Why Modular Homes Are Far More Superior Than Traditional Homes

There are many reasons as to why modular homes are becoming more and more popular. For the most part, modular construction eliminates most of the common issues and challenges that are encountered in traditional, stick-built construction.

The first benefit to modular construction is the construction process and time. Delays to project completion are common when you stick-build traditionally. Bad weather, equipment and crew delays, materials shortages, and theft are major causes of delays when building on-site and outside. But with the modular construction process, each module is pre-fabricated in an indoor environment where all of these delays are eliminated. Equipment is cutting-edge while the builders are skilled and experienced. Through this combination, construction time is hugely decreased and the project delivery date is always met.

Another benefit of modular homes is sturdiness and durability. Traditionally site built homes use use only nail guns for assembly. But the modular building system, utilizes strapping, adhesives, screws, and bolts to fasten frames and components together. This makes the structural integrity of modular homes must be far superior to traditional homes as it endures lifting and transporting to its final destination. At Virginia Homes every modular home meets or exceeds state and local building codes and can withstand winds up to 140 mph.

Advantages of Modular Home Construction

Modular construction is faster than traditional, site-built construction. But, there are more advantages of modular construction as well. Here are a four 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.

    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. For more information on modular construction, contact Virginia Homes Building Systems.

More and more people are interested in green living, not only in their lifestyles, but in their homes. Those who are interested in building a home are more cautious of the environmental consumption and impact. Many homebuyers are interested in owning greener and more energy-efficient homes. Thus, many are now turning to modular homes because they offer sustainability and greener options and advantages over conventionally built homes.

Modular homes are constructed from sustainable materials to minimize their carbon footprint. Carbon footprints are the total carbon dioxide emissions released into the atmosphere by specific human activity. Modular home building systems consistently address this environmental concern and build homes with reduced construction waste by better usage of materials especially wood products. Through the advanced building technology, materials for the modules are precisely cut and constructed meaning less human error resulting in less waste of raw materials.

Furthermore, modular construction utilizes energy efficient materials such as double-hung low emissivity windows and doors and high strength adhesives, which create a much more air tight environment. Homeowners greatly benefit from these energy-efficient homes which lead to lower energy consumption and costs.
