Modern technologies allow for the production of modular homes capable of withstanding various climate conditions while remaining comfortable for residents.

Many customers still are still doubting whether such a structure is suitable for full-time use throughout the year. The answer is quite simple: yes. Modern technologies allow for the production of modular homes capable of withstanding various climate conditions while remaining comfortable for residents.

Unitbud, a company that specializes in modular construction, offers the option to order such modular buildings. On their website, you can familiarize yourself with available projects, the costs, and production timelines. However, before making a decision, it is worth studying the features of modular construction technologies in more detail to facilitate the subsequent home selection process.

What is modular construction?

The main characteristic of modular homes is their construction process. The building process includes the following stages:

  1. First, the customer selects a suitable home option from ready-made modular designs or orders a custom project.
  2. Next, the modules are manufactured. The finished home can consist of one or several of these elements.
  3. Once production is complete, the modules are delivered to the site and installed on a lightweight foundation.
  4. Since all internal utilities are designed and installed during the module production process in the workshop, only the external connections need to be made on-site.

The modular structure can be put into operation almost immediately after installation, significantly saving the customer's time. Additionally, there is no need to prepare the site (e.g., install a massive foundation) or dispose of construction waste. Thanks to these factors, prefabricated buildings can be considered the most cost-effective option.

Modular homes for year-round living: Is it possible?

Due to their lightweight nature, doubts may arise regarding the suitability of modular structures for year-round living. However, experts clarify that the specific design of these homes makes them suitable for use in both high and low temperatures. They are also resistant to wind and frequent precipitation. Among other advantages, the following are highlighted:

  • The possibility of additional insulation, in addition to the present insulation in the structure.
  • Excellent thermal and sound insulation performance.
  • High vapor permeability, providing comfortable living conditions.
  • Environmental friendliness, ensuring a safe living environment.
  • Fire safety.

All these advantages confirm that modular homes are not only suitable for year-round living but are also highly comfortable. However, examining their technical features in more detail to dispel doubts regarding this claim is worth it.

Advantages of the materials used

High-quality and tested materials are used in the production of modular modules. Not only that these materials passed all necessary tests but they also proved their quality through years of experience. The frame is made of durable first-grade fire-retardant boards. This material can withstand mechanical stress, temperature variations, and high humidity without losing its properties throughout its service life, and not requiring repairs or replacements.

Reinforced screws and reliable hardware are used to fasten the elements together. This is especially important to ensure that the structure does not deform during strong wind gusts and to maintain its shape during transportation and installation.

Modern insulation technologies

When choosing a prefabricated home for year-round living, the insulation of the modular building plays a crucial role. To achieve this, high-quality materials, that demonstrate their effectiveness over many years, are used.

The panels used for walls and roofs are insulated with basalt and mineral wool. Additionally, there is a separate vapor barrier layer and a superdiffusion membrane. When placing an order, the customer can choose the optimal level of insulation.

It is important to note that the technology used ensures a comfortable microclimate inside the home throughout the year. During winter, the interior remains warm, while in summer, heat from outside does not penetrate the walls.

In conclusion, modular structures are an optimal solution for those who want to build a home for permanent living within a short timeframe and without excessive costs. This way, you can obtain a home that is not inferior in quality to traditionally constructed buildings. You can clarify all the specifics of future construction before placing an order. Unitbud offers the opportunity to order turnkey modular homes for year-round living with a guaranteed high quality and durability.
