FAQS

Design & Materials

A KITUR module consists of a hot dipped galvanized steel chassis with a cement floor, walls and roof of Structural Insulated Panels (sandwich panel). The unique design of our chassis, prevents the house from having direct contact with the ground which protects from moisture entering the house as well as seismic activity. Modules are used to create almost any configuration of spaces and can be made at any size (within our maximum dimensions) to suit your site and design. 

Yes you can. Our homes are modular both in concept and design, our construction is extremely easy to add to in the future and we frequently design projects for clients that are built in different stages. This means you can build what you can afford now and add to your modular home later.

We have a show house at our location in Albufeira (Algarve) that is open without appointment, please check our website for days and times. We also will gladly receive you in our factory in Águeda, please submit the contact form on our website to schedule an appointment at the factory.

Logistics, Site Preparation & Energy Efficiency

Yes, you will need to prepare your land for installation of the house. Typically land preparation involves leveling and compacting the land as well as preparing infrastructures such as electricity, water and sewage. In the case of our fixed modular homes ,this process also entails the pouring of a cement foundation. As far as cost, it is totally dependent on the land. KITUR will do a site survey for every client as part of the process of providing you with your home. As a result of the site survey, we can provide you with a proposal for all of the above services.

Yes. The Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) that forms the “shell” of each modular home generates a thermal property that makes them an ideal choice for extreme climatic conditions. In combination with double glazed windows and doors, our exterior walls "ETICS" system and our unique chassis design , the ambient temperature of the space is both constant and comfortable with very little requirement for additional heating and cooling.
