There are many obstacles to be considered as a home builder in the State of Alaska. Alaska has a very short build season due to its harsh weather through the winter months. For this reason, it is important to make the most of the prime building season. Naturally, this reality makes many Alaskan homeowners consider either prefab or modular construction. Even though a modular home may be the simplest option, there are many advantages of building a modern prefab home.
Pacific Homes’ dedicated team has worked with clients, builders, and architects since the 1980’s. With the shorter build season in Alaska, demand for builders is very high. Our Pacific SmartWall® System offers many benefits for anyone looking to build a custom design within this short time frame. We have also been building homes in Alaska for many years and have become very familiar with its unique challenges.
Benefits of Prefab Homes in Alaska
Here are some of the many benefits to using Pacific Homes as the home builder for you next Alaskan house:
1. Cost Savings
Guaranteed package prices minimizes costly overruns and allow for shorter build times. This means fewer labor requirements and reduced material waste, all saving you money.
2. Outstanding Quality Control
All major components of Pacific Homes are built in a climate controlled environment with high quality, premium grade lumber. This reduces warping, splitting, shrinking, drywall cracks, nail popping, and mold-related issues in your finished home. Advanced computerized equipment used throughout construction identify potential design flaws prior to assembly.
3. Superior Energy Efficiency
Our exclusive Pacific SmartWall® System is up to 128% more energy efficient than a standard 2×6 wall. It provides a more effective R-value and greater noise reduction to get you through harsh Alaskan winters.
4. Fast and Stress-Free
Panelized kit homes, the form of prefab construction that Pacific Homes specializes in, is mostly constructed off site. This means that the number of days building on site, dealing with weather complications or other issues, are greatly reduced. The result is faster, more secure move-in dates and less stress throughout the process.
5. Contractor Network
We have a dedicated contractor network in Alaska that we will connect you with. These contractors are familiar with assembling our homes, and will complete the job on time and on budget.
6. Eco-Friendly and Built Green
We take environmental sustainability seriously, providing practical, affordable custom solutions that make Pacific Homes among the ‘greenest’ available.
7. We Can Build Anything
