Frequently Asked Questions

What are your qualifications?

Homes built by Empire are constructed in the factory under strictly controlled environmental conditions. With continuous expert supervision, alongside C.S.A. inspections, we ensure that all construction meets or exceeds C.S.A., CMHC Residential housing standards, and The National Building Code.  Empire Modular Homes is also licensed and bonded with the Alberta Government and a member of the New Home Warranty Program in Alberta.

How long does a home take to build?

As a premier modular home builder, we pride ourselves on quality over quantity. We are not an assembly based plant and each home is custom built from beginning-to-end with no pre-built walls, floors or roof. This makes our homes truly unique to many other modular builders.

To maintain our high standards, and as a reflection to our commitment to excellence, each home built will take an average of four months to properly complete.  This allows for all trades to have the necessary time-frame to finish your construction and provide a quality build.  Come see the difference quality makes!

What is the delivery process?

After construction, your pre-finished Empire home is shipped to your site in modular sections. By using a crane, the sections are placed on your basement or foundation, where they are then secured together.  The finishing site crew completes all the necessary work (ie; roof ,interior walls, exterior, flooring, ect.) to marry each module together, transforming your Empire Modular Home into a home.
