Modular homes are becoming more popular in NZ and all over the world, and for many great reasons. They’re a fantastic customisable option for everyone, from the average New Zealand family to RSE workers who need good housing. 

Of course, modular homes aren’t built in the same way that traditional homes are. While traditional houses are completely built on-site, modular home components are built in a factory setting and then transported to the final building site for assembly. 

Which Type Of Construction Is Better?

After learning how modular home construction differs from traditional home construction, you probably immediately asked, ‘Which type of construction is better?’ Naturally, you want the best for your new home, so you want to choose the method of construction that’s more efficient and more likely to produce fantastic results. 

One of the reasons why modular homes have become increasingly prevalent is that they have some advantages over traditional construction. However, it’s important to note that not all modular homes are the same, so these are generalised advantages that you can expect if you have your new home built by a reputable and experienced company. 

These advantages include:

Quality. Modular homes are created in a controlled setting. So, when you purchase a modular home in NZ, its components will be made in a controlled environment and then transported to your property to be assembled.

One major benefit of building in a factory setting is a higher level of quality control. It’s easier to ensure everything is done correctly when there are no outside distractions, such as the weather or limited daylight. The home builders working on your lovely new home can simply focus on making your home as high-quality as possible with no mistakes or oversights. 

When you choose a reputable modular home company, you can have peace of mind knowing that they’ll use high-quality materials and construction methods. They’ll do their absolute best to ensure your home meets their high standards.

Efficiency. Modular homes are often built much more quickly than traditional homes. As modular homes are built in components, rather than as one large structure, it’s easier for builders to work on multiple sections at the same time. 

Once your home’s components are completed, the transportation and assembly process is also relatively quick. On average, NZ modular homes can also be completed and assembled much faster than traditional homes.

It would be best to keep in mind that the speed of your home’s construction will entirely depend on your circumstances. Of course, larger modular homes will take longer to build than smaller ones. If you’re concerned about the timeline of your project, you should speak to your modular home company and ask them how long they think the project will take. 

Cost. The cost of your modular home will depend on many different factors, such as the size of the home, the materials used and so on. However, most people find that modular homes are typically more affordable than traditional homes. 

This is especially true if you choose to purchase your home from a company that offers affordable solutions without sacrificing quality.

Additionally, the higher quality of well-built modular homes means that they are often less expensive to maintain than traditional homes. They’re built to very high standards, so they’re less likely to experience problems over time. They’re a wonderful choice for individuals who enjoy living minimally, such as tiny house enthusiasts, because they aren’t difficult to maintain. 

The reduced cost, without lesser quality, is one reason why modular housing is a fantastic solution for New Zealand’s hard-working RSE workers. Here at Affordable Modular Homes, we’re proud to offer accommodation solutions for RSE workers at around two-thirds the price of other providers. 

Flexibility. One of the best advantages of prospective modular homeowners is that modular homes are a very versatile option. At Affordable Modular Homes, we have several amazing modular home plans that you can choose from, and you can customise them to suit your lifestyle and needs.

This makes modular housing an excellent option for so many different purposes. They can provide housing for RSE workers who are in New Zealand to fulfil crucial working roles, or they can be a wonderful new space for tiny home enthusiasts to live comfortably.

If you’re interested in a modular home of your own, we encourage you to look through the layouts available to you to see how you can change them to better suit your needs.
