Changing the Perception – The New Custom Built Home –Modular Magnificence

How is a Modular Home different from a Manufactured Home or a Site Built Home?

Modular Homes, sometimes called prefabricated homes, are structures that are pre-built in sections called modules that are shipped to the building site and then placed together according to a detailed blueprint. Modular homes are nearly indistinguishable from Site built homes and retain the same, if not better, value in the realty market as the home ages.

Many people who fear the term “modular” do not truly understand the difference between modular, manufactured and site built homes. Before you write off the modular, it is well worth your time to read about what a modular home is, to know some common misconceptions about modular homes and how modular homes are different than a site built custom home.

Modular vs. Manufactured

Key main differences that distinguish a modular home from a manufactured home:

· Manufactured Homes

o Built on a Steel Beam and Axles.

o A true Mobile home –referred to as a single wide or a double wide trailer

o Generally placed in a trailer park or mobile home lot

o Often treated like an automobile and loses value over time

o Manufactured homes are all built to one standard no matter where they are placed. If you live in Maine, you have the same insulation in your home than if you were to live in a manufactured home in Florida. This is not the case for a modular or site built home.

o You get what you see in the “brochure”.

· Modular Homes

o Nearly identical to a site-built home

o Placed on a traditional foundation (including a basement or crawlspace)

o Traditional Construction Materials (2x4’s, drywall, wood trusses and superior insulation)

o Fully customizable- This is not a cookie cutter house as there are many additional items that can be added, changed and altered from the original plan.

o Built to International and State Standards which means they are built specifically for the location for which they will be taking residence. A modular in California would be able to withstand the occasional Earthquake while a home in Florida would have materials that withstand hurricane force winds.

o Increase in value to the home over time equal to that of a site built home.

Modular Homes and Site- Built Homes

There are some key reasons a modular home is superior to a site-built home. One of the main is that a modular home is fully capable of being adapted and customized just like a home built on site. As a matter of fact, a modular home has all the benefits of a site-built home plus some added advantages!

Why is modular better?

· Affordability – With modular you generally get more square footage per dollar than a site built home.

· Made in a controlled environment with less pests, mold and exposure to elements like rain or pollen. This means less damage and increased efficiency because weather will not stop us!

· Faster Return on Investment. Modular homes allow for site work and actual structure building to happen at the same time. This can mean a home is built in 50% less time!

· Flexible – Modular home can be built more affordably in areas that are more remote and can be added to easily upon request.

· Environmental Advantages for modular buildings. Modular homes can be 100% recycled. You can move your home and not lose any of your original investment. Reduction of waste and site disturbance are commonplace.

· Healthier. Being built in a controlled environment proves to be extremely beneficial by eliminating the risk of mildew, rust, sun damage and mold which can exacerbate respiratory problems whereas a site built home is at risk from these type of threats.
