The homes are constructed in a controlled environment by professional craftsmen who are constantly monitored by quality control experts.
As modular homes are constructed in a factory, the equipment available to the craftsmen is far superior than that which is available to site builders. For example, cuts made by site builder could not possibly be as precise as those made by a component cutter in the factory. Modular homes also use glue nailed sheathing and decking with framing that exceeds code. The end result to the customer is a high quality, more precisely built home.
Federal laws regarding modular homes ensure that they are among the safest houses on the market in which to live. These laws include the requirement that modular homes have smoke detectors, incombustible materials around kitchen ranges and furnaces and escape windows to name but a few.
Unlike site built houses, modular construction can not be delayed by poor weather and also the building materials are never exposed to adverse weather conditions which can damage and warp expensive materials during the construction process. Materials damaged through exposure to the elements can result costly problems over time for the homeowner.
