Why Prefabricated Homes are on the Rise

As more and more home builders choose prefabricated homes, the value and benefit far outweigh traditional building methods. From cost-effective building to pretreated materials, prefab homes are sweeping the housing industry. There are many reasons why homeowners are choosing the security of prefab, and find a few consistent factors quite appealing as they plan their next build.

Time is money. It is undebatable that traditional construction has the reputation of often costing homeowners more than their initial budget. From weather setbacks, to inadequate staffing there are so many hurdles that can show up on a build. With prefab homes, common setbacks like material shortages aren’t an issue as the material is often prepped and available before the build begins. Because of this, construction costs are minimal compared to variable environment that depends on active labor and optimal weather conditions. Not only are prefab homes cost-effective to build, but material prep is also both efficient and waste-conscious. 


Build a home with unique appeal. As the demand for modern prefab homes continues to rise, so does the technology behind manufacturing them. What used to be seen as a cookie-cutter house building method, has now become an industry of innovative housing options. Prefab manufacturing has taken off and allows homeowners the ability to design unique features in a controlled factory environment. From pretreating materials for fire to cutting and preparing materials with precision, the benefits to preparing materials in-house versus on a job site are many.


Choosing the most sustainable home

No matter what environment or function you wish to highlight for your home, most homeowners look for sustainable, easy to replace materials. With the creation of precut materials, weather repairs or household damages are easier to replace and swap out due to readily available parts on the market. As more consumers request prefab home builds, both the quality and variety of materials available are improving. Most materials can be stained, treated and fireproofed in the manufacturing process which makes the home overall more resistant. For rain heavy climates, waterproofing is a must and essential to the duration of all long-term sustainable homes.

Whether your priority is a speedy build or quality investment, prefabricated homes are the future of innovative housing. From cost efficiency to precision in manufacturing, prefab homes offer multiple advantages over onsite custom builds.
