An Overview of Modular Homes: An Interview with Ed Cavatorta of Pro's Edge Quality Homes

By Ed Cavatorta

Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.

Ten years ago I started Pro's Edge Quality Homes with the focus to be on modular homes and to build a fast quality turnkey customized home.

What are some of the services your company provides?

We specialize in Teardown and Replacement Homes. The homeowner moves out of their existing house and we replace it with a full customized, energy efficient- maintenance free exterior modular home. Since we are turnkey builders we can do everything from the site work to installing decks, etc.

Please explain the concept of a modular home.

A modular home is built in a factory in a controlled environment; per the homeowners design and specifications. The house is then shipped to the job site as modular units. These modulars are then set on the foundation with a crane. Next we complete the necessary button up and tie in work for the house to completion.

What is the advantage of buying a modular home?

There are a lot of advantages involved with buying a modular home; better pricing, better control for the building process (environmentally and cost) since it is built in a factory, faster, simpler and a less complicated process than to stick build plus we do all of the design work for no additional cost.

How do you suggest clients prepare for this process?

They should do some general research for the style of home that they desire including the features they would want. Also they may want to speak with a bank about what they can qualify for. They can speak to me anytime about the whole building process and pricing etc.

What are some common issues customers face when it comes to pursuing a modular home?

Often homeowners have a hard time to keep themselves on their budget because they typically keep on adding features and upgrades etc. Since we are full custom there are many features and options available.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you?

Either by email or telephone.
