Get to Know Express Modular
Buying with Express Modular can provide many benefits when it comes to getting quality modular homes at the best value. As America’s only nationwide modular home builder, our size and experience in building custom modular homes gives us several unique abilities.

We call it giving our clients more home for their money, all while delivering the highest level of service and support to you.
Modern construction techniques allow us to deliver modular homes with the highest level of attention to detail. There once was a time when doors and windows were built on-site. But the pursuit of performance and innovation led to factory-built doors and windows of much higher quality and much greater energy efficiency. The art of home building is moving in the same direction. We are leading the way to a time where all new homes will be built in a factory environment. As a leader in custom modular construction, let the team at Express Modular share their expertise to provide you with an enjoyable home building experience.
A Way to Better Living With Modular Homes
When building a new home, choosing to use modular construction is a great alternative. Modular homes allow you to spend your money on the features you wish for your new home. There’s nothing to repair or re-do. You can choose your colors, materials, upgrades, and options. Just sit back, relax and enjoy a home that you can truly make your own. You can depend on the fact that building in a controlled environment and indoors guarantees you the heathiest home possible. There is no comparison to the quality that factory construction can deliver when compared to traditional building outdoors. Because it’s been built specifically for you, a newly built home allows you to spend your time and money the way you want. Once completed, it’s prepared and readied for delivery in modules to your home site.
Delivery of your new custom modular home is generally scheduled as soon as possible after factory completion and your home site is ready. Once your home is delivered, Express Modular will coordinate the installation of your home on the foundation with an experienced set and crane crew. It all takes place very quickly at this point in the process. At this stage, the site and basement utilities get finished, the heating system is installed (if not factory completed) and the concrete and yard work are finished. In the final stage, the interior finish will be completed between the modular sections, this will include finishing floor seams, finishing mate wall doors and jambs, and completing drywall and paint touch up. Most modular homes will be finished within approximately 6 weeks of delivery and ready for you to enjoy!
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 integrated into 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. It is essential 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 create 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 efficient building process. Let Express Modular help you reach your required level of “green”: from simple energy efficiency to net-zero and beyond.
