Get to Know Express Modular
An industry leader in providing custom modular homes, at Express Modular we take pride in our ability to plan, develop and construct a truly custom crafted home. Our family of experienced consultants achieves this while promoting our core beliefs of service, quality, customer satisfaction, and value. We offer 100’s of classic designs, but they are typically nothing more than a starting point to be revised by customers to meet particular lifestyle and housing needs. More often we are using our modern modular building techniques to provide truly custom homes for our satisfied customers.
Modular homes from Express Modular combines the most desirable methods of traditional, site-built construction with the economic, technological and environmental advantages of building your new home in an indoor factory environment. The individual parts in any home (for example, a cabinet or a roof truss) are manufactured in a controlled factory environment according to defined specifications and tested to ensure that they meet applicable standards. Express Modular’s homes are no different – we create our homes using similar techniques. The modular building process results in a home that is built faster, greener, better, and with virtually none of the headaches presented by historic, site built construction.
Safe and Healthy Living With Modular Homes
Built in a factory, modular homes begin as segments called modules that are constructed under roof in a climate-controlled environment. The modules undergo a quality assurance inspection at each part of the manufacturing process, not only for building code compliance but also for quality construction. Without the fear of weather and rain, experienced workers can guarantee that your home gets the attention to detail that you demand. Quality material is the norm and modern building technology is applied to build your custom home. Upon final review and sign-off, the modules are prepared for delivery to your job site.
Once done at the factory, the finished sections are delivered to the building site and then positioned with a crane. The installation process reminds you of a child building with Lego™ blocks. Modular homes are constructed using appropriate state and local regulations and codes. Due to the extra strength needed for transport and installation, your home will in fact exceed building code. Your custom home is completed onsite faster because the factory has completed so much of the work off-site in parallel with the foundation and groundworks being completed. You can look forward to be living in your new home 20-35% faster because you chose the strength and design flexibility of modular construction.
Designing A New Modular Home
Design for a new modular home will start with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. All of these must be incorporated in the design from the start, and employed in any engineering step of the plan. You’ll want layouts for your attached garages, verandas or decks as they are included in the modular home plan. is vital for you to catalog what you need to plan for your residence so it can be established that these will be incorporated into the plan.
There are no limits to the square footage to the plan using modular homes; currently there are designs as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 modules, with your common range between 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within ten to twelve modules. All of the home designs Express Modular makes available are constructed in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Today, modular building means reduced homebuyer headaches. Building indoors in a factory environment means exterior finishes are completed last, not first. This allows us to construct your custom home from the inside out, the opposite of traditional outdoor construction. What this means to you is that the building envelope of your custom home can be designed to be super energy efficient. This is a standard feature with modular homes and their building process. Increased insulation, high-tech sealants, and the use of advanced materials are just some of the reasons to pick the advantages of modular building for your custom home.
