The advantages of modular construction in Toronto

Living in one of the GTA’s vibrant, highly-desirable urban neighbourhoods comes with numerous advantages. However, if you’re hoping to have some renovations done to your home, these densely-populated neighbourhoods with their impossibly narrow streets can come with logistical complications for lengthy construction projects. That’s why modular construction in Toronto is often the preferred solution over traditional construction.

“With segments of the construction being built in our shop and transported with our much smaller trailers, we can manage even the narrowest streets,” says Bole Cirovic, sales and marketing director for Modular Home Additions. “[Think of it like] a shelf from IKEA – laying flat in your car and assembled at home. The only difference is that we take the burden of assembly.”

Convenient Construction for Cramped Spaces

Modular construction is the fast, convenient way to renovate your home. Since all structural components are created offsite, the process of onsite installation can take just hours. From start to finish, the experts at Modular Home Additions can complete the enclosed shell for a second-floor addition in as few as three days, total!  When you consider the fact that traditional renovations can take weeks, the time saved by modular methods can be a considerable advantage for someone living in a tight, urban neighbourhood …although suburban homeowners can appreciate faster renovation times as well!

Another complication that comes with renovating in urban areas is noise. Fortunately, modular construction can limit the amount of disruptive noise that comes with traditional construction.

“[Since] the construction part is done off site (in our factory), we avoid mess on the site, littering of material, and excessive construction noise,” Cirovic says. “This makes the homeowner and their neighbours happier and less stressed.”

Custom Solutions

One of the biggest misconceptions people have about modular construction is that it’s “cookie cutter”; however, this couldn’t be further from the truth. The renovation solutions from Modular Home Additions are completely customizable.

“We prefabricate elements of the construction, [such as] floors, exterior walls, and roof system, so we can customize those for any type of design,” Cirovic explains. “[Your design] can be more modern with straight lines and flat roof, or more traditional with gables, dormers, etc. There are practically no limits.”
