What Makes Modular Homes Different From Other Dwellings?, Oskaloosa, Iowa

If you’re in the market to build a house, it’s important to understand the difference between modular homes, mobile or manufactured homes, and site-built homes. Each type of residence has benefits that buyers may find valuable. Here, the team at Century Homes of Oskaloosa in Iowa explains the differences between modular and other types of housing.

What Makes Modular Homes Different?

Unlike homes constructed on-site, modular homes are fabricated in factories and relocated to a site. They aren’t affected by inclement weather because they’re built in climate-controlled factories. Modular homes are required to meet the same safety standards and building codes as houses built on-site and must be inspected and structurally approved before the sale.

Modular HomesModular homes are typically more expensive than mobile homes, which are sometimes called manufactured homes. Manufactured homes are usually transported on wheels while a modular home is transported on a flatbed truck. Unlike manufactured homes, modular homes can be custom designed, like site-built homes, and are legally classified the same as a site-built home once it’s constructed and placed on a permanent lot.

What Are the Advantages of Modular Homes?

Modular homes arrive at the site as pre-fabricated segments that are assembled with a crane. The homes can be made of any size, and once it’s completed, it’s difficult to discern the difference when compared to a house built on-site. They are also built faster and often more energy efficient. Additionally, modular homes are typically stronger and can withstand storms better than other types of homes.
