Buying a factory-made home has many advantages: there’s reduced construction time, you don’t need to source materials, and the robotic machinery provides excellent quality assessment. This ensures that your home follows all construction standards.
However, there are a few things that new homeowners forget to check in a factory-built house, and they need to be brought up with the contractor if missing. These elements make your living space more comfortable.
When working with a house building company (known as บริษัทสร้างบ้าน in Thai), make sure to put the safety of your home as the priority. It’s important to have proper door and window locks installed that are difficult to break. There should be anti-slip stairs to avoid injuries. If you’re moving into a two-storey home, have a railing installed in every section that lacks a wall.
Accessibility for the elderly and anyone who faces difficulty walking, climbing the stairs, etc. is essential too. If anyone in your home uses a wheelchair, your contractor can accommodate extra space in the hallways. You can install stairlifts later on.
Lighting is another crucial element of a safe and comfortable home. Areas such as stairs and the basement must have multiple light sockets and be well illuminated to avoid accidents. After all, lighting brings the “wow” factor to homes and complements the overall tone of each room. When interior work is going on, make sure to have sufficient light sources added to all rooms.
Factory homes are perfect for light and noise blocking. Noise-blocking elevates comfort level, increases the ability to focus on tasks, and ensures everyone gets a sound sleep. Check if your builder uses sealants that block incoming noise, especially windows. You can also add sound-absorbing materials and furnishings such as carpets to your home to make your space quieter.
Quality Interior Work
Pre-built homes have tons of beautiful exterior designs in different price ranges. So after you’ve picked your exterior plan, make interior work plans with your contractor. Your building company may offer contemporary, modern, classic, etc. designs for all rooms. Moreover, you can get pre-installed furnishings after picking an interior decoration plan.
Termites can quickly cause a terrible infestation that damages the wooden structures in your house. Luckily, most homes are built with termite proofing, and contractors offer termite prevention services. But just to be on the safe side, it’s essential to ask your builder whether or not your new home uses termite-preventing materials such as treated lumber.
