A Way to Better Living With Modular Homes
While your new home is being constructed in the factory, not only are there increased inspections from an outside third party inspection agency and higher quality control, but our building materials are never exposed to the elements. This provides you with a cleaner home and one that has a far lower threat for mold, mildew, and pest infestation. The key to quality built modular homes is the use of protected materials and eliminating weather related problems. By keeping all building materials true and square, your home will be built to the highest quality possible.
Structurally, modular homes have to be built much stronger than conventional homes. This is because each module must be engineered to independently withstand the stresses of delivery to your build site and then be lifted with straps by a crane and positioned onto your foundation. Once together, and with connections completed, the modules turn into one integrated wall, floor and roof assembly. Some complex finishes demand completion onsite and are scheduled for done quickly after the installation of the modules on the foundation. You should plan to be moving into your new home in as little as 4-6 weeks after delivery of your home to your job site.
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 included in 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 very 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 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 methodical building process. Let Express Modular help you acquire your required level of “green”: from simple energy efficiency to net-zero and beyond.
