Modular Home Advantages
With off-site construction, your home is built in a climate-controlled environment that is safe from weather, theft, and vandalism. Rochester Homes & Heckaman Homes also utilize modern technology to build your home stronger than traditional site built construction. This building process also enables us to complete your project in just over half the time of on-site construction. We invite you to visit Rochester Homes production facility to see for yourself how incredible this building process is.
Building off-site constructed homes allows for substantial cost savings in almost every area of the building and financing process. Here’s how:
• Bulk Material Purchases: Rochester Homes purchases lumber and brand name materials in large quantities, resulting in lower cost.
• Controlled Environment: A clean, indoor plant, avoids inclement weather, which results in greater labor efficiencies, which lowers costs.
• Less Material Waste: Recycling plus warehousing our materials in a secure environment, with protection from weather and job site theft, lowers costs.
• Superior Technology: Precision equipment and efficient material handling result in more accurate construction with fewer mistakes and lower costs.
• Quality Control: Our homes are built to the appropriate building code required by each state, & are inspected by both Rochester Homes and independent third party inspection agencies. This results in fewer construction errors and lower costs.
• Construction Time Period: Since our homes are delivered to the job site about 75% complete, total construction time is greatly reduced, incurring less interest and quicker occupancy.
• House Plans: Rochester Homes provides the necessary plans for building permits and complete construction without requiring an architect, thus lowering costs.
• Financing Cost: Quicker construction time with fewer interest charges results in less costs.
Code Compliance and Quality Control
All of our system built homes comply with the International Residential Code (I.R.C.), as well as the National Electrical Code. These are the same State and Local building codes that your local site builders have to comply with.
Every home we build is inspected by an independent third party inspection agency before it leaves the factory to ensure that they conform to each state’s building codes. Each home undergoes rigid quality control inspections and testing from framing to final finishing details including electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems.
