Safe and Healthy Living With Modular Homes
While your new home is being constructed in the factory, not only are there more 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 risk for mold, mildew, and pest infestation. The key to quality built modular homes is the use of protected materials and eliminating weather related defects. By keeping all building materials true and square, your home will be built to the highest quality possible.
Structurally, modular homes have to be built much stronger than traditional homes. This is because each module must be engineered to independently withstand the rigors of transportation to your job site and then be lifted with straps by a crane and placed onto your foundation. Once together, and with connections completed, the modules become one integrated wall, floor and roof assembly. Some complex finishes require completion onsite and are scheduled for done quickly after the installation of the modules on the foundation. You should expect to be moving into your new home in as little as 4-6 weeks after delivery of your home to your job site.
Designing Your Modular Home
The design of your new modular home will start by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. These must be incorporated in the design from the start, as well as included in the engineering phase of the design. When planning a modular home, you will need designs for any attached garages, porches or decks as they are not part of the modular home design. is very important 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; currently we see designs as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet built in 32 modules, with the typical range from 4 to 6 thousand square feet in 10 to 12 modules. All of the home designs Express Modular provides are designed this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

Modern modular construction means less homeowner headaches. Indoor construction in a controlled environment means exterior finishes are completed last, instead of first. We can build your new home from the inside out, the opposite of conventional outdoor construction. What this means to you is that the building envelope of your new home can be constructed to be super energy efficient. This just comes standard with modular homes and their construction process. Increased insulation, better sealants, and the use of advanced materials are just a few of the reasons to adopt the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
