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 create 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 industry 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.
A Way to Better Living With Modular Homes
Building modular homes off-site guarantees higher construction quality management. Materials that are delivered to the factory location are safely and securely stored in a warehouse to prevent damage and/or deterioration from moisture and the elements. Just like you have come to expect with every factory made product you use in your everyday life, stringent Quality Assurance/Quality Control programs promote increased quality of construction every step of the way. Why accept inferior quality in your home when you can select superior quality modular construction to protect your family with a healthy and safe living environment?
Final quality assurance is finished at the factory, and your custom modular home is placed on your home site. Once onsite, a crane and an expert crew install your home on its foundation. Modular homes are built to withstand all of the forces 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 traditional outdoor construction. Once completed, modular homes reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built home – without compromise.
Creating Your Modular Home
The design of your new modular home will begin by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction site. These have to be integrated within the layout from the beginning, as well as employed in the engineering phase in the design. When planning a modular home, you will need designs for any attached garage areas, porches or outside patios since they are not part of the modular home design. is vital that you list what you want to design into the home so that it can be determined that these can be included in your design.
There is no limit to the size of of your design with modular homes; presently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in Thirty-two components, with the typical range from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet in 10 to 12 components. Each and every design Express Modular provides are designed this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.
Homebuyers are becoming knowledgeable about the advantages of using “green” technology when building their new home. Modular homes are a natural choice when “green” features are important. The National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS) is the only residential green building rating system approved by ANSI as an American National Standard. The NGBS provides practices for the design and construction of all types of green residential buildings, renovations, and land developments. It primarily focuses on three areas: healthy homes, lower operating costs, and sustainable lifestyle. Green building brings together a vast array of methods, techniques, and skills to reduce and eventually eliminate the impacts of buildings on the environment and human health. There are over 100 Green Building Certification programs. Ultimately, the type of certification system pursued for a new home depends upon that particular project; none of the certification systems are a one-size-fits all.
Newly built modular homes use modern materials that don’t lead to the health risks of materials used in many older homes and even new site-built homes. These can include: mold & mildew, asbestos, Volatile Organic Compounds, lead paint, etc. Environmental responsibility is a big part of the modular construction process. Constructing your new home in a factory means efficient and consistent building processes. Several Green Building Programs literally award additional points for the use of modular construction because of the structured building process. Let Express Modular help you obtain your required level of “green”: from simple energy efficiency to net-zero and beyond.
