Modular Home Questions
Why should I consider a modular home?
At Northern Comfort Modular Homes, we see two main reasons why you would want to purchase one of our modular homes. First and foremost is our price. Building a modular home can typically save you 20-30% on the overall home price compared to a site-built home. The second advantage is the time it will take to build your new home. This build is very beneficial if your home project is time sensitive. With a site-built home, there is a higher possibility of running into delays due to weather, material shortage, and subcontractor disruptions. That’s why a modular is the right choice for you! We can have you in the home of your dreams before you know it!
What is included in the modular home?
This question is very important for you to ask and get answers to before your modular home is ordered. Asking this question will guarantee you know what you are getting with your new home and what you are not. Our Fairmont Homes come complete with installed flooring, installed appliances, and drapes hung. Our single wide units can be ordered with a vinyl-covered gypsum board so the walls are finished upon delivery. Our sectional homes ship with primed drywall and will need to be painted after installation. Our Maple Leaf Homes come complete with finished interior, drywall, kitchen cabinets, bathroom(s) complete, and hot water heater and furnace installed. Overall, Maple Leaf Homes are readily customizable to meet customer requests.
Can a modular be built on a basement?
Modular homes can be built on a basement depending on the house model. We have a great selection of model homes with basements, models without basements, as well as home models that can be built either with or without a basement.
If you do decide to go with a home model with a basement, you have the option to placing your furnace, hot water heater, and electrical panel in the basement.
Why are modular home cheaper to build then a site-built home?
The simplest answer we can give you is “economy of scale”. Modular homes are built in a factory where thousands of homes are built each year. This allows materials to be bought in bulk from our suppliers who give a discount from buying in bulk and in return we can give this discount to our customers.
What about the quality of modular homes?
All of the homes at Northern Comfort Modular Homes are built to meet and exceed any relevant Ontario building codes and CSA A277 standards. You can be assured that you and your family are getting a quality finished home. The materials that go into your home are protected from the elements by keeping them indoors while your new home is being built in our indoors.
What is the quality of a modular home kitchen?
Our Fairmont Home models offer all crafted solid wood cupboards and solid wood doors made from either maple, birch, or oak and offer a wide variety of finishes. Having this kind of quality in your kitchen will allow you and your family to enjoy a functional kitchen for many years to come.
Our Maple Leaf Homes models offer the same quality in your kitchen but allow you the choice of using your own existing appliances.
