Building a Modular home has clear advantages.

Modular vs. Manufactured Homes

The perception of Modular Construction can commonly be confused with that of Manufactured Construction.

The truth of the matter is there are some distinctions in these two methods of home construction. Although both Modular and Manufactured are built in controlled environments, there are quite significant differences. For example, one aspect is the freedom of location. Manufactured Homes can be limited to certain locations, such as trailer parks and other manufactured living communities.

With a Modular Home, it can be placed on almost any plot of land, in any neighbourhood, and can pass regional bylaws and building codes.

Another difference between Modular and Manufactured is permanence. Manufactured Homes are designed to be mobile. Although Modular Homes are designed for transport, many homes are placed onto permanent foundations.

A MODSOLID home accommodates to this desire and we offer our customers the opportunity to complete their home with a fully developed modular basement.
