Modular Barns and Garages: Profit Advantages for Building Contractors

Satisfy the customer, save time and increase profit. What if you could offer a garage, make extra profit and not use your time and resources?

Modular barns, garages and modular storage sheds come with their definite set of advantages both for the barn owners and the building contractors. As long as the farm in question has adequate site access, the modular barns can be assembled and installed in no more than two to three days. So, if time is a factor, a modular barn would be the most advantageous and cost-effective solution for a barn owner. The building contractors can also offer modular sheds at easier prices as compared to custom or full monitor barns. The modular sections are built in bulk and therefore cost much less in materials and construction. These allow the contractors to offer easy prices to customers.

Another benefit with these modular structures is that they can be used for any number of purposes- for example, raising livestock, storage, or as a garage, or even for residential purposes. This allows the contractors to create a larger base of customers and expand the range of services offered.

For example, if a contractor is building a house for a client and the latter also wants to build a barn or a garage, the contractor can complete the entire project on his own and would not need to hire a separate service of a subcontractor to finish the job. There is also very little labor costs involved in the installation of the barns. In case of built-on-site or stick built barns, or even for custom or monitor barns, it may take weeks or more to build the structure. On the other hand, installation of a modular shed calls for minimum labor requirements. The contractor can order a modular barn directly from a dealer or a manufacturer of this kind of barn models and a small crew will be able to perform the assembly job in a very short time.

However, the contractor will need to take into account the site preparation costs. Building or the assembly of a barn may often involve site preparation. For example, the rocky or uneven grounds will need to be adequately leveled before the installation. If one or more trees come in the way of the installation, they will need to be removed, too. These activities will increase the overall expense of the project, and the time required for the completion of the same. However, since this applies both to modular as well as stick built barns, the contractors may as well go for modular sheds as for the other kinds. However, since cranes will be used for the installation of the modular structures, the contractors will have to account for any overhead obstacle such as billboards, signs, power lines, etc. But generally one won’t need to spend any huge costs to work around these obstacles. On the other hand, site preparation for stick built barns may require more elaborate digging or leveling work, meaning increased expenses again.

One also thinks that he will have a very limited set of choices regarding designs and materials when it comes to modular or storage sheds. However, this is not necessarily true. Modular garages today come in a variety of styles and options. You get to choose the number of swing or siding doors you want, the width of the center aisle and the number of stalls (in case of modular horse barns), as well as the kind of exterior finish you want for your barn.  Same is true with garages. The building contractors benefit by time on site, less site preparation and cost.  Consider the idea of modular barns and the benefits they bring.
