In a few of our last posts we have been focusing on our green building techniques because it is such an essential part Coastal Modular Group’s modular home construction. Today, we are proud to tell you we have ordered our first full-house pack of Eco Red Shield™ by Eco Building Products.
Why Eco Red Shield Is Important for Modular Home Construction
What does this mean? Well, for us it is another huge step in building a greener home, but for the homeowners it is peace-of-mind and an environmentally conscious decision they can feel great about.
The homeowners of this Bay Head, NJ project have chosen to use Eco Red Shield™ as the lumber to frame their ENTIRE home. Why is this such a smart choice? Not only does this lumber preserve the environment as much as possible, but the homeowners’ three-story, six-bedroom home will have enhanced, eco-friendly protection against mold, termites, wood-rot decay, and fire. Eco Building Products even backs their lumber with a 10-year warranty!
Can you imagine the image below filled with wasteful lumber that does not preserve the environment? Coastal Modular Group truly urges you to take this into consideration when building your modular home. With all of the benefits of Eco Building Products, green building is the smarter choice anyway.
Are you ready to take the right step in building your modular home? Call Coastal Modular Group today at (732) 800-2447. We will gladly show you the price difference and advantages of choosing our green building products like Eco Red Shield™. It may start with the frame, but eco-friendly products are available your your entire home.
Here at Coastal Modular Group we are making every effort to make a difference in home building. One of the biggest topics in modern home design is being building green, which is why we are proud to be Eco Defensive Certified builders. To make more moves in the right direction, our designs keep upon the latest trends in green building and designing so you will benefit from more efficient and environmentally friendly products.
Recently, we have found this amazing online series called “The Green Police.” The hosts, Michael Anschel and Carl Seville, recently attended the 2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo to find products you can truly call “green.” From masonry to irrigation and more, you get an inside look at some of the best products on the market.
Although you would expect us to focus on the masonry and wall paneling products because it relates directly to home construction, we found two products we thought our customers would love.
First, if you don’t already know, Coastal Modular Group has an in-house interior designer. When is comes to green interiors, many people may think re-purposed wood furnishings or maybe those CFL swirly light bulbs that were all the rage and saved you a few dollars each year. However, our designer is looking very forward to the mass acceptance of the new OLEDS ( organic LEDs) lighting systems. It only takes about two or three watts to power these lights, but rather than us explain, watch the pros this video:
OLEDS Soon To Make Modular Homes in NJ Much More Energy Efficient
The Second product we are very excited for is the Water Fence designed by 15-year-old Steven McDowell. Wouldn’t it be nice to save 320 gallons of water with just one fence panel? Plus, it looks way nicer than your average rain-barrel. Although we are in the rainy season, it is important to remember New Jersey has had pretty severe droughts in the past. See how awesome this fence looks and works in the following video:

Green Modular Homes NJ Residence Will Be Proud and Safe to Live In
What does it mean to be a Certified Eco Defensive Builder? Eco Building Products recently launched the Eco Defensive Program in order to better educate licensed home builders especially after Hurricane Sandy. These builders are educated on how to enhance traditional building processes in order to defend against rising tides, high winds, fires, bugs, rotting, and seismic activity. Of course for of our hard work, Coastal Modular Group received a signed & sealed diploma.
From the beginning of our NJ modular home company, our goal has been to help Hurricane Sandy victims. We were tired of seeing them get taken advantage of by companies outside of NJ that never finished the job and wasted precious time and money. You should not be homeless, and we are here to make sure you are back in a better built and affordable home.
Eco Building Products doesn’t just focus on educating builders, but also helping reduce impact on the environment. Coastal Modular Group has a similar stance as we build green modular homes in NJ. This environmental responsibility includes our resource efficiency to reduce carbon footprint and your new home build which will reduce heating, cooling, and other utility costs. You can even qualifying for green building rebates and mortgages, and an increased home value through green certification.
We would like to thank Eco Building Products for allowing us to take their certification course. It is an honor to work along a company that is so dedicated to better building. If you would like to learn more about the high standards of our NJ modular homes, contact Coastal Modular Group.
