Modular Builds

Most of the materials - from framing, roofing, and plumbing to cabinetry, interior finish, and electrical - are identical to what you would find in a conventional home or building. The most striking thing about a modular home is not anything you can see, nor how it is made, but where it is made: in a modern factory designed to build good-quality modular homes and buildings.

Many consumers assume that the primary advantage of modular technology is lower prices. That is the third most important reason for building a modular home. Faster construction time is the second, and superior quality being the first.

  • Workforce is trained and closely supervised
  • Larger, more powerful, and more sophisticated equipment
  • Assembly with precision jigs
  • Use of the highest quality, kiln-dried lumber
  • Construction in a climate controlled facility
  • Construction meets or exceed local and provincial codes
  • Unparalleled structural strength
  • Superior energy efficiency
  • Rigorous quality control systems
  • Extended warranty coverage

The Modular Advantage in Cost

Manufacturers of prefab homes and buildings are able to build more affordably than the average builder. This is due to the following advantages:

  • Volume purchases of materials, which allows modular manufacturers to secure significant discounts
  • Lower labor costs: Experienced factory workers are well paid, with good benefits, but they do not command the wages paid to professional carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and painters
  • Assembly-line efficiencies: Organizing the construction process with inventory controls, power tools and equipment, and quality-control systems enables the factory crews to produce a home with greater efficiency than a handful of construction workers building in the field
  • Less material loss: Bad weather does not damage the materials
  • Less pilferage and vandalism: Factories are easier to secure than building sites
  • Less waste: By working with standardized dimensions, modular manufacturers are better able to make optimal use of materials and avoid waste
