What is a modular home?
Modular homes are built in a factory setting, indoors, where they are never subjected to adverse weather conditions. The sections move through the factory, with the company's quality control department checking them after every step. Finished modules are covered for protection, and then transported to your home site. They are placed on a pre-made foundation, joined, and completed by your local Triple M retailer or builder.
How long does it take to build a modular home?
That depends on your design, but some modular homes can be built in our factory in as little as 3 weeks. And, since modulars are built indoors, there's never a weather delay. It usually takes another 2-3 weeks for the retailer or builder to complete the home once it's delivered to the building site.
Don't all modular homes look alike?
No, and unless you were there to see the house delivered and assembled, you might not guess it's a modular home. Triple M Housing uses computer aided design programs to draw plans to your specifications, or to modify one of their standard plans to suit your needs, so nearly any home plan can be turned into a modular home.
Can I save money by building a modular home?
Construction costs for a modular home are sometimes less per square foot than for a similar site-built home. There are other cost-saving features:
- Our modular homes are very energy efficient, which helps reduce your heating and cooling costs.
- Your home will probably be ready to move into much sooner than if you wait for a builder to construct a house on-site.
Does a factory built modular homes have a warranty?
Most factory home builders will warranty their product. Every Triple M home is backed by a comprehensive 10 year warranty. Ask your Triple M retailer or builder for terms and conditions of our warranty.
