Unlike site built homes, every transportable home is built on a level and solid working platform. This means that the starting point for every new house is perfectly level and the following wall construction perfectly square.
Transportable homes are faster to build than site built homes. Building transportable homes indoors under factory conditions ensures safe and comfortable working conditions all year round no matter what the weather. This means no time delays in construction and for the customer, a more accurate estimate of the completion date. This is very handy when arrangements need to be made for vacating your current premises before moving into your new home. Due to the more standardised timeframe, there are no cost blow-outs due to time delays. The original quote for the job will reflect the final cost.
Being built in a factory-controlled environment, transportable homes are under constant supervision and are monitored under a strict quality control process which leads to a superior build quality when compared with other building systems.
Because transportable homes are built to be transported, they are specifically engineered to be stronger to cope with the stresses and strains of movement during transport. The floor structure is built as a steel chassis and the walls are constructed with greater structural integrity and more bracing than a traditionally built home. At the end of the day a transportable home is a more solid construction and will stand the test of time better than a site built home.
As with all new homes, transportable homes are built to comply with the 5-Star code for energy consumption. This provides the customer with an energy efficient home resulting in lower running costs for heating and cooling appliances, and a superior comfort level within.
With climate change and carbon emissions being in the political spotlight these days, attention is turning to the building industry with a focus on the 'embodied energy' of building products. The 'embodied energy' of a building product is a calculation of the product's energy consumption required for manufacture and installation, and therefore the resultant carbon emission caused. As transportable homes are built using durable, light-weight materials, the overall 'embodied energy' is much lower than a traditional site built home and as a result, they are more environmentally friendly.
