A Way to Better Living With Modular Homes
Modular homes are built in a modern, climate controlled factory. Every module is precision engineered for structural integrity. Quality control is carried out by constant inspections all through the construction process. Expensive change orders, which drive up the price of conventional construction, are virtually eliminated when using modular construction. The sheer speed with which your home is built means there is a process for the efficient acquisition and installation of materials, supplies, and fixtures using the colors and options you have chosen. Attention to detail is essential to preserve factory efficiency. Quality is inspected prior to your home being readied for transport to your building site.
Conventional, old style construction just doesn’t stand up to the stresses that modular construction is built to withstand. Strength is built right into our modular homes to assure they can be flawlessly installed on the foundation at your home site. A modular home can consist of as few as two modules and sometimes contain as many as 15 modules, or even more. Modular design flexibility means your home can be built in practically any style: Chalet, Cape Cod, Two Story, Arts and Crafts, Contemporary, etc. You can get all of the advantages modular construction offers over traditionally built homes with no need to forgo the style you want or the exterior finishes you demand. The only thing that differentiates a finished modular home from a site built home is the factory quality that was designed in.
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 built 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. is significant 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 result in 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 systematic building process.
