Prefabricated houses can be the right choice to have a comfortable home, flexible, adaptable to every need and always cost certain. The offer is really wide between models in wood, steel or concrete, with very different prices and features depending on the uses and options chosen. CasaOmnia has created a guide to orient and choose the best prefabricated house of our dreams.

To build a prefabricated house you have to follow the same bureaucratic process of traditional houses, since it is to all intents and purposes a building. The first step, therefore, is geologic investigation. It is then up to the city government to grant or deny the construction permit and authorization.


The most popular material in green prefabrication is definitely wood , which is the ideal solution for environmental comfort and energy performance. Other materials used for prefabrication are concrete and steel. In comparing the precast concrete house versus the precast wood house, Imperiali is adamant, “The precast concrete house does not have the performance of wood, it is more of a convenience for the manufacturing company.”



Therefore, those who decide to demolish a property and subsequently build a prefabricated house can do so by taking advantage of the superbonus 110 . The reconstruction of the building must in any case respect the perimeter limits of the demolished building, thus configuring the typical case of intervention facilitated by the regulations in force.

But there’s more to it than that. Because whoever intervenes with the demolition and reconstruction of a building, commissioning a prefabricated house, is not only entitled to the superbonus 110, but also to the seismbonus, given and considered the characteristics of modular housing, highly performing not only from the energy point of view but also from the anti-seismic point of view.

It is important to note, in fact, that a prefabricated house guarantees the minimum energy performance requirements of the DM 26 June 2015. In the case of demolition and reconstruction, therefore, is ensured the improvement of at least two energy classes of the building or otherwise the achievement of the highest energy class


Michele Abbate tells us that “The pros of a current prefabricated house are the speed of construction, the greater precision with which the anti-seismic objectives are achieved, “. Enrico Azzimonti emphasizes manufacturing quality, explaining that “The more the production process of individual components is industrialized, the more you get a high quality product. High manufacturing quality implies more performance from an economic, managerial and maintenance point of view so that, over time, more benefits and fewer problems are obtained”.


Compared to the house built in traditional construction, the prefabricated house needs a change in perspective. This is because in order to buy a house it is therefore necessary to make the payment immediately and pay a minimum down payment of 40% before it arrives at the construction site; furthermore, it can be a problem to make changes during the course of work”. Among the cons, there is also the need for specialized workers because, as Michele Abbate explains, in Italy “The classic construction companies are more widespread and can be found much more easily in the area. No problem instead in terms of seismic, all prefabricated houses are adapted to meet the anti-seismic parameters.
