Why Homeowners Should Consider Modular Homes
Building your modular home has its unique advantages compared to traditional, site-built homes. Whether you’re looking for a higher quality build or want to customize your home to fit your family’s lifestyle, there are multiple reasons why homeowners choose modular homes.
MODULAR HOME MATERIALS ARE PROTECTED FROM WEATHER
Our modular homes are constructed in an indoor environment that remains unaffected by day-to-day weather. Moisture, in particular, is one of the most problematic elements within the construction process and can ruin the overall integrity of a finished home.
When wood is exposed to consistent moisture during outdoor, on-site construction, warping can occur and compromise the integrity and sturdiness of the home’s elements. Even if the warping is subtle, the effects can and will be seen in the finished home long after the construction is completed.
By constructing the home’s modules in a climate-controlled environment, the risk of warping wood and moisture infiltration is mitigated, resulting in a sound, uncompromised home.

MODULAR CONSTRUCTION ALLOWS FOR FASTER BUILDING TIME
On-site construction presents a number of moving parts involving transporting materials and involving multiple teams, resulting in more opportunities for delays and mistakes.
Since modular homes are pre-constructed in a climate-controlled environment, the risk of delays is diminished. Modules are built, then brought to and assembled at the build site, meaning that they can be completed anywhere from 60-120 days (depending on the scope of the project). Only a controlled construction environment allows for the combination of quality, efficiency, and speed that on-site construction can’t touch.

CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS CREATE AN ENERGY-EFFICIENT HOME
Constructing homes in a climate-controlled facility allows builders to construct homes that are uncompromised by moisture, air-tight, and highly precise. As a result, these modular homes can consume less energy purely from the soundness of the final constructed home. Homeowners will enjoy long-term energy savings.
Another challenge that plagues on-site construction is the management and reduction of waste. Controlled environments, with the benefit of readily available materials and the elimination of environmental risks, will not produce nearly as much waste as an on-site project. This translates to a smaller environmental footprint and lower overall costs for the homeowner.
MODULAR HOMES ARE HIGHLY CUSTOMIZABLE
A common misconception about modular homes is that they can only be altered in minimal ways, changing the smallest of elements. However, with Rochester Homes, you can customize numerous elements to create a home that fits you and your family’s needs.
While you can easily select surface level aspects such as your interior trim, window color, and finish options, many large elements of the home can also be customized such the square footage, ceiling height or addition or a garage or patio.
The choices are (almost) endless – some of the most popular options are:
- Increasing roof pitches
- Adding gables and dormers
- Exterior trim around windows
- Upgrading to quartz countertops
- Island configurations in your kitchen
- Wood doors in a variety of profiles
