Freeport Industries: The next trend in home building is modular

August 8, 2018

Building a home as opposed to buying one may seem like an overwhelming choice for those who have never undertaken the challenge. They may not have the expertise or even the time to look after a home-building project that requires a whole host of considerations, that includes everything from sourcing a suitable piece of land to finding the right group of contractors and subcontractors for the job.

What prospective home builders may neglect to consider, however, is the fact that they can use modular home builders to design their dream home. Companies such as Freeport Industries, British Columbia’s leading builder of modular homes and commercial structures, often hear from clients who want to build their own home but prefer a less complicated, more streamlined process. They are looking to move away from concerning themselves with unpredictable project timelines; having to oversee site work to ensure the project is running the way it should; and confirming that the best building products are being used.

Those who choose the modular home building route have peace of mind knowing that they will receive the highest quality product, as all of the building materials are assembled in a climate-controlled environment that is weather-sealed, preventing possible damage from outdoor exposure. A modular home build is also subject to multiple quality-control tests throughout the build, giving further assurance to the owner that the end result will be built with top-quality materials and custom-tailored to their specifications.

Modular home building  can offer a price guarantee. Unlike traditional home building- which can often be costlier than initially agreed upon because projects can get delayed due to weather or even labor shortages- modular home building is an on-time, on-price process. Freeport Industries takes it one step further and offers their customers price-fixed contract models for peace-of-mind financial assurance. As well, modular home building can frequently be an economical alternative to traditional builds. Companies like Freeport can offer more affordable pricing as their ability to buy building materials in much larger quantities, coupled with the efficiencies that production-line building can offer, make the whole building process a much more feasible alternative.

Finally, modular home building is known to be a significantly faster alternative to traditional home building. Studies show that modular home construction can reduce construction time by up to 40 per cent when compared to traditional construction methods, reducing carrying costs substantially for the new owners, thereby reducing unwanted stress. Bottom line- home owners can move in sooner when they are transitioning into their custom-built home which in turn will save them time and money.

With all of these factors to consider when it comes to modular homes, it seems like this may be the next trend in the evolution of home building. For more information visit
