Benefits of Rebuilding With Modular Homes

The difference between a modular home and homes built using other methods is that the sections of your house are built at a separate location and then transported to your property and assembled there.

Here are some of the benefits of building a modular home:

  • Speed: Your modular home will be move-in ready much quicker than other building methods. When your home is fully constructed on your property, any little thing could set back your timeline, like a burst pipe. When you’re coordinating with your insurance company, staying on schedule is important.
  • Energy efficient: With the majority of construction occurring at a separate site, we use efficient building techniques that require less energy.
  • Customization: With a variety of flexible design options, you can get the exact look you want in your new home.
  • Solid materials: Oftentimes, our modular homes are stronger than the original home. With solid materials, you know you can rely on your new home for many years to come.

No matter your budget, you can find an affordable option, but you do need to keep other costs in mind when planning your rebuild. If your structural framing or foundation was compromised during the disaster, you will need to address it before we can assemble your new home.

Disasters Happen

Sometimes, bad things happen that are out of your control. Whether you experienced fire and smoke damage, water damage from a flood or wind damage from a hurricane or tornado, your home needs to be fixed fast. Thankfully, you and your family are okay, but your home is your personal oasis — when you lose that special place, your life can feel like it has been turned upside-down. 

After one of these disasters, you might face other dilemmas as well. Your insurance company may try to drag their feet before paying you for your claim. You may also have a policy with a loophole that doesn’t cover the specific damage your home has. And finally, you have to live without your home for potentially a long time. You have to put your possessions that weren’t damaged into storage and find a temporary home base.

Wanted to let you know that it was a unique pleasure to work with Westchester Modular Homes of Fairfield County. In particular, your quick response and attention to detail was particularly appreciated. The five Town Homes that you provided look beautiful. Once again, thanks for all your help.

Westchester Modular Homes of Fairfield helped us build our dream home in less than one year, which included demolishing the old house and preparing the property for the new structure. They worked very closely with us and walked us through every step, from initial layout to selecting the last detail. We are very happy with the final product!

I would like to write a long-overdue commendation to be put in the file of David Dillman of the Bethel office. We contacted WMHFC after the macroburst last May, and Dave was very enthusiastic about the project and his enthusiasm helped carry us through some dark periods. He was patient and thorough with our questions and always responded quickly. He helped design our new home and gave us freedom to change the existing plans as we saw fit. He and Joe Enright and Kevin McSherry made sure everything went according to their time frame as much as it was in their power. We are very satisfied with the work of WMHFC four months into our new home. I’d like to thank and commend David, Joe, and Kevin for their attention to detail and efforts to get us back and running.

   We recently had a new home built by Westchester Modular Homes and highly recommend this company. Our process started with the design phase. Our home consultant, Dave Dillman, guided us through every step of what was an overwhelming process.   
   When construction began, our project manager Don O’Brien went out of his way to assist us through this phase. His professionalism and patience helped lessen our stress of having a house built for the first time. His choice of contractors ensured that we received a high level of quality work. It was so exciting to watch our house come to life day by day.
   We love our new home and were very happy from start to completion. This has been an enjoyable experience with special thanks to the Westchester Modular Fairfield County team.
