Modular homes are quickly gaining popularity in the United States. According to the United States Census Bureau, 8,800 premanufactured dwellings were delivered in May 2018 alone. Michigan builders can take advantage of this trend to increase their net income without a large upfront investment. Here are some reasons why you should consider adding manufactured home installation to your list of services.
- Do more jobs in less time. Installing manufactured units drastically decreases your delivery times. The timeline for building modular homes varies by the size and complexity of the unit. However, it always takes less time to piece together prefabricated pieces than it does to create an entire building from scratch. Your profit margins may be smaller on premanufactured installations. However, the increase in speed will allow you to get through more jobs.
- Give clients exactly what they want with less effort. It's not uncommon for clients to change their minds on design elements and placement in the middle of the building process. Modular homes make it easy to accommodate last-minute changes. Working with an architect, builders can rearrange prefabricated pieces to fit the client's vision.
- Work in almost any weather. Unlike traditional construction, modular installations are less reliant on good weather conditions. Most of the work can be done from inside the home, which means Michigan builders can still meet winter deadlines. This is a great way to extend your busy season or take advantage of competitor slowdowns to attract laid-off skilled workers to your firm.
Whether you need a few quick jobs to fill in empty spots on your schedule or you're looking for a new way to quickly expand your business, modular construction services are an ideal addition to your list of services.
