Seven Subcontractors You Didn’t Know Are Involved in Modular Home Construction

Subcontractors for Modular Home with Insulated FoundationAside from the manufacturer, general contractor, and modular home dealer, there are subcontractors involved in the construction process. These persons are essential in erecting the modular home in Michigan.

Subcontractors in Modular Home Construction

Engineers and Architects

The general contractor will need to hire a local engineer or architect to complete the modular home construction process. At times you will be required to hire an environmental engineer to insure your home’s excavation does not interfere with wetlands or neighboring building lots. Contact your local permit office for more information of you requirements for an engineer.

Excavator

You will need an excavator to dig your modular homes foundation, clear the building site, back fill the foundation and complete both rough and final grading. In addition, your excavator can remove or add soil to your building site as required to build your home.

Foundation Company

Your modular home will require a foundation, either a crawl space or full basement or pilings for your home. The foundation company could install block walls, poured walls, a wooden foundation, precast wall system or insulated concrete forms for your modular homes foundation.

Carpenters

After your modular home is set on the foundation, you will need carpenters to finish out the exterior trim, build porches, decks, garages and other on site construction elements. You will also need a carpenter to complete minor work inside the modular home. This includes positioning stairs, installing doors, adjusting windows and doors and more. Your modular home dealer will help you understand the required carpentry work for your new home.

Plumbers

During the modular home construction process, the sections are delivered with the plumbing stubbed through the first floor of the home. Homes with two stories will need to have plumbing connections completed in access panels in the modular homes ceiling or floors. Plumbers will also install waste lines for sewage and the modular homes water heating system.

Electricians

General contractors of modular home construction will need electricians after modular homes are set on the foundation because 95% of the electrical work is completed. The last five percent or so of electrical work will include wiring the panel box, connecting the main power source to the panel box and any interconnection between modules.

HVAC Contractor

Most modular homes come standard with electric baseboard heating. Unfortunately, most people doing the modular home construction desire to have forced air heating and cooling systems or hot water radiant heating systems. If you are opting for a forced air system for your modular home, your HVAC contractor will install the heating and cooling system and also any required duct work.

My wife and I were blown away by the Legendary Homes website. Todd has done an outstanding job displaying so much information. We met with Todd and his wife at the model home and were very impressed with the home. They were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We look forward to working with them in the future.

Todd was a pleasure to meet with...We've been looking for quite some time to purchase a home, but this seller market has been tough, so we decided to look into modular homes. Todd was able to get us into a consultation quickly, answered all the questions we had for beginners, broke down the pricing and potential unanticipated costs, and presented us with a great deal of material to go home with and review. Eventhough we were able to get an offer accepted on a home within a couple days of meeting with Todd, we will definitely be considering a modular home with Legendary Homes for our future purchase. Thanks Todd!

I cannot say enough good things about Todd Rutledge & Legendary Homes. I was frustrated with the running around, people trying to take advantage of my lack of knowledge and the time that I had to spend researching what I needed to do in order to make my move a reality. Then I found Todd. He gave me the information & tools that I needed, he understood & worked with my budget & he showed great professionalism. He was timely & considerate. But most of all, he showed great integrity. I know that I can trust him to look out for my families best interest. He went above and beyond. Thank you Todd!!

I appreciated Todd taking the time to speak with me at the model house about the various options and things to consider when building a home. He was clear, direct, and easy to work with. Legendary Homes works with Redman Homes, which offers solid construction and just a few decisions to make in terms of finishes. For those who get analysis paralysis, this is a blessing! Definitely worth a look if a solid, simple home is the goal.
