Today, many people are concerned about the environment and greener living. This is often a top consideration for homebuyers who want a greener, more efficient home. However, most homebuyers who are opting to build a home for themselves don't know of the green advantages in choosing the modular building system.

Modular construction in Suffolk, VA creates and builds homes with reduced construction waste. Many modular builders are also now using sustainable materials to scale down the carbon footprint of every home. When choosing a home builder, one way to ensure these builders are using greener technologies is to look for the "Green Seal Certified" logo on their website or portfolio. The Green Seal™ is awarded to excellent products that have minimal impact on the environment. To earn the seal, a product must comply to environmental standards by undergoing stringent evaluation and testing. Green Seal™ standards are predetermined to recognize the most environmentally preferable products currently available in the market.

Furthermore, Green Seal™ standard homes are energy efficient homes. This means that our modular homes have superior home insulation, windows, doors, and building materials.
