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 customized by customers to meet particular lifestyle and housing needs. More often we are using our modern modular building techniques to deliver 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 design 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.
Innovation Through Custom Modular Homes

Creating Your Modular Home
With modular homes, in-factory construction quality is invariably better than that which is traditionally built on site. Lumber cut with a hand-held circular saw at a job site are not as precise as those cut with fixed tools in a factory. What’s more, factory inspections cover every construction feature from floor framing to final paint. Trained factory inspectors or independent third party inspectors perform more than a dozen inspections per home. Local building inspectors may only conduct three or four announced inspections on the average conventionally built home. All building materials are stored out of the weather. Wet materials stored at many on-site building locations are built into the new home resulting in warped walls, ceilings and mold problems. With modular construction your new home is built to the highest possible standard and packaged for transport to your job 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 it is flawlessly installed on the foundation at your home site. A modular home can consist of as few as two modules and be made up of as many as 15 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 finish you demand. The only thing that differentiates a finished modular home from a site built home is the factory quality that was designed in.
Custom Home Plans and Modular Construction
Express Modular builds custom homes. While we may have thousands of standard home plans to review, we rarely build with them. Our prospective home buyers will use those plans as a “good start” towards designing their own custom home plan or they will bring us a custom house plan from a different resource. Some will use our free design tool and create their own house plan for us to “modularize” and use it to build their custom home. We are exclusive partners with a major custom house plan company, Architectural Designs, which makes available more than 28,000 custom house plans. We have teamed up with them to develop a modular friendly custom home plan collection that gives you access to thousands of home plans that can be purchased and built using modular construction.
There is really no such thing as a modular home. Modular is a construction technique, not a type of home. Express Modular is a custom home builder that chooses to only use modular construction for delivery of our custom built homes. Because we are the only nationwide modular home builder we have specific experience and insights that give you an advantage. Most custom builders only build homes in small geographic areas limiting their exposure to ideas, new methods, and unique building materials. You get the benefit of our broad exposure to how custom homes are built across the country.
A home built to the 2012 Energy Code is roughly 15 percent more efficient than a house built to the 2009 Energy Code. A house built to the 2015 Energy Code is about 50% more energy efficient than one built to the 2009 Code. Today’s new homes must be more energy efficient. By including the Energy Star certification option to your new home, you could save up to $2,000 a year in energy costs and potentially more. Express Modular works with you to develop the perfect living environment. Attention to details like selecting a floorplan, selecting component features,lighting and heating are part of the process that defines our energy efficient custom modular homes.
Modern modular construction means less homeowner headaches. Indoor construction in a controlled environment means exterior finishes are finished last, instead of first. We can build your new home from the inside out, just the opposite of building outdoors. What this means to you is that the exterior envelope of your new home can be fabricated to be more efficient. This just comes standard with modular homes and their construction process. More insulation, better sealants, and the use of high-tech materials are several of the reasons to decide-on the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
