Safe and Healthy Living With Modular Homes
Designing Your Modular Home
Building off-site in a controlled environment using the modular construction methodology provides many inherent green advantages over conventional construction. It does this by minimizing disturbance to the site, reducing vehicular traffic, and lowering the construction costs of modular homes. Building in a controlled environment means virtually no weather delays. Materials are ordered, received and safely stored in a dry warehouse so replacement due to weather damage or loss is eliminated. It also means that while your home is being constructed in the factory, that site development is occurring simultaneously, significantly shortening the completion time. Modules are “shrink-wrapped” at the factory to protect your home while being transported to your home site.
Structurally, modular homes have to be built much stronger than traditional homes. This is because each module must be engineered to independently withstand the rigors of transportation to your job site and then being lifted with straps by a crane and placed onto your foundation. Once together and with connections completed, the modules become one integrated wall, floor and roof assembly. Some complex finishes require completion onsite and are scheduled for done quickly after the installation of the modules on the foundation. You should expect to be moving into your new home in as little as 4-6 weeks after delivery of your home to your job site.
Modular Homes are Custom 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 provide us with a custom house plan from another 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 over 28,000 custom house plans. We have teamed with them to develop a modular friendly custom home plan collection that gives you access to thousands of house 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 unique experience and insights that give you an advantage. Nearly 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.
Today’s homebuyer demands energy efficiency. Express Modular prides itself in building the most energy efficient home possible. Currently an Energy Star partner, Express Modular offers many features as standard that meets or exceeds current Energy Star, LEED, and Green Building Standards. Express Modular allows you, the customer, the option to custom tailor any of our modular homes to meet the requirements for the program of your choosing. If it’s an optional Energy Star Certified home you require, Express Modular will team up with a third party Energy Star rater to guarantee your new home meets or exceeds the current requirements mandated by Energy Star.
Modern modular construction means less homeowner headaches. Indoor construction in a controlled environment means exterior finishes are completed last, instead of first. We can build your new home from the inside out, the opposite of conventional outdoor construction. What this means to you is that the building envelope of your new home can be constructed to be super energy efficient. This just comes standard with modular homes and their construction process. Increased insulation, better sealants, and the use of advanced materials are just a few of the reasons to adopt the worry-free benefits of modular construction for your new home.
