If you're in the market for a new home, you may be considering modular construction. This type of construction offers many advantages over traditional building methods, including speed of construction and affordability. But one of the biggest benefits of modular homes is that they are built in a climate-controlled environment. In this blog post, we'll discuss the advantages of a climate-controlled environment for the construction of a modular home building.

Modular homes are built in factories

One of the biggest advantages of a climate-controlled environment is that it protects your home from the elements. Moisture, in particular, is one of the most problematic elements in construction. Moisture can ruin the overall integrity of a finished home.

Modular homes are built in factories, which means they're protected from the rain, snow, and wind.

When construction occurs on-site, there is a risk of water infiltration, which often results in long-term structural problems well after construction is completed.

A climate-controlled environment eliminates this risk, ensuring that your home is built to last.

Construction is Faster

Another advantage of modular homes is that they're built in a factory setting. This means that construction can be completed much faster than if it were taking place on-site.

On-site construction is often delayed due to weather conditions, which can extend the overall timeline of the project.

In a factory setting, construction can be completed without delay, resulting in a shorter timeline and a quicker completion date for your new home. Modular homes can sometimes be completed anywhere from 60-120 days (depending on the scope of the project).

Modular Homes are Energy Efficient

In a climate-controlled environment, builders can create houses that are free of dampness, airtight, and highly accurate. As a result, these prefabricated residences can save you money on your energy bills. 

In fact, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, “Modular homes are built to exceed energy codes and use 30-40% less energy than site-built homes.”

This is because climate-controlled construction creates a tight envelope around your home, which prevents heat transfer. As a result, your home will be better insulated and more energy-efficient.
