Hurricane Sandy is the second costliest hurricane after Hurricane Katrina with damages estimated to cost upwards of $60 billion. With 385,000 homes damaged or destroyed in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey, hundreds of thousands of people are working to rebuild their lives. With this in mind Blu Homes is offering a discount on their prefab homes for victims affected by the hurricane. The Massachusetts-based company has the capability to design, build and install new energy-efficient and hurricane-resistant homes in 5-9 months. They've also created an excellent infographic on hurricanes and housing in the US.
As the East Coast continues its long uphill battle to rebuild, a process which could take a decade, Blu Homes wants to join that effort with quickly-built prefab homes. Using durable materials and energy efficient design, the precision home builder is offering discounts for families affected by Hurricane Sandy. Homes can be built in as little as 4 months with another month to transport and install so that victims could be in their new home quickly.
Not only can victims get in a new home quickly, but they can also feel assured that their home will last through hurricanes and storms that will happen in the future. Blu Homes created an interesting infographic on hurricanes and housing  in the US and in it they explain how their homes will be able to last. Durable standing seam metal roofs last twice as long as asphalt shingles and outperform them during storms. Steel framing doesn’t rot or warp and won’t catch on fire like wood framing. High performance insulation maintains its R-value and addresses key building issues like mold and mildew, which are serious problems in areas affected by flooding. And finally durable fiber cement siding is able to withstand projectile debris in high winds.
Contact Blu Homes  to learn more about discounts for Hurricane Sandy victims, which apply for families who purchase between December 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
