A new home is a big decision a family will make. In many areas of the United States, modular housing demands almost half of the real estate market. This is perhaps the quickest growing segment of the housing industry in the 2000's. The modular home-buyer today is one who has investigated the home market and is very knowledgeable of the it and what costs are involved.
Modular homes are built in a controlled environment. They are engineered precisely for structural durability. Quality control is important and is maintained by inspection throughout the whole construction process. To insure a safe trip to your job site, modular homes are built especially well, using high quality materials. More lumber is used in framing your home and most manufacturers us GLUE as well as screw or nail the sections of your home together. It is common for the outside walls to be 2"X6" as opposed to common 2"X4" in a traditionally built home.
