Modular homes are gaining popularity in these recent modern times for a number of reasons. In this article, we’ll explore the many advantages of modular homes.
When most people hear the term “modular home,” they think that it automatically implies a cheaply built, or manufactured home that is more temporary than permanent. This is far from the truth, as a genuine modular home in Aspen must have all the characteristics of a traditional, permanent frame home. This is because the same code requirements must be applied to any residential structure.
One of the greatest modular home characteristics is that they have a greater range of flexibility in comparison to traditional on-frame homes. The steel undercarriage that supports floors, for example, is not needed in modular homes.
On the other hand, the entire structure of modular homes is pre-constructed and fabricated in a controlled, industrial environment or factory, and then transported to the job site. Most of the time, this process makes up for the entire 90% to 95% of all building processes that need to be done. Essentially, you are signing up for fast production of your home.
Sometimes referred as “System-built” homes, the unique engineering that goes into producing these structures is very efficient and even better, cost-efficient.
There are many economic advantages due to the efficiency of pre-fabricated parts. Assembling the parts on site cuts down on the building time, which with traditional homes, may take anywhere from half a year to several years.
