Design/Build Top Reasons to Choose a Factory-Built Home By My Space And Place January 7, 2019378 views 0 There are so many reasons manufactured homes are great choices for today’s home buyers. Here are six great reasons you may want to explore those increasingly popular way of life. #1 Cost Savings and Price Factory construction offers many opportunities for economizing and increasing efficiency thereby passing the savings on to the home buyer. Another benefit can be found in the firm pricing. With factory-built homes everything is typically included in the price “up front”, so there are never any costly surprises down the road. #2 Time Saving Site-built homes typically take 4-6 months from ground breaking to build. Custom factory-built homes can be completed in 1 to 2 months, and as quickly as 1 to 2 weeks if purchased from a retailer’s lot. Factory-built homes arrive on site as a completed home. #3 Environmentally Conscious Building factory-built homes typically results in much less waste. Building materials leftover from one home can often be used in another. Also, factory built construction allows for a tighter, more energy-efficient structure. One reason is that a SRI factory-built home typically has more insulation than a site built home. #5 Quality-Controlled Construction Factory built homes are not subjected to the elements such as rain or snow during the construction process. All homes are built according to a detailed procedure manual with strict on-site quality control. At Winfield Homes, for instance, each house is built under the direction of a team of production engineers, supervisors, a quality auditor and an Intertek Quality Control Inspector. Factory-built homes are all dielectrically tested and the plumbing system is pressurized and tested at 100 psi for two hours before delivery or labeling.
