Buying a factory-built or prefabricated home: the advantages for you
Advantages of buying a manufactured home or a manufactured homeBuying a prefabricated house usually allows you to get your money’s worth. First, construction in a controlled indoor environment ensures that the organization of work is optimized. The work is assembly-line and several processes are standardized and/or automated. Work schedules are fixed and there is excellent coordination of work between the various trades. Labor is also much less expensive in the factory than on site. The accessibility of tools and materials saves valuable time. We also ensure that there is no unnecessary loss of raw materials.
Since factory-built home manufacturers produce a very large number of homes, the materials are purchased in large quantities, which allows for savings in volume . By obtaining materials from suppliers at more affordable prices than on-site contractors, prefabricated home manufacturers can significantly reduce their production costs and offer a product with excellent value for money.
Finally, unlike a conventional home project that often ends up costing much more than expected due to complications, unforeseen events, or errors, pre-engineered home builders are known to respect costs. Indeed, the optimal organization of work in the factory makes it possible to correctly estimate the costs and to remain faithful to your budget .
It is no longer true o say that manufactured homes cannot be beautiful and stylish. In fact, prefabricated home builders now offer a large selection of models, plans and materials .
As the Société Québécoise des Manufacturiers d’Habitation (SQMH) reminds us, “the flexibility of the manufacturing methods makes it possible to meet all requirements, regardless of the type of layout or the architectural style”.
When you select your pre-fabricated house manufacturer, an advisor presents you with many models of houses in various styles: country, classic, contemporary, European, etc., from which you can choose. If the interior plan of the house does not suit you, you can ask for certain modifications to be made to meet your requirements.
In addition, you have the opportunity to select the materials and colors to be used for the finish yourself, to give your home a look that really suits you.
Want to travel off the beaten path and have a unique or eclectic prefab home? You have the possibility to draw your own plans in order to obtain your dream house , unique in its kind. With the new advanced technologies developed in the field of prefabricated houses, we are a long way from the time when prefabricated houses all looked the same. You’ll be spoiled for choice, you’ll see!
There was a time when factory-built homes didn’t have a great reputation for performance, but today the situation is very different. Prefabricated houses not only save energy, but they are also more ecological than conventional houses. And all this for a more than reasonable price.
Many prefabricated houses are energy efficient. They are known for their superior insulation and can save a lot on the cost of heating. Manufactured houses are also resistant, well sealed and built using healthy, durable and ecological materials. The factory construction of houses in modules, panels, pieces on pieces or in kits, makes it possible to considerably reduce the loss of materials. In addition, the carbon footprint of a manufactured home is lower than that of a conventional home, and the air quality is superior.
In addition to all these advantages, you also have the possibility of adding certain optional products which can further enhance the ecological and energy quality of your home. These options include solar panels, geothermal energy, home automation, LED lighting, heat or rainwater recovery systems and gray water recycling.
