Why Factory Built?
Why Factory Built?
One of North Americas largest and most modern facilities! 100% Canadian Built!
The number of differences between traditional site-built homes and factory-built homes have shrunk in recent years, with factory-built housing quickly meeting and exceeding the standards long viewed to be the prerogative of site builders. While factory-built structures are constructed to the same national and provincial standards as site-built homes, the exceptional quality of factory built homes becomes strikingly apparent once you examine the home-building process. With materials and construction performed within climate-controlled facilities, by dedicated trained professionals, and under the inspection of third party agencies, our homes are not plagued by the challenges of rotating seasonal staff or inclement weather. Likewise, daily ongoing inspection and training ensures that challenges are met early and often, reducing the possibility of un-diagnosed concerns. By using automation within the factory floor, from the cuts of lumber to the raising of walls, we can ensure stability and consistency across all jobs performed. This consistency and environmental focus adds to the exceptional energy efficiency of the final home, ensuring the home saves you money.

Efficient & Cost Effective
A standard window is a double-glazed, Low E Argon filled window, which has excellent insulation values. We also offer a triple pane Low E Argon window in some of our products as an option. The energy performance of these windows is significantly better than our standard window, and in most cases, the windows can reduce energy consumption for an entire house by nearly 30%.
With energy costs constantly on the rise, we always aim to provide homes as energy efficient as possible. The design of the interior of the exterior wall is built in such a way that the drywall can be glued and screwed the to the belt rails while still providing a continuous vapour barrier. All electrical boxes are wrapped with a vapour barrier, then all wires and fasteners are sealed with caulking. All penetrations in the walls and ceilings are sealed through the vapour barrier with caulking. All of these features create a tight structure and a more energy efficient building.
An important advantage to building a home or commercial structure in a factory is how it benefits the environment. By building indoors, materials can maximized: translating into less waste, therefore less materials are thrown away. This building process allows for efficient collection of waste material for recycling.
