Prefab homes - breaking the myth of a house on the wheels
There was a time, people used to think prefab homes to be typically the house on the wheels. Though, there are still a lot of them who are unclear about what a house built with precast materials look like. These houses are exactly same as the conventional homes, the only difference being the technology applied to build the house as well as the raw masonry for precast homes.
Modular houses are making their presence felt in the Indian real estate sector as people are becoming more concerned about quick turnaround times and eco-friendly building solutions. This is possible because the masonry typically uses fly-ash, a waste generated at coal power plants. This way the environment is safe and construction cost is also lowered, as there is no labour involved to dig the soil and make clay bricks then bake them. For precast homes, the autoclaved aerated concrete blocks are manufactured within huge factories within controlled environment.
These factors offer prefab custom homes an edge over traditional houses. Apart from these plus points, the precast homes are sturdier and lighter, more resistant to natural calamities such as fire, earthquake, and storms. Old prefab homes were mobile homes on a truck or other vehicle. Now, that became a thing of the past. Modern prefab homes are as much like the conventionally built houses; they are installed on individually owned plots or lands.
There are real estate builders and construction companies that operate online to offer home construction services to individual home owners. These companies have qualified personnel starting from the civil engineers and draftsmen to architects n and interior designers. These people build and finish the house within almost 150 days (including painting), which is really great while compared to a traditional house that takes more time to take shape (few months to years) depending on the size and structure of the house.
Mobile homes in the past were built of material that offered less protection against the environment. But modern day prefab houses are insulated against extreme environmental conditions, are more comfortable and can be designed as per the need of the home owner. There is less chance of getting something that you have not desired, when you choose a reliable prefab home builder.
The most lucrative features of modular prefab custom houses are
Low pollution to environment due to no smoke generation during AAC blocks building, as well as during house construction (no mortar and water mixture involved so no waste).
Less time to build
It takes less time to build a house as the foundation and walls are pre-built at the factory and then shipped onsite. The installation takes lot less time than that of a conventional house. Sometimes the painting work is done onsite or at times it can be done at the factory only, saving the time at the home owners end.
Adhering to building norms
As the masonry is built at the factory they have building guide lines that they incorporate in every product. These products undergo strict quality testing before reaching the installation site.
They are cheap
These houses come at a cheaper price when the raw materials for them are built in bulk. Bulk manufacturing results in low cost building. In India there are renowned companies that have acquired projects from the Government to build low cost housing solution.Choosing a precast home is wise decision for people who thought traditional is the best. Prefab structures changed the way homes are built now a days. They offer flexibility of modification, convenience of time and most of all a house that stays longer.
