Our partnering manufacturers have over 50 years of systems building experience, and that knowledge is built into every Nelson Homes house we build. Modular housing offers many advantages over conventional stick-built construction methods.
Climate controlled environment – Building and storing material inside a controlled environment produces a better quality product, because your home is not exposed to the harmful effects of the weather.
Consistent Quality – The assembly line building process creates superior quality, through the steady employment of skilled craftsmen who have been trained extensively. Nelson Homes employees have a sense of pride and ownership in the homes they build. The majority of stick builders use subcontractors and often the lowest bidder.
Quality Control Inspections – Daily plant inspections by our manufacturers in addition to third party inspectors ensure consistent quality and code compliance that meet or exceed state standards.
Superior Strength – Modular homes are the strongest of all frame homes built, because they are built with up to 30% more framing and fastening materials to withstand the stress of transportation and erection.
Cost Savings – Building time is reduced by building the home and doing the site preparation at the same time. This reduction in time lowers your interest payments on a construction loan. In addition, most stick builder pricing reflects the historical costs of job site theft, vandalism and damaged materials. Modular homes arrive at the job site 90% complete which reduces those costs. We also pass more savings on to you because we buy materials by the truckload, while most builders buy from the local lumberyard. Computer aided drafting reduces material waste and we also recycle much of our scrap material.
Precision Engineering – Computer aided drafting (CAD) allows precision customization and flexibility in floor plan designs. We offer a wide variety of ranch, cape and two-story floor plans and elevations.
Energy Efficiency – Our manufactures are an ENERGY STAR® partner and are committed to using energy efficient building methods and materials.
Outstanding Customer Service – Every Nelson Homes house comes with a full one year limited warranty. Nelson Homes has a dedicated service department that works with our manufacturers and their staff to provide professional service. In addition, many of the brand name components, such as appliances, shingles and siding used in your home, are covered by separate manufacturer warranties.
