Consider the analysis below to see why our upscale factory-built homes are the right choice for your Windward Village senior retirement in Florida.
NEW Factory Built Home VS. Site Built Home
|New Factory Built Home||Site Built Home|
|Building Materials are Protected From The Elements: Factory-built homes are built off-site in a controlled manufacturing environment. Each home is built in sections and then transported to Windward Village in Spring Hill FL where they are installed and completed by professional installers. Approximately 80% – 90% of factory-built construction takes place indoors where materials are protected from the elements.||Building materials are exposed to often wet and humid Florida weather.|
|Stronger More Durable Structure: In a manufacturing facility, craftsmen have access to tools, jigs, tables and material handling equipment. These tools and equipment allow the manufacturer to fabricate high quality, stronger, more durable structures.||A number of tools and equipment are not viable in the field on a construction site. Some site-built homes are only built to minimum local construction specifications.|
|Factory-Built Promotes “Green Construction”: Factory-built manufacturers identify practices and materials that reduce a home’s burden on the often delicate Florida environment. These practices also typically result in homes that are more comfortable, healthier and more economical to own, allowing you to enjoy more of your active retirement lifestyle.||Not all site built homes promote GREEN construction.|
|Tighter More Energy Efficient Structure: Through a combination of higher insulation requirements, low “E” windows, a tight building envelope, and high efficiency heating and cooling systems, factory-built-homes can be 20% to 30% more energy efficient than standard homes. Many factory-built homes come standard with Energy Star features to further reduce energy usage and save you money over the life of your home.||In some cases, site-built homes only install 2” x 4” sidewalls, and include only R-11 insulation.|
|Resource Efficiency: Creating resource efficient designs and using resource efficient materials can maximize function while optimizing the use of natural resources. Resource efficiency is also about reducing job-site waste. By creating an effective construction waste management plan and taking advantage of available recycling facilities and markets for recyclable materials, waste can be reduced by at least two-thirds, creating potential cost savings and reducing the burden on landfill space. Factory-built construction processes carefully manage resource usage and maximize recycling.||Most site-built homes do not utilize resource efficiency.|
|Construction Speed: Most home sections are complete within 60 days of the order date. You can rest easy knowing you have a specified timeline for completion and delivery of your new home.||In many cases, the completion date often depends upon volatile Florida weather, availability of materials and subcontractor schedules.|
|Low Maintenance: Enjoy carefree exteriors that feature vinyl siding; *Another industry standard that enhances the user friendly design of factory-built housing.||Many surfaces require paint or stain.|
|Consistent, Well-Trained Workforce: Manufactured home builders use factory assembly to improve the construction process by incorporating factory-assembled components such as pre-hung doors, windows, cabinet modules and roof trusses. Each workstation is equipped with the tools and equipment needed to complete the specific task and increase the efficiency and quality of the workforce.||High labor costs and inconsistent Florida weather lead to construction inefficiencies.|
|Cost Reduction Practices: Buying building materials, interior features, and appliances in large quantities reduces the overall home cost. Better quality control increases efficiency and leads to reduced labor costs. Climate control reduces construction cost. Advanced engineering techniques and construction methods leads to reduced overall costs.||Custom site-built homes often lead to higher material and labor costs.|
|Quality Control: In addition to our own quality audits, third-party federal or state inspectors inspect modules at various points throughout the construction process and certify that each home exceeds building codes. Every home is inspected over 35 times throughout the construction process to meet the appropriate national, state or local building codes. *The manufactured housing industry has been regulated by the Federal HUD Code (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) since 1976!||Building codes vary by city and state.|
|Competitive Mass Marketing and Distribution Sales Centers: Higher energy prices, as well as the increased awareness of home innovations, has led many consumers to take advantage of the savings and affordability of living in quality factory-built homes, such as those found at Windward Village senior retirement community in Spring Hill FL. Compare the cost per square foot and how many amenities you can afford with factory-built homes in a safe, conveniently located residential community for 55+ adults.||Site-built homes have built-in high profit. Cost per square foot is much higher for a site-built home than with a factory-built home.|
