Q. Is it better to have my house built in a factory controlled environment?
A.
Yes, absolutely. Building homes inside a factory has many distinct advantages over a "on site"
built home. The most obvious is the fact that material is not subject to adverse weather conditions
such as rain, snow, ice and heat. This allows homes to be built year round with a stable work force.
Working inside a production facility; in a controlled environment, means no delays or lost days due
to weather. The quality modular home manufacturer protects all building materials from the
weather;otherwise, materials would be too warped or bent to fit into their precise jigs for wall panels
or trusses. In-factory construction quality is invariably superior to what can be done on a job site. Parts cut
with a hand saw or a hand-held power saw at a job site cannot possibly be as precise as those cut with a
$10,000 radial saw or $100,000 component cutter in a factory. Factory fastening methods are also
demonstrably superior because they use pneumatic tools, which drive fasteners to precise depths
- no under-driving and no shiners.

Q. So the quality of a modular home is the same as a "on site" built home?
A. Actually modular homes are of better quality. Most manufacturers have continuous, on line, quality control
inspections. Third party inspectors monitor the home, on the line, to assure that each phase of each home meets
building code compliance standards. The typical modular home utilizes 33% to 40% more lumber than a site built
home. More lumber means more structural strength in order to ship the home over the open road and to lift and
set the home upon the foundation. Modular homes are also highly wind and hurricane resistant structures. Many
modular home manufacturers build their homes from the inside out. This enables the factory crew to caulk, foam
and insulate the home in ways that cannot be done in the field by site builders.
