The economic, social and environmental impact of construction has been the cause of various transformations in the industry, both to increase productivity and to achieve a more sustainable type of construction. Among these transformations we find construction methods related to modularization.
What is a modular home?
It is a house made in a certified factory, which is transported by modules to the field where it will be assembled by qualified professionals. Once mounted, the desired finishes will also be applied.
On the one hand, this type of house is an excellent solution for those who want to build a home in a short time. On the other, it is a building erected in a more efficient and sustainable way compared to a traditional construction.
But the advantages do not stop there, so we are going to list all the benefits of a modular construction:
1. Construction speed
Home construction projects can be completed 30-50% faster than using traditional construction methods. For those who have an urge to move, this may be a good solution.
In general, these houses can be built in a period of between 3 and 6 months, depending on their complexity. This is because the houses are built in specialized factories, thus increasing efficiency.
When finished, these modules are transported to the field, assembled, and finished with final touches. In this type of construction, the problems related to meteorological factors are quite small, because a large part of the construction takes place inside the factory.
2. Durable and safe materials
Modular buildings are designed so that the materials last a long time.
Contrary to what may be thought, modular houses do not have less quality in construction or finishes compared to houses that are built following the traditional method, since the exterior modules can be manufactured with cement, wood or insulating panels, among other materials. For their part, the interior modules are built to offer excellent thermal, acoustic and firefighting conditions.
It is extremely important to choose a modular construction company that offers you good options and that explains all the advantages of the different types of materials that can be used in the manufacture of the modules.
Remember that the factories where the modules are produced are certified and the levels of quality and support are quite high. Being built inside a building, the materials always remain protected from the meteorological agents that characterize each area and guarantee the highest quality.
3. Environmentally friendly materials
Modular buildings are more environmentally friendly: they are often built with recycled materials and / or that do not affect the planet so much. Besides that, the fact that they are made in factories and from certain moulds, inevitably means that their construction generates less garbage and waste.
Another advantage of modular construction is that it can ensure that you are opting for a more sustainable construction process, from start to finish.
4. Effective cost
One of the great stressors when building a house is the problems or the necessary improvements that arise, as well as the consequent associated costs, which were not foreseen in the beginning.
This is one of the great advantages of modular homes, because when the details are defined, such as the acceptance of the project and the plant, materials and finishes, the price no longer undergoes any further changes. In addition, problems will not arise as in a traditional construction.
5. Possibility of adding or removing modules
As the name suggests, a modular house is built in modules. For this reason, there is the possibility of increasing or removing modules over time, without requiring changes to the main structure of the house.
The modular house can be easily reformed and adapted to your needs, for example, in the event that the family increases and you need one more division, that you buy a vehicle and it is necessary to have a garage to store it, or that you build a swimming pool and want to have a convivial area close to it. These modules can be designed depending on what you need, since the flexibility of these constructions is another of their key benefits.
