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 [5] 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 [2] to learn more about discounts for Hurricane Sandy victims, which apply for families who purchase between December 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
