Safe and Healthy Living With Modular Homes
Modular homes are built in a modern, climate controlled factory. Every module is precision engineered for structural integrity. Quality control is carried out by constant inspections throughout the construction process. Expensive change orders, which drive up the price of traditional construction, are virtually eliminated when using modular construction. The sheer speed with which your home is built means there is a process for the efficient acquisition and installation of materials, supplies, and fixtures using the colors and options you have selected. Attention to detail is important to maintain factory efficiency. Quality is reviewed before your home is prepared for shipment to your project site.
Traditional construction just doesn’t stand up to the rigors that modular construction is designed to withstand. Strength is built right into our modular homes to insure they can be flawlessly installed on the foundation at your home site. A modular home can consist of as few as two modules and sometimes contain as many as 15 modules, 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 sacrifice the style you want or the exterior finishes you require. The only thing that distinguishes a finished modular home from a site built home is the factory quality that was designed in.
