Modular vs. Site Built
Updated: Aug 24, 2019
By building in a climate controlled environment and using system-built assembly line efficiency, Green Homes is able to eliminates many of the variables that affect the quality of a site-built home.
Our industry mandated increased insulation and stringent building practices result in a factory-built home that is significantly more energy efficient. This will save the homeowner energy and money for years to come.
As a rule, factory-built homes are greener homes than those built on site and building in a factory setting reduces the threat of job-site theft and damage. These are problems that have plagued home builders in recent years and can lead to budget overruns.
Green Homes' craftsmen receive regular training and are permanently employed. This is another advantage of a factory home builder over a site builder as often site builders have to deal with the shortage of skilled labour. This can result in unskilled workers on the job site and ultimately lead to compromises in quality!
To ensure a secure trip to your property, factory-built homes use additional framing lumber for structural strength. Adhesive, screws and steel strapping are used to fasten components together to ensure structural stability during transport.
Green Homes builds a wide variety of modular and manufactured homes. Our homes are built to conform to, and in many ways exceed, local and national building codes.
Each home is built in our climate-controlled factory then shipped to the customer’s building site, where it is assembled by authorized distributors.
