Innovation in Custom Home Building
If it’s your dream of owning a home that has never been lived in and reflects your tastes, you’re a candidate to build a custom modular home. Modern modular construction creates homes that are beautiful both inside and out. In this age of automation, there are a number of benefits to this ultra-efficient building method.
The difference is the process…
Enter the next generation of home construction:
MODERN MODULAR HOMES
Traditional home construction has remained basically unchanged for almost 200 years. Materials arrive at the home site and are individually cut and assembled outdoors in the elements by laborers, regardless of their experience and expertise. The process produces excessive waste, wrestles with maintaining schedules, and exposes materials to moisture creating a potential breeding ground for mold and mildew. The process creates beautiful homes but has always struggled to produce homes that promote a healthy and safe living environment for families that present-day building methods provide.
Building off site insures better construction quality management. Materials that are delivered to the construction facility are safely and securely stored in a protected warehouse to prevent damage or deterioration from moisture and the elements. With prefab homes, the construction process is carefully engineered to create a sequence of steps that is repeated precisely on every module. The assembly line method decreases the variability that occurs on a site-built project. The automated processes within a modular factory are dedicated to creating high quality homes with inspections at each station. This virtually eliminates on-the-fly decisions and drastically reduces unexpected complications that can regularly occur in the field for homes built with traditional construction.
Construction productivity; how fast, how well, and at what cost a home can be constructed — directly impacts the price of a home. Modular homes can be provided at the highest value because they take advantage of the modern modular building technique.
Overall, the extra care in the construction process will make your custom modular home stronger, to meet the demands of being transported from the factory to your home site, as well as exploiting advanced construction techniques to make it last longer than a traditional site built home.

Beautiful Home Design
Many people associate custom homes with large homes or expensive homes. However a true custom home can range from something as simple as a ranch-style home to a much more elaborate two-story floor plan designed to fit your lifestyle. A home should reflect the personalities of the people who live in it and should be specifically built for an individual customer. Colors, materials, fixtures as well as the floor plan are chosen specifically to create a home that is beautiful to the home buyer.
A common opinion among some people is that a house has to be huge or expensive to be beautiful or amazing. This is far from being true. Some modern modular homes seek to emphasize functionality over frills, and they showcase energy efficiency and the ability to almost disappear in a wooded area rather than stand out. Still others focus on the interior rather than the exterior. For example, while the outside might still be the traditional design that fits right into the neighborhood, the inside may be a collection of open rooms that seamlessly flow one into the other.
The path to your dream home depends on a variety of factors, particularly your budget and the level of customization you want.

Why build a modular home?
Quality & Value
We consult with you throughout the process to provide a modular home that expresses your style and delivers on value.
Your modular home is built in a temperature-controlled indoor environment that is safer and more efficient than building outdoors.
Efficient & Healthy
We control the precision construction of your modular home making it energy efficient and healthier for your family.
Modular Homes Offer Green Building and Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency and indoor air quality are becoming more important to many of our customers. Especially as they learn about the pitfalls of traditional onsite construction. These two subjects are playing a greater role in the decision process of our customers when they decide to use modular construction to build their new custom home.
The objective of green building is to use resources more efficiently and wisely.
Modular construction promotes healthy and comfortable homes. By designing for energy, water, and resource efficiency, modular homes improve building performance with enhanced comfort and lower operating costs. Modular construction allows you to easily incorporate sustainability. You can specify the use of recycled materials, LED lighting, high-efficiency mechanical systems, and sustainably harvested wood just as you would with any building system. By promoting green building, modular homes can conserve limited resources, and protect our natural environment for the long-term health of our planet and future generations.
Superior engineering and the latest construction technology significantly increases the energy-efficiency of your new modular home.
The process itself promotes energy efficient home construction. Your home is built from the inside out. With access to interior walls throughout the building process, typical air infiltration points are sealed better than with onsite construction. What this means to you is that the building envelope of your custom home is fabricated to be super energy efficient. This is a standard feature with modular construction. Increased insulation, high-tech sealants, and the use of advanced materials are just some of the reasons to decide on the advantages of modular building for your custom home.
Minimize your environmental impact and Financial outlay by outfitting your home with sustainable technology
The cost of a house can be counted in dollars, but the construction and ongoing costs of operating a home takes a toll on the environment that can be hard to measure. A growing number of people are determined to minimize both the environmental impact and their financial expenditure by equipping their homes with sustainable technology.
This is resulting in a boom in sustainable building that is driving higher levels of architectural and engineering innovation. Modular construction is the perfect building system to promote sustainable building. Several Green Building Programs literally award additional points for the use of modular construction because of the superior building process. Let Express Modular help you accomplish your required level of “green”: from simple energy efficiency to net-zero and beyond.

- “Express Modular gave me everything that I asked for and then supersized it. They built it so well that a year later, when I started adding solar panels to the garage roof, the consulting engineer said that the structure of the roof was more than strong enough to support the additional weight. The house is so tight that the combination of geo-thermal HVAC and the solar panels gives me seven to eight months of no electric bills.”
- “The floor plan is awesome – plenty of room. The cabinets & counters, bathroom fixtures, windows, doors, millwork, bathroom walls/floors, etc. look great. One will tell people that he enjoys his new home. The other three – we can observe by their expressions and actions that they are happy in the new surroundings. This move was a major improvement in their lives. Staff are pleased and excited. I appreciate so much the effort from you, the factory, and our local vendors…”
- “Thank YOU Don! We are very pleased with the results. Feel free to share the pics with potential clients and to use us as a reference. We will send more as we add art work etc.”
- “Express Modular gave us the freedom to design our home. They never said ‘No, we can’t do that’; Their response was always ‘let us see how we can make it work’.
