RTM stands for ready to move homes and cottages. RTM Homes and Cottages offer a great alternative to site built homes with benefits of simplicity, affordability and quicker construction times. There are many benefits to purchasing an RTM from Zak's Building.
Read through some of these RTM facts so that you can make an informed choice about the options for building your new home.
There is some confusion surrounding the different terms builders use for different types of homes. We often hear people confusing RTMs with modular, mobile, or pre-fabricated construction techniques.
Ready-to-move homes are not modular or pre-fab, nor are they mobile. They are stick built homes that are placed on a permanent foundation, just like a house built by contractors from the ground up on your lot. The homes are built in a construction yard at Zak's, using qualified builders and following national building code regulations, inspected by certified building inspectors, then shipped by professional house movers to your site.
There are a number of time saving, cost saving and quality assurance benefits to choosing an RTM home, especially for residents in regions with fewer general contractors. The shortage of tradespeople can cause costly delays, getting a home built by a dedicated team is faster and more efficient.
Time savings, reduced hassle, and cost savings are three of the most common reasons that homebuyers choose to go with an RTM and for good reason. Zak's Building works in a controlled environment so there are no on-site issues that slow us down. Plus, you can get your foundation done while we're building your home - we don't need to wait for contractors to lay the footings.
Zak's Building has options to customize for commercial uses, machine and equipment sheds and building with large door access requirements.
