A Way to Better Living With Modular Homes
By being constructed in a factory, you have peace of mind knowing that your new home started its construction with quality built right in. Factory efficiency results in reduced costs and the quality control results in a superior product. The idea of building homes, especially the pieces that make up a home, in a factory is not a recent event. By using automatic assembly equipment and repetitive assembly-line techniques, factories assemble component parts more efficiently and with greater consistency in product quality. This is true whether the components are assembled to create a window or entire modular homes.
Once our modules are delivered to your site, the superior quality and quicker completion time using modular construction becomes apparent immediately. The assembly onsite takes place in as little as a single day. Within several weeks your home is completed without the fear of damaging water in your home and the typical weather delays. While value may be your primary motive for evaluating modular homes, many find that greater energy efficiency, extended warranties, and flexible design options rank high in their evaluation criteria. Customers who want high-quality finishes as well as superiorquality construction increasingly understand that they can get both with a custom modular home.
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 incorporated 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. It is 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; 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 pose 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 superior building process. Let Express Modular help you achieve your required level of “green”: from simple energy efficiency to net-zero and beyond.
