No, modular buildings use the same materials as site-built homes. They actually have better quality since the pre-fabricated buildings are built in sections inside the controlled environment of a factory. Then shipped by truck to the building site where they are assembled by local builders who understand the local environment. All modular buildings meet or exceed the same local building codes as a regular home (site-built or stick-built home).
A modular homes appearance is the same as any other house. There are countless numbers of designs to choose from and additional site add-ons so your modular home will look however you want it to look. Modular buildings are different in that they use a more efficient building process. They are the same in that they use the same materials and design types as regular homes. A modular home is different than a mobile home.
Manufactured homes are also known as mobile homes. They are built on a non-removable steel chassis (about the size of a flatbed truck) and must pass the federal HUD building code. Manufactured homes are normally single or double wide and have a low roof. They are single floor buildings and do not have basements Modular homes are the same as an old-fashioned home. They are constructed according to the state/local building codes. Modular homes can be any shape or size. They can be multi-leveled and can have basements. Modular homes are built in large segments at an off-site factory and then constructed together at your building site.
This depends on the size of the modular home and the complexity. The more complex a structure you choose the more modules it will require. Since all fabrication is performed in a climate controlled factory, there are no weather delays and work is done more efficiently (don't you work better when it is not too cold or too hot). Also since the fabrication is done off-site, it can be done at the same time the building site is being prepared saving even more time. As modules are finished they are shipped to building site were they are assembled together on the foundation. The total building process can take anywhere from 1 to 3 months.
There are several savings with modular homes.
- Since modular home builders fabricate all the homes at one factory they are able to buy material in bulk quantities at reduced costs.
- Fabrication is done in a climate controlled factory so no time is wasted on weather delays which means lower labor costs.
- SSince the fabrication is done in a central factory they can reduce material waste and the workers are more experienced at their specific tasks so they can complete them faster.
- There are no vandalism costs since the fabricated pieces are secure in the factory until they are assembled.
- Since the modular building can be completed faster due to the concurrent building process, there are saving on reduced loan interest.
