9 Reasons To Go Modular

9 Reasons To Go Modular

With today’s technology, modular homes can be built in any style, and completion time for a home can be reduced by up to 50 percent.

There are misconceptions that modular homes mean cheap, low quality, have no design flair, and are basically glorified trailers. But many builders today are redefining what a modular home looks like, and building modular can help builders become greener. Analysts project that 2015 will become the “breakout year for modular homes,” as U.S. News reported.

Here’s a list of nine other ways going modular can benefit the builder:
1. Any Architectural Style Is Possible.
