Potential home buyers are presented with many options when buying a new house for themselves. In the process, there is a chance they might get stuck with choosing the right one. There are many different types of homes for them to pick from. The main ones include modular, manufactured and mobile homes. Read on to know which type of home to consider as your new house.
These types of homes are built within a factory in accordance with every state, local, and regional building codes. Modular homes are built as multiple sections of the house. The sections are installed and completed by professional constructors on site. Houses with multiple floors are joined with the use of cranes. The houses are checked by a local code inspector to determine if the house is able to meet the building codes and the electrical wiring is working.
This type of home is more durable and higher in quality as compared to mobile or manufactured homes due to the construction of the house within a controlled environment. Constructing the houses within factories can reduce the building time and expenses. Like on-site construction though, modular home building time can vary depending on the weather.
Manufactured homes are built and joined entirely within a factory. These types of homes are almost completed houses where furniture, desks and electrical wiring are built into the house during the construction. The full construction of a home within a controlled factory ensures the protection of the house interior and its furniture from damages caused by the weather. Finished houses are transported to the site by a flatbed truck. A local code inspector will check the utilities of the house once it is connected to the local power grid. However, the inspectors will not review the structure of a manufactured house.
Manufactured are transportable homes able to offer the same high quality as modular homes. These homes are able to provide the assurance of the completion of the house without outside factors including rain, snow, or vandals to interrupt the construction. Manufactured homes are cost effective due to the inclusion of built-in features and appliances. This can save home buyers more money from purchasing items and spending money on installation fees.
Mobile homes are smaller versions of manufactured homes. They are built and completed within factories. Electrical wiring, furniture, and appliances are included in the construction of mobile homes. Mobile homes are usually transported to one site where it will stay permanently. These types of homes however can be transported with the use of a tractor or the right type of vehicle.
Mobile homes are also as cost effective as manufactured homes due to the built-in features. These homes also provide an incredible opportunity to save on costs. They can be situated within a mobile home park with a low monthly rental. A mobile home can also be used as a temporary building when anyone needs to work in a different location to save on motel or apartment rental expenses.
Remember to check the house builder’s qualifications before hiring them to build the house of your dreams.
