Read what FEMA and Bob Villa have to say about the staying power of modular homes during Hurricane Andrew. 

“In a FEMA study following the Hurricane Andrew in 1992, it was found that wood-frame modular homes in hard-hit Dade County, Florida, stood up to the devastating winds better than stick-built homes. The finding states: ‘Overall, relatively minimal structural damage was noted in modular housing…’The report also points out that the construction method of modular homes ‘provided an inherently rigid system that performed much better than conventional residential framing.”
