Panelized Construction and Modular Homes

advice, guidance, support, results

Factory built panels and modular homes are giving conventional site-built homes a run for their money, in more ways than one. A study published by the Wood Truss Council of America showed savings of over $3,000 when a 2,600-square-foot home was built with trusses and wall panels versus conventional framing techniques.

Costs vary widely depending on the materials and the experience of the building crew, but building home modules or panels in the controlled setting of a factory often results in higher quality, more resource efficient construction. In many cases, the product is more energy efficient and termite resistant than stick-built homes, too. Check around for reasonable price quotes.

In Manufactured We Truss
Professional Remodeler , April 2006
While stick building remains the standard, remodelers are taking a cue from new home builders’ use of pre-assembled trusses when it comes to big jobs. Manufactured roof and floor trusses can ease and expedite the process of installing the roof and floor systems in an addition, and more importantly, provide time, labor and material savings in the process.
