frequently asked questions

Choosing the right company to build your new home can be an overwhelming experience. McGrath Homes has maintained its benchmark quality since the 1960s - as leading innovators of the modular industry, you can be confident knowing that every McGrath home is built to stand the test of time. Discover how our unique build practices result in superior construction quality that sets us apart from other builders.

What is a modular home?

A modular home is whatever you want it to be because each home we design is different. Modular homes are prefabricated, constructed off-site and made to order, then transported and installed on-site. They adhere to the highest quality standards and are virtually indistinguishable from convention builds.

How do you build a modular home?

Our modular homes are manufactured at our fully serviced specialist construction yard in Perth and then expertly transported and installed to your location. We follow a streamlined construction process to ensure every single aspect of your home - from the plumbing and electrics to the cabinetry and flooring - meets the highest building standards.

How much does a modular home cost?

McGrath has modular home options to suit any lifestyle, location and budget. There are many variables involved in modular homes that impact the cost, such as the home design, the number of bedrooms, any specific modifications, the location and the complexity of transportation. Our smarter construction processes mean that whatever modular home you choose, we’ll be able to minimise both the build time and the cost.

Where can you build a modular home?

McGrath can build anywhere in Western Australia. No matter how remote the location, how challenging the environment, or how difficult the construction conditions, we’ll be able to tailor a solution to meet your requirements.

What information do you need about our block?

We need as much information about your block as possible, including any surveys, information from LandCorp, the size, dimensions, elevation, pitch and orientation. This will help us determine the best modular home to make the most of your block and outlook. If you prefer to prepare your own building site, this must be done in accordance with building regulations, including compacting requirements.

Can I customise my modular home?

Yes, you certainly can. Modular homes offer incredible flexibility compared with conventional builds. Changes to the size, configuration of rooms or the footprint of the concrete pad are simple and may not incur any additional cost.
