Modular Construction vs. Traditional Construction

Ask Your Construction Company to Recommend You the Best Building Alternative to Match Your Lifestyle and Budget

If you are wondering whether to choose conventional traditional house building methods or to experiment with modular construction, this post will definitely help you make up your mind. A few of the specialists working for our construction company have outlined the main advantages and disadvantages of both options.

Modular construction
This is a process that uses prefabricated elements that are assembled in a factory and are transported to the construction site entirely or mostly completed (in fact, 95% of the building components arrive complete). Modular buildings and room additions can be built faster than traditional homes because the building process does not depend on the weather conditions.

Traditional Construction
This is a process whose primary structural elements are constructed entirely or largely on-site. Digging and building the foundations of such buildings may take much longer but that makes them more resistant to the elements later. They require roofing, siding, and insulation apart from general construction but keep in mind that this will save you money from energy and heating bills in the long run.

The summary. Modular buildings are more suitable for business owners who do not like to waste much time and want to start returning their building investment as soon as possible. Traditional construction can resist severe weather conditions and requires less maintenance in the long run.
