As the leader in modular construction, let the team at Express Modular share their expertise to deliver a satisfying home building experience.
A Way to Better Living With Modular Homes
Often, clients think that home price is the primary benefit of modular construction. That is ranked as the third leading objective for constructing a modular home. While quicker building time places as second, it is the unbeatable quality that can be attained that really places as first. By constructing in a controlled factory environment we can provide safer and healthier modular homes for you and your family. The modular sections of your home are then quality inspected once more before they are transported to your build site.
With factory construction, a modular homes level of completion at the factory is approximately 75-85%. Once the home is on your job site, Express Modular will install your home on the completed foundation. The complete process of transport, installation, and finish is strictly handled. Onsite, the remainder of the finish work is done. The checklist of items includes: connection of utilities, interior and exterior button-up, and the balance of site work which may include porches, driveways, sidewalks, yard, etc. Most homes, once installed on your foundation, are finished and ready to move into within just about 6 weeks.
Creating A New Modular Home
Design for a new modular home will begin with establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction location. All of these have to be integrated within the layout from the beginning, and integrated into any engineering step in the plan. You’ll want layouts for your attached garage areas, verandas or outside patios since they are included in the modular home plan. It is essential 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; presently there are layouts as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in Thirty-two components, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within ten to twelve components. Each and every home Express Modular makes available are constructed in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.
Many that are new to construction are becoming knowledgeable about the benefits of using “green” technology when constructing their custom home. Modular homes are a logical choice when “green” features are valued. The National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS) is the only residential green building rating system approved by ANSI as an American National Standard. The NGBS specifies practices for the design and construction of all types of green residential buildings, renovations, and land developments. It centers mainly on three areas: lower operating costs, healthy homes, and sustainable lifestyle. Green building brings together a vast array of methods, approaches, and expertise to reduce and eventually end the effects of buildings on the environment and human health. There are more than a hundred Green Building Certification programs. Ultimately, the selection of a certification system for a new home depends upon that exact project; no certification system is a one-size-fits all.
Today’s modular homes take advantage of modern materials that don’t result in the health risks of items used in older homes and some newer site-built homes. These can include: mildew and mold, asbestos, Volatile Organic Compounds(VOCs), lead paint, etc. Environmentally friendly building is an integral part of the modular construction process. Constructing your custom home in a factory means consistent and efficient building processes. Many Green Building Programs literally award specific points for using modular construction because of the efficient building process. Express Modular can help you acquire your required level of “green”: from basic energy efficiency to net-zero and beyond.
