Although hurricanes are rare in this part of Florida, strict building codes and federal regulations have been established to ensure that manufactured homes are able to withstand winds of up to 110 mph. The builders that we work with all use a wide range of construction methods to meet and even exceed this requirement. These include trusses engineered to provide the highest level of durability, anchored down solidly to meet the codes. Additionally, many of the homes we build are designed so that windows and doors can be boarded up quickly once the home has been vacated.
No home, including traditional stick-built homes, can be guaranteed to withstand the most powerful hurricanes. However, there have been many advances in the design and engineering of manufactured homes, as well as improvements in materials and construction techniques over the years, that make them more durable than ever.
