Pre Fab Construction… Breakthroughs

Building Your Home

Traditionally construction has shied from Pre Fab building. But those of you who follow Royal Homes already know that the possibilities of building design with Royal Homes is infinite – driven by your lot and your budget.

The building industry is beginning to take a closer look at the power of custom Pre Fab homes. There are good reasons to choose to Pre Fab:

1. The building time is shorter. The factory has many advantages over building on site. Building times are shorter because the factory isn’t held hostage to the whims of the weather. Two weeks of relentless rain does not slow the building process – because it is completely indoors. This spring is a great example – just when we thought spring was here, we were pelted with another layer of snow. That does not impact factory building.

2. The build is off site. One of the biggest challenges of on-site construction is to live in a construction site for multiple months – or years, in some cases. We all know how frustrating it is to work around construction. With Pre Fab, that time is drastically reduced. The building is built off site – and delivered in nearly completed units. There is no elongated disruption of services.

3. The build is greener. For companies concerned about their environmental impact, factory built is the way to go. Standardized processes make the build ultra efficient, eliminate needless waste. It just makes sense.

Today modular factories thrive on the challenge to build unique buildings, maximizing efficiencies, modern technology and design.

Keep watching – you’ll be seeing more and more custom Pre Fab homes.

  • FAQ

    Where can I get a price list or How come your website doesn’t show pricing?

    Prices vary geographically, depending on where you are building. With the amount of options available, price lists run into thousands of options. Prices change with the options you choose. The best way to get an idea on pricing would be to contact our Design Centre nearest to where you are building.

    Why should I buy from you over a conventional or "Stick-Builder"?

    The advantages of prefab include building in a climate controlled environment, using environmentally friendly products which reduces waste and a CSA monitored quality controlled program. There is less time start to finish, with less disruption to neighborhood. We also sell at a firm price.

    Do your homes include a foundation?

    Yes our homes include full foundation and basement.

    How long does it take to build a Royal Home?

    It takes less than two weeks to build a home in our factory, but the process from start to finish is very dependent on the timing of obtaining a building permit. For most of our clients the process from start to delivery is twelve to sixteen weeks with move in eight to twelve weeks thereafter.

    What size homes do you build?

    As a custom builder we can build any size home but generally the average size range is between 1300 and 3500 sq feet.

    Do you build garages?

    Yes. Garages are built on site after the home is delivered.

    Are the homes energy efficient?

    Building a prefab home in a factory assures the highest attention to sealing the building envelope and ensures that the cold stays out.

    Since your homes are so energy efficient and air tight, how do you get fresh air?

    All our homes have HRV heat recovery ventilator air exchanger to remove stale air, and introduce fresh air.

    Where can I put a prefab home?

    Anywhere in Ontario you like.

    Can I really customize my prefab home?

    Yes, we use state of the art custom design software, today no two homes are built alike.

    Do you finish the basement?

    Yes. We can customize your basement to the finishes you desire.

    Are Royal Homes built to code?

    All Royal Homes are individually designed to meet all provincial and municipal building codes for your specific lot location.

    Do you build stick-built or conventional homes as well?

    We are a custom home builder first and use prefabricated components wherever we can, because it is a better way to build. If you have a remote site or custom home design with large open spaces we would look at what makes most sense for that design and location. This could include prebuilt panels or partially site built specific rooms.

    What makes the building process environmentally friendly?

    Waste in the factory is separated and recycled, reducing the impact on landfills. This has less disruption in terms of noise and time at job site. Building prefab allows for higher energy efficient homes and reduced heating costs.

    How is your home delivered?

    Our home is delivered by way of custom designed hydraulic flatbed trailers and precisely craned onto the foundation.

    Can you make changes or custom design?

    Yes, clients are given preliminary plans to review and changes are welcome and easily accommodated.
