Prefabricated parts are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly than traditional houses.
First, less waste is generated during the construction of prefabricated parts. There are many different people in the factory who transport materials to the site and produce excess wood, tiles and garbage, which is more efficient. Prefabrication companies are also more likely to reuse or recycle waste in factories.
Compared with traditional houses, the joints of factory-built houses and parts may also be tighter, which makes heating and air conditioning more efficient. Compared with many professional house builders, prefabricated parts companies prefer environmentally friendly packaging. Most prefabricated builders provide energy-saving equipment, while some builders include sustainable materials (eg bamboo flooring) and additional facilities such as solar panels and rainwater collection systems.
In an era of increasing climate challenges, prefabricated buildings gain another advantage because of their resilience. Because prefabricated houses must be transported by truck to withstand them, they are generally structurally stronger than sticky houses, which is a major advantage in areas prone to earthquakes, hurricanes, or strong winds.
