Hurricane-Proof Modular Homes

In Virginia, where, as we know, hurricanes and severe storms can hit at any time, homebuyers require stronger and more resilient homes that can withstand strong wind and floodwater. However, when there is a demand for sturdier foundations and construction, this usually also translates to higher construction costs. Fortunately, modular construction can provide tough and robust homes at an affordable price and in a more timely manner.

Modular homes are built and designed from top quality materials and designed using cutting edge technology to produce more durable and resilient homes. In hurricane stricken locations, modular builders even fortify these homes to resist and defy up to 180 mph strong winds. With a series of on-site QA inspections, the modules are guaranteed to meet or exceed local and state building codes.

During construction, modules are glued and screwed to make them sturdier and able to withstand transport. This means they are sturdier homes than those built through traditional stick-built construction. Steel is applied to anchor and stabilize the structure so it can stay tough against excessive winds. Modular pilings with built-in smart vents are also applied in homes situated in flood prone areas so, in case of flooding, water can't accumulate and will flow in and out of the vents.

In spite all these amazing features, modular home cost are still affordable because this building system makes completion time faster with less materials waste. Modular building systems employ a controlled environment and advanced technology to make this possible. Contact Tidewater Custom Modular Homes for strong, hurricane-proof homes.

Homebuyers who are building a new home can often be disappointed by construction delays. This is often a problem with traditional construction. Builders often are unable to meet the planned completion date due to many factors including scheduling, materials, and weather delays. If you want to avoid construction delays and have a hard move-in date, consider modular construction for building your new home.

The Tidewater Custom Modular Homes modular building system in Suffolk, VA offers a quicker, more reliable construction process. This means you can move into your new home without construction delays. Modular construction is done in a highly-secured and climate-controlled environment where weather delays won't affect the ongoing construction. Weather is the main reason for home construction delays. With the unpredictable weather in Virginia, traditional construction is prone to delivery delays. Additionally, because construction is a factory-like process, there are no contractor scheduling delays. Each step is performed systematically. Materials are ordered and stored in the building, so materials theft is never an issue either, as it is in traditional construction.

In addition, modular homes are built with advanced technology that is not employed in stick-built homes. Thus, they are precisely-cut and are subject to constant QA tests. Because the modules are systematically designed, assembly at the permanent site takes just a few days to complete. In less time, homeowners can occupy and enjoy their new homes faster.
