Is There a Downside to Modular Homes?

Once seen as a cheap, low-cost alternative when building a house, modular homes have come a long way over the years. Today, they’re known for being an affordable, high quality option for home buyers looking for the best value and full customization options. But is there a downside to modular homes? Not at all!

There are many myths about modular homes that stem from their confusion with prefab houses, but the truth is that modular homes offer the same quality and customization offered by a traditional “stick built” home and are often safer and more affordable.

What is a Modular Home?

Rather than a traditional stick built home, which is built from the ground up on site, custom modular homes are manufactured offsite in a climate-controlled environment and transported to your plot of land for assembly. Modular homes are completed in less time than traditional homes and produce less post-construction waste.

What are the upsides to going modular?

If you’ve been thinking about building your next house, choosing a modular home is a great option! They offer a number of money-saving advantages over stick-built homes without the need to sacrifice your ability to get exactly what you want out of your new home.

They’re affordable.

The controlled factory manufacturing process allows manufacturers to purchase materials in bulk rather than as-needed, which allows for greater savings and no chance of unexpected material costs. Modular homes also tend to be more energy efficient over stick-built homes, which will save you money on your monthly energy bills.

They’re fully customizable.

Modular homes are available in hundreds of unique floor plans, and you can customize them with your choice of finishes, siding, colors, and more. Whether you’re looking for a house with a basement, sunroom, front porch, or a deck…whatever you’re looking for in a home, it’s possible with a modular builder!

They’re built to last.

Modular homes are shown to stand up to hurricane-force winds and earthquake conditions. Because modular homes go through multiple inspection processes during and after manufacturing and assembly, you’ll know for sure your house will be a place to call home for decades to come.
