What is Precast Concrete and Why Do Modular Homes Need It?

Designing the Insulated Precast Foundation for Modular Homes, Precast ConcretePrecast concrete is a construction product that is produced by casting concrete in a reusable mould. It is cured in a controlled environment, transported to site and lifted into place. Precast concrete is a highly versatile product available in vast range of different sizes, functions and finishes.

Precast concrete construction has many advantages and is best incorporated into a project like building modular homes. It is also an efficient way to gain a high quality modular home especially when you hire an experienced contractor.

Precast concrete products are manufactured in specially-equipped factories, which are established in permanent locations.

Finished products are transported to site, ready for installation. Products are then craned into place. Final products can range from sophisticated polished reconstructed granite wall facades to functional storm water drainage pits.

Reason to Use Precast Concrete for Modular Homes

Design-Build Efficiency

Precast concrete provides an efficient delivery model for your modular home; allowing building construction to proceed while the design is developed.

Environmentally Friendly

An inherent characteristic of precast concrete is its natural resistance to mold, which greatly reduce health concerns from VOCs. With its environmentally friendly advantages, precast concrete satisfies a growing demand for sustainable design and construction. Additionally, precast concrete structures are completely recyclable making their impact on the environment minimal.

Energy Efficiency

The thermal mass inherent to precast concrete lends itself to energy efficiency and reduces the heating and cooling peaks and loads; often necessitating less costly mechanical systems. The national Energy Policy Act of 1992 mandates improved energy performance in commercial buildings, and recognizes the effect thermal mass contributes to reducing heating and cooling loads.


The exterior of a precast concrete structure can be left unpainted without damage from the elements. If painting is desired, repainting is needed only every five to ten years. Precast concrete interiors are less subject to damage, and easier to wash.
