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 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
Building modular homes off-site assures higher construction quality management. Materials that are delivered to the factory location are safely and securely stockpiled 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 higher 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 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 raised 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 done, modular homes reflect the equivelent design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built home – without compromise.
