pollen being trapped in the wood and other elements.
  • The modular home is built to code and will meet and exceed building standards.
  • No risks of weather delays, getting b or behind schedule, or materials being left out in the elements. This also means that a modular will cost less than the traditional approach.
  • You are not limited in the design, as virtually any style you want can be done using a modular design.
  • There are fewer work related injuries than with a stick built home.
  • Less clean up involved after the home is built and in place.
  • There is a better ROI, as a traditionally constructed home has a depreciation rate of 39 years, while a modular’s is on 7 years.
  • A modular home requires less maintenance.

Opting for a team that does modular construction is a great way to get the home you want in a timeframe that works on your schedule. As you consider your new home, don’t overlook the value of a factory home. Talk to some locals who have them and learn all you can about what options are available and how they will not just meet, but exceed your expectations.
