What is a Prefab Home?

Nwe home by Palm Harbor HomesIf you are in the market for a high value, high quality home, then you should definitely consider a prefab home.

A “prefab” home is simply a type of home that is already built in a separate location. The home is then assembled from large pieces on the land that is chosen by the buyer. Many people like the convenience of a prefab home, as they are quickly built in a factory rather than built in the open. This means construction doesn’t have to wait for good weather or slow down due to fluctuating temperatures that can impact construction equipment. Palm Harbor Homes builds all our houses in climate-controlled facilities that can quickly and efficiently build your dream home.

Why Prefab Is Better

There are many advantages to buying a prefab house. Aside from the benefit of fast and efficient construction, you can also count on your prefab house being high quality for an affordable price when compared to a traditional brick and mortar home. Prefab homes are also unique in that you can choose from a wide variety of colors, styles, and custom touches that make your home your own.

 Safety of Prefab Homes

Many home buyers have the misconception that prefab homes aren’t as safe or sturdy as a traditional home. Palm Harbor is known for our precision building technique of SmartPlus® construction. During our construction process, our professionals go through over 200 quality checks to ensure that every piece of your home is put together securely. Palm Harbor Homes even offers hurricane-proof homes that are known to withstand even the harshest winds.

Prefab Homes and Energy Efficient

Because prefab homes are built with modern construction techniques, they are much more likely to be energy-efficient when compared to older traditional homes. Palm Harbor offers EnerGmiser® Energy Management System, which is available on each home we sell. This means money save up to 30% each and every month on your utility bill.
