Double Walled Insulation of Modular Homes

 

In general, relocatable homes have more building materials included in the construction. Built to withstand the riggers of multiple moves and demanding conditions.

Once the modules of a portable home are assembled, there is a ‘double wall effect’. Where the modules meet, as each module is a mini building in it’s own right, when sandwiched together, the internal walls are effectively doubled.

 

The benefits of doubled internal walls are –

  • extra insulation properties
  • sound proofing effect
  • additional structural strength

 

These insular properties are especially valuable if you live in a hot or cold climate, as the extra insulation helps to further regulate internal temperatures. Providing a more comfortable living space whilst reducing your heating and cooling costs. Or, if you live near an airport, highway or industrial area with high noise, the double walling makes your home a lot quieter inside. Great for night-shift workers who sleep during the day, or an elderly family member who is poorly and frail.

An exception to the rule would be granny flats, as they are usually one module and therefore do not have the doubled wall effect.

    Hi. We are considering a small granny flat for my mother-in-law and we live beside a noisey highway. Are we able to get extra insulation anyway? Thanks. Kate

    Hello Kate.

    Yes, you can ask your building contractor for more insulation. Tell him your situation so he has a full understanding of your needs. To help you make a more informed decision, have a look at this PDF about insulation.
