Get to Know Express Modular
As a seasoned leader in custom modular homes, at Express Modular we pride ourselves in the ability to design, engineer and build a truly custom crafted home. Our team of expert consultants achieves this while maintaining our core beliefs of quality, customer satisfaction, service and value. We offer hundreds of standard plans, but they are used as a mere starting point to be modified by customers to meet specific lifestyle and housing needs. More often we are exploiting our modern modular construction techniques to deliver truly custom homes for our happy customers.
Our modular homes combine the best practices of traditional, site-built construction with the technological, economic and environmental advantages of creating your custom home in a controlled environment. The component parts in any home (for example, a light or a floor truss) are manufactured in a controlled factory environment according to precise specifications and tested to ensure that they meet design standards. Modular homes from Express Modular are no different – we build our homes using similar techniques. The modular construction process results in a home that is built better, greener, faster, and with a fraction of the headaches presented by traditional, on site construction.
Innovation Through Custom Modular Homes
Planning Your Modular Home
Modular homes are built in a modern, climate controlled factory. Every module is can insure that your home gets the attention to detail that you require. Quality material is standard and the latest in building technology is used to construct your new home. Only after final inspection are the modules prepped for transport to your home site.
Final quality assurance is done at the factory, and your custom modular home is placed on your project site. Once onsite, a crane and an expert crew position your home on its foundation. Modular homes are built to withstand all of the rigors of delivery to your site and being lifted by a crane. All of this was accomplished in a timeframe that was one-half to two-thirds of the duration needed by traditiona outdoor construction. Once done, modular homes reflect the equivelent design intent and specifications of the most sophisticated site-built home – without compromise.
Making it Custom with Modular Homes
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 supply us with a custom house plan from a different source. 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 in excess of 28,000 custom house plans. We have joined with them to develop a modular friendly custom home plan collection that gives you access to thousands of 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 distinct experience and insights that give you an advantage. Almost all 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.
With today’s sophisticated computer modeling and the increased requirement for high performance, energy efficient custom homes; modular construction is a natural fit to fill the need. Many areas call for the use of the HERS Index to measure energy efficiency of new homes. The HERS index is a scoring system developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) in which a home built to the specifications of the HERS Reference Home scores a HERS Index of 100, while a net zero energy home scores a HERS Index of 0. The lower a home’s HERS Index, the more energy efficient it is in comparison to the HERS Reference Home. Modular homes can typically reach scores of 50 – 60 with little extra costs or changes to our normal building method.
Modern modular construction means less homeowner headaches. Indoor construction in a controlled environment means exterior finishes are done last, instead of first. We can build your new home from the inside out, as opposed to conventional construction which builds from the outside in. What this means to you is that the outside envelope of your new home can be designed to be highly air-tight. This just comes standard with modular homes and their construction process. Additional insulation, better sealants, and the use of modern materials are a couple of the reasons to pick the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
