Q. Could you tell me why there are no prices listed on your website?
A. There are several factors related to pricing that are not a part of the manufacturing process. Examples would be varying site conditions that require additional excavation; distance from the factory affects transportation costs; special finishing options you may request from your local builder; onsite finishing requires your local Simplex Builder to hire local labor which will factor into the final price. Your local Simplex builder will be happy to assist you in determining an accurate turn-key price for your new home.
Q. What are the advantages of modular versus typical site built construction (also known as stick-built construction)?
A. There are numerous advantages. You'll find details by visiting our "Why Choose Simplex Modular" by clicking here. Briefly however the advantages start with building your Simplex home in our climate controlled facilities. Your home is not exposed to rain, snow, or mildew during its construction. Simplex homes are built to the highest possible standards in order to meet the most stringent building codes. On-site independent third party inspection insures we meet, or more likely exceed, the building codes for your state. We not only use name brand (often Made In The USA) materials, we provide you with a list of materials - a list almost impossible to get from the average stick builder. Your home is built by highly experienced Simplex craftsmen - many of whom have been with us for decades. As a volume builder we can buy materials often for a fraction of the price a stick builder pays - and we pass along savings to you where ever possible. And finally, due to the production planning and use of modern technically advanced modular techniques, the odds of cost over-runs is dramatically reduced when you build a Simplex Modular Home.

Q. Is modular less expensive than site built construction?
A. The many advantages of modular construction can often lead to lower pricing than stick built homes. Our construction costs are known to us up-front. We buy in volume, lowering our materials costs. We do not have weather delays because we build in climate controlled production facilities. Modular has less material loss, damage, pilferage and vandalism - again all due to modern modular techniques and indoor construction. All of these factors help lower the cost of your Simplex Modular Home. Shorter construction time means you will lower your financing costs during the construction period.
Q. Can I make changes or design my house plan?
A. Yes you can make changes. Often home buyers, working with their Simplex builder, can easily make design changes to fit their needs. As a true custom builder, we at Simplex can almost always accommodate your requests.
Q. How long does it take to build my home?
A. A number of factors go into determining this answer, many out of our control such as obtaining building permits, building plans, material procurement and site preparation. Consult your Simplex builder to discuss a specific timeline.

Q. How long does a Simplex Home take to complete once it has been delivered?
A. Simplex will deliver your new home and your local builder will set your home usually in a day or two. Your local builder will then take full control of the project and will begin the finishing work. Factoring in the level of customization and additional features (ie. Decks, porches, garages, etc.) your builder can put together a time line for you.
Q. How do I get plans to build a new Simplex Home?
A. As a custom builder we can build from your plans or ours. To start the process, please review and download our Floor Plans page by clicking here. Once you determine what type of home you want and your options, we will then proceed to the plan design phase.
