The Benefits of Modular Construction are Compelling.
Without realizing it, builders have used modular construction to improve the construction process for years by incorporating factory assembled components such as pre-hung doors, windows, and roof trusses. Modular construction is simply a natural extension of that process with large modules, pre-built in our manufacturing facility. From pre-wired electrical and rough plumbing to finished carpentry work, modules are delivered to your site with up to 80 percent of the home complete. The benefits are compelling:
Less Risk - Modular simplifies the building process because 80 percent of your structure can be built and inspected off-site in a controlled environment. This dramatically reduces your reliance on sub-contractors, and reduces any risk factors involved in the weather aspect of the building process.
Exceptional Building Quality - Custom Homes modular homes are designed to meet and exceed the Florida Building Codes and use the same quality materials as traditional construction. In addition, modular construction is subject to stringent and comprehensive design review and inspections by state approved authorities.
At Custom Homes of St. Augustine, our tradesman have access to tools, jigs, assembly tables, and material-handling equipment not found on a typical construction site, which results in a higher degree of precision and ultimately yields a stronger, more durable structure.
Modular is Greener - Because Custom Homes modular homes are built in controlled manufacturing facilities, tolerances and structures have less air infiltration. This results in more energy-efficient homes that may be eligible to receive the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star rating.
Studies suggest that with modular construction, there’s also a dramatic reduction in waste due to continuous recycling activities, the use of pre-cut lumber and a greater accuracy in cuts. Material is stored in the facility, which results in less waste from weather damage, and the efficiency of the modular manufacturing process reduces CO2 output to traditional site built construction.
Modular is Neighborhood-Friendly - Because 80 percent of modular construction occurs off-site, the majority of the on-site noise, dust, debris and traffic created by traditional construction are eliminated. This also means fewer hazards on the job sites and neighbors are less bothered by the construction.
