Innovation Through Custom Modular Homes
Planning Your Modular Home
Modular homes are built in a modern, climate controlled factory. Every module is can insure that your home gets the attention to detail that you require. Quality material is standard and the latest in building technology is used to construct your new home. Only after final inspection are the modules prepped for transport to your home site.
Structurally, modular homes have to be built much stronger than site built homes. This is because each module must be engineered to independently withstand the forces of shipment to your home site and then being lifted with straps by a crane and set onto your foundation. Once together and with connections completed, the modules transform into one integrated wall, floor and roof assembly. Some complex finishes need completion onsite and are scheduled for done quickly after the installation of the modules on the foundation. You should anticipate moving into your new home in as little as 4-6 weeks after delivery of your home to your job site.
Modular Homes are Custom Homes
There is a difference between a customized home and a custom home. Some builders say they build custom homes but what they really mean is that you can choose one of their limited home plan offerings and move/remove a wall, or choose an optional kitchen or bath layout. That isn’t a custom home. A custom home begins by defining your style, how you live, and how you want your home to support you. Some of our prospective customers start with one of our standard home plans and then customize it to their specific needs. Others find a custom home plan from our house plan partner’s website, Architectural Designs, and then we “modularize” it and build their new custom home.
A good custom home builder is an advocate for the homeowner. The home builder has to work with architects, designers, subcontractors, inspectors, and the homeowner themselves. Express Modular is the most experienced and knowledgeable custom home builder in the country that exclusively uses modern modular construction to deliver our custom homes to our customers. We want to start to work with you as soon as possible in the process of building your new custom home. We believe that the sooner we get involved and start supporting you in the building process, the better chance we have of helping you to create a better design and to possibly do it in such a way that can save you money. We want to give you the full value that modular construction has to offer!
With today’s sophisticated computer modeling and the increased requirement for high performance, energy efficient custom homes; modular construction is a natural fit to fill the need. Many areas call for the use of the HERS Index to measure energy efficiency of new homes. The HERS index is a scoring system developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) in which a home built to the specifications of the HERS Reference Home scores a HERS Index of 100, while a net zero energy home scores a HERS Index of 0. The lower a home’s HERS Index, the more energy efficient it is in comparison to the HERS Reference Home. Modular homes can typically reach scores of 50 – 60 with little extra costs or changes to our normal building method.
Modern modular construction means less homeowner headaches. Indoor construction in a controlled environment means exterior finishes are done last, instead of first. We can build your new home from the inside out, as opposed to conventional construction which builds from the outside in. What this means to you is that the outside envelope of your new home can be constructed to be highly air-tight. This just comes standard with modular homes and their construction process. Additional insulation, better sealants, and the use of modern materials are a couple of the reasons to adopt the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
