Modular construction is faster than traditional, site-built construction. But, there are more advantages of modular construction as well. Here are a five which you should consider few that may impact your decision on where to build.

  1. Precision Assembly

    The repetitive nature of in-factory construction allows builders to continuously improve equipment and processes that cannot be reproduced onsite. Cuts and connections are practiced and confirmed accurate. As the building progresses, frequent QA checks confirm strict adherence to specifications and codes. This means that there is consistent quality that’s reflected in the finished product.

  2. Weather Protection

    Building materials at jobsites are subject to all sorts of weather conditions. Water-soaked lumber can be prone to mold or weakened. Over time, exposure to the elements can diminish structural rigidity. That’s not the case in a factory. Modular homes are protected from the environment at all times and weather-sealed before they leave for the site.

  3. Reduced Waste

    Factory construction allows builders to keep materials in stock and ready to use. Throughout the construction process, remnant materials are used where possible instead of being discarded as scrap. Bulk ordering of materials also reduces packaging waste. Cutting construction waste is environmentally friendly and cost efficient. Less money spent on unused materials and waste management goes directly to your bottom line.

  4. Quality Control

    Every construction project is subject to state and local inspections. With in-factory construction, more checks are conducted regularly throughout the process to confirm that every cut and connection is right and tight. Issues are corrected immediately and inspectors confirm the building is 100% within spec before the building leaves for the site.

  5. Reduced Site Disruption

    Modular buildings are designed to stand on their own. They don’t require support from the foundation. This means they require less foundation work at the site which saves time and money, and creates more opportunities for placement. As you consider the needs and goals of your next project, consider these benefits and the speed of modular construction. For many, building offsite is the road to making better homes faster.

As we learned over the last weeks, Virginia is vulnerable to hurricane disasters and those living near the coast are more susceptible to to surging floodwater. Residents in these areas need tougher, stronger and more beautiful homes. Thus, the demand for modular homes which can resist 180 mph winds is increasing.

As modular home builders in VA, WV and NC we have improved our home building process to meet or exceed state and local building codes. Modular construction builds homes that are sturdier and more resilient than traditional construction. One big difference between traditional and modular construction is in fortifying these homes with the use of larger steel to anchor and stabilize the home's foundation. The modules themselves are also glued, bolted, and strapped in order to securely fasten the components together. Hence, they can stand up to rough, grinding wind. Built-in smart outlets are also an added feature in modular pilings. In the event of rising floodwater, the force of the water can be eliminated because water can flow-in and out of the openings.

Moreover, modular homes constantly undergo a series of QA inspections during construction to asure that these homes are safe and meet the state and local building codes. With modular building system, homeowners can now build tougher homes at an affordable price through a smarter, better construction process.

The use of premium materials coupled with advanced engineering technology is what makes modular homes exceptionally unique and sturdy. Smart computer programs are utilized to make customization possible in terms of designing the interior and exterior of the home. Meanwhile, bolts and straps are applied to the structure to ensure they meet or exceed all state and local codes.

Homes built through modular construction go through a series of inspections and quality checks throughout the process to ensure the highest quality end result. Because modular homes are manufactured in climate controlled factory-like settings, materials are not exposed to weather guaranteeing that they will be in perfect condition. Additionally, this type of building system means that construction projects are not subject to weather, theft, materials, or contractor delays. Modular building systems make constructing homes faster and more efficient than with traditional construction.

Moreover, modular homes are both " glued and screwed" since the modules are transported to the permanent site and then craned during assembly. Built to withstand these extreme pressures, this makes them even more sound homes than stick built construction. To find out more about modular homes, contact Virginia Building Home System.
