Don’t mistake the term “modular” for “manufactured”. Manufactured homes (aka: mobile homes) are built more like a vehicle and made to be relocated at any time. Modular buildings are created just as sturdy as built-on-site units and are attached to the foundation in the same way. Once these homes are attached to the foundation, they can no longer be moved.

Modular Home Building 101:

How Does Buying a Modular Home or Building Save Time & Money?

Choosing to build your home with a modular design will reduce building time significantly. Ordinarily, constructing a home or building on-site takes months. But using a modular home builder provides the ability to complete the project within just weeks because the entire structure is built inside the manufacturing plant. And deciding to use a pre-built home will not force you to go without; modular homes and buildings may be customized to fit your dreams and needs just the same as any other build-out. Architectural engineers will assist with your design in the same way.

How Mariner Homes Saves You Time & Money

  •  Built Indoors

    Because modular construction is performed inside the factory, bad weather has no way of slowing down production.

  •  Building Inspections

    There is no waiting on municipal inspections as with typical on-site builds because all building inspections are performed at the manufacturing plant. By the time the building is removed from the factory, all building inspections have been completed.

  •  Durability

    Modular homes and buildings are so strong, they can withstand devastating winds up to 175 mph.

  •  Energy Efficient

    Modular buildings are made to save energy. As a matter of fact, they are also known as “Green Homes” (or Buildings).

  •  Valuable

    Modular homes and buildings are just as valuable as any unit built on-site. These are permanent and durable structures with the same depreciation rate with equal ability to obtain home loans. Tax rates will also be the same as site-built units.
    Once the modular home or building reaches its lot destination, you will still need to consider extra time and funding for other phases of the building project, such as adding electrical, plumbing and all other feature requirements for the home. In areas where basements are popular, this too will require additional time.

    The possibilities when deciding to buy a modular home or office building are endless. Anyone who has built a home or building both ways will surely agree that the best way to build a new home or office building is with modular construction.
