When shopping for a new home, make sure to consider the advantages of modular construction. These homes are built in environmentally protected building centers to reduce the impact of the elements and then must be designed with the strength to transported to the home site. A central construction area for trade workers and less material waste during the building process results in a 15-20% savings over comparable site-built homes. Not only do you own a stronger, more energy efficient home. You also save money.
When deciding between a modular or manufactured home, it is important to understand the differences between the two. Modular homes allow for more architectural design freedom. Because they are built to local codes, modular home placement is typically less restricted. Using this construction method you get more home for your money.
