Pentagon Builders Inc
5.0
Mike's Pentagon Builders saved me! I was way over my head with my modular home. I remembered I had used Pentagon Builders years ago in my parents’ home with excellent results and realized it was time to contact Pentagon Builders once again. Thankfully, Mike stepped in to get me to completion. He discussed all options and listened to my wants and needs. He worked miracles on my build. He and his crew were kind, neat, and professional. Due to Pentagon builders I now have the beautiful home I wanted. I will be using Pentagon Builders for all my new projects.

E and L Builders
5.0
E&L Builders handled our tear down and new build for stem to stern. OUr situtation was a little weird, but E&L took us on with enthusiam and focus. Our design was approved by Arlington Permits in May, the house was demolished un July, the modular home arrived in August and we occupied by Thanksgiving. What a whilrwind and all down very well. They handled all aspects of design documents, permit review, project coordination and supervision of final inspections. Clark from E&L was our main contact and was steadfast in keepingour project on track while his company was in their biggest year for projects. So we intejected our proejct into their 2005 work plan and they handled our project alongside everything else. They did a great job and were totally stand up. We would recommend E&L to anyone thinking of a modular building project and we would be happy to entertain a visit to our home to see the results of what we consider a quality project.

E and L Builders
1.0
Lots of mistakes during building process. Working with Clark to fix issues with Heating and Air system and gaps in hardwood floor. Not very responsive lately. Let me know if you are considering using E & L and need more info. I have lots of interesting and strange stories about our dealings with Clark. For example: After Clark finished the second floor several cracks appeared over about 4 months in our walls on the first floor. Clark said he wanted to wait until 12 months have passed before coming and fixing the cracks. Then after 12 months he told us the cracks were not the result of the new floor being added, he said they were the result of the first floor settling. I thought that was very strange, because they did add 15 tons of weight on top of our house. He insisted that the weight was so well distributed, that it didn't cause the cracks. I told him that I thought settling was when the ground (after being recently dug up for the foundation) settled and caused the house to move slightly and this could cause cracks. He said, "yes, your first floor is settling and its not the addition that is causing it". I told him I thought it was strange for a house built in 1964 to just now decide to settle. Again he insists that the new cracks were not the result of his work. Very strange. The heat pump Clark added freezes up and makes a lot of noise during damp and cold nights. He says there is nothing wrong with it. I have googled this and see it is a common issue when the defroster is defective. Another quick example is the hardwood floors have a 4 mm crack right down the seam of the two halves of the modular. Clark is saying that we need to use a humidifier and it will go away. It is clear that it is the result of the modular shifting (also probably the same cause of the cracks downstairs).

Bay State Leisure Homes, Inc
5.0
The job went extremely well. Bay State was prompt, efficient and gave great value. Chris Priore, the owner, is a stickler for quality. On the few occasions when his guys did something that he didn't think was well done, he made them rip it out and start over. (He didn't know I was looking). Chris is also a good planner and problem solver. He would regularly foresee upcoming staging issues and have a plan in place so that the work did not slow down. Also, there were problems on a number of occasions for which he came up with great work-arounds. One example: Our previous contractor had miscalculated the two planes of the porch roof so that they were not going to join correctly and would look terrrible. Chris thought on it and came up with a clever use of molding to hide the defect. The Bay State guys were on the job every day cranking out the work and finished on schedule. We were very pleased with the end result.

SHORT HILL DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION, LTD
5.0
Working with Chuck (owner) and Jose (foreman) at Short Hill was amazing. We were really lucky to find them. We originally started working with a builder from Middleburg who was controlling and unpleasant. He was qualified, but we didn't click, so we stopped the process. We instantly clicked with Chuck and are so glad we chose him. He was very patient with our constant changes of mind and indecision. He worked hard to cram as much value into our frugal budget as possible and never pressured us to spend more. He clearly enjoys his work, has years of building experience, and has knowledge of just about anything you could think of related to building. And he's just a very nice guy. He even came up with clever ideas to ease the stress on our elderly cats, and found a way for us to have access to the washer/dryer so we wouldn't have to use a laundromat for 6 weeks. Those were our 2 biggest concerns and he personally took it upon himself to ease our stress. He has a variety of very talented, trustworthy sub-contractors that he's worked with for years, which was comforting. Once we decided on a design, the job moved along surprisingly quickly - 6 weeks to basically restructure the bones of the house and rebuild the interior of the living end of the house. The site was kept as clean as possible, inside and out. The carpentry was excellent, all the detail work neat and sharp. Jose ran the show competently day to day, and Chuck was by regularly and did some of the work himself - especially the creative, unique features. We had absolutely no complaints - Chuck and Jose are even pickier than us, and take great pride in a job done right, and leave nothing undone. We are still stunned at how smoothly and pleasantly this project went. It was truly a pleasure working with Short Hill. And we hope to have them back for future projects.

What Do Modular Homes Cost?

Modular homes cost between 10 and 20 percent less than comparable stick-built homes. For a ranch home that might cost $250,000, you can get a new modular home for $211,638, saving you $38,362.

Just as the homes near your neighborhood have different amenities and prices, so too do modular homes. A pricing factor unique to modular homes is the travel distance between the home's construction factory and your homesite, though the freight charge is minimal. Consider these price factors for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom 1,780-square-foot ranch house:

  • Land: $15,000
  • Base home price: $93.000
  • Customizations: $32,000
  • Site Preparation: $6,500
  • Foundations: $22,250
  • Taxes, fees and freight: $10,906
  • Button-up work (connections, travel repairs, interior finishing): $17,000
  • On-site construction: $10,000
  • Utilities hookups: $3,000
  • Permits: $1,982

What are Modular Homes?

Let's get this out of the way immediately: a modular home is not a recreational vehicle.

A modular home does not sit on wheels. It goes nowhere. It is a less expensive way to build the home of your dreams than having a house built stick by stick on site.

Modular homes are factory-built homes crafted using the benefits of assembly line manufacturing and the craftsmanship of individually built homes. Rather than order one kitchen sink, a modular home builder orders 100 kitchen sinks, gaining deep discounts for volume. Storing all the building materials at a factory not only saves money, it protects everything, increases efficiency, and reduces labor costs. 

Modular homes are planned, designed, cut, laid out and assembled in a large indoor space. Weather does not delay work; materials are at ideal working temperatures year-round. 

Advantages of Modular Homes

Sure, a modular home is 10 to 20 percent less expensive than a stick-built home built on your property, but is it better or stronger? 

Since the materials are warehoused and can allow a manufacturer to turn out new homes weekly, more money can be spent on better quality materials while still gaining bulk discounts. Substandard raw materials can be weeded out, rather than worked into a home. 

Every home is inspected at every stage of construction in the factory, before third-party inspectors see the finished product. 

Modular homes often have to travel in pieces for hundreds of miles. They are built solidly to withstand the road trip, so they can easily withstand the occasional windy day once in place on your site.
