Modular Home Builders

The role of the modular home builders is generally different from the general contractors. You have a general contractor digging and pouring the foundation of the home, erecting the walls, putting on the roof and ultimately doing the insulation, wiring, heating and cooling systems, plumbing, flooring, cabinetry, carpeting, painting and the storage spaces. A modular homebuilder, on the other hand, just digs and pours the foundation and then shifts to another foundation till the sections of the modular home finally arrive.

All About The Modular Homes

The modular homes are prefabricated homes, of which the walls, ceilings and floors are built into modules. This is done in the clean and climate regulated confinements of a factory. A computer controls all the details of a modular home fabrication, and makes sure that the finished modules fit together with precision. Thus, the modular home builders boast of greater precision than is possible while following a traditional home construction processes. The insulation, wiring and plumbing in the modular homes are also factory-installed. Mostly, the entire thing is pre-examined by certified inspectors.

Modular home construction is a simple process, which takes the modular home builders weeks and not months to finish off the job.

The Making Of The Modular Homes

Modular home builders, unlike the general home contractors, do not require individual suppliers and all the things that are delivered to your home site comes in a finished module.

Modular homebuilders ensure that a crane lifts the delivered modules into the right (actual) place immediately after their arrival. Every module has to be connected to the adjoining modules and the foundation of the home.

There are certain modular home builders who will go to the extent of including landscaping as an integral part of the entire procedure. However, in this case, it would be advisable for you (as a homeowner) to enquire if the price will be added. On the other hand, when you find that you have saved a lot of money and have a home in weeks, instead of months, it will not seem to be a big issue to be paying for the landscaping.

Modular homes are ordered by the consumers and completed by the modular home builders; if you so desire, you can just buy the modular home kit and go about it alone.
