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 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
Planning Your Modular Home
Take a deep breath. With indoor construction your new home will be built to meet your exact specifications, with superior materials, by expert craftsmanship and have a new home warranty. Modular construction enables you to enjoy open floor plans, large kitchens and more closet space. Once you make your decision to use modular construction for your new home you get to create your dream home, not fix-up someone else’s. Modular homes offer flexible designs which allows you to have your home built to the exacting standards that only construction in a factory can offer. Your home is protected from the weather and then prepared for delivery to your building site.
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 traditiona outdoor construction. Once done, modular homes reflect the equivelent 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 leverage the design flexibility of modular construction to build your custom home with our plans, or you have the alternative of bringing us your custom plan and letting 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 shrinking pool of experienced craftsmen was a daily challenge. To be a successful 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
With today’s sophisticated computer modeling and the growing requirement for high performance, energy efficient custom homes; modular construction is a natural fit to fill the need. Many areas call for the use of the HERS Index to measure energy efficiency of new homes. The HERS index is a scoring system developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) in which a home built to the specifications of the HERS Reference Home scores a HERS Index of 100, while a net zero energy home scores a HERS Index of 0. The lower a home’s HERS Index, the more energy efficient it is in comparison to the HERS Reference Home. Modular homes can typically reach scores of 50 – 60 with negligible extra costs or changes to our normal building method.
Modern modular construction means less homeowner headaches. Indoor construction in a controlled environment means exterior finishes are done last, instead of first. We can build your new home from the inside out, as opposed to conventional construction which builds from the outside in. What this means to you is that the outside envelope of your new home can be designed to be highly air-tight. This just comes standard with modular homes and their construction process. Additional insulation, better sealants, and the use of modern materials are a couple of the reasons to pick the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
