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 changed 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
Creating Your Modular Home
With modular homes, in-factory construction quality is invariably better than that which is traditionally built on site. Lumber cut with a hand-held circular saw at a job site are not as precise as those cut with fixed tools in a factory. What’s more, factory inspections examine every construction feature from floor framing to final paint. Trained factory inspectors or independent third party inspectors perform more than a dozen inspections per home. Local building inspectors may only conduct three or four announced inspections on the average conventionally built home. All building materials are held out of the weather. Wet materials stored at many on-site building locations are built into the new home resulting in warped walls, ceilings and mold problems. With modular construction your new home is built to the highest possible standard and packaged for transport to your job site.
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 raised 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 completed, modular homes reflect the identical design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built home – without compromise.
Making it Custom with Modular Homes
When building a custom home you need to feel comfortable that your new home will be healthy for your family and designed for your lifestyle. You need to start with a house plan that supports how you want to live. You expect a custom home to be exactly that, custom. You want to make changes to floorplans, materials, and elevations. We utilize the design flexibility of modular construction to build your custom home utilizing our plans, or you have the choice to bring us your custom plan and have us “modularize” and build it.
Many years ago we determined that building outside just wasn’t the way we wanted to build our custom homes for our customers. We knew there was a better way – it was modular construction. As a custom home builder it was getting more difficult to realize the level of quality and consistency that we demanded of ourselves for our customers. Building a custom home outdoors in the weather and attempting to do it with a dwindling pool of skilled and experienced craftsmen was a daily challenge. To be a top custom home builder today demands the use of modern building techniques. This means we now have the Modular Advantage in our corner and we share it with our customers every day!
Energy Efficient By Design
A home built to the 2012 Energy Code is about 15 percent more efficient than a house built to the 2009 Energy Code. A house built to the 2015 Energy Code is almost 50% more energy efficient than one built to the 2009 Code. Today’s new homes must be more energy efficient. By including the Energy Star certification option to your new home, you could save up to $2,000 a year in energy costs and potentially more. Express Modular works with you to develop the right living environment. Attention to details like selecting a floorplan, choosing component features,lighting and heating are part of the process that defines our energy efficient custom modular homes.
Modern modular construction means less homeowner headaches. Indoor construction in a controlled environment means exterior finishes are finished last, instead of first. We can build your new home from the inside out, just the opposite of building outdoors. What this means to you is that the exterior envelope of your new home can be designed to be more efficient. This just comes standard with modular homes and their construction process. More insulation, better sealants, and the use of high-tech materials are several of the reasons to pick the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
