 key things to know about prefab homesHere at 1st Choice Home Centers, we specialize in prefab homes. Although these homes have been steadily gaining popularity in recent years, there are still large numbers of people who don’t know much about them or how they differ from the traditional or stick-built kind. Our team wants to help you explore all your options, so you can make an informed decision about what’s best for your needs. In this article, we at 1st Choice Home Centers will be going cover some key things to know about prefab homes.

  • They’re Faster to Build. One thing to know about prefab homes is that they take less time to build than their traditional counterparts. This is because a large percentage of the work has already been taken care of by the time the materials arrive at the build site–everything is cut, measured, and ready to go. This makes prefab homes an attractive option for those who want to start enjoying their new residences sooner.
  • They’re Built to Last. Another thing that you might not know about prefab homes is that they are highly durable. Each module is designed to stand on its own for maximum flexibility in design and combination, so putting many of these modules next to each other creates a sturdy structure that can hold up as well as or better than traditionally built homes in extreme weather conditions.
  • You Can Remodel Them. One concern about prefab homes we’ve heard here at 1st Choice Home Centers is that they will be more difficult to remodel than traditional builds, or even that remodeling would be impossible. Allow us to assure you this is not the case, and there is nothing about a prefab home that would prevent you from remodeling it later–just let your contractor know that it’s prefab early in the process so that they can properly account for any differences.
