Why are your homes eco-friendly?

Our company's Eka Homes are eco-friendly for several reasons. Firstly, the timber we utilize is sourced from Scandinavian sustainable forestry practices, regulated by legislation that ensures a balance between production and environmental conservation. Harvested forests are required to undergo regeneration through either planned planting or natural processes, promoting sustainability.

Moreover, our Homes are designed to minimize waste during the factory construction process, reflecting our commitment to environmental responsibility. Additionally, energy efficiency is a key focus, achieved through high-quality insulation that enhances the homes' energy performance. By prioritizing sustainability and energy efficiency, our Eka Homes contribute to a greener and more environmentally conscious living environment.

Are Eka Homes more energy efficient than traditionally built homes?

Yes, Eka Homes stand out for their exceptional construction quality and energy efficiency. Thanks to the manufacturing process, our modular homes boast consistent quality and tighter seals than traditional houses. This results in improved temperature control, lower heating and cooling bills, and a more comfortable living environment with better ventilation and indoor air quality. Eka Homes can also include cost-saving appliances which contribute to energy efficiency.

Furthermore, our homes contribute to the reduction of asthma and epilepsy occurrences through advanced air systems and high-quality products, promoting better ventilation and optimal air circulation.

Do you provide foundations for your Eka Homes?

No, we ask that the customer provides and coordinates the construction of foundations for their Eka Home. Once the customer has organized this, one of our experienced operatives will investigate and review the foundations to assess if it is suitable and aligns with the planning documents we need to construct and deliver your home. Please note that the cost of this arrangement is the responsibility of the customer.

Do Eka provide subcontractors to complete foundations, groundworks, plumbing and electrics?

We would be delighted to recommend local contractors for these work positions.

We ask customers to coordinate subcontractors, such as groundworks, plumbers, electricians, and scaffolders. We will supply comprehensive plans to assist these subcontractors in their tasks. Please be aware that the cost of engaging subcontractors is the responsibility of the customer.

Additionally, Eka will coordinate local scaffolding and crane operators for assembling the structure. However, it's important to note that any associated costs will be borne by the customer.

Please be advised that we will not be held responsible for any delays or discrepancies arising from third-party involvement.
