5 Reasons to Go Modular
Here are 5 big advantages of modular additions over site-built additions:
1. Twice as Fast
Modular home additions take much less time to build, often half the time of a site-built addition. You are typically back in your home within 4 weeks.
2. No Mold or Dry Rot
Modular additions are immune to environmental degradation problems because they are built in a climate-controlled environment.
Since modules must be shipped from a factory to the site, they are constructed with significantly more framing material than site-built additions.
4. 10-15% Cost Savings
Factory building is more efficient — and therefore less costly — than on-site building. Plus there are no costs from weather-related material degradation.
5. Quality Control
Our high-quality control standards ensure that our modular additions often undergo over 80 inspections during construction.
