There are still far too many victims of Hurricane Sandy who are looking to replace their homes. The destruction was so vast in New York and New Jersey, that traditional home builders and local contractors are strapped from too little labor, too little time, and too much demand. But there is good news: out-of-state modular home manufacturing companies are able to accommodate replacement home needs in a timely manner. Because of the many benefits of modular construction, modular homes for hurricane Sandy victims has become the norm in New York and New Jersey.
Basically, with modular construction, consumers are outsourcing the labor, materials and construction process. This allows them to get their new, custom designed modular home, faster than others who may have contracted their new home construction with a local builder months ago.
Modular homes are built to the same or higher standards than traditional homes, but in hurricane prone areas, modular homes are the better choice. Built to withstand up to 140 mph winds and with reinforced joints, modular homes are sturdy and safe and more secure than traditional construction.
Modular homes can also be placed on pilings that are encased in cement and meet all new hurricane specifications. And, because modular homes can be custom designed, they can also be built to the original footprint in order to align with local zoning laws.
