What are the benefits of our Modular Homes?
- Construction time:
Modular Homes have a much faster building time than traditionally constructed homes. Hunter Valley Homes are usually complete within 20 weeks of start, which is approximately 1/3 of the time required for a standard new home build. Weather, other on site delays and noise restrictions are also avoided through the process of a factory build as much of the work has been completed before installation on site.
- Quality control and structural integrity:
The controlled factory environment that our Modular Homes are built in means that our skilled team are able to utilise quality control and manufacturing tools which are unavailable to on site builders. Both modular and traditionally built homes are required to meet local regulatory standards however due to the requirement of transportation of modular homes, Hunter Valley Homes are constructed with timber frames and 100% bracing to suit high winds for enhanced strength and durability.
- Sustainable building practices:
A Hunter Valley Homes we value our environment, and are committed to implementing sustainable building practices through out our business. The Modular Home building process helps us achieve this with most of the work being done off-site meaning that there is far less waste, saving your build both time and money.
- Cost effectiveness:
Modular Homes are substantially cheaper than a traditionally constructed new home due to their much shorter build times and the stable factory build conditions. Not only does this save you money, but it means that you can be in your new home in a fraction of the time it would have taken a standard build to be completed.
- Bushfire Building
Modular homes are a cost effective way to build in a bushfire environment. Hunter Valley Homes are highly experienced in bushfire rated building and have previously built homes from BAL 12.5, BAL 19, BAL 29, BAL 40 and Flame Zone in conjunction with bushfire consultants. These levels are determined by location, type of vegetation, distance from home to vegetation and the slope of the property.
