Get to Know Express Modular
As a seasoned leader in custom modular homes, at Express Modular we pride ourselves in the ability to design, engineer and build a truly custom crafted home. Our team of expert consultants achieves this while maintaining our core beliefs of quality, customer satisfaction, service and value. We offer hundreds of standard plans, but they are used as a mere starting point to be modified by customers to meet specific lifestyle and housing needs. More often we are exploiting our modern modular construction techniques to deliver truly custom homes for our happy customers.
Our modular homes combine the best practices of traditional, site-built construction with the technological, economic and environmental advantages of creating your custom home in a controlled environment. The component parts in any home (for example, a light or a floor truss) are manufactured in a controlled factory environment according to precise specifications and tested to ensure that they meet design standards. Modular homes from Express Modular are no different – we build our homes using similar techniques. The modular construction process results in a home that is built better, greener, faster, and with a fraction of the headaches presented by traditional, on site construction.
Innovation Through Custom Modular Homes
Planning Your Modular Home
While your new home is being constructed in the factory, not only are there additional inspections from an outside third party inspection agency and higher quality control, but our building materials are never exposed to the elements. This provides you with a cleaner home and one that has a far lower chance for mold, mildew, and pest infestation. The key to quality built modular homes is the use of protected materials and eliminating weather related issues. By keeping all building materials true and square, your home will be built to the highest quality possible.
Final quality assurance is done at the factory, and your custom modular home is placed on your project site. Once onsite, a crane and an expert crew position your home on its foundation. Modular homes are built to withstand all of the rigors of delivery to your site and being lifted by a crane. All of this was accomplished in a timeframe that was one-half to two-thirds of the duration needed by traditiona outdoor construction. Once done, modular homes reflect the equivelent design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built home – without compromise.
Making it Custom with Modular 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 designed 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 pick the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
