Modular FAQ’s

What is the Modular Construction Process?

Our modular homes are models of efficiency and quality assurance. The building process begins at the design phase. Our factories takes pride in their state of the art computer aided drafting programs and their teams of highly skilled workers and professional on-staff engineers. Once designed, the building process begins. This process is superior to what you’ve seen during the construction of houses in your neighborhood. The quality materials and care for detail, and the same building codes and standards are observed as set forth by the National Building Code and the Canadian Standards Association.

What is a Manufactured Home?

Simply put, a manufactured home is a highly engineered method of producing homes in an efficient and cost effective manner. Modular homes actually begin as components designed and engineered in a controlled environment sometimes hundreds of miles from their final destination. When the components are erected on your foundation and the final carpentry is completed, the finished result becomes a beautifully finished home for you and your family.

What is the difference between a Modular home and a site built home?

Our modular homes are engineered structures composed of two or more sections which are constructed within the manufacturing plant. The completed sections are then delivered to the customers’ home site. A site-built home is built completely on location. For the modular home, efficiency begins with modern manufacturing processes. Your home travels to work stations, with all building trades represented. Work is never delayed by weather, subcontractor, no-shows, or theft of materials. Quality engineering and modular construction techniques significantly increase the energy efficiency of your home. A quality control process provides 100% assurance that your home has been inspected for code compliance and workmanship.

What about Costs? Guaranteed Pricing?

When you add up all the labor, material and time savings inherent to our building process, you will find the price of a modular home is generally lower than site built homes. Our homes are 90% complete when leaving the plant minimizing on site work by trades people. Our homes will keep saving money year after year as the energy efficiency of your home keeps your heating bills low. When a contract has been signed with Brookewood Builders, we give you a final price. That’s just what it is, a final price.
