Safety is a strength.
When installed properly, factory-built homes can withstand even the strongest wind. Case in point: Texas Tech’s C-130 Report submitted to the National Institute for Standards and Technology. The university used a C-130 Hercules military aircraft to simulate high winds and test the structural integrity of factory-built homes. The homes passed with flying colors.
In fact, during hurricanes Katrina and Rita, it wasn’t uncommon to find a factory-built home with little to no damage right down the street from a traditional wood home that had experienced serious wind damage.
