Modular Construction: Rebuilding your home using modular construction will shorten the build time while at the same time building a high quality home built to the local building codes. During a disaster like the Cajon Pass Fire, local contractors are overwhelmed with the number of requests to build new homes. At this time, there is a shortage of tradesmen working in the construction field to build the homes ASAP. Having your home assembled in a factory shortens the rebuild time by months, and possibly years. Homes built using modular construction are built using the same materials and codes as site built homes, but are built “stronger and better” as they are built in a climate controlled environment by a team of experienced tradesmen in a matter of weeks, not months or years.
Modular Construction can help you, your family members, friends and acquaintances in your community to get back to the life you knew before the devastating wildfires. Visit USModular, Inc. website for information on building with modular construction.
