Modular Homes for Superior Construction, Lower Costs and Less Waste

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 02, 2018

Modular construction can be used to create long-lasting, high-quality homes that last. In general, "modular" means that home construction takes place in a factory, before being assembled onsite from modules.

Modular construction can be used to build high-end, high-quality homes because it allows for higher quality homes faster and for less money and time than traditional, "stick-built" construction.

Quality

Modular homes are built to a higher level of quality than stick-built homes, in part because they must be able to withstand the stresses of transport. Joints are tighter, fasteners are more accurately applied, and material is cut with more exactness. The modular construction process is also subject to more QA checks throughout construction, ensuring a superior and more sturdy home.

Saving Time and Money

The modular building process decreases construction time. Similar, custom stick-built homes can take one to two years to design and construct. In contrast, after the design stage, a modular home can be built in 6 to 8 weeks, because the foundation work on-site and home construction occur simultaneously; and factory construction leverages specialized construction teams, equipment and facilities. As a result, a modular home can cost less per square foot than an equivalent stick-built home.

Sustainable Building Practices

Modular construction supports sustainable building practices. Thirty to forty percent of the material used to construct a typical stick-built home ends up in a landfill. With the modular home construction process, an average of two percent of materials end up as waste.

Modular Homes Can Replace Homes for Hurricane Victims

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 24, 2018

There are far too many victims of Hurricane Florence that are looking to replace their homes. The destruction was so vast that traditional home builders and local contractors will be strapped from too little labor, too little time, and too much demand. The good news is that modular home manufacturing companies are more able to accommodate your replacement home needs in a timely manner. Modular homes for hurricane Florence victims has become the norm in other locations across the nation that have been hit by hurricanes and devastating storms. There are many benefits to choosing modular construction.

Basically, with modular construction, you are outsourcing the labor, materials and construction process, which allows you to get your new, custom designed modular home, faster than many of those people around you who may contract their home with local builders.

Modular homes are built to the same or higher standards than traditional homes, but in hurricane prone areas, modular homes are built even better. Built to withstand up to 140 mph winds and with reinforced joints, modular homes are sturdy and safe and more secure than traditional construction.

Modular homes can also be placed on pilings that are encased in cement and meet all new hurricane specifications. And, because modular homes can be custom designed, they can also be built to the original footprint in order to align with local zoning laws.

If you are a hurricane Florence victim who is in need of a replacement home, Contact Silverpoint Homes.

Wait. What is a Modular Home?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 05, 2018

A modular home is a house that is built of pre-fabricated sections referred to as modules. They are constructed away from a build site, transported to the site and fitted together. This type of prefabricated housing has become increasingly popular with newer technologies and a housing market that is seemingly constantly low in supply. New technologies have allowed these builds to become practically fully customizable and they generally can be built in less time than typical stick-built houses.

It is important to note; modular homes are not the same as manufactured homes or trailers. Modular homes are built to the same codes as site-built homes, and in most cases actually undergo a much more vigorous inspection process.

Got It. So, why build a Modular Home?

Modular builds afford homebuyers many benefits, in fact the modular housing industry is growing faster than any type of new-home construction. There are many reasons, for this, a few of which we have highlighted below:

  • Affordability - you can generally expect to spend ten to twenty percent less on a modular build
  • Quality – modular builds frequently have up to 30 percent more lumber, are built in a controlled environment and are unexposed to weather and outside elements
  • Time – modular builds, generally speaking, take months off of a build’s timeline
  • Less Stress – modular builds allow for a streamlined process that will not only save you money and time but possibly your marriage and assuredly your nerves

Ok, ok, but you sell them. Back it up.

The following organizations have acknowledged the advantages of the modular construction process:

  • National Institute of Standards and Technology
  • National Research Council
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • American Institute of Architects
  • S. Green Building Council
  • S. Department of Veterans Affairs
  • S. Army Corps of Engineers (1.)

Now is the Time to Build Your Dream Modular Home

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 31, 2018

At Silverpoint Homes we wanted to take a moment to ask you a question. Do you have a high definition television in your living room? At this point in time, these flat screen marvels are probably in more than just one room of your house, am I right?

Depending on when you purchased your HD TV, you may have overpaid. Prices have plummeted since they first came on the market, making you wonder why in the heck you didn’t just wait a bit longer to snag that technological wonder.

Purchasing a new home is very similar, but on a grander scale. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to buy, now is the time, but, unlike the price of techno gadgets, you have a much smaller window of opportunity.

With the economy on the rebound, the demand for new, quality built homes has increased. This means that the price of building materials will soon rise, and homebuilders will be forced to charge homebuyers more for the same home that they can purchase right now at a much lower cost.

Don’t miss your chance! Let’s discuss your new home now before the interest rates increase and you’ll find yourself being charged a higher per square foot price. There’s still time, but trust me, Silverpoint Homes have been in the business for over 15 years, and we know what’s right around the corner.

Contact us today and let’s set up a time to discuss building your new home.
