The Benefits of Modular Construction

 

Stronger Homes

To withstand the rigors of transportation and crane setting, there is typically over 20% more material used in modular construction. Independent studies have shown that homes built this way stand up to extreme conditions such as hurricanes much better than site-built homes. Our homes actually weigh much more than a similar style stick built house. The combination of reduced cycle time, more efficient construction, unlimited customization, and a growing shortage of skilled trade’s people are the primary reasons many builders are switching from traditional stick building to modular home construction.

 

Cost Advantage

Modular homes cost less to build. Modular home builders purchase supplies in bulk and can build multiple parts of the home at the same time. This reduces the cost of building which is transferred to the customer. The reduced cost allows people to purchase more square footage for the same money they may have spent on a site-built home.

 

No Weather Delays or Damage

We build in a climate-controlled environment using dry materials. Your home is weather tight upon arrival. Our custom modular homes are built with components constructed in a controlled factory environment to the same building codes as traditional site-built housing. Just as the materials are protected from the weather, so is the craftsman who is building your home. Naturally, anyone would do a far better job working indoors during the winter or in rain than if they were out in the field trying to build a house. Far more.

 

Guaranteed Price

You will receive a guaranteed price of your new home. Once the final plans have been approved, your home is priced and put under contract. The price that has been contracted is the price that will be paid when the home is delivered. Cost overruns due to on –site design changes or extended construction delays, typical with stick built homes, are virtually eliminated. Guaranteed price means just that.

 

Shorter Build Time

By utilizing efficiencies unavailable in the field, and “parallel construction paths” only available with off-site construction, you can often realize substantial time savings. Superior quality control of modular building reduces waste and provides a faster completion time, 30 – 60 days, than site-built construction.

 

Inherently Greener

According to Steven Winter, Chairman of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED For Homes program, “Because [systems-built homes] are built in a factory and much of the lumber is pre-cut, there is less scrap and waste; the cut-off pieces are often ground up and recycled; the central location of a factory means no wasted transportation to get workers to an isolated job site, so there’s savings in fuel and energy. So, in a whole array of material savings, time savings, and energy savings attributes, systems built homes go a long way toward achieving green objectives.”

 

Naturally more Energy Efficient

Our construction process allows for easier identification and filling of gaps around pipes, electrical outlets, windows, doors and exterior sheathing. Not only does this make the home tighter, but allows for less air infiltration and advanced energy efficiency, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs. The increased efficiency of modular home construction generally results in greater value for the homeowner.

 

Heightened Quality Assurance and Accountability

Each modular project is inspected by an appropriate state building inspector after going through a rigorous Quality Assurance and inspection process at each phase of construction. We follow all building codes for structures within the specific state of the project and plans are approved by licensed and registered engineers.

 

Customization Made Easy

Computerization has enabled American Showcase Modulars to offer a customization approach and to design any modular home to meet the particular needs of a homeowner.
