Frequently Asked Questions

CUBO MODULAR SYSTEM

Yes. If you're not 100% sure on getting one of our standard CUBO designs, we can custom design an affordable CUBO just for you!

Our custom design projects start in one of two ways: 1) you choose one of our standard models to begin designing from, or 2) you provide a floor plan that we then CUBO-fy to our modular system.

Our custom home design service is one of the most affordable rates in the market. Starting at just ₱1,000 per square meter, you'll get access to our team of architects and engineers who will make sure your CUBO will last for generations.

To sign up for our Custom CUBO Design Service, just go to https://cubo.ph/pages/custom-cubo.

Our first generation models are no longer available through our standard catalog but you can still get them through our Custom CUBO Design Service.

Just sign up at https://cubo.ph/pages/custom-cubo and notify the CUBO Specialist who will get in touch with you that you want one of our old models.

Yes. All our CUBO Homes use a heavy duty steel typhoon and earthquake strap system to tie the structural members together in compliance with the International Residential Code.

Additionally, all our CUBOs are bolted down onto the foundation to guarantee that your home can withstand any extreme weather conditions and exceed the demands of harsh Philippine climate.

While no natural wood material is ever completely fire-proof, our engineered bamboo adheres to global fire standards with a B2 Fire Rating based on DIN 4102 Fire Resistance Test Standard. This corresponds to normal inflammability as a global building material.

For our windows and canopies, we use polycarbonate because of its high impact resistance.

Unlike glass, polycarbonate does not easily shatter or break when subjected to impact. This makes it a very safe window material as it won’t create sharp shards even when hit by strong typhoon winds or debris.

Polycarbonate looks just like glass and performs the same way in terms of visual clarity. It is also UV-protected and shields your home against heat and UV radiation.

Engineered bamboo is a highly renewable building material with superior strength.

In terms of engineering properties, engineered bamboo can be up to 14 times stronger than concrete and local hardwoods like narra, kamagong, and yakal.

It only takes three years for bamboo to mature to be fit for construction, so it is highly renewable.

Yes. Our engineered bamboo is pre-treated against termites and other wood-boring insects.

Additionally, we use an industrial grade abrasion-resistant coating to give your CUBO Home added protection against pests and the elements.

Yes. CUBO is perfect for these types of locations.

Our CUBO Homes are designed to withstand the harshest weather. Our engineered bamboo is pretreated against termites and wood-boring insects and is resistant to moisture.

Unlike shipping containers or galvanized iron modular homes, CUBO does not rust or corrode even in salty seaside environments.

Yes. All our CUBOs come with electrical and plumbing systems including switches, outlets, light fixtures, kitchen fixtures, and bathroom fixtures.

We know that you would like to visit a CUBO Home soon and see the beauty of the product for yourself. We will be posting on our social media pages once it is deemed safe!

For international transactions, installation, shipping, and handling must be arranged by the homebuyer.

We can only deliver up to the port of exit in the Philippines. CUBO will not be able to install or provide any warranty if the product is to be shipped abroad.

Liability will be transferred once items are delivered or picked up.

If you want to build a CUBO on an existing structure, we need to first inspect the structure and review the as-built engineering and architectural plans.

This is so we can check its structural integrity and determine if it is fit to build a CUBO structure on it.

Please send your engineering and architectural plans to info@cubo.ph along with more details on your project for review.

Bamboo is natural heat and sound insulator. This is the reason why our traditional Filipino bahay kubo can remain cool and comfortable even in the middle of a rice field.

Because of its natural insulation properties, we do not include additional insulation inside our building panels..

However, if you wish to add insulation, you can do so through our Custom CUBO Design Service (https://cubo.ph/pages/custom-cubo).

Let us help you. Since easement requirements vary depending on the classification of your property, we need to check your property information first.
