A superior construction process that produces better quality & more efficient housing than traditional on-site construction.
A modular prefab home in Quebec, also known as a factory-built or systems-built home, is a house that has been built indoors in a manufacturing facility. When the home is complete, the modules (components of the home) are transported by truck to your lot. Once they arrive at the lot the modules are assembled by highly qualified tradesmen onto the existing foundation.
Because modular homes are built in a factory setting they can be built much faster than a traditional site-built home. Modular homes can be built in a few weeks whereas a traditional home could take between 12 months to over a year to build. In Canada, weather is a big cause for delay in the construction of a site-built home. Modular homes are built indoors and are not subject to delays cause by bad weather.
Modular prefab homes are more environmentally-friendly than site-built homes. In a factory there is less waste of materials because exact amounts are ordered. The materials are stored indoors in a controlled environment eliminating the risk of mold, mildew and rust.
A modular home is NOT:
A modular prefab home in Quebec is not the same as a manufactured home which is also called a mobile home. A manufactured home or mobile home does not have a permanent foundation and and can be moved from place to place.
