Building a New Modular Home

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 31, 2019

If you’re still considering a new home over purchasing an existing home, we really need to talk soon.

New home construction is booming, as homebuyers are educating themselves on all the advantages that come with new over old. We’re experiencing a lot of interest from West Virginia buyers all the way down to North Carolina. These future homeowners know there’s never been a better time to build. How can they be so sure? Here are a few reasons.

  1. Energy Efficiency – The homes we’re building today use state of the art materials and systems that are nearly twice as efficient as homes built just a few years ago. That means lower energy consumption, less environmental impact and a more responsible home.
  2. Availability Now – With interest rates remaining low and demand growing, projections are the demand for new homes will soon outpace the home building industry’s ability to keep up. We have scheduling opportunities now, but they are filling up fast.
  3. As demand rises, prices will too. We’re still experiencing a pricing advantage on labor and materials, creating a window of opportunity that is steadily closing.

If you are thinking about making the move to a new home, then let’s talk. Contact Silverpoint Homes to schedule a time to discuss your ideas, needs and preferences. We’ll help you evaluate your choices and begin the process of creating the right home for your family.

Benefits of Owning A Modular Home – Lincolnton, NC

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 12, 2019

Modular home solutions in and around Lincolnton are simply a better value than traditional “stick-built” homes. The reasons are many but it simply boils down to quality and cost. When you compare the square foot construction cost of modular construction to stick-built, there is no comparison. The modular home’s construct build time as compared to stick-built is much faster. Add to that that modular homes are much more energy-efficient and are fully customizable, you’ve got to look long and hard at why you’d ever settle for stick-built designs ever again.

Since modular homes are largely built indoors in a factory-like setting, the finished products are covered and transported to their new locations where they are assembled by a builder. A modular home is not a mobile home. It is simply a home that is built off-site. Because modular homes are built indoors, they can be completed in a matter of a few weeks, as opposed to months. They do not see the typical on-site delays caused predominantly by the weather. Modular homes must conform to specific rules, guidelines and building codes that often surpass those of traditional on-site homes.

Whether you’re considering a large 3145 sq foot home like our “Buckeye II” or a smaller 1456 sq ft ranch home like our “Noble” , SilverpointHomes can get your custom built modular home solution built for the best value pricing in Lincolnton.

The following are benefits of choosing a modular home:

  1. Modular homes can be more affordable than site-built homes. Their shorter build time will save you money on the overall construction. Home inspections are not needed, as these are all done in the factory.
  2. Modular homes are much more energy-efficient, so your monthly expenses will be substantially less. They also are environmentally friendly. There are a great variety of homes from which to choose, and many architects specialize in designing modular homes. As with any home, modular homes can be expanded.
  3. By purchasing a modular home instead of a site-built home, you will get a new home sooner and much cheaper than you would otherwise if you are building a standard, non-luxury home.
  4. It is quicker build. The efficiency allows you to cut down on building time, because much of the assembly you will have to do is already done. Many modular buildings can take just a day to assemble.
  5. Portability. While modular buildings are generally built to be permanent structures, some designs can be disassembled, so you can pick up and leave anytime you desire.

If you are designing your own home, it is important to ask specific questions, as each manufacturer has different set of guidelines. Modular homes offer hundreds of personalized features that include (but are not limited to) ceramic floors, solid-surface counter tops, various cabinet styles and wood species, exterior finishes, plumbing fixtures, etc. You can essentially customize your home.

You can create any style of modular home you wish, whether you want a traditional center-hall colonial or a Mediterranean. They do not all look alike. Modular homes have no design limitations. You can add any style of window or architectural detail that you desire. In short, you can create your own dream house.

Quality Modular Homes At A Price You Can Afford - Beckley, WV

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 16, 2019

Building your new home can be an intimidating experience. As modular home builders, one of the most rewarding experiences comes from those who became frustrated when working with traditional stick-built home builders regarding just how much home they were going to get for their dollar. Luck for many, they delayed pushing the go button in order to give modular home construction a look only to find that for the same money they were going to get so much more out of their construction dollar. Everyone is essentially on tight budgets, but for those of you young people out there,modular construction empowers just everyone a path to a super high quality new home.

Because modular construction starts in a manufacturing warehouse, the building materials are screened for quality before they ever arrive the build site. For many (if not most) traditional stick-built construction firms, there is always high pressure to build around poor quality materials that are delivered to the site. Those pressures include the cost of returning and replacing poor quality materials, the time delays associated with the same, and the managerial oversight required to manage the returns. Once again, that is a non-issue with modular construction as the vast majority of the materials are screened and framed before arriving at the build site.

Indeed,modular building offerings to West Virginia will make you see the home building process in a whole new and positive light. If you are interested of building your dream home faster, stronger, and for less money than you thought possible, Silverpoint Homes is ready to lead you in every step along the way.
