Unlike site-built homes, which can take many months to complete, Modular construction reduces build time by over 35%. Quicker construction time can save you money and reduce some of the stress of building your new home. The faster your home is built, the sooner you can enjoy it. And because most modular construction can be completed in less time than site-built, the cost of interim construction financing is significantly reduced or eliminated.

A Review on The Benefits of Modular Construction

What Is A Modular Home?



A modular home is built in a controlled factory environment in sections, or modules, and is engineered and built to the state or local building codes where the home will be located. Factory-built modules are then transported to the site, where they are installed on permanent foundations and completed by professional installers.

Built Faster, Less Worry
Unlike site-built homes, which can take many months to complete, modular construction reduces build time by over 35%. Quicker construction time can save you money and reduce some of the stress of building your new home. The faster your home is built, the sooner you can enjoy it. And because most modular construction can be completed in less time than site built, the cost of interim construction financing is significantly reduced or eliminated.

Additional Savings
Purchasing a Champion modular home can bring additional benefits. As the largest modular homebuilder in America, our size and expertise in the modular housing industry gives us the ability to pass along savings we achieve through modern construction methods, value engineering and volume purchases of building materials. Although some would call these savings economies of scale, we call it giving our homebuyers more home for their money.

Quality
At Champion, our commitment to quality starts with the first nail. Every module of our modular homes is professionally engineered and built by experienced and skilled craftsmen. Throughout the building process, our homes are continually inspected to ensure they comply with the appropriate building code, and also are built to our high quality standards. With years of experience in modular construction, we know quality and build it into every one of our homes.

Plus all of the advantages of site-built homes
What’s the difference between site-built and modular homes? A site-built home is constructed on site over a period of many weeks; a modular home is assembled on site and is usually finished within a week. Otherwise, both are constructed to adhere to the same building codes and zoning regulations. So, why not take advantage of modern modular construction when considering your new home? Our modular homes come in a variety of styles including ranches, cape cods and two-story models, just to name a few. Many of our models offer exceptional architectural options, exterior elevations and interior designs. Due to regional uniqueness and design needs, models will vary. Use our Find a Home search to view the different modular homes available in your area.

How are Modular Homes Built?



The building process begins at the design phase. Most modular producers use state of the art computer aided design programs, which aid them in customizing floor plans and producing drawings, and material requirement lists. Once designed, the building process begins. This process is similar to what you've seen during the construction of houses in your neighborhood. The quality materials and care for detail, and the same building codes and standards are observed. As you can see, today's modular homes are models of efficiency and quality assurance.

How Long Does the Building Process Take?



Speed and consistent quality are two of the many advantages for choosing to choose modular housing. On the average, a home consisting of two sections will be built in the factory within a couple of weeks. Once the manufacturing process is complete, typically with interior finish right down to carpets and wall finish, the unit must be transported to your home site and placed on the foundation. Final completion is usually handled by a local builder or general contractor and includes connection of utilities to the home, and a short list of finish work. Normally the home is completed in two or three weeks.

What's the difference between "Modular Home" and a "Manufactured Home?"



Manufactured homes, sometimes referred to as mobile homes, are constructed to a different building code. Many communities have restrictions on where manufactured homes can be located. Modular and site-built homes on the other hand, are constructed to the same building code required by your stat, county, and specific locality and therefore are not restricted by building or zoning regulations. Your new modular home is inspected at the assembly plant during each phase of construction. Evidence of this inspection is normally shown by application of a State or inspection agency label of approval.

What do Modular Homes look like?



Modular homes look like any other home. Today's building technology has allowed modular manufacturers to build most any stile of home from a simple ranch to a highly customized contemporary. And, it doesn't stop with houses.

Modular producers are busy building banks, schools, office buildings, motels and hotels. Chances are you've been in many modular structures and probably never realized it.

Can I Design my own Modular Home?



Yes. Most modular companies allow the customer complete design flexibility. But remember every manufacturer is different. Engineering capabilities and product specifications will vary from company to company.

Is a Modular Home better than a site built home?



The decision is clear. With a modular home you get efficiency and quality control. Efficiency begins with modern factory assembly line techniques. Your home travels to workstations, with all the building trades represented. Work is never delayed by weather, subcontractor no shows or missing material.

Quality engineering and modular construction techniques significantly increase the energy efficiency of your modular home. A quality control process provides 100% assurance that your home has been inspected for code compliance and workmanship. In-plant inspectors as well as independent inspection agencies inspect the home on behalf of your state and local government.

I have heard a two story modular home is better sound proofed than conventional construction.



It is true that a modular home transfers noise at a much lower rate than stick built homes. This is generally a function of the modular design and not an active program from the modular manufacturer. In a two-story design this is especially true because of the type of the structure. Each modular component needs a floor system to set the walls on. In stick built construction the ceiling of the first floor acts as the support for the second floor. This can be a 2X10 or a 2X12. As a result if you drop a book in the hallway upstairs that noise has a direct contact through the ceiling of the first floor and makes noise. In modular construction the ceiling for the first floor is a separate structure from the floor of the second floor. As a result that same book hitting the floor does not travel through the house.

Are Modular Homes difficult to finance or insure?



There is no distinction between modular or site built homes as far as appraisal or financing. Banks and lending institutions treat both types of construction the same, Likewise, there is no difference in insuring the modular property.

When you add up all the labor, material, and time savings inherent in the modular building process, you will find that the price of a modular home is generally lower than a site built home of comparable size.
